So far my biggest problem is with the enemies. I'm sure things will get more interesting later on but for the first hour or so you fight the exact same enemy about 100 times. HL2 wasn't known for it's enemy variety but it was way more than this. The worst part is how they just pelt you from all directions from very far distances. Very annoying. Like I said I'm going to stay with it but so far I'm definately wishing I waited for some reviews.
The animation of the character is the same with any source engine game, I don't know how you can hold that against the game.
