Half-Life² XBox - Hands on Preview by IGN
IGN have managed to Score some playtime with the XBox Version of Half-Life², which is due for Release Later this Year. They also have a few Screenshots and Video Footage to show off, as well as an Interview with Jay Stelly of Valve.
The result, as we saw, is Impressive. Half-Life² looks remarkably Good on the XBox. Which is to say, even at this early stage -- in the four areas we played -- Valve's title might be One of the Best Looking, if not the Best Looking, XBox Game on Microsoft's Console. Players of the original PC version will notice a lack of Detail compared to the original PC version, as well as some Aliasing and Resolution Issues, but we played an Early version, which lacked polish, optimization, and in all fairness, just isn't Finished yet. So sure, the XBox version will not match the highest Resolution or the Graphic superiority of its PC brethren, but for an XBox Game ? As former editor Kaiser Hwang might say, it really does look Amazing.
