Fans of First Person Shooters were wondering how on earth any game developer could follow last summer which saw the release of Doom 3 and Half-Life 2. If E3 and the praise received by First Encounter Assault Recon (F.E.A.R.) were not enough to convince you that there is a future for FPS, the demo seems to have clinched the deal for most fans of the genre.

Read on to find out more about the game which promises to bring FPS game production standards up to Hollywood level and promises to do so in style.
