I wonder if they're like the antlions where they keep respawning if they die...?

Yes the squadmates are terrible. They do absolutely nothing but get in the way, at least they are targets for enemies...muahahhaha

How come early reports talked about intellengent sqaudmates & how that if you asked them to go to some dangrous place they will refuse .
i didnt see any of that in the actual game

yup they are helpfull in the snipers level . just order them to move into the open (to recieve some cool headshots) & you're good to go

Where was the much vaunted AI in this game. The Imps were smarter. At least they would kinda try to hide in the shadows. These combine ****ers gleefully run into my haze of gunfire. They're like those crazy jesus loving folks.

Finally got to fully play it today and I am impressed. Best FPS out right now IMO. They did a above average job and I like how they challenged you to think. It runs, sounds and looks beautiful. Awesome!

They hide, duck around corners while reloading, come out and shoot a few rounds and hide again all the time when I'm playing.

I just finished the game here is my honest opinion:-

Graphics: - looks like the Unreal 2 engine with a couple of shader effects plugged in, VERY DISAPOINTED.

Sound: St St St Stutting, this bug should never have got past Q&A.

Gameplay: - Awesome for most part - well done Valve!!.

Overall I found HL2 to be a long-winded let down. It has suffered from being delayed for that year - if it had beaten FarCry and Doom3 to market and been released on time then I can see how it could have been called "the best shooter of all time"

As it stands its little brother (HL1) was a significantly better game in almost every way.

ttfn

I hope F.E.A.R is less of a disapointment.

I'd have to agree with you Superfly.
Gameplay is excellent, but the graphics to me look dated.
The character models look 2D and if you have a look, Alyx is the only character with any expressions, all the other faces look like photos stuck to their heads.

The shadows are just pre-rendered and the lighting is sub standard.
But, having said that, I am enjoying the game and it's been a blast so far.

Well I have already beaten the game the first weekend it came out. On my review I have to give it a 10/10. It now ranks above Doom3 one my list. The graphics are beautiful as well as the sound and environment.

I am right now making some nice wallpaper for my pc does anyone know what the cheat is so I dont have the gun and hub in my picture.
