Well your posting low quality pics taken on a digital camera to compare. Halo 1 on xbox was one of the best looking games for its time.

Sorry but you must be either blind or have no objective view .

Halo 2 is outdated (Is basicly same Halo engine), just look at textures bland , characters low poly ,low pixel shader effects ... its fun game but thats all about it , physic engine none existant.

Halflife 2 , higher res textures ,high poly characters with animated faces , lotsa shader effects HDR effects and lots more , and superb Physics engine.

Its not even contest one is hightech PC game and other remake of original console game Offcourse both are fun to play we not talking about that.And looking at poll big majority agree.

The majority don't own XBOXes. The 'majority' (especially with you as its leader) are ignorant.

wow a leader im honored

And im sure as a XBOX owner you are very none ignorant and compare low spec console to PC

Simple fact graphics can't be better on low spec console game compared to possibilitys of latest PC GPU's (technicaly not possible unleas offcourse you code badly for particular PC game and well for console game), they can be made to be more fun , and look good.
But we compare Halo 2 to HalfLife 2 and one owns another at those points. Noone is saying Halo 2 is bad , its just not as good as HalfLife 2

Your grounds for comparison are PATHETIC. You are a consumerist slave.

I know a great many COMMODORE 64 games that trounce anything that has ever been released on the PC. Games are about gameplay, first and foremost. This is the case for many people as the rise in emulation has well shown. Many people are retreating back to halcyon days when games weren't the lugrubrious commercial and mass media enterprises they've now become.

Personally I OWN BOTH Halo 2 (pre ordered) and Half Life 2 (just purchased). I will enjoy both on thier OWN MERITS.

DVS. Shut up.

You ARE saying that HALO 2 is "not as good" as HL 2.

Just how do you define that? Infact. Heh. HOW THE HELL DO YOU EVEN KNOW? You haven't played either.

Jesus.

Shut. Up.

Talking Re: Halo 2 vs. Half-Life 2

mezkal its now obvious you have some serious issues maybe you should not drink those green / orange pills .

Offcourse we can't compare gameplay alone so we compare rest of things, you know gameplay is made of alot of factors and what facts we do have about these unreleased games , HalfLife 2 is > then Halo 2 , at those points who make a computer game as whole experience.
Is that clear enough for you i don't think i can explain better then that for a child.

Thanks for the personal attack.

Cheers.

There's no need for you to explain to me what I was already saying to YOU 4 or 5 post back. Remember? The COMMODORE 64 games comment?

Gameplay is king. Graphics gets bums on seats for sure but gameplay keeps em there.

Now let me preface what I'm about to say by CLARIFYING myself for you:-

As I said I will OWN BOTH GAMES. Got that? I have no sides here. I'm a fan of both games therefore I can't be called a 'fanboy' here. Certainly not in any way that will allow you to shape this conversation into a fanboy arguement.

My issue with your comments DVS, is that you seem to say that the fact HL2's DX9 renderer running on a modern PC technically beats HALO2's DX8.1 (with enhanced shaders) renderer running on three year old tech means to IMPLY that HL2 is a better game than HALO 2.

Note that I said RENDERER. For that is all you have brought forth as so called 'evidence' that HALO 2 will live in Half Life 2's shadow. You have no evidence nor means to test any of the other aspects (GAMEPLAY, LOAD TIMES, MULTIPLAYER ENJOYMENT) of either game.

That is why I told to shut up. You seem to think that your rabid Half Life 2 fanboyism equates to discussion. It doesn't.

Maybe you should reread post more carefully before flameing someone . And as to your gameplay comment as i said there is alot of factors who make FUN game play , yes there is alot of thing we don't know and i perfectly said what parts of those games we do know and that is graphics what i was compareing and physic engine as reference we have alot of *Pics,Movies, Technical info how games are made , comment from developers, ect* I even said Halo is fun game, im pretty sure they both will be fun , but once you get past fun part there will be other things to make one better then other

Lamens terms Halo 2 is same Halo with different graphics ( and we all know what Halo had to offer lotsa FPS shooting fun and cars)
HalfLife 2 will have same FPS shooting part + Physics engine part ( extra fun ) and graphics that what i was mainly talking im writeing english em i not ?.

Edit: now offcourse if you find Halo 2 graphics better then HalfLife 2 ( personaly in your opinion ) thats should be perfectly fine by anyone, note my first comment about this

Halo 2 is outdated compared to Half Life 2 In Graphic departament and Physics engine, in my opinion anyways.
