    I'll just say the graphics where good and all, but the game is just crap. I hate to not finish it, but is it the same all the way through or does it change at all.

    The "story"(if thats what you want to call it) Doesnt get that much more in detial, and its the same thing over and over again...but I would go for it, just so you can say you made it all the way in the most boring pretty game ever

    It does go into hell apparently (not got that far myself) so you may want to play it more for the graphics. Nowhere as good as the original though, even if you compare it in simple adrenaline shooter terms and forget all the graphics etc, and strip out the nostalgia factor of the original.

    All the hype got me in the end, just wasn't what I expected the game to be. I promised myself I'll finish it one day though, since you might as well enjoy something that cost so much :)

    I like the idea of the storyline going to hell though, sounds interesting. Might have to play more just to see that.

    better graphics does not make the game any better unfortunately... but once you get to "hell" in the game, it is actually decent... makes up about 1% of the crappiness of the game...

    eh... i tried it... didn't even buy it to try it.... and glad i didn't buy it to try it. got bored in the first 10 minutes of playing it. running from one side of the station to the other and then back again... just not for me. I'm more into a game with a more straight through storyline/gameplay style. as Sraycoz said. play HL2. it's at least worth it, and has what is probably a MUCH better multiplayer factor as well.

    cos I am true geek, I was looking at the engine. So good. Games have stupid expectations these days, but the way everything was integrated into each other was friggin fantastic.
