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.
yeah agreed. Nothing like getting that Soldier stunt driver skin instead of an event specific one D: (48 minutes ago)
And a bunch of dances and voice lines. (49 minutes ago)
I got one drop in the last event, one non-event legendary, and I unlocked another two with credits. (49 minutes ago)
The last event had a ton of skins but it seemed extra bad because they were all legendary. That didn't help. (50 minutes ago)
Another annoyance is getting that rare legendary during an event and having it not be an event skin. (50 minutes ago)
it was really at it's worse during the last event too. They released more random collectibles so the drop rate was even more obscure. The dupe money has always been really shit though (51 minutes ago)
Yea.. and I think dupes made it a lot more annoying too. (51 minutes ago)
