I just recently installed F.E.A.R. and I had only so-so expectations.
I have a Radeon 9800 graphics card and a gig of RAM on my 2.5ghz p4.
I just let the game auto detect the settings, it set everything to medium, which shocked me considering I can play Doom3 and Farcry on High - Highest settings.
I left it on medium however, and even on that setting this game looked better than both Doom and farcry on high.
The gunfights are crazy awesome, as long as you have decals on, you can actually see the missed shots do some real damage in a room...example: You walk into a room full of boxes and lights and such. Two enemies on the other side, you just go nuts on each other, and you'll realize that the mess you make up the room is much more than just bullet holes in every thing....unlike the dissappointment that Doom and Farcry....
The AI is the most realistic I've seen yet too! and they're RELENTLESS! I ran outside of a building only to find about 10 guys shooting at me in this parking lot...I ran away, literally half way back through the level, up a couple of floors and such...they followed me, I didn't even notice them hiding behind corners and stuff...
I only played the first couple of levels, but this game is AMAZING so far!
