I think Doom 3 looks better than Half-Life 2, may not run better or be as "accessable" for modding, but i think for the atmosphere it added to doom 3 (one of the only things it had going for it) it was far and beyond the best looking engine thus far. (Don't even start and that low res texture crap enless you have a computer you think could even run higher res textures or $5000 to blow on one). Half-Life 2 has physics going for it, and nice modelling (graphics wise), but the textures and perfectly square enviorments dont strike me as awesome...they did 2 years ago when i was actually excited about HL2, but not anymore.

(trying to keep this as flame-free as possible for the sake of people hating my opinions :D)

CS isnt usualy the overdone game blizzard style, because it has a relatively small team maintaining it.. I sure hope they would increase that manpower on it, giving out new models\maps and textures ..

I guess that updates to CS:S will come once DOD:S is done and released.

Hmmm. Pre-ordered HL2 from GameStop. Got HL2 complete w/CS Source the day it first came out. Paid $54.95 (US dollars) minus $5.00 pre-order amount which I had already paid to reserve a copy. Total cost paid on the day it was released $49.95 (US dollars). Did same deal w/Halo 2. Only way to go for me.

It suffers from the occasional lag spike. Few and spread out, but so far it is running smoothly :)
