Half-Life 2 Xbox Review!

A News for Half-Life 2

The folks over at IGN have put up their reviews for the Half-Life 2 port to Xbox! It covers most PROs and CONs of the Xbox port, and contains spoilers for the HL2 storyline (if you have not played that game yet). It gave the port a whopping 9.4/10!
Quote The final, reviewable build, however, portrays Valve's technical success. Half-Life 2 on Xbox runs at a smooth 30 fps with little to no aliasing, no shimmering, and a smooth-moving, uninterrupted single-player experience. It's true, however. There are sections in the game, like in the PC version, where a chain of exploding barrels hurls thousands of polygons into the air and bodies break into parts and flop lifelessly onto uneven ground as the Havok engine does its thing -- and the framerate does suffer.
Looks like Valve really made a great deal of effort to make the FPS playable. More here!
