Half Life 2 update

A completely free and extensive community-developed update for Half-Life 2 featuring beautiful lighting, countless bug fixes, and a brand new Community Commentary Mode. With Half-Life 2: Update, there’s never been a better time to revisit City 17.

Since I have a rubbish slow connection I will try it tomorrow having downloaded it over night

Re: Half Life 2 update

From what I've seen this is the same quality jump one gets when switching from HL1 to HL1:Source (Not the HL1:High Def Textures that you get with HL1:BS)

Re: Half Life 2 update

Just made the mistake of thinking it was a patch for the game, not a new install with updated textures.  So I just installed HL2 via steam and then started the update, its a new install not a patch.  Also has no achievements from the original install game, so save your self a 2gig download and just get the update.

Re: Half Life 2 update

Other than moved or missing secret caches, I am not seeing a single Visual/glitch/bug improvement over the original, get feeling this is just a hype lemming.
