Looks heavy on HDR but doesn't looks too taxing on the graphics front which is always a good thing.. The F.E.A.R series is at a very catching stage (i really feel so).. The last thing one would want is jaw dropping visuals with a boring story line (lets leave that part to crysis series)..
[citation][nom]pietpompies84[/nom]sort out the way we view pictures toms. this system is really retarded. One click full Res picture in new tab!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hope it will be like the first FEAR[/citation]
The second click needed to view the full picture only works half the time. The other half, it just links to the page with the small image I'm already on. Get rid of these stupid slide-show storage things.
I am very excited for this game! I just hope that they will SLIGHTLY improve the graphics in this one. If a 5870 can get 60fps on max settings @ 2560x1600, that would be PERFECT! (Considering that a 5870 can dummie pretty much any game except for crysis.)
FEAR 1 was an awesome game, but they won't be able to replicate it, specially if there's not an upgrade in visuals. Fear 2 never looked like much of an upgrade over fear 1. Maybe some overused HDR and softer shadows, but it was all very mediocre. Now, it looks like they haven't made one upgrade to the graphics system. It's shaping up to look like another game I won't bother buying.
Sorry to say, but FEAR was a one-shot time deal - nothing can recreate the essence of the first FEAR (and to some degree the expansion packs). But FEAR 2 was a joke - a massive let down of nothing but a mediocre FSP which only sold becuase of its title - FEAR 3 won't be so lucky... but I'll torrent it and see if it's worth playing.
First time I saw FEAR my jaw dropped. The graphics were great and it was creepy. FEAR 2 was an aging, creaky monstrosity (not in a good way) and this sequel looks to be the same. Where's the innovation?
