Half-Life 2's Multiplayer Mode Is...
 
Counter-Strike: Source :wtf: :fu: :mad:

If that is true, then Half Life 2 will have no multiplayer like the original game multiplayer I loved and played often, the CTF and deathmatch games in Half Life and Opposing Force are much more fun than in Counter-Strike being very boring game.

When I will hear more official details about the multiplayer mode in Half Life 2 based on ign.com are confirmed, then I will consider cancelling my pre-order. The reason I pre-order it because I wanted to have the game CD-Key to play multiplayer games on Half Life 2 like the original Half Life multiplayer, not Counter-Strike: Source. :rolleyes:

If Half Life 2 multiplayer killed, who do we blame? Gabe, the half truth teller or game sponser ATI or both? :|

so you pre-ordered it just to be able to play online? arent you interested in the single player experience? im sure most people who pre-ordered are excited on just playing the game and not so they could start fragging people online.

Of course I will play single player but it will last around 60 hours, with original multiplayer, it lhave 1 hour fun every day on deathmatch or CTF with so many different maps to explore. No Half Life 2 multiplayer is a no go! I think Half Life 2 will not sell as good as original Half Life, the real reason Half Life is still the most successful and still selling today because it have multiplayer and mods that have much fun maps to fragging.

I dont believe it that they will not include it, at least soon after release, but I guess we'll wait and see...

Btw, read the intervew with Chuck Osborn from PC Gamer on www.halflife2.net

Here's some lines from the interview:

"Icarus: Was Half-Life 2 what you expected?
Chuck Osborn: More

Icarus: Was it worth the wait?
Chuck Osborn: Absolutely

Icarus: How long is the review?
Chuck Osborn: Nine pages, plus we have a four page story telling you what you need to know about running Half-Life 2 on your system.


Icarus: Anything you want to say the users before I go?
Chuck Osborn: I'm just glad I don't have to keep my playing Half-Life 2 a secret anymore! It was killing me. Trust me...you won't be disappointed."

Its gonna be great :D

Umm, the original multiplayer in Half-life sucked. Just basic deathmatch with Half-life weapons, it was no better than Quake in it's execution (though some of the levels were pretty fun). CTF, Assault, and all those other cool game modes were only added in TFC and later an addon in Opposing Force allowed you to play CTF in that. Otherwise there wasn't much interesting about the multiplayer, but 90% of your time is going to be spent playing mods anyway. The only thing that might slightly worry me is that there probably won't be as many Deathmatch modifiers since deathmatch isn't actually built into the game, but making a mod for just straight up HL2 deathmatch is probably going to be extremely easy (make map, add spawn locations for weapons, and voila). In fact, it wouldn't suprise me if Valve themselves come out with a "Deathmatch Classic" mod for HL2 that will add basic deathmatch to the game (much like the Quake modifier they released for the original Half-life).

And BTW, why are you complaining about HL2 "not having multiplayer"? Last I checked, Counter-Strike IS multiplayer.

I like Source :) One of my favorite multiplayer games... its the community that sucks. Hopefully all the 9 year olds can't play on their geforce2mx's

Exactly. I actually enjoy playing CS but only on source. The community is has entirely too many immature, annoying, kiddes though that keeps me a way a majority of the time.

Well... this is the worst thing ever. I thought they were saying there was going to be some revolutionary multiplayer... now we get a crappy counter strike with the same crappy graphics and a few new things.

I was hoping for some good multiplayer... but now I know it will suck.

I comptely understand that you (and AthlonXP1800) feel this way. However about 65,000 people disagree with you at every moment as if you ever the gamespy stats or other you will see that after 3 years CS is STILL the number one game played on-line.

Look at the facts, while HL was a great game, its Counter Strike that has keep the game alive for the last few years.

Besides I think that valve will add on standard DM a bit later...well according to rumor that is...
