So far, I can think of these points, but feel free to staty any opinions.
1- What do you think of the graphics?
I am asking that because I still think that even though it has some good graphics and effects, its too 'plastic' like and though it has awsome dynamic lighting, I still think Half Life 2 still comes out on top.
2- What do you think of the horror aspect?
I ask this because I think I've played and watched too much Silent Hill and Fatal Frame to be really freaked out by most of their tactics. The only times I was like "HOLY CRAP!" was when Alma went all 'The Ring' on me and that was only like two or three times in the entire game. Everything else was just a slight chill and a short heart beat quicken. Now it didn't scare me much when in the game, but I know that it will have some effects for a few days now that I'm through it, I know myself and I know that my mind will be trying to understand and analyse the storyline and put everything together for a while.
3- What do you think of the combat aspect?
I ask this because I thought it was very repetative. I played it on low difficulty so I can't dis everything about the combat but I think I might be greatful that going from room to room didn't mean fighting like 10 enemies in the process like in Doom 3.
4- What did you think about the story and ending?
5- What do you think of the 'beaten path' the game has you go through?
I ask this because there is just about no sense of freedom in this game, to get from one point to the next is a set of small hallways thats all set out for you where to go.
6- What do you think about the character and relationships between characters?
I ask this because I noticed that this game is a failure at having a 100% first person prospective and trying to impliment the 'you are that character' aspect like in Half Life 1 and 2. It does well in having it all in first person because you can see your feet and shadow, but from the limited conversations and time with other friendly characters, I felt no ties between anybody, exept annoyance for that one F.E.A.R. guy who doesn't like you in the begining, I forgot his name, but I know he is Polish and I like him for that reason only. Polish pride baby!
7- What do you think about the weapons? (Thanks Heretic Money, totally forgot about that, they weren't great)
I thought they weren't too great, you reload weapons at an ungodly speed and some weapons you don't even get to see reload like the shotgun and assault rifle which are lowered off the screen and brought back up reloaded.
Like I said, please share your thoughts on anything about F.E.A.R, I was just thinking of those topics above right off the top of my head.
I also would like to know, at the part when you lead the bomb guy to Biship and the fire alarm goes on, did anybody go back to the elevators where the bomb guy got came entered from? Cause I did and I could have sworn I saw a stealth effect run by me earlier and I didn't realize I had to start again on the beaten path so I went back to the elevator area and found one of those enemies that have the stealth cammo and he was just standing there by the elevator and wasn't doing anything and I couldn't hit him.
Anybody else think Half Life 1 and 2 are still the FPS king?
