^^ I see what you mean. I have managed to sneak up on Combine before...
The reasons for Gordon's survival is his HEV suite mainly. At full power it acts like tank armour, basically all bullets hit there massive energy field surrounding the suite and basically just bounce off, but it has its limit as you see and need to charge up regulary, with all the crap Freeman gets in, that HEV suite saves his life A LOT of times. Oh and because of the G-Man's interventions at points too, as if it wasn't for him you would have died back on Xen and also up when you destroy the Citadel's dark fusion reactor.
I also have reason to believe that Episode 2 is going to have many less loading times, meaning longer levels.
I thought that Episode One already had much improved levels in case of size. But ofcourse, the bigger the better as long as it doesn't eat perforamnce like crazy.:)
Yes I agree that Episode 1 had longer levels. It is better like that. It means more playing, less loading!
I want the loadings short as possible, I reallty hate waiting a full minuite just so the stupid enigine can load up. 10 secondes should be enough.

You wait a minute?! :eek: My loads are all 15-20 seconds, and my system isn't powerful at all.
Same here! I don't wait that long, even with the Cinematic Mod.

I was just saying I havent really timed my loading times in HL 2 or EP 1. But I really hate load times in games there so anyyoing I fully understand what needs to be done but load times wreck the gameplay.
^^ Not always. Loading times sometimes give my aching hands a rest.
