Pre-Release Review
Oh God, how did i spend 8 hours playing a tech demo?

They promised us so much during the early access pre-alpha 40 years ago, yet I still barely see any progress. This isn't the immersive open-world survival I have been waiting for, but still totally worth 8 hours of your time.

60$ well spent

You're Gabe Newell and in this game you're looking for the lost Half-Life 3 programming code.

Lost Coast is a small technology demo showing off the Source engine's HDR rendering capabilities and it is an additional map originally planned as a section of the chapter Highway 17 of Half-Life 2, but was dropped. Only download this if you like Half Life or Source Engine or waiting for Half Life 3.


This game (or demo) is included with the purchase of Half-Life 2. Game doesn't cost $39.99 USD, "Half-Life Complete" does.

10/10

Just a little tech demo, with some commentary from the great Valve team, it was worth it just to hear Gabe Newell's voice.

Half-Life 2: Lost Coast is a small additional level for the game, playing out in the Half-Life 2 storyline. This release was originally put out as a showcase for developer Valve's HDR Lighting technology, with new gameplay to demonstrate the new effects.

Great little demo game, one map, to show off the power the Source Engine had in 2005, and on today's computers, it still looks amazing. One of the main things this game shows off is HDR, or High Dynamic Range, which mimics your eye's pupil in response to differing levels of light. Give it a try!

Half-Life 2: Lost Coast is a short and brief tech demonstration showcasing the new mechanics and posibilities of the Source Engine used in Half-Life 2 itself, as well as giving you a brief introduction of what the core game itself is like. The segment used here was originally planned to be a part of the original game but was ultimately cut and used as the demo for the game instead, it's short and sweet, a nice and effective demo.
