Let me say from first hand experience that ports are always going to be better on the original system. If for some other reason you do not have this game for the PC by all means get it for XBOX. I myself have played both versions of the game and besides the graphics being downgraded slightly it is still the same game. And when I say the same game I mean the same game. No new bells and whistles attached to this pony. I don't mean it's a bad thing. HL2 still has all the awesome physics that have been supplied by the almighty source engine. All the pulse pounding excitement that you would experience from a blockbuster movie. And lastly all the fun of whacking a hacker with a crowbar. I once hit a hacker with a crowbar in real life and was sent to jail. Sorry Steve ! (Trust me you'll get that joke if you play the game.) This is being hailed as the last great Hurrah for the XBOX so pick it up.
