Half-Life 2 review
Half-Life² --> perfection in every way
- Amazing and varied gameplay
- Gravity gun (wooot!!!)
- Intelligent gameplay (not just run-and-gun)
- Great AI
- Has a realistic feel to it
I can go on for ages...
Some complain about glitches, I never encountered them myself though.Summary:
The long awaited sequel to Half-Life, the game that revolutionized the FPS-genre, has fially been released.
We've waited years for this game... but is it worth it?
YES IT IS!
But lets start out with the story:
You're Gordon Freeman, a scientist who survived the Black-Mesa incident (HL1). Now you're back to rescue City17 from the grip of the combines, half-alien half human creatures.
While doing so, you'll encounter 10 foot 3 legged spiderlike robots with a plasmagun, you'll race across a beach full of nasty antlions. You'll get stuck in a city filled with zombies and even chop 'em in half using the gravgun. This game has it all.
The graphics are amazing, the best I've seen so far (even better than DoomIII's). So is the sound. The puzzles aren't to complex but offer a nice variety to the gameplay.
The game comes with CounterStrike Source and Half-Life² Deathmatch. Counterstrike source is an updated version of the old CS but with better graphics and bots . HL²eathmatch (there's also a TDM mode) is just your plain ol' (T)DM but with the HL² engine. I'm not a big fan of it myself though, CSS rules!
The system requirements are amazingly low too:
Minimum System Configuration
1.2 GHz Processor
DirectX 7 capable graphics card (64 MB or higher)
CD or DVD rom drive
Preferred System Configuration
2.4 GHz Processor
DirectX 9 capable graphics card
CD or DVD rom drive (retail version only)
This game won't disapoint any FPSfan and is a nice way to start your FPS-addiction.
It's a must buy, a pure classic, and that's all there is to say about it!
