F.3.A.R. Thoughts

Played through the first few hours of F.3.A.R. and I have to say I am really enjoying it. My biggest complaint is how much on rails it feels, but there are some parts that get away from that too. The graphics are solid although not groundbreaking. I am getting really good framerates at 3240x1920 resolution and the game is VERY forgiving to low framerates as well. Their use of motion blur takes some getting used to, but it really helps soften up the immersion factor wall allowing you to really get into the game. As for the story, it does not really feel like a F.E.A.R sequel, but no biggy. The single player gameplay is very fun and I finally had to turn the difficulty down from Fearless because I kept getting my ass kicked. AI is about an 8 out of 10 and the animations are very good. I think it is a solid buy if you have any interest in the franchise. When it hits $30 or $35, it will be a solid buy for sure. Lots of fun to be had and does not feel like console port at all. Thank you god. And I am looking forward to going back through the missions and playing as my brother. I have been told that is well worth the effort so make sure you do that.
