The console adaptation of the famous Half-Life 2 showcases with four new screenshots. Even if we're miles away from the original PC version, the result of this port is really satisfying and confirms the good impressions of the gameplay videos.

Not bad for a port.
Some areas look and play better than others, but they tried their best.
I hope the game has stable gameplay, with no slowdown whatsoever.

I was so hyped about this game coming out, now I just don't feel the urge to buy it or maybe even rent it. Wonder why...Maybe because of the slight decrease in graphics and many push backs. The xbox version idea seemed good at 1st, but now I think it may do harm to the game. They're taking too long...

Well it can't possibly feel more dated than it already feels anyway. Most of the loading times and cheap spawns of the PC game smell of 1998.
