why isnt there any demo released for HL2? I mean before buying a game I would rather try it out like I do for everyother games, now I've only seend HL2 and Doom3 not realeasing a demo before the game was out why are they not releasing a demo?

Thats a good point actually. I hate it when they release the game BEFORE releasing the demo. I assume they are trying to make more people buy the game, whereas if there was a demo out, they might realise how buggy it is...and not buy the game.

I think there's enough people stocked up with HL2 already heh. I suppose they will release the demo slightly hereafter.

A lot of companies use Demos as another marketing strategy.

So they'll release the game then about a month after they'll release the demo so all the people who were unsure about it could have a go and see for themselves.

What the heck did you just say???

Did you read the other posts? We don't know when (or even if) Valve will put out a demo. If they do, somebody will probably post a link to it though.

valve never even released a demo of the original Half Life, the only one I saw was a third party demo called "Day One" or something similar. I don't think Valve will ever release a demo for HL2 personally.

If you just want to make sure it runs you can try CounterStrike Source.

It's totaly free right?

If you are wondering if it is fun and worth the money, read the reviews, and play Halflife 1

no I played HL1 and I'm pretty sure I'm gonna like HL2 maybe but it's just that I don't get whey they can't release a demo I don't really like buying anything if I didn't try before even because we are talking about 60$ if it was 5$ I wouldn't care but for 60 then I'll think twice before making that move
