F.E.A.R. 2 demo due next week

The upcoming F.E.A.R. 2 title, expected for release in early February, has been anticipated by many who found themselves captivated by the original. Members of the PlayStation Network who subscribed to Qore found themselves gifted with a demo of the game, whereas the rest of the world had to sit out. Not any longer, it seems, as a multi-platform demo is expected to be released by the end of next week, for all Xbox 360, PS3 and PC owners.

Last month, Monolith released engine demos of the game to help pull in interest. It certainly looked good then. The original F.E.A.R was received very well, largely due to the atmosphere and engine elements. We'll see soon if Monolith can do it again.

The first F.E.A.R played as well in my head as it did in my computer. That game truly creeped me out, but was so well paced that it was hard to put down. One of my first thoughts about it were, "Finally, someone game my floating camera arms, legs, and a torso!" It added so much realism, especially with the attacks. And the AI - still some of the best I've seen in a game. But I do recall my need to finally upgrade to get that creamy smooth frame rate that I love. I wonder if the system requirements will be closer to a 2 yr old gaming system or bleeding edge? Can't wait for that demo!
