Video Games: F.E.A.R., Superman

All of the recent buzz for Xbox 360 fans has surrounded Gears of War, the jaw-dropper that gave the console its first solid must-have. A little lost in all the hubbub was F.E.A.R., a title that will reward Gears devotees, any fan of the first-person shooter and everyone who appreciates a good scare.

F.E.AR. is one of the most frightening and thrilling shooters on the market. Hands down. Its developers have found ingenious ways to make shadows appear spooky, enemies appear sinister and the game to become a heart-pounding thrill ride. If you don't believe me, pop in the game, turn off the lights, turn up the sound, and see how long before your living daylights are sitting beside you on the couch.

The game is an adaptation, or port, of the successful version of the game previously released for the PC. In F.E.A.R., you play a member of an elite military group, First Encounter Assault Recon team, who is inserted to hunt down a military commander of a secret army of cloned soldiers gone haywire. Truth be told, all that doesn't matter, since you won't have much time to dwell on plot.

For the most part, you'll be engaged in one of numerous fast and furious gunfights, some of the most engrossing combat to be found in a first-person console shooter. You will need every weapon from the game's arsenal -- pistol, shotgun, assault rifle and rocket launcher -- to dispatch your enemies. And you'll frequently have to employ F.E.A.R.'s version of bullet-time.
