FEAR is a game which relies on its excellent enemy AI to deliver an enjoyable experience, the in-game graphics are far from bad, with a nice slow-motion (matrix style) effect which does add to the game play overall. However the maps are quite dull (office complexes) with very monotone colors. The models are highly detailed with high resolution textures and they look great there's also a very convincing lighting engine which casts shadows correctly to create the desired atmosphere of 'FEAR'. I loaded up the training level were u get in touch with a 'very special girl' for the first time.
F.E.A.R. is one of the most graphics demanding games at this moment. The Geforce 7 never had any chance at 1600x1200 with 4xAA, providing stuttering gameplay and a very low average frame rate. OCZ's 8800GTX again doubles the performance which made this game play very fluent in most situations, but the game really is enjoyed best at very high frame-rate as frame drops can be quite noticeable in the game.
