Top 50 Title:
Half-Life® 2: Episode Two is the second in a trilogy of new games created by Valve that extends the award-winning and best-selling Half-Life® adventure.
As Dr. Gordon Freeman, you were last seen exiting City 17 with Alyx Vance as the Citadel erupted amidst a storm of unknown proportions. In Episode Two, you must battle and race against Combine forces as you traverse the White Forest to deliver a crucial information packet stolen from the Citadel to an enclave of fellow resistance scientists.
Episode Two extends the award-winning Half-Life gameplay with unique weapons, vehicles, and newly-spawned creatures.
I won't get into any spoilers, but this game deserves to get some closure, or maybe the fans do. Anyway this was my favorite part of HL2, and it should get an ending. HL2:EP2:PT2, HL2:EP3 or HL3 doesn't really matter. Anyhow this game feels a bit lost when there is no continuation. But if you've enjoyed HL2, you should pick up Episode 1 and 2. If you haven't played any Half-Life games, do it now!
I wish it was longer, mostly just because it's so good. Everything is just right. I have to be realistic that Half Life 3 will never come. This game utilizes more of the Vortigaunts. After fighting beside them, I really want to play as one. The puzzles aren't overbearing, and the combat just feels good. I love the iconic sound design and the soundtrack. It's one of those games you don't want to finish because then it will be over. Guess I can just start over. I guess in some ways the levels are linear but I really don't mind. It's just the way I like it and at a really great price!
The exciting latest chapter in the Half-Life story (that will change soon, hopefully), Episode Two manages to innovate the franchise yet again. While not as lengthy as the first two titles in the series, it manages to deliver just as much, if not more, quality content than Half-Life 2. The setting is vastly different, moving from the landscapes of City 17 and its surroundings seen in previous games to large forested vistas, treacherous mines and also a missile silo that is one of the last anti-Combine strongholds on Earth. The driving sections also make a return, this time a lot more engaging and fun, considering you have a sidekick this time, Alyx (that is just as capable in combat as in Episode One), and the beautiful environments you'll be passing through in your attempt to escape the Combine and deliver a vital piece of information. There are also a few new mechanics introduced, but I'll leave that for you to discover. The soundtrack is, again, excellent and the plot is more intriguing than ever. You'll have to show yet again how much of badass you (Gordon Freeman that is) are by saving your friend Alyx from a near-death experience, making it safely to the missile base and finally single-handedly taking out a dozen of strider and twice more hunters (one of them alone was responsible for Alyx's near demise) in your mission to protect the launch of a rocket essential in the anti-Combine movement. The G-man also returns, more creepier than ever, the combine advisors are finally revealed (at least partially) and the final cliffhanger reminds us why the Half-Life's narrative is so unique, personal and profound (or at least, the way information is delivered to the player is). Fans of previous games should definitely buy this one, especially since it's the last entry in the series to date. I advise you to be prepared for the Big Wait if you do so.
Half-Life 2 :Episode 2 brings back Gordon Freeman & Alyx Vance back to the most amazing fps series.It gives you a new experience by expanding the history from the other 2 games and including new enemies,this game is big as the Half-Life 2, this game created the meme Half-Life 3 confirmed, since it was released in 2007 and after that valve didn't create another Half-life so far,i is truly a masterpiece, a must buy, don't question me just press the "buy now" button
Half Life 2: Episode 2 picks up right where Episode One left off...outside of City 17 and in the countryside. This is a unique chapter to the game, as you find yourself out in the hills/forests and away from general civilization. New enemies and elements of the story will be surprising and difficult. The game also has a very nice vehicle segment, and slowly driving away with City 17 in the distance is a terrific story effect. Once again, Alyx will be tagging along with you in your fight to survive. This Episode is a little more full featured and lengthier than the first. It's a quality amount of content and story that is a terrific end (for now) to the Half Life series.
