Definitely worth sticking through the bad outdoor FPS though, its a tremendous game.
Thats a load of bull, The developers went under before the game even released... Valve had nothing to do with it.
The game was rushed, It was ready to ship prior to even HL2 being completed... The only reason it didn't ship before was an agreement that Valve had to make HL2 the first Source Engine title on the market.
With all the bugs though, I still enjoyed the game. Its one of the better games out there...
