Honestly I wouldn't know; I'm a noob when it comes to PC's.
On a different note, I want people's opinions on HL2-post. Specifically monkeyman b/c thus far I've seen we seem to like similar games. What I mean is that I've seen so much of HL2 being focused around a city (and some episodes in a forest) and I was like this doesn't look like HF at all. I guess what I mean to say, do the HL sequels do the original justice in setting and enemy design? I mean I loved Black Mesa and I can't think of HL taking place in an urban city you know? I doubt I will hate it or give it an average score I just wanted some opinions.
I think they do the originals justice, if you play them all in one go especially so (half life 2, episode one, episode two i mean).
They are so grand and epic, to me at least, finishing HL2 and Episode 1 left me feeling so content and the levels I had just completed, it was such a satisfying awesome set of games to play.
The enemy design and settings are awesome in my opinion.
Episode 2 is kicking so much ass right now. The scale and puzzles and settings are brilliant throughout the whole series.
