"An Innovating FPS"

Maxxyboy1000 | Feb. 8, 2014 | Review of Half-Life 2

As a first person shooter, Half life 2 has innovating design and introduces a new standard to the overall gameplay experiences.

Gameplay In Half life 2, you do so much more than just blast random goons. From the get go, you offered the chance to explore the world around you (yes, this includes bumping into the guards causing their aggression). Once you've received your armour and first weapons, you can start having fun with the shooting and physics mechanics.

Story I won't spoil the story for you, but it involves the linear going after the evil character, but with the occasional plot twist and exciting side missions.

Design The graphics in half life 2 are pretty well done. The animations are smooth, the speech and character emotions are well portrayed, and each level feels not only unique but purposeful.

Overall, it's an innovating FPS, and something that sets the benchmark apart from modern & linear first person shooters. 87/100
