Half-Life 2 Preview

Computer and Video Games' Half-Life 2 Preview has been posted, this is the online version of the print preview that appeared in a recent issue PC Zone UK magazine. The article is based on getting to check out the game first-hand, offering impressions, screenshots, developer quotes, and more, all spanning no fewer than 11 pages of text. Here's a bit of breathless anticipation: "Clearly Half-Life 2 is reaching completion, and is currently in a stage of extensive play testing. The deep-set rings under the eyes of Valve's talented team testify to that. With Gabe's introduction to HL2's development background done, it was time for him to return to work, leaving me in the hugely capable hands of Doug. As he started loading up the game, I caught myself gripping my chair, knuckles drained of colour and sweat beads marking the leather covering of the arm rests..."

DX2 and HL2 are closer in terms of design and gameplay than DX and HL, from the way it sounds. HL2 seems to be taking more to DX's "solve things your own way" approach, and DX2 is taking out the skill system and replacing it with a deeper augmentation system.
The difference is in that HL2 revolves around the static character Gordon Freeman, while DX2 allows you to play a character of your own design.

And anyone who thought Deus Ex sucked is wrong. Anyone who knows me knows how much of a DX fanboy I am, and that there is no possible circumstance in which I would back down on this statement. So don't bother replying.
