Well we simply disagree there, I think the art design and overall graphical expression surpasses just about anything else out there.
On a sidenote, how the hell can you not like the HDR implementation in HL2?
Seriously would you prefer Far Cry's totally exaggerated (mis)use of HDR? I think it's perfect in it's current integration in Source. I also like the fact they we will see better graphics in Episode 2 and even better in Episode 3 because they continuously develope the Source technology until the end of Episode 3, where we allegedly will see a whole new engine.
To all those people who says it too short (especially you having completed it within 3 hours):
1. Quit power storming through the game
2. Don't forget that it's is called an episode; that's what you get and that's what you pay for. Look at the pricetag for christ sake, don't tell me you expected a lot more than 4-5 hours?
3. This one is real simple: play on hard difficulty. I am, and I'm having real fun
