I just finished playing it and holy shit it was fun. Here's a link to a preview of the game and the demo download:

pc.gamespy.com/pc/fear/638950p1.html

Very atmospheric and fun. My anemic system was able to run it at 1024x768 without a hitch.

It's fun, but I still think Doom III was done better.

I'll probably end up buying it anyways.

Doom III had more of a "GOTCHA!" kind of scare tactic to it. Judging from this demo it's a crawl into your mind and have you saying holy fuck what is that....

Kinda like the Silent Hill games.

I was at a friends house last night and we installed it and played a bit...

The shadow effects rock!

(BTW he was using a Radion X850GT)

I always forget to check Gamespy for coming releases. Looks like it's going be a good season for gaming: Galactic Civilizations II, Civ IV, SG-1, new Ghost Recon...

Hope my system can handle them. I wasn't planning on upgrading until the new Operation Flashpoint came out.

I hadn't even heard a new O.F. was coming out. That should be good stuff.

Tried the demo and it ran shittastically on my computer. I'll let you know if I think it's badass when I get a new rig

Runs as smooth as can be on my main gaming system. 7800GTX is your friend.

$$$ is also my friend, but has been out of town for a while on sabbatical .

When I get bored I go to IBUYPOWER and customize a rig with an Athlon 4800+ dual core running a pair of 7800GTXs in SLI.

The demo was done well, and looked great on the LCD with the geforce 6600.

Yeah it's a pretty badass demo IMO, not because of anything scary but the slow-mo "bullet-time" stuff mixed w/ the sweet sweet particle and bullet hit effects systems and pretty decent enemy AI makes for some AWESOME gunsfights. Something Doom3 lacked entirely. I was personally incredibly bored w/ Doom III, this kicks it's tail, hopefully the full game doesn't get too wacky w/ ghosts or whatever and ruin it...

I can run it pretty well on my Althon 2200+ w/ 1gig of ram and a 9600 Pro.

The enemy AI is defintely sweet. Hearing them call for backup and jumping over obstacles to get to you is badass!

My favorite moment of the demo was suppressing the badguys with the G36-type rifle, then lobbing a grenade into the room they were hiding in. Grenade explodes, both bad guys eat it, and everything is completely silent, a lamp in the room is swinging from the explosion, casting light everywhere, and dust hangs in the air
