Last week GameSpot ran hands-on impressions of VU Games' ghostly upcoming PC first-person shooter F.E.A.R. This week gamers can get their own hands on the new demo at GameSpot DLX and find out for themselves if the game will give them chills or just leave them cold.

The 662MB single-player demo features an introductory cutscene and part of a mission from the game. Stepping into the shoes of a new recruit in a group of hardened spookbusters known as First Encounter Assault and Reconnaissance (hence the acronym), gamers will use heavy weapons and a limited ability to slow down time (as in Max Payne) to storm a compound held hostage and discover the secret behind some supernatural happenings there.

Developed by Monolith Productions (No One Lives Forever, The Matrix Online), F.E.A.R. is rated M for Mature and will retail for $49.99 when it releases on October 11.
