Beligian PC Gameplay: First Review of Half-Life 2.

Postby King_Kong on Fri Oct 01, 2004 4:22 pm

Just found this over at the Futuremark forums:

Just got the new pc gameplay (belgian game magazine) with a full review of half life 2. The game scores 90%:
gameplay: 55/60
graphics: 18/20
sound: 17/20


pro:
-brilliant use of physics
-enormous variation between different levels
-a lot of original gameplay elements
-very good ingame animations

contra:
-no multiplayer death match
-the AI squadmates are sometimes hindering you

I haven't read the review yet (7 pages!), so that's all i can tell for now...

BTW: release is in october according to pcgameplay

I think the game should go gold next week some time if this is true.

It's also reviewed in PC Gamer, they gave it 96% 8)

For anyone who doesn't know, CS:Source is confirmed as being the multiplayer element of HL2....so you don't have to buy it separately!

:D :D


Edit: some very nice screenshots here!

That means it's being pressed to disc basically.

IIRC gold is the final stage of code before burning retail copies.

Something like that anyways :D :D
