Yeah, that's one thing that bugged me from the screenshot...just looking at them, you can tell the faces are painted on. In HL2, I really believed that these were people. Their eyes moved, they smiled, the bobbed and acted human...UT2k4 just can't convey that.

Impressive, but saying they look better than the Source Engine is an overstatement.

The HL2 in-game rendering has something going for it while in motion. I can't quite describe it. Anyway, just goes to show that you can't mimic great work with different work. Should be noted that the UT2004 engine feels better during online deathmatch for fast paced.

What's the deal with engines competing against each other or using content from other games to prove something or another? Whoever is doing it stop doing it

The screens look impressive, but after a round of instagib ctf, the characters dont look nearly as nice in motion, but damn, im such a hl2 nut that this just gave ut2k4 a much needed breath of fresh air for me. Amazing. Simply awesome. I give credit to those who did this

They probably adapted UT2004 default skeleton to HL2 characters. That's why they look inferior. Other than this the Source engine does not have enough "oomph" to be defined "superior" to the Unreal engine.

I wonder why people are so hyped about the source engine. A few shadered surfaces every once in a while don't make a superior engine. And honestly, I'm quite tired of games where when -upon walking close to a wall- all you'll see is a blurred pixellated surface. Unreal, back 1998, showed how better look surfaces with micro-texturing on them. It's a lame, fast and simple technique. Yet only a handful of games employ it.

lets see out of the box parallax, deformation, radiosty sphere bubbles, facial animation systems, lip syncing directly from mp3's....ability to make custom shaders, material examples with shaders that are able to be applied to any generic texture thus giving it physical and visual complexity, along with tieing it directly into the phsyics system allowing for less scripting and more action plus instant audible changes. Metal texture click its metal acts like metal physically and sounds like metal. The ability to render to image thus being able to create your own movies, like you would in max maya and so forth. Meshsmoothing....the list goes on and on actually.

HDr in a soon to be released patch...etc etc

Not to mention backwards compatible mods/maps
