I Got Half-Life²

Wed Nov 17, 2004 2:20 am

and it rocks!

Anyone else already got his copy? If you haven't got it yet and like PC Games, go and buy it! The graphics are amazing, the story seems to be great, even the German translation has been done very well.

I loved Half Life 1 and the add ons, but I`m not sure my computer will run 2. I'm off to the store soon to check out the minimum requirements.

I got it too - it's awesome but Halo 2 on XBOX is still better IMHO. Although the graphics on Half Life 2 are fantastic
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

I can't wait to get this game, here's an interesting article on it. http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/washpost/20041116/tc_washpost/a52849_2004nov15

Half Life was the basis for most first person shooter style games today, as it incorporated a interactive setting, great music and sound effects, and puzzle style thinking. Games like Halo 2 and Metroid Prime 2 can only be seen to have the same type of gameplay that the original Half Life started. That is the reason that it remains one of the best selling PC games around. If you go back and play the original Half Life, you may just agree with me that I think its one of the best first person shooter on the market today. Of course, I haven't tried Half Life 2 yet so I don't know  Laugh out loud.

Did it come out today in Germany? I was not aware it was out yet here in the United States/Canada.

Love Half-Life. Downloaded many Single-Player map variations; and played the Single-Player many times over. I think the requirements of the new games outweigh this old machine though. How low can you put the graphics in HL 2?

No that would be Goldeneye on N64, before Goldeneye there were a lot of poor FPS games, that changed after it's release.  Smile

In Arsene we trust!!

HL@ just came out today in Canada, $60 at Future Shop. Minimum specs are 1.2 ghz processor, 4.5 gb space on hard drive, 256 ram, and a directx7 compatible video card. I don't think my computer will run it.  Sad Recommended processor is 2.4 ghz!
