After a week or so of tinkering around I got around to finishing the game...
Computer: Amd 2600 2.0Ghz ATI Sapphire 9600 Pro 2nd Edition. 1 Gig ram. 7200 speed HD NTFS system yes it is partitioned ( I know that slows it down)
I would love to upgrade but just don't have the money too busy wasting my money on this game.
Final Thoughts on the game.
Pros: Graphics - Graphics were good, I like the wall effects and being able to blow bodies completely in half with the shotgun :D. I really like blood in games.
Gameplay - Some of the gameplay was good... Occaionally it was fun to blow a few guys away in a matter of seconds... I also Liked being able to control my own health that was a big improvment from previous games.
Guns - The guns were just plain cool. Esspecially like the one that turns people into skeletons.
Comedy - The TPS report thing was just plain funny.
Cons: Graphics - Graphics were good but not optimized Monolith needs to release a patch to speed it up a bit. (Biggest gripe)
Gameplay - Althought it was fun being able to blow guys away rather quick...It made the game too easy... Just run in the room turn on your reflexes and blast people away with the shotgun... by the end of my reflexes without taking any hits I already had the room cleared... However they kinda fixed that with enemies having enough power to blow you away rather quickly without reflexes. But still game was easy. (played on moderate) And it just didn't have that whole Im a real soldier feeling... more like I'm neo off the matrix feeling. Not being able to kill that fat dude was kinda annoying... when he first crossed my path I wanted revenge Its not fair I didn't get it. I mean they could of at least let me kill him the second time around to the gate entrance.... Also game failed to scare... hence the name "FEAR".... weakness.
Plot - Lame lame lame lame. A rip off of the ring, with a bit of a clone plot too it. Wasn't impressed with the girl thing. (if she was worried about losing her baby, why the hell was she trying to kill me.)
BTW: The whole mod about taking the language out of the game because the "producer was offended" sounds like a bullshit. He would of known earlier, before it was released. And after playing manhunt it has just as much language and Im sure if he noticed it in FEAR he probally would of told his engineers to lay of the cussing after the released ManHunt.
Im interested in hearing your nay says please respond.
Sweet crap you are an ignorant fool. He doesn't mind violence but cursing isn't something he particularly cares for so he removed it. In case there are other people (and there are!) who share his opinion he released it. You don't mind so don't d/l it and DON'T BITCH ABOUT IT! Comedy - There was none. The TPS report was a nice "cameo", but it wasn't funny. Plot - So what if it sucked? Most games have crappy, last-minute plots anyway, be lucky this one was passable. Overall, my review on your review was that it's your opinion and I don't agree in many places, but I respect it. You could learn a lesson. But yes, F.E.A.R. does rock, even if it wasn't scary.
I wouldn't go so far as to call me an "ignorant fool" , If you read what I posted there was as much cursing in this game as there was in previous Monolith games. Thus if he had any sense at all he would of done somthing about it when Manhunt was released. Who in there right mind prefers violence over language?
The comedy besides the TPS reports was also that fat guy eating cheetos. Ohh and that black dude throwing the mack on that lady after the plane crashed. And the elevator scene where your with the fine looking lady where you keep stopping at every floor was funny.
"Most Games have crappy last minute plots", I can think of a number of games with good plots and good endings.
I appreciate you being honest, I too respect your opinion. However I still think FEAR was extremely overated. The graphics and weapons are all it has going for it, and the graphics still need to be optimized.
Before they made the game they should of sat down a little longer and dicussed an interesting plot. They have 10-20+ people working on the game, and they could of done alot of brainstorming. This is not including all the other people involved... just the primary people.
I admit, the graphics aren't optimized well. Unless you're running a super computer you're stuck at medium-high. I said most. There are lots of games with good plots, but most are crappy. Still, he prefers it one way, you prefer it another. He's OFFENDED by bad language but not violence. Personally, I somewhat agree. I don't really care to hear f-bomb after f-bomb, but I don't mind seeing cartoony violence because it's fake, cursing isn't.
I don't spend enough time here

everyone should have their say, if bad language is offensive to someone then its their deal, dont think we can judge.
I think you guys are missing the point about what I was saying about the language mod.
I personally beleive it was a last ditch effort to get rid of some bad reviews on the language. Thus his statement of "was offended by the language" sounds too me like bullshit...
I don't believe he is telling the truth. Hes just making a politically correct mod, and a speech to back it.
I'm not saying that im right... it's an assumption. But a very valid one.
Yes yes I know:
"assumption is the mother of all f*ck ups" or "when you assume you make and A$$ out of U and ME"
Uh, yeah, right. You're missing the point: YOU aren't offended. HE was. HE fixed it for himself and thought that others CAN (not WILL, not FORCED TO, but CAN) download it for themselves if they don't care to hear bad language after every word!
