Half-Life 2 Trailer

IGN's Half-Life 2 Media Page now offers a link to a Half-Life 2 teaser (the link was broken for a bit after being posted, but seems to work properly now). The 11.9 MB movie is in QuickTime format. There are also Half-Life 2 Impressions on GameSpot with a detailed rundown on what they saw, concluding with: "Frankly, we were blown away by what we saw of Half-Life 2 here, and though this was a rolling demo (albeit of real-time gameplay), Valve proceeded to demonstrate the bug bait level in action, which looked just as good as in the rolling demo. Based on the 25-minute Half-Life 2 demo, we can say with reasonable certainty that this is definitely a game worth looking forward to."

True, you CAN do more within the invironment because of the games design.
Exactly. You can interact with the environment, use it to your advantage. You can play the game a hundred times and never play it the same way twice. The player can choose what to do, not just follow the developer's intentions.
This is Systematic Level Design. Read Harvey Smith's powerpoint on the subject on Gamasutra.

Move tables. Throw things. Nice gimmick.
Answer me a question, yes or no: Have you played Deus Ex?

I think we can both agree that WHITE is the most reflective color there is
A lab coat, when light is shined at it, makes a bright white color. NOT a reflective plastic sheen like that which is shown in the Doom 3 video.

Look at the Doom Marine. The plastic sheen is only on his armor(metal)
No, it's also on his skin. I already posted earlier the exact second where you can view an example of this.
