Stiff-sounding show-and-tell wouldn’t matter much elsewhere, but this comes from the folks who made pheromones fearsome and robots our friends—and what they have to say is so interesting and insightful that cuing the next bobbing caption becomes incentive enough to stay tuned. And when full-of-ideas-but-never-full-of-himself director Gabe Newell offers his e-mail address and asks for our feedback, right away we know what to request: Give HL2 the treatment, too, please.

First: the all-new half-life 2 level, Lost Coast, is free. Second: Rather than run the focus group routine, Valve is using the level to give its entire fan base a voice. If we like its lifelike lighting and interactive commentary mode (and we do), the company will implement the features in forthcoming releases (and it is).

Mit knapp 30 Minuten ist Lost Coast ein wahrhaft kurzweiliges Vergnügen, wird doch mehr fürs Auge als für den Abzugsfinger geboten. Aber genau das will Lost Coast ja auch. Zeigen, was wirklich in der Source-Engine steckt. Und das ist eine ganze Menge. Wir dürfen gespannt sein auf die Fortführung der Geschichte in Half-Life 2: Aftermath, in dem HDR-Technologie bereits Verwendung findet.

Definitivamente Lost Coast cumple como demo tecnológica pero nos ha sabido a poco. Es un añadido gratuito de gran calidad, con nuevos gráficos y lo entretenido del nivel que incluye hacen que siendo una descarga gratuita sea de obligada bajada. Aunque sólo sea por curiosidad ya estas tardando en descargarlo de Steam.

On peut se dire "Tout ce temps pour ça !" On termine ce niveau en quelques minutes et on se sent un peu frustré. Il n’y a rien de vraiment intéressant dans Lost Coast, même pas le HDR puisqu’il était déjà disponible dans Day of Defeat Source.
