No texture problems here either

Initial impressions - has the look and feel of the original. Only played about 10 minutes or so - quite a few scripted sequences, but they are well crafted and work as designed. I am already starting to hate the Combine.

One complaint - the levels are loaded just like in the original - in the middle of nowhere. But unlike last time, where it took a few seconds to load, in the sequel it takes a minute or two - and I have 1.5 gigs of memory! Takes you out of the game by disrupting the immersion.

All in all though - I think I am going to like this game. I can't quit put my finger on it, but there is just that something that makes me want to continue onwards and keep playing the game - just to reach that next goal. And once it is reached, something else happens, and I want to reach the next goal. And the next, and next, and so one.

Just like in the original game. This is a VERY good thing.

This is the feeling that was missing in Doom 3. Pretty and flashy graphics, but no gameplay. HL2 graphics may not be as fancy as Doom 3 (when you can see something in the darkness), but Source is pretty high up there. I would rate the Source graphics better then that of Far Cry, and up to par with Doom 3, but in a different way. The lighting is not as fancy as in Doom 3, but everything else is there in spades.

Okay, I gotta go and get ready for work. HL2 will have to wait untill the Christmas break after exams. And then I will play through HL-Source for nostalgia, and then start HL2.
