The latest edition of Official Xbox Magazine, October 2006, apparently has a demo disc containing a playable version of F.E.A.R.
Is it a long demo?
demo as the one release back on the PC. It has a few hiccups but over all the game runs very well. This should be all ironed out by the time the game is released.

Well I guess it isn't a kingboy actually but a Freaking Fony FANBOY! hahaa. you want it baby?
Same, you played it already? Is it like PC with highest settings on?
I'm split as whether playing demos is a good/bad thing. I think it's both.
GOOD POINTS- You get to experience the game before purchase (well, with the majority of demos anyway). This can help you decide whether you like it or not.
BAD POINTS- Early builds are what they say on the tin- early. These builds can be buggy and give the wrong impression to what could be a great final retail version game.
Well yeah, but that pushes company's to release good checked demo's.
And every user is aware early build demo's can always have some problems I guess that finals don't have. But still, it saved me from buying some games and on the other hand, made me purchasing others with urge!
One should always check the final reviews after playing a demo, before buying. Always
I played the PC demo and the recent OXM 360 demo. The 360 version looks like the PC with all settings maxed. Then again to really make a comparison you need an HDTV (Like I do). The lighting looks more like bloom instead of HDR. But then again this is an early build so textures and lighting can change with the final build. The aiming is a little off, not too bad but off some what. Anyways for being an early build it looks good and plays rather smoothly.
I hope that this time monoloth or whatever uses all the 360's graphical power.
You know it looks better than i thought, better than i expect from the 360, it looks pretty much the same as the pc with all the features turned on and up all the way (although the anisotropic filtering can be made to look better on the pc), but i noticed that it looks like there are less particles, and the physics look a tab bit weaker. But other than that, its pretty spot on, and the framerate is decent considering the the game (this game can frame down even some of the mightiest pc's when you try to run it at certain rez'es). All in all, not bad! not bad at all, better than i thought
