About

Essentially a tech demo, “Half-Life 2: Lost Coast” sole purpose was to show off the new high-dynamic-range-rendering of the Source engine, it was a welcome addition to the franchise. It’s a free addition to the game that can be downloaded through Steam by the owners of Half-Life 2. Gordon Freeman founds himself near a group of decaying piers, fully armed and ready to explore the monastery above him, fighting through the Combine forces.
High-dynamic-range-rendering introduced realistic lighting effects to the game, emulating even camera’s overexposure to the bright light, which was eventually moved to the main game. Lost Coast story is conveyed without cutscenes, every part of the level is tailored specifically to demonstrate the changes, made by developers. Even though it was originally created for the Half-Life 2, it was removed from the main game, alongside some minor story details. It’s not a full standalone game and wasn’t intended as one.

Half Life 2 Lost Coast is a playable Demo version whose source engine has been expanded to INCLUDE HDR (High Dynamic Range). This free Demo showcases the fantastic new Possibilities of the improved Engine.

SMALL DEMO SYMPATHETIC: half-life 2: LC is just a technical demo that introduced HDR lighting to the source engine and nothing more. Don't expect a real game! Try if you find it for free otherwise you can drop it!

You can play through in 15 minutes and also not get any story but its supposed to be a graphic demo. worst bucks to game ratio. It should cost only 3$ regular to give people a taste of the game (besides the half life 2 demo). I would also like a demo for this game, which would lead as far as the stairs.

I'm not going to do a very built assessment by the abuse on the game time. Overall the game respects perfectly HalfLife 2 and its codes with a graphic enhancement which in my opinion represents what a beautiful game! From the action, a funny little adventure but extremely short and no other chapters available.... to buy in bundle or in the Pack Orange I think it's his name.

Product received for free add one free bundled with half life 2, lost coast is a small annex content making linkage technology showcase. Staging more lighting leads to the valve source engine, it allows the player to see the evolution of the engine. In addition, the game has a playable part of about 20 minutes. Short but intense. with attention one can notice that some interface improvements were made between it and the original game: half life 2. Friendly.

I play on Linux. Linux version: excellent. The game a technological demo in the universe of half-life 2. The décor is beautiful, it's beautiful, but it's very short, we want more! Replayability, achievements Nope. In short a technological demo... It's irrelevant, but it comes with half-life 2. GNU/Linux the Linux version is excellent. I have not encountered any problems and the game turns to the hair on my machine. OS: Linux Mint 16 x64, MATE Edition. Hardware: i5 3570K OC @ 4.5 GHz, NVIDIA 670GTX, 16GB RAM. Screens: Triplescreen, including one vertical, configured in separate X-screens.
