Re: hl2 is looking good
I'm eager to see how the AI performs in HL2... especially concerning friendly characters like Alyx, Dog, and other main characters.
I agree that it is difficult to compare HL2, Doom 3, and far cry in terms of presentation.
The atmosphere presented in Half Life 2 feels like the cold war... Reminds me of old photos of East Berlin... so far out of the 3 reviews they're saying that the city is the most fully realized gaming environment ever...I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
If there's a graphics debate to be had I think it would be "how does hl2 look compared to d3, far cry on an average mid-range system while maintaining acceptable playability?" since most gamers don't have the uber powerful machines to run everything at full detail...
