"Thank Gordon for ValVe"
This game is definatley one fo the greatest games of all time, its sequels just get better and better, so I highly reccomend this game to FPS and action/adventure fans.
There was an update reccently to the source engine that lowers the strain on your system, so even my stock packard bell iStart can run it close to full. If you have to you can out the graphics to low and still not notice the diffrence.
Steam allows for ingame chat with people from groups and your friends list, so it is vital, plus it keeps it up to date.
You only have to wait for the level to load and then the entire level is loaded thanks to the source engines flexibility. Then while playing the only loading you see is when it save your game.
the demo is incredibly short, and the graphics look slightly outdated as there is no HDR (High Dynamic Range) which lights stuff up like it was a real surface. Saving seems to go on forever.
Other than that its a great download
