Try imagining mixing a cartoon Kentucky Derby with your mom's old Compaq that could only run crude card games. Now, make it TOTALLY worth the trouble.

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

So, I got F.E.A.R. Platinum Edition the other day (alongside Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, hey it was a bargain), and I thought it would be a pretty damn scary game.

Nope. Either I have more balls than most gamers out there, or F.E.A.R. is just a convenient acronym.

In my honest opinion, the AI was more scary than the set pieces. With their sheer tenacity, intelligence and sheer 'pop out from behind a corner you were behind and kill you' attitude, they tend to cause a lot of swearing.

Mind you, I got my own back once. One enemy ran to a corner to shoot from, except since he last spotted me, I had flanked him and slide-kicked his unaware ass into the wall.

F.E.A.R. may stand for First Encounter Assault Recon, but it could just as easily stand for Frustrating Enemies Always Raging.

Yeah, that sounded a lot better in my head...
