I'll make this short, and no screenshots or beta links. After playing the Half-Life2 Beta, which includes majority of the levels of the game, I have come to find Half-Life2 is not all it's cracked up to be. The Level Design is superior to any other game, but after hearing of how great the AI is, and how it will be better from any other..NOT. First off, the game is so unfinished it's not even funny. I'm beginning to believe the guy who leaked it. Valve did a horrible job holding up to their original release date, and are using the hacker to their advantage, with much more time to finish the game until the estimated release date in 2004. Textures are choppy, much is still missing in detail from the game. I will give credit where credit is due. The vehicle was an interesting aspect to the game, but was sort of bothersome at times not being able to take certain paths in it, leading to the next area. The levels are well done for the most part, except some of the sketchy underground dark levels where you guess at which way is out while having little mechanical flying robots bug the living **** out of you. And then the enemies.. You will shoot at an enemy from a certain distance, and nothing will happen. You get closer, nothing happens. It's almost you have to hit the bad guy at the right angle to kill him, and shoot him about 10 times before he dies. The AI is purely scripted, enemies continually spawn as you try and defend your allies. I look to the top of the screen and see "4 days until September 30" when the game was suppose to release..lmao. This game has potential, but with nearly all of the game leaked, and the hacker "stealing" source code, I don't see how they can get away with releasing the game. The game looks like the Half-Life1 Engine, and the physics are alright, but I expected more detail. Again, this is a leaked beta, so we don't know what to expect when the game plans to release.. And lots of the files are missing, but still the game is definately unfinished. Too much hype, an attempt to make a great game. It's pretty much Half-Life1 with Max Payne2 Physics... I would let valve some slack..but the hacker caught them red handed. All I can say is when the game is released, hopefully it will be complete, but as of now that amazing AI is yet to be seen. Thanks for reading.
