After playing it some this afternoon I can conclude that it is better then HALO 2.

Half-Life 2 = $200 Steak.

Halo 2 = Ground Beef.

Half-Life 2 makes Halo 2 feel old, like a game released 5 years ago. It's absolutely incredible. A small example of the awesome things this game lets you do: I picked up a glass bottle and threw it at the head of a Combine, it shattered into several little pieces. I then went over and picked up the individual pieces and starting throwing them around. They physics engine is...amazing.

Boy, Half-Life 2 looks AMAZING. I mean, surface of the sun amazing. I'm going to wait for the Xbox version, while mooching off of my friend who preordered the game a few months ago. He said it was the best game on the pc. No doubt the Single Player aspect of the game will own Halo 2's, but it can't touch Halo 2's multiplayer(I'm talking about Counter-Strike).

I can't wait to play it...I get my free (and legit..box and everything) copy tomorrow :p

I'll be playing a ton of CS in the next few weeks I bet...it's gotta look fucking incredible at 1600x1200 with maxed AA and AF.

Sucking the Gamestop's manager's dick again? :p Just kidding.

I wish I could play this game. Think it'll run on a $800 gateway laptop?

It's not rather it can run on the $800 gateway laptop
The question is:
CAN YOU HANDLE THE SLOWDOWN, SUCKAGE GRAPHIC-QUALITY AND OVERALL CRAPPINESS ON A SLOW COMPUTER?!

You know you guys are pathetic when your arguing which is better Half-Life 2 or Halo 2. All I have to say is grow up, in the end there both just video games so why bitch about them. Where's the love you all, it's all about the puff puff give and groupy love!

I run this game at 1600 by 1200 max everything

3500+ OC to 2.6
1GB Corsair XMS ddr 4000
Radeon x800XT PE

It is clearly the best game I have ever played. I even took the day off work.

The gravity gun is better than sex.

Right now I'm in Ravenholm and can't wait to get out. That place reminds me a lot of Resident Evil 2.

ryan
17-11-2004, 04:18 AM
I'm not even sure if I'll play HL2 single player. I'll be spending most if not all of my time playing CS and DoD once it's out.

Totally fucking awesome. CS:S owns for multiplayer, and im here to tell ya, it shits all over halo 2. The single player is like heaven, 999 times better than halo 2. frodo, halo 2 is 'shit' compared to hl2 and cs:s, so bad luck there mate. Enough talk, im going back to play it.

I've never been quite so impressed with a game since... well, ever.
The graphics, the action, the physics, the storyline... and all the little things make this an absolute joy to play. The only time I've played a game which has made me smile as much as this, is Sam and Max or Monkey Island, and thats for different reasons.

Ryan, play half life 2 single player. It is so very good. Superior in almost everyway to farcry, and doom 3.

As cliff just reminded me, Half Life 2 somehow makes me think of Far Cry which was also a favorite Single Player game of mine, not sure if it is the story line or the massive outdoor environments that catch me, I’m just glad I can play these games with full eye candy.

Today I've played 3 hours and I must say, Half-Life 2 is one of the best first-person-shooters all time. Great atmosphere, sensational graphic and brilliant gameplay. Only the installation with Steam was really really shit.

Narg
17-11-2004, 11:50 PM
Yeah, the installation was a pain in the ass. Im starting to dislike CS:S, it dosnt have the same feel as cs. :/

ryan
18-11-2004, 03:36 AM
installation was a breeze and pretty quick.
it's easily the best looking game i've ever played or seen. beats doom 3 no problem.
I've never been a huge CS fan, but it will keep me occupied until DoD:S comes out...that will fucking own.
i love avalanche.

I'm going to have to stick with Halo 2 :'(

My computer barely runs the first Half Life game, and I am too poor to buy a new one right now.

Great game, although I need to finish it (I already have Metroid Prime 2 and Baten Kaitos waiting, and Metal Gear Solid 3 comes out today!). I'm in Nove Projekt, trying to get the hell out of there. Picking up torrents is a blast.

Narg

Im also in Nova Projekt, Lovin the bug bait :P.

when does DoD:S come out?
CS:S is nice and all, but it's no DoD.
also, the huge ass headshot area in CS is getting annoying as piss real fast.

Spire

Just beat the game. Holy shit, fucking awesome. Can't wait for Half-Life 3 or the HL2 expansions.

Thats partially as its grounded in real life....
You know if you get a bullet in the face, then you're kinda fucked.
And CS players always aim for the face. Put two and two together...

I see just as many headshots as I do regular kills.
Aiming for the head or not, 75% of all CS:S players do not have nearly that good of aim and the weapons have far too much recoil to be that accurate when spraying bullets.

Well, one of my friends at school is a Half-Life nut. He put green logo decals on his car, and scored a 32 on the ACT this week, so his dad is getting him whatever he wants. He chose a new graphics card, and Half-Life 2. What a man.
