his game hit me so hard. I have been a fan of the Half Life series since it first hit the scene and was pretty excited when Valve decided to take the series in an episodic route. Half Life 2 was just so captivating and the environment so believable. The gameplay was top notch and the story compelling. very good!

Definitely better than Episode 1, it provides an amazing gaming experience, rarely to be found in any FPS out there. Sound, story, even graphics for the mid 2000s', everything fits perfectly one with each other. Simply a masterpiece, a must have if for some reason you didn't buy by now.
Half Life 2 with actual new stuff addedmugaro | June 16, 2014 | See all mugaro's reviews »
A lot of people said episode 1 didn't offer much new, and they were correct. Episode 2 offers quite a bit new stuff to the Half Life universe.
The story is actually really interesting and surprisingly heart breaking for a Half Life game. If you played through half life 1, you'd be surprised at how much depth in the story, writing, voice acting and what not went into this game when Half Life 1's story was pretty bare bones.
We're still waiting for Episode 3, we all want to know what happens. As of writing this, it's 2014 and we've been toiling on the cliff hanger of Episode 2 for 7 years.
Pick up this game and the entire Half Life collection, get in on the know. Join the rest of us that have been clamoring for a sequel to this masterpiece series since 2007.

When Episode 1 hit I wanted more and man I think we all get more than we could handle with Episode 2. The story in this game packed such a bunch and then the end comes and it is still one of the most heartbreaking things I have seen in gaming. Typing this out and reflecting on this game is giving me chills.
Absolutely get this game, and absolutely join us all in the insanity that is waiting for the next installment.
The Pinnacle of the Series - So FarAkiMatti | March 31, 2014 | See all AkiMatti's reviews »
The old Source engine has been taken to new lengths again as Gordon goes through totally different environments compared to the last episode. Cityscapes have changed to rural countryside and forests.
The gameplay is paced very well and the player feels like making progress all the time. Some new enemies are also introduced and some old ones are also reacquainted.
Vehicles are in a more prominent role and they work well enough, though for my tastes there could've been less of them.
The plot goes forward a lot, but I won't tell anymore of that in case you haven't played this gem yet. The ending leaves us at a cliffhanger like no other. Episode 3, pls?
