Exclamation How do you think the half life 2 physics engine will compare to Far Cry's physics????

I just played a really fun game called Far Cry. I fell in love with the physics it had like for eg. the light fixture that was shot at making it move wildly and spraying light rays all over. I about died!!! So how will HL 2 compare?

One time I nudge one of the barrels in the demo "research" and than walked in front of it and died. I died by a 0.5 km/h moving barrel.

But then, at the last moment, it changes trajectory and hits you in the eye. You think to yourself "Well, at least I got that out of the way", but then the giant cock rears back and stabs your eye again, and again, and again. Eventually, this giant cock is penetrating your gray matter, and you begin to lose control of your motor skills. That's when the giant cock slaps you across the cheek, causing you to fall out of your chair. Unable to move and at your most vulnerable, the giant cock finally lodges itself in your anus, where it rests comfortably for 4, maybe 5 hours. That's what using Mac OSX is like.

Yup and befoer the game came out there was this trailer. People were saying that they couldnt distinguish that trailer whether it was a game or a movie. What a bunch of crap.
I checked the movie and the people animation sucked. Counter Strike has better animation

Far Cry was waaaaaaay too overrated.

And so is Half-Life 2. They're both games, no need to lose sleep over which physics are better. Sheesh...

It wasn't really "over-rated" but it just seems the makers concentrated 99% of the project on the graphics and lacked many other things....part of the game seems imcomplete and such..yeah the cut-scenes, dialouges and such are crap...really horrible...

How would we know if HL2 is out yet!!!!

Far Cry has better physics then almost every game out now. My opinion.

You make it seem like CS has bad animations. CS has some of the best, fluent animations I've ever seen (talking about the weapon models). Notice how all the hands in CS aren't disfunctional and or unproportional? Besides the guns added by Valve (Galil, Famas, the new knife, the shield, ect.). Gooseman is damn talented.

Comparing a game to a game that has not been released yet = retarded.
Comparing a game to a game that is going to be released by a developer who developed a game that kicked major ass and is now making a second game that will supposedly kick major ass = retarded.
Putting down a developer who debuts a game that kicks ass (if not major) just because he did not have the 40 million dollars that is required to build the supposedly major kick ass game = retarded.

I would just give credit to Crytek for atleast trying.. look at painkiller.. awesome physics but its still not fun as Quake 1/2 (the way I was hoping it to be.. and not another serious sam clone)

Valve has spent 40 mil on the project, Carmack may have done even more, now this developer while being on a tight budget gave us something to play through, seriously I was so hoping that D3 and HL2 will hit the market this april, guess what they didn't and if I did not have far cry I probably would not have even upgraded my cpu or video card for that matter!

I hadn't had a decent game since december and that's a lot of time.. now I have something to play atleast!

I think Far Cry physic is very good- especially considering physic engine is made in-house. They are small rookie dev who doesn't have much money, they had to concentarte in graphic and gameplay-I don't see anything wrong with that.

Besides, while I do agree Far Cry is mostly about pretty gfx, still its gameplay has much more substance than game like Max Payne2 or Unreal2 IMO- for a shooter, Far Cry isn't very shallow.

Farcry's physics were a nice touch, but for the most part they were completely useless. HL2's physics are supposed to be an essential part of the game.

Actually it's much more fun than Quake 1 and 2. Or any Quake game for that matter.

Yikes.. just got into Far Cry. I really can't see where all the hate is coming from. I think the game is absolutely brilliant so far. It pisses all over Unreal II and imo just about every other single-player experience in the past year (maybe 2). Far Cry isn't a gimick.. it's a great game. Geez, just about every other pc game has a lame story as well, so don't harp on that (well except for the brilliant ones like Half-Life & Fallout). The troop dialogue fits in well.. corny, just as it should be. The physics are GREAT compared to most games out there, but of course HL2 will one-up it. I'm sure this game has stirred up devs. Props goes out to the most beautiful game I have ever played.. wait, wasn't that supposed to be my first point?

You know what's funny?

When you criticize HL2 and say that it's looking like it won't turn out that well because of the antics at Valve, some people sink their teeth into your ass like they're rabid pitbulls.

Yet those same exact people then go around posting about how great HL2 is going to be, and how its physics are going to own, blablabla.

So apparently it's OK to say HL2 is going to own, not having played it. But it's not OK to say it's not going to be that great, still not having played it? Whatever...

The truth is no one knows. If HL2 ever comes out I guess we'll see how good it really is. I have a hard time believing its going to live up to expectations, though, which are still sky high despite everything that's happened.

early benches seen on HL2 shows that its alot less demanding then Farcry..
which could mean they can spare more CPU time to the physics engine..

So HL2 will prolly have a somewhat more accurate way of dealing with it..
Havent checked up alot on Havok2 tho, looks neat..

Doom3 should be mentioned too, its their own physics engine and from what ive read it sounds very impressive..
If someone wants to refer to the alpha, its not really applied alot there so dont bother.
should be on par with HL2s implementation of Havok2 i would guess, if not better (or worse for that matter)..
just guessing tho, dunno how good havok2 can be really..

Max Payne 2's and Painkiller's physics (they both use Havok) are way better than FarCry's, can't imagine what HL2 would bring (i believe it will also use Hakov but i hope it's a newer version).
