and a scary game to boot, I've never been scared before like this in a game. Doom III didn't scare me, basically because it was repetative, now this game doesn't look repetative, the scares are more realistic and the little girl in it really creeps me out.

Adding a feeling of mystery to a game is part of what scares people, DOOM iii had no mystery (why is why it failed in the scare department, scarying only small children and weak-minded adults).

I don't know what I think looks better actually, the Doom engine or the Fear engine. It's kind of hard to decide, just look at the games on the Doom tech like Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, Quake IV and Prey. They all look great but I'm not sure if they look as good as Fear. Fear really is a nice engine but my pc can run the Doom engine better, maybe we'll see more of what it's capable of in the future.

Doom III doesnt actully look all that great - but if the engine looks better than the HL2 engine then they must have one heck of a graphics engine in that game. How do the physics stack up to HL2?

in my opinion on the fear physics compaired to hl2 is i think hl2 is better at least so far the ragdoll on fear gets kinda gay like there bodies goin through walls but to what i know i havent seen that happen in hl2 except in gmod where its forced and the explosiv barrels in fear are weird they like disapper into nothingness after u run into them FEAR physics needs some more tweakin in my opinion

offcource fear is going to look better than HL 2 thats becuase D3 and HL2 are from last year, now they can pump more deatil in to the game as to oppsoed as last year.

Mizzzzzly's right, Half Life 2 was released roughly a year ago now so it's not surprising that something will look better than it. As for Fear's physics I thought they were pretty good, I like the ragdolls and everything and mine don't usually clip through walls unless I nail them through lol.

Don't forget, the game is REALLY REALLY short. PC Gamer November 05 said, "10 hours." I thought HL2 was just making up crap as they went along and at the end it was like a lame sci-fi movie. Doom3 was just plain crap. FEAR looks pretty. That's all I think about it. But considering the game is much newer than HL2 [and the physics engine puts HL2 to shame] and Doom3, it's no surprise it looks much better. Even on the lower end rigs like mine [as compared to the recommened specs]. I'm looking forward to playing FEAR very slowly and exploring everything.

10 hours isnt that bad, well its probally going to be a buget title like $39.99, ill still get FEAR evens if its full price............ yes Doom 3 was kinda a disapointment, but nothin will outdo HL 2 cuz its like a mother of all games.

Fear a budget title lol. What a laugh. I'm sure it will be released full price seeing as it's probably the most anticipated game of 2005. As for a games length, I always like to play through slowly to find all the secrets. It probably only took the guy 10 hours because he was running from room to room gunning everything down and shitting himself lol.
