Go here and watch the video of HL2 w/ CS!!! (Right Click Video and go to full screen)However, Newell did have some new tricks up his sleeve--sort of. The crowd at the VU Games booth was treated to a demonstration of the new Counter-Strike based on Half-Life 2's source engine. While the 90-second demo did sport some snazzy new lighting and particle effects, it also looked awfully familiar to many CS veterans. That's because it was a classic Counter-Strike map--Aztec--with many of the same gameplay features found in the earlier version of the game (i.e. shooting, running, grenade-tossing, etc.).
The newly skinned AZTEC looks awesome and the lighting/water effects look great from this 90 second clip.
I am so looking forward to HL2 and all the new mods for it.
