F.E.A.R. (First Encounter Assault and Recon) is a first-person close-quarters combat game for the PC. The story begins when a paramilitary force infiltrates a multi-billion dollar aerospace compound, and the government responds by sending in Special Forces. The group loses contact with the government when an eerie signal interrupts radio communications–and when that interference subsides moments later, the team has been destroyed. That’s where you come in. As part of a classified strike team created to deal with threats no one else can handle, your mission is simple: eliminate the intruders at any cost, determine the origin of the signal, and contain the potential crisis before it gets out of control. High and Max settings represent the built in game control settings. Soft Shadows were not used.
In FEAR we see just how well the Asus EN8600 GTS stacks up to other cards that are near its price and that have held its price in the past. The X1950 Pro, 7900 GT, and 7900 GS are quite a bit faster in these tests but don’t offer DirectX 10 capability.
