I figured it'd take about 48-72 hours before someone cracked it. This is one of those games that I don't think I'd buy until having tried it. It has just been in development too long, and there's a lot of hype to live up to. I loved the original Half Life; I'd say this one has to be 2/3 as good as the original for me to play it. If it is, it will still beat Doom 3, which I have enjoyed playing, but is really only groundbreaking in terms of graphics.
