Go try F.E.A.R. on for size


Great game. But the PC workload...is incredible. Actually, so is the game, but wow, I have to run at 800x600, almost everything is 'off' except FSAA. You want the best rig to run this one on high graphics with acceptable FPS

You "Perfect" mode players will be in for a surprise with F.E.A.R.

Cool thing: there's an in-game test to rate your selected options versus FPS, and gives you a break down of min, max, and average FPS during a short game sequence

From all the reviews on the latest vid-card high-end machines I've seen, I don't think there's any game that takes as big a hit when AA is enabled. It can bring the best to its knees.

I have never seen the demo, I couldn't tell you what's in it


I think you may find the full install has some extra stuff options-wise

With out the FSAA, character models are very, very jagged

I got the demo to run alright by turning off soft shadows and volumetric lights.

Bilinear filtering (maybe I'm blind but I can't see any difference from ansiotropic)

Other settings at medium except Lights which I set to Max..which is scarier...

The sound, the atmosphere is very well done. First time I saw youknowwho in that underground passage...eeeek actually got the chills eheh.

tell me about it. amd 64 3000,6800gt,1gig.
i run it in 1024/768 most on max. when i cut on 2X AA and texture res max i dip in the 20's and get a amount of stuttering. iv found the best bang for buck to be , med textures 1024/768 res no soft shadows no AA 4xAF and every thing else max. though 800/600 with 2X AA gives me about 10 fps more.

awsome game thogh ,wait till the ending ITS AWSOME http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Tell me about it. Athlon 64 4000+, 7800GT, and 1.5 gigs of memory still can't enable FSAA when game is maxed out. Once I up it to 2x the game's frames cut in half.

Let me think a moment. Ok, developers are regularly putting out PC software that just simply murders even the current crop of high end machines.

I am always seeing a add for the next latest and greatest runs best on ATI 1800 XT PE CEO UPS STD MachVI or NVIDIA...The Way Its Meant To BE Played!!!

We often end up spending the equivalent of a decent HDTV or sound system/home entertainment center on a new GPU/Mobo/Matched sticks of DDR/water cooling/cpu I could fry steaks on so we can all tell the others "And I'm maxed on Ansio now! high 5 baby!!

Exactly 18 days three hours & 27 minutes after I bought it they are showing the adds for the new game that will make my current rig cry like a little girl until its blowing snot bubbles.

I can't quite put my finger on it but there seems to be a pattern here. Somebody help me out here. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Well, they're not getting my money...not until BoB comes out at least. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
