after rading raising the bar it seems alot of work was on the engine itself. the actual game only took 2-21/2 years, but ALOT was cut. after playing for the 2nd time though i think it desirves more credit than i gave it.
im a marine! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooo

I think there was enough. I always figure Half-Life to be the top modding game, not the top single player game. I loved the single player, but I think most of us can agree that we have yet to see the extent of the engine. We need to be patient for the upcoming mods biggrin.gif

I know they spent a lot of time on the engine... but c'mon... There are so many things from hl1 that was expected to be seen in HL2 which wasn't there... and a lot of things they promised us at the E3's that weasn't there....
It was ok, but I think they could've made more...

I expected a personal message from Gabe as I started the game.

But then, my dream was shattered by the horribly deformed guy with a valve in his eye.

Tragic.
