This would be useful.....
If EVERY SINGLE SERVER ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH weren't filled to capacity.
Well, it's the thought that counts. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

D'oh! double post!

But now I can say that I was able to download it and played it, and I'm relieved to say it was pretty good! It didn't have too much focus on the horror element, and went to where it was needed: The combat. Not the least bit repetitive, either. And YES, doom III. I AM talking to you. There weren't many weapons in the demo. A sub machine gun, (I abandoned that early on) a pistol, (Didn't fire a single shot with that) a shotgun, (A good weapon throughout the demo) an assault rifle, (Great for middle-range fighting) and my personal favorite: The nailgun! (Name should speak for itself.)
The slow motion element isn't just a gimmick. Supposedly, the main character has incredibly high reflexes, so there isn't any stupid reason for you to have that ability. Useful, too. The combat is really fast paced when not using it, so I always used slo-mo (As it's called in game) near the beginning of a fight to wipe out most of a group of soldiers, and mop up the rest. Using melee attacks and slo-mo in conjuction is really effective, and especially fun when using a jump-kick onto a lower enemy. Smack!

Yes, this game is scary. The demo alone had many "-What the?" moments and a few "HOLY KRAP!" as well. And that girl in the red dress. That girl is everything in The Ring in one horrifying little package.

The AI also adds to the demo. The enemy AI is really smart, doing things like diving behind cover, jumping through broken windows, barking commands and retreating when grenades are put into play. Overall, a fun game, and the full version will definatly be worth a buy!
That is, if you can afford to buy new underwear in the process. Believe me, you'll need it.

...wow...this game is BRILLIANT!!!
Yep.. its a lovely and sick mixture of the "ring" (not because of the girl..) and a little Rainbow six..lol

I also love the tiny detals...like..when you turn, the girl will appear and disappear on the next corner. Brilliant..

My fav part is the bleeding hallway..ooh yeah..the door at the end of that hallway..http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif *shivers*

I'm not that type of gal who can be easily frightened , but that door scared the **** outof me. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

My god...at last a SCARY horror game!!

I'm in love with F.E.A.R.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

Sounds awesome Derwen. Another reason why i cant wait for my exams to finish.

Why i can wait for my exams to finish:

I agree with those who say it's a good game, I really enjoyed this demo and was pissed off when it just ended http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. But I think they didn't manage to make the game "scary", or at least as scary as I expected it to be. So, for me, there was some "wow, holy ****!" moments but I didn't sh*t my pants during the demo http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. So all in all, FEAR is an excellent action game, with cool graphics and effects, and brilliant atmosphere. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif
(The only game that managd to scare me since System Shock 2 and Thief, was Thief3 - the cradle level. now that was scary.. )

Yeah, the bits with the little girl dissapearing were brilliant. What impressed me most though was the enemy AI. It always kept you on your toes.

Unless you (Literally) get the jump on them. Right before the courtyard, from a 2nd floor window, if you kill the faraway gaurd with a headshot from the nailgun, the other one closer to you will slowly go up the stairwell near the door. If you open the door and turn on slow-motion, you could jump off the ledge and jump-kick the gaurd in the head.
To quote family guy: "This demo is freakin' sweet!"

Ya it's an awesome demo. My favorite weapon is the plasma weapon that kills them with one shot and melts the flesh right off of their bones leaving a full skeleton on the ground.

Going down a ladder and seeing the girl was... weird...
I didnt want to turn around in the hallway scene, and just moved backwards, which also worked.

Remember the stairwell that leads to an office full of 4-5 enemies? A double flight of stairs?
Well, if you keep walking forward, you'll see a security camera room with a (Dead) ATC gaurd, a reflex booster, (Lets you use slow motion longer) And, lo and behond, A PLASMA GUN!

You know what I can't understand?
In the demo you can use a flashlight AND a gun at the same time.

We all know this is impossible.

Heh, yeah, in Doom 3 anyway. I've always felt that was a contrived game decision on the part of the developers, just to make it a little harder/more scary.

Not at all! If you read the text carefully (right before you enter the tunnel) it says: HEADLIGHT so you dont need to hold it in your hand. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif its possible.

The best thing IMO is the slow motion. You can see bullets flying and you can take enemies down by smashing them with ur legs http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
