Default HL2 review, 96% in PCG UK

No scans and no new info (yet) though, just the score.
halflife2.net

Hopefully more to follow later today.

They gave Doom 3 a 94% and you guys all hated it.

Problem with doom was that on the surface its great, and it's not a horrible game. But once you sink your teeth into it, play it through once... it's done. Yet another dust magnet.

Oh I'm not here to argue Doom 3's merits. PC Gamer is notorious for writing gushing reviews, especially for big titles like this. Then again, I usually agree with them, but in my experience with most people there's quite a lot of room for debate (Warcraft III for example, which I love, but almost all my friends hate - mostly because they suck at it).

The question in my mind isn't if it'll be worth the $50 - it will almost certainly be worth that. Doom 3 was worth the money, IMO, and the mods that will eventually happen for it will also be worth it. The question is whether or not Half-Life 2 is going to be the second coming of Half-Life, which is arguably one of the games that I have spent the most time playing over the years.

HL2 will be boring too once you beat it.

They gave Quake 3 a 75% when it came out. I think their opinions are still valid.

Eh, maybe. Did you think Half-Life was boring once you beat it?

I think for big games like D3/HL the base score is 9 and the real score is the ones digit (a user on B3D said that...and I liked it)
