Who all was in the Fileplanet beta? And more importantly, who all is in the pre-order beta? I know I am ;-) I think that the game's pretty awesome in multiplayer. I dunno if I'm allowed to say this, and I seriously hope that it's fine (and I'm not even giving anything away, just my impression on the game), but here're my feelings on multiplayer. My brother said that FEAR looks like it plays like Counter-Strike, and frankly, it kinda does. You have the whole "movement penalty" for your guns, but some guns have lower or higher penalties than others. For example, the shotgun has a lower movement penalty than, let's say, an assault rifle. The nail gun is pretty strong, but kind of innaccurate and the rate of fire is kinda low. Personally, I like the submachine gun (SMG). It has a good rate of fire, and if you can manage to get nice headshots (it takes time, I've only played once :-P) then it is a worthy weapon...that and the reload time is like 1 second (and that's no exaggeration, it reloads fast). I dunno what else to say...I didn't notice any bugs, per say...except in the video test. Two or three times I noticed a lock-up where the characters would stop moving, and it causes the test to stop twice in the same part. After that, it caused my sound to stop working. So I actually played a game without sound ^_^" It didn't make a big difference, but I wanted to hear all the shells dropping and the slo-mo effects. Anyways, that's all I have for now...

It really didn't make a big difference. No one ever snuck up behind me...except once, and they killed me with one of the melee attacks (which are awesome, by the way).
