Flash Gordon's gonna save every one of us!
In a world where your usual new release’s recommended retail price is $60 and every great leap in graphical prowess seems to lop another few hours off the length, it’s a refreshing change to be able to say that Valve are being really, really good to you. Not content with remastering the PC’s best ever FPS for 360, they’re also packing in two supremely addictive mods in the form of bizarre but compulsive puzzler Portal and Team Fortress 2’s insanely violent cartoon carnage.
And let’s not forget, that’s in addition to Half-Life 2 Episode 1, widely regarded by PC gamers as one of the greatest pieces of add-on ever committed to disc - and then there’s the all-new Episode 2, which really is shaping up to be something special.
I don't really like when they take a PC game or potential PC game and create it for an actual dedicated console such as the PS2 or the Xbox 360. For some reason, the graphics look the exact same and they seem really cheesy. Even more cheese than you would ever see on a pizza.
That is exactly what happened with Half life 1. When they brought it out for the PS2, you would think that they would have added some new stuff, but they never did really, and I don't even think that they tried to make any sort of an improvement on the graphics.
So in my opinion, the only reason they re-create a PC game for an actual system, is so they can easily horde money in. Well, to think about it, I would do the same thing, but I would at least try to improve the graphics and add some new stuff in.
So that's good that they are doing that for the new game, but I think I wouldn't buy it either way. PC type games aren't really my favorite.
