The problem with the hole thing was more to do with the disruptions Sierra caused to the game development & the fact that originally the Relic teams aims were far to high. In the end they had to scrap a lot of good work to get what we got. If you look at the E3 pics you'll see a number of things that never made it to the final version of hw2.

I can't say im not disappointed with how hw2 turned out. The single player was in my opinion at least as good as Cat's SP although i felt it was sometimes obvious that the missions had be changed rather quickly to get rid of previous plans, cut and run jobs never end up as good as the original ideas and it could easily be said that the final version of hw2 is just that, a cut & run job. Personally Id really like to know just how far HW2 was mutated to get it out, from what they planed to what they started on & for a time what "looked" like being in the final release because it's quite obvious that there's a lot of material missing.

As for HW2's modabality, Well it ended up taking 4/5 years to get the original HW to where it is now & a lot of the first few years were simply making the tools to be able to do it. It took some very talented people to get HW off the ground & go from being a pipe dream to reality. HW2 regardless of the problems & annoyances is quite a flexible engine to work with & like it's forerunner it's not going to be a 5 minute job either. For the moment it's not easy but then that's part of the reason people are willing to do it, because it's not easy.

If you asked me if i think HW2 has a future i would say it may well do, As long as people still keep making an effort & as long as progress continues then it'll go on. You must remember that the average game life is quite short, 6 months to a year & HW was something the gaming industry first. HW2 is a decent game, no it's not a pile of sh*t, but neither is it revolutionary like the original was. The reviews said it best when they called it evolutionary. On that biases HW2 succeeds & frankly that's all a sequel game needs do these days.
