I've seen some screenshots of Half Life 2, and I ask myself, is Half Life 2 a real "new generation" game? Multiple advertisments said that Half Life 2 has "very improved" graphics, with a new graphics engine, but on the screenshots, I don't see something extremely different from other recent games. So, has Half Life 2 the best graphics quality or not?
Half-Life 2 is the NEXT-GENERATION type of game.
Yes, it has the current best game graphics ever made.
By the way, the quality on some screenshots is not better than, for example, in Soldier of Fortune 2. Why? I don't think that these screenshots are made with low-quality graphics option...
actualy far cry is a next generation game to , so is doom3. will far cry has more of the outdoors , doom3 has better indoors. and hl2 is outdoors and indoors that look impressive. if it was releasd a year ago it would be the first next gen game but now its just one in a long line :p
But its breaking new ground in other places. Unscripted AI. Non-linear missions. And an awesome physics engine.
By the looks of it, HL2 will go down in history like its predasessor.
farcry had the so called unscripted ai to if i remember correct. you can't say anything about hl2 until its out and you have been able to see it. lets hope it will all be like they say it will be or even better :)
Just wait 'till DoomIII comes out, it will blow HL2 out of the water.
I used to map for farcry and it took a lot of work to get the bots to act even close to real. I never did get very good at it though. :lol:
I think that Half-life 2 won't have the best graphics. Doom 3 will. But Half Life 2 is going to be more physics. And Doom is going to have the non scripted AI also.
HL2 has non-scripted AI as well.
HL2 will BLOW D3!! :agreed:
