Rise and shine, here are the ten first minutes of HL2 Xbox ! The long awaited port finally came in place before the 360's release, but even after a year or more, it still smell like a rush.
As you'll see in the video, the game looks fine, even if the textures have suffered a lot. There's also a bit of aliasing, but it's only cosmetic, small glitches. Because the real pain of Half-Life 2 Xbox, not mentioning the game itself, concerns its whole steamy engine, hardly giving a framerate that throw-out its lungs permanently. Well, maybe not "permanently", but long enough to be worried. It's really strange, because there's also a lot of HDR in the game, and I wonder why Vavle would put such an effect in the game without securing a good framerate. I mean, that's retarded. Anyway, if the slowings don't kill you enthusiasm, be sure the loadings will. I have cut them from the video, but you must know that there are FOUR loadings during the 10 first minutes of the game. This is... impressive.
Now, I'm done with the bad points, let's be sweet on Half-Life 2. So, except what I mentioned earlier, the game is just identical to its original version. The physics are exactly the same, and so are the maps. Finally, my point is: if you can pass these technological problems, you'll enjoy this game. You sure will. But, you must know that you will suffer. Your eyes will suffer. And so will your nerves. Ready to rumble ?
ps: following some requests, I forgot to tell you that the game supports 16/9.
@docLEXfisti: the megadrive shinobis are very different gameplay wise. I prefer the rolling thunder style instadeath coverbased design of arcade shinobi and shadow dancer. (3 Hours ago)
Loving the Friday the 13th game. So much fun :) (3 Hours ago)
abilities, graphics and there's actually an "oomph" to these weapons, unlike Paladins. (3 Hours ago)
I'm impressed by how many interesting characters there actually are here. If I compare this to Paladins I really only like two or three characters there. Not to mention the much better level design (3 Hours ago)
But this for me seems to be the game that I want to get better at and hopefully get better too. It's going well against medium cpu (4 Hours ago)
Now since I'm a newbie to the game I've been playing against medium cpu with other players, so chances are when I go against actual people I will get my ass beaten (4 Hours ago)
Been playing Overwatch all morning and I'm quite enjoying it. Really digging a lot of the characters too. Awesome designs. (4 Hours ago)
