You are back in the shoes of Gordan Freeman, but this time the alien threat has spread across the world. Not only from the Xen Invaders but an all new threat has surfaced, known as the "Combine". Together they have caused global carnage. Working for the G-Man - it is your mission, with aid of Eli and Alyx Valance, to stop the threat of global domination. Use an array of weapons such as a pistol, shotgun, M-29 and Grenade Launcher along with others to finish of your enemies, which range from Combine Soldiers to Ant Lion's!

The game is a FPS, so, you have to shoot every enemy that you're meeting. But you have also to duck or to take cover. Players will lead Gordon through different environments and also drive two vehicles, equiped with a turbo and with weapons. Gordon will also have the opportunity to ask to rebels to follow him, to stop doing it or even to ask for ammo or for restoring health. The Gravity Gun is also allowing the player to take an object and to launch it on enemies, or to remove something blocking his path.


  • Advanced facial animation system delivers the most sophisticated in-game characters ever seen. With 40 distinct facial "muscles," human characters convey the full array of human emotion, and respond to the player with fluidity and intelligence
  • From pebbles to water to trucks, all respond as expected, as they obey the laws of mass, friction, gravity, and buoyancy
  • Source's shader-based renderer (like the one used at Pixar to create movies such as Toy Story and Monster's Inc.) creates the most beautiful and realistic environments ever seen in a video game
  • Neither friends nor enemies charge blindly into the fray. They can assess threats, navigate tricky terrain, and fashion weapons from whatever is at hand

I don't get why people call this one of the greatest games ever. I liked the first one (which I also thought was very overrated) more. HalfLife2
