A new patch for recently released for the PC version of F.E.A.R. 3 is now available on Steam. Most of what the patch does is improve the graphics quality, including a frame rate boost, and voice communication.

The new patch does the following tweaks and fixes:

* Stuttering and jerky movement at frame rates above 30 fps is fixed!
* Steam voice communication "push-to-talk" option is now fully supported.
* 4-player voice chat should no longer have audio drop-outs.
* A rare bug that would cause enemies to stop spawning in Contractions is now fixed.
* The game will now prefer Steam cloud storage over local file system storage.
* Network connection reliability has been improved.
* Support for wider than 16x9 aspect ratio displays has been added to support users with non-standard display devices and spanned multi-monitor displays like AMD Eyefinity and NVIDIA Surround.
* An "options.cfg" file has been added to the F.E.A.R. 3 install directory for advanced user customization and troubleshooting. Included in this file are options to extend the FOV on narrow aspect ratio displays, reduce or remove motion blur, and to override driver-default settings for full-screen refresh rate, overscan, letterboxing, etc.

Anyone here playing F.E.A.R 3?
Is it good on the PC - feels like a solid shooter or does it still have to much on the console age gameplay and multiplatform problems as many other games have?
I.E is it a fun shooter or not? ;)

It's okay, but it's not scary.

The multiplayer modes, however, are excellent.

After having read SI's review, I wouldn't sing the praises of MP just yet, but I'd buy the game when inevitably it goes on sale, if only to complete the story.
