You mean just... Half-Life 2?

I spent the christmas of 2004 (well, 3 days afterwards anyway) just playing that game. It was amazing for me at least. I was taken away with the graphics (I had recently got a Radeon X800 XT) and storyline... had an amazingly fun time playing it and was probably the best christmas in a long time. The mini-puzzles built into FPS style I was impressed with... I'm not sure if anyones really acheived that before (I may be wrong of course). I completed it on easy after 3 days (I was living on many many chocolates, an 8 pack of red bull) that were practically get up > play half life > go to bed days.

Anyway... amazing game.

Would it add more unique gameplay?

I heard that this episode is only good for 4 hours of gameplay, or ain't that correct?
I've read this in a magazine, so I would presume that it's true.

yeah thats right but thers gona be more episodes
sgwreviews
Ah yes I see,
but what do these episodes cost? Cause the value of 4H of gameplay ain't that much for me. Will it be like 30$ or something like that (€25)?

It's $19.95, which still seems like a lot for 3-4 hours. There's a SiN Episode 1 too, same price, same length.

I have bought the original Half Life 2.. Graphics and gameplay are just top notch, but they were repeating the use of the gravity gun too much imo..

I just think that it isnt worth buying an expansion (or whatever this is called).
I'm having way more fun with Fear multiplayer and WoW

Halflife 2 is a master 18 + Game

I'd go for half life II: Episode one if it didn't require the use of steam. I use a crap computer to access the internet so my good one that can play HL II is safe as possible. I wish there was some kind of patch or something that would let that happen.

If you're in the US, Circuit City has this game supposedly for $7.99 starting today according to fatwallet.com

Quite a bargain.

This game was totally not worth it, its more like an interactive short movie. Way too many scenes where you can't do anything. I like the part where you're in the dark constantly, though. Alyx begins doing funny things when your flashlight is off. She will make freaky noises, for instance, and when you then turn the flashlight back on she will laugh and yell "Gotcha!" Wink

cant someone give me the damn expansion >.<
It looks so ****** beautiful >w<

Yeah this game was awesome, although towards the end it seemed to get very repeditive.

I still have to get this one. I loved the original Half-Life 2, though. It has to be one of the best games in its genre (if not the best, even!).

Just one question about Episode I, though: Does it have anything to do with the original game? Like, is it a sidestory or a direct sequel, continuing after HL2's ending? I'm asking because HL2's ending seemed kinda... well... I'm not gonna spoil it, but those who finished it know what I'm talking about.

I just bought the expansion and the most exciting thing for me was the Episode 2 trailer that plays at the end!

Alex dies!?!? Who the hockey thought that would make a nice plot twist?!?!?!

Although, I do look forward to meeting those crazy three legged mini-strider with the stacked eyes. They look tight.

Anyways, I just love the gameplay and I'd probably buy any expansion Valve came out with. So far, everything Valve's done has been A-OK in my book, even though I have no idea what A-OK stands for, or even if it is a drug or not... moving along.

Yeah, so if you haven't bought the expansion yet, DO SO NOW!!

To answer your question, it is the immediate sequel to what happened in the Citadel. A cutscene begins where the last cutscene in HL2 ends, and then you're thrown into some puzzles.

I see. Its very nice..I love Half life series..

I've played the original Half-Life and its expansion and I think it's totally awesome. Played also Half-Life 2 and boy, never was I dissapointed. It's one hell of fun-filled action game! Can't wait to play its new expansion game.

I've read some reviews and they say that the gameplay and storyline is good and comparable to HL2 but the only problem is, it is way to short! Gamespot even says the if you are an FPS veteran then probably, you can finish the game in just merely 4 hrs! Damn! That's the point where I'm disappointed.. Sad

Anyway, still, I'll grab and play this game whenever I have the chance! Wink

It's a nice game.
think to play,but my pc is too bad.

Yep a very good game, a great continuation by Valve. They really have stamped themselves as one of the premier developers with this franchise. I loved the commentary also and I went through it again just to hear it all. It's good to get an insight into how the devs approach making these games.

You, sir, are too paranoid. Razz As long as you aren't dumb about your internet useage and take a couple of precautions your computer will be fine. The game is really fun so far. Some pretty good action moments.

Half-Life 2 : Episode One is a worth buy if you're a fan of the series! It's like an interactive DVD with commentary extras. Don't get SiN Episodes, it's a boring shooter and a total waste of ur money.

OMG! I loved this game so much. Better graphics, dark, challenging zombines!, continues directly from the end of HL2 and especially the trailer of Episode Two that plays in the end of the game. One more thing, Alyx gets corny when u turn off your flashlight, she tries to scare you with making sounds and says 'gotcha!' when you turn ur flashlight back. LOL, Alyx could die too! i thought she's immortal in this game.

Can't wait for Episode Two, the graphics look better and whatever happened to Alyx after the ~censored~spoiler~? Shocked

-edit- you can't finish this game in merely 4-5hours unless you're an FPS veteran or using the 'buddha' cheat.

It's nothing new though. Except some new effects.
I think Steam is just getting more and more money with it.
I personally hate Steam.
