Half-Life 2 close to release

By Derek Sooman on
With all the current excitement surrounding the release of Doom III, you can bet that the folks behind Half Life 2 don't want you to forget their game as well.

Now expected some time in September of this year, Half Life 2 is just about to be shipped to Vivendi for publishing. But not before it was shown at the second annual G-Phoria awards show, held at the Shrine Auditorium in Southern California. And this time, gamers got a chance to take a shot at the controls of this new game.

Minimum system requirements appear to be a 1.2 gigahertz processor with 256 megabytes of RAM and a DirectX 7 video card. The recommended spec is 2 gigahertz or higher processor, 512 megabytes of RAM and a DirectX 9 video card.

By all accounts, ATI cards are performing best.
