wow... just got done playing it and the graphics are jaw-dropping. i would even say better, or equivalant to any xbox 360 game i have seen.
Thanks for the reminder!!!!!!
Time to start the DL!!!!!!!
Damit, my 9800pro 256mb can't handle it. Thx for the info, I'm going to try and see if it works anyway.
And by looking at those screens, I can understand why the req is so high.

I wasnt overly impressed really. Not much new there other than some lighting, I dont know why it was necessary for us to wait months and months on a 5 minute level full of glitches and bugs.
The graphics were good, but still dated it's HL2 with HDR (duh ) no where near F.E.A.R or the 360 game Condemned which uses the Jupiter Engine (same as fear)Originally Posted by IEatFriedPikmin
No dynamic lighting or shadowing you just get blinded when you look at the sun lol. I was quite dissapointed, their original premise was that they were going to upgrade all the lighting in HL2 what you get is basically bloom (i know its better though) You showed the stained glass window bit (which is the best looking part of the game) yet real Volumetric light looks alot better and reacts better when you / and or objects run through are in the light.
Also In this screen you can see the improvements over the static lighting HL2 has
(1) there is the dynamic light on the roof that reacts and lights everything correctly
(2) the muzzel flash actually lights up the environment unlike HL2
(3) All shadows are dynamic not the best example but the shelf unit and boxes all are emmiting a real time shadow.
(4)nothing to do with lighting but you can see some nice particles in the pic something which HL2 has very little off (the original Halo 1 had tons though lol)
EDIT: I OWN BOTH GAMES
idk... i cant see the 2nd pic, but from the 1st one, it seems like HL2 did a better job.
I dont own F.E.A.R. but I have played the demo. I might get it if I can find it on sale any time soon.
thats funny how HL2 is already starting to get dated after only a year. i still think it is one of the best looking games ever, including the 360 games.
Oh that sux I guess they don't like people (like me) directly linking their PicsOriginally Posted by IEatFriedPikmin
I've owned Hl2 for awhile the GFX engine is just so stale (now the physics engine is a different story) at least woundingchaney agrees with me (the patch fixes those bugs BTW) Hl2 still looks ok it's just i've been spoilded with 3dMark 05 and F.E.A.R
The lighting was unbelievable, and that helicoptor was easy to take down. Just hit it like you do for the rest of them in HL2, plus you had all those metal plates up for shielding.
