By taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original, and adding startling new realism and responsiveness, Half-Life 2 opens the door to a world where the player's presence affects everything around him, from the physical environment to the behaviors even the emotions of both friends and enemies.
While I realize that this particular title is getting old, I still get requests for it because so many people are still playing. Just as the original game had a long-lived cult following, this game is enjoying the same treatment.
As far as the numbers go, there was just a bit more of a difference than between earlier tests. A quick check with the calculator shows an increase of between 3-5% for the XTX board from GeCube.
