I know saw a 7min trailer this other day, looks great, but I think that Doom3 will be better, heard that HL2 is gonna requier 2Ghz or more same about Doom3, and GeForceFX 5900 to run with the best grapichs
Half life 2 will suposedly be playable (although with much of the settings turned down, or completely off) on a 700 mghz system with a Geforce 2 card....Doom 3 on the other hand...I hear you'll need at least a 1.5 gighz system just to be able to run the game, even with all the graphical enhancements turned off.
I think Doom 3 will be fun, but the AI for that game is non-existant. the enemies just run straight at you, just like in the old doom games. The game is pretty much entirely dependant on the graphics and atmosphere.
Halflife2 on the other hand, has the best AI that has ever been in any game, period. The demo is truley amazing, and the AI oponents look brilliant. I think Half Life 2 will triumph over doom 3, which would be nothing without it's graphics.
I heard there was no A.I. that it was all just lies and scripted work. Well at least that was the reason the hacker stole the half life 2 code or whatever. I'm all for this great game though, original half life owned and I expect no less of its sequel
Yeah ain't that some shit about that stolen code? Oh well, makes me wonder if that hasn't happened before somewhere. First I've heard of it...anyway only having a meager 800 mhz system, ATI Radeon 9000 64 Meg and 512 MB RAM, I fear I'ma bit out of therace for today's nevwr games, but then that makes the older ones I missed first hand cheaper, and that's where I do my best shopping.

Daaamn... bought the computer a year or so ago and the graphics memory isnt enough... stupid cheap 32MB *mutters into the night*
i cant wait for it to come out right after halo 2 so noone will care haha. i hate hf 2 no offense to people who like it but i think it sucks and doest deserve to be called game of the year. but thats just me. i am counting on halo 2 coming out and everyone goin to buy it and get caught up in halo then forget about half life hehe. but u never know they might be online competitors..
not true mr badass i disagree i think half life 2 will BOMB due to the fact that it sucked. and always will suck. i garentee to anyone on this forum that halo 2 will surpass half life and doom (although i like doom) by an enormouse amount. half life was only said to be good cuz IT was the first fps or something so it was also the only of its kind out.
Half life 2 will bomb becuae it SUCKED? have you played the game? lol oookkkk...
HALO 2 has nothing new to bring to the table. its going to have horrible weapons bad story (if any at all) the graphics engine will probley not be optimized (that means it will run horrible on your computer). HALO 2 is nothing special.
"Your totaly wrong The One, Wolfenstein3D was the first fps, Half Life wasint very original in any way, it has basicly the same plot as in Doom."
Have you played Doom??? It has no story...LITERALLY it had NO story it was just a run through the levels killing aliens. Half life had a story.
I don't understand the hostility in this thread. Say what you want about Half Life 2 or Halo 2, the simple fact is both will sell like hot cakes. I will bet all the money I have that neither game will "bomb", both will be incredibly popular, and probably very solid all around.
Also, Theone101, Half Life was NOT the first FPS, far from it. It simply did so much new stuff for the genre and it was recognized for it. It was teh first game to really use scripted scenes to their full potential, it was the first FPS game that really relied on it's story to push you forward, rather then the fact that you'd be getting bigger and better guns as you went on. It was also the first game that had popular mods.
Halo, on the other hand, didn't really do anything new, aside from the vehicular gameplay. It was a very solid game, but not revolutionary. In fact, I think it's popularity stems heavily from the fact that it was primarily a console game, and console FPS's are usually very flaky, where as Halo was solid all around.
Bottom line, no matter how much you may dislike either game, they will both sell extremely well.
