I was hanging out with some friends the other night who play it a lot. It's a beautiful game, and the developers must've worked really hard on the graphics engine because everything looks smooth and nice. I'm certain you'll enjoy it.

HL2 uses a very well designed game engine, the physics are as near as can be matched to real world physics and the gameplay reflects this.
The graphics can be set to run on anything from a GEForce 2 through to a Radeon 9800 or above with equal enjoyment.

I enjoyed it, the only drawback is that the single player missions plays like the first part of a book, and you are left wondering when you get to find out what is going to come next. It is not conclusive in anyway.

Doom 3 kicks HL2's butt when it comes to sitting alone in the dark with surround sound and a 21' monitor scarind the pants off yourself, HL2 beats Doom 3 for general playability and everall enjoyment.

I thought Half Life was the worst game ever to come from the minds of people and Half Life 2 doubly so. its a terrible game, the Half Life games are just to over rated.

There are no more Samurai, they were made obsolete during the Meji Restoration. Obviously though, you were under the impression that I was a Samurai...how peculiar...

Yup, the Ninja clans were all wiped out to a man by the samurai...because they were being a colossal pain in the butt :)

.....apart from 1 clan who managed to smuggle away in an Opium ship bound for Newcastle where, legends say, they operate as soldiers of fortune.. :D

Then the age of Sengoku Jidai is upon us again and we must seek out the last heir of the Tokugawa Shogunate to destroy this abomination :D

Actually, it has always made me smile to listen to people arguing that the Ninja clans were all destroyed, these guys specialised in disappearing and remaining unnoticed :)
They were sure to have survived, although I am also reasonably certain that they have never established schools of Nin Jitsu to spread their art....
