No, not "first comment!" It must be only the word "First" done in ALL CAPS followed by a string of exclamation points and ones.

Mkilbride Dec 14 2009 replied:

But Halo is one of the most over-rated and junky FPS's ever made, it was only redeemed to due it's Vehicle gameplay which was fun, but everything else about it was horrible, including it's obvious rip-off of Half-Life story.

phil44 Dec 30 2009 replied:

Well actually, wasn't the first halo book written AFTER the first halo game, as an addition to the halo universe? And half-life 1 came out before halo 1, soo.. Don't take this the wrong way, i like both franchises, but your statement just seems..factually wrong. Or are you talking about that halo bible thing bungie/microsoft has. If so, that doesn't mean anything as halo's reveal to the public came with its first game.

Liliana_Light Jan 9 2010 replied:

Book was written after the first game, after HL. I refuse to enter the Halo vs. Half-Life debate here. I will only say that Halo was fine, but Half-Life was better for various reasons. By the way, Halo is definitely not a ripoff of Half-Life, and phil44 was right that the first book came out after Halo 1, which came out after Half-Life.

Looks good, downloading now.

Nope, they're both good, and the stories aren't remotely similar. There is absolutely no comparison. I enjoy them both for different reasons.

''Only Steam and a Orange-Box based game required to play!'' what does that mean? i need to have an orange box? couse i only have the original half-life 2 and CSS.

It means you need one of the games featured in the Orange Box (I.E: Portal, HL2, or TF2). As long as you have one of those, you can run this - you don't need all 3.

Andokool12 Dec 15 2009 says:

Should be of high quality, downloading. :D

To just say a little something though... It's been in development for 9 years, honestly if I were you guys I would've settled with UT3 for Unreal 3 or something.

I just find Source restricts most of it's games and mods to looking like Half-Life 2.

9 years = working with the idea / making 3-4 prototypes of the game.

What you are about to play is about a years worth of work.

We are not going to be really approaching that until around Beta 2.0 or Beta 3.0.

However, around Patch 2 we will be emailing Valve to hopefully get a Steam News release - to get a lot more players to fill the servers.
