when i called the first time, it actually went pretty smooth. i didn't finish the conversation with the rep the first time because i didn't have all the information in front of me, but it went smooth. the second time however, i got a little bit of a run around and just decided to screw it and sold it to another person that wanted a bricked 360.

Default i just got off the phone with them...

it went quite well. I had to wait for 20 minutes but it was worth it. Their rep. said that I will receive a box to put the console in. The shippping and repair will be free of charge. The whole process will take around 1-2 weeks.

IMO FEAR is a fun game for a few hours. The action and the environment can get a bit repetive, but it does have some good action especially if playing at high difficulty.
The gameplay and control is very solid. There is a slow-mo effect (like in max payne) which is pretty nice. Graphically this game is just barely next
Gen. The bullet and explosive effects are nice but the environment looks like doo doo. Maybe it needs more textures and detail because I felt like I was playing doom. hehe.

that's my take.

i had the ring of fire late last year. their customer service was good, they sent me a box for the 360 unit. sent it and after almost 2 weeks i got it back, still not working. i took off the hard drive, sold it to my friend. went to Gamestop traded the unit for cash. i thought of getting the PS3 at that time however, i changed my mind got me a new 360 unit (core package) and it's been running with no problems.

I think FEAR is a good game, plus a new maps are on the XBL marketplace, I got the three ROL as well, they just received my console today, and I got an email saying 4-6 weeks before I get my console back
