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..."

Picture what it would be like to play in a huge cardboard box and you'll understand what the level design is like in Deus Ex.
Yes. It's a cardboard box. A big fucking empty, open cardboard box. As opposed to Doom or Quake where you're on rails at all times.
DX uses SYSTEMATIC level design. It employs a large open area, sets rules, and allows the player to choose their own path through it. That is what makes Deus Ex the greatest game ever made.
