The trailer

I was searching for video tuts for Hammer when I came across this old E3 2k3 preview that had an early C-17 (which is more detailed in my opinion) and a quick glance at the old citadel! In the vid the citadel looks more like a futurelistic glass/chrome building. Also worth mentioning is that Alex is wearing more of a cat suit with a jacket which is kind of bland but still cool.
So what style do you like? The older version of C-17 and citadel of the current one? I donít want to make this a poll because I want comments.

cyberrad was before the matrix, but after bladerunner, but he was really a cyborg, so maybe thats where they got the idea, to make a cyberpunk

No it was writer Bruce Bethke who coined the phrase, by a subgenre of science fiction novel called "Neuromancer".

But thats off topic. who thinks they should have kept the old design?

It looks like an all-chrome build... but... a bit over the top if you ask me.
It's like a car with too much chrome. I like the way it was in the final release.
Regarding Alyx - well, it doesn't really matter much whether she wears this or that.

very interesting, im digging this one back up. You can really see how much work they put into HL2 since the time they made this video. The body animations still looked like hl1 for alyx quite a lot especially her neck.
Ya, rly.

I think that alyx should have kept the snazzy green jacket, not the catsuit though.

A bit more cyber punk would have been coo.
