    Um...are you feeling ok? Not, like, feverish or anything, right?

    It's not on the list. Review isn't due for another hour.

    Damn gamespot, they removed it. It was at editors choice, let me see if I can find the page on my browser cache.

    They did the same for halo 2. The score was posted on editors choice for like 5 mins or so, then they removed it.

    Anyway - you'll see in an hour. If it didn't recieve 9.2, I'll admit ownage.
    Unfortunately, it's not on my cache.

    Multiplayer and AI, I'm gonna guess that they are the things which brought it down from a million out of 10!!!!111

    I want to play HL2 now, can I wake up tomorrow and it be the 25th of December?

    9.2? Isn't that kinda low? I mean yesterday I watched the binks and these movies were still amazing? How the hell can HL2 get less then 9.3?

    Even GTA SA, Halo2, Burnout 3, Ninja Gaiden get higher points...

    Well i know i'm probably in the minority saying this but i absolutely HATE gamespot. I dont value any of the online reviewers tbh, but GS i especially dislike, so they're opinion means nothing to me.

    A score is meaningless without the accompyning text.

    Well, if it's indeed 9.2, I admit it's lower than I expected. Though anything 9+ is a hands-down great score... I do expect more. Then again, in the recent months, I've found GameSpot reviews way off.

    Hope it's not Greg Kasavin to review it. He's going mental.

    HL2 got 9.2 cause Gamespot couldn't afford to play it :/

    Hmm, from everything I've read on Half-life 2 I'm gonna have to, once again, disagree with Gamespot. But we'll see.

    Guys it's at least a believeable score.

    Anyway - Gamespot did do a diversion with halo 2, by first posting 9.1 and then 9.4 (again, in editor's choice). From what I've seen with my eyes - it's 9.2, however, it's not 100% confirmed, and there is a chance of the score to be higher or lower. (so it could be gamespot screwing with us)

    Don't believe me if you want, but I'll say what I saw. :)

    :LOL: I can't beleive some of you are actually dissapointed with a 9.2...according to Gamespot:

    No reason to be pissed off at Gamespot because they didn't think Half-Life 2 was god's gift to gaming.

    Eh? I thought his review of Doom 3 was sober and spot on.

    Me too, I hope I am wrong.

    But gamespot banned all users who saw the 9.2 score.

    Apparently, it seems somewhat legitimate.
