Some people have come up to me saying “Is HL2 any good?” These people I tend to hit on the head because yes, HL2 rocks.
6 years this was being developed. Was it worth it? God yes. it has:
- A physics engine that actually has a purpose (you can use random bits of scenery as defense AND offense).
- Excellent scalable graphics (my computer truly sucks. Yet somehow it the game is still the prettiest thing I've ever seen and plays at a decent rate)
- Fun and excellent story AND revolutionary (take everything that was good about HL and improve by a 10 times. then add heaps of cool stuff)
- Counter-Strike: Source. Just like CS only much shinier
- Oh so much more
In short, if you like games and you haven't bought this, then you are mentally disabled. if you don't like games but haven't bought this, then the above still applies. Buy it. Love it.
If it was possible I'd give this 42 stars out of 5. Can't wait for HL3
