In my opinion, the best game ever. sure, its not as exciting as having a horde of zombies run and attack you like in l4d2, but it has good graphics, good gameplay, really superb storyline, and really good AI and whatnot. many mods were created off of this game such as garrysmod and half life:riot act. most people compare it to halo 2 because they think that because they dont own one of them makes the one they do own the best. half life 2 also has a online deathmatch, called half life 2 deathmatch. the game starts off with the main charecter, gorden freeman, waking on a bus. he then goes around kicking things asses and then takes a stunstick to the face, then leading to him and alyx vance meeting. and then, to sum it up, a ton of storyline and shooting at aliens. im not going to tell you because you should have or be planning to own this game.
person one: did you get half life 2 yet?
person two: no.
gorden freeman: *proceeds to kick person two's ass.*
Unbelievably awesome game.
HL2 beats 700 shades of shite out of Halo 2.
a badass game for PC that has the best physics engine ever. i do wish that all of you jackasses would quit compairing it to halo 2. those two games are in completely seperate realms of each other. PC's and consoles are totally different. both games are great in their own right, but trying to compare the two is like saying that a certain book is better than a completely different movie. thats fucking retarded.
you can get it at walmart or anyplace that sells video games
Best damn game ever. Best storyline, best graphics, best physics, best...christ, best EVERYTHING.
Only people who play Magic: The Gathering hate HL2.
simply the god
of all and every game that has ever been made. for half life 2 brings shame
dude 1: dude u gat half life 2 yet?
dude 2: no, i just pass up the oppitunity to buy the greatest game of all time so i have more time to masterbate and make fun of the old and retarted.
dude 1: you shuld get it, it rules!
The best thing to happen to computers since the cd-rom drive!
"HL2 is un-fucking-believable!"
the absolute greatest thing ever thing ever to occur in cyberspace. the culmination and cultivation of years of work and sweat to build a machine that could play a game as beautiful as this. this is what the creators of the computer strived to create their machine to do. so that one day, a graphically stunning, amazing game could be played on it.
Preacher: ....and lastly, I thank God for Half Life 2.
What you first play Half Life 2 you are surprised at every turn. Its the enviroment, its the feeling that wow, this level looks like that place I drove past on our trip to LA. OMG i can use the gravity to pick up scanners and use em as buzzsaws, OMG the pulse rifle secondary fire vaporized that guy, OMG i just dropped that car on those zombies, killing them instantly, OMG i can roll nades into gun turret holes, OMG my crossbow bolt pinned the guy to the wall upside down by his leg, or OMG this blue gravity gun can pick up enemies and throw them at other enemies. I know I've played ravenholm about 3-4 times just cause its awesome killing zombies with the Gravity gun.
And look how far Half Life has come, people are still making mods for a 6 year old game. Imagine what they can do with the source engine!? Half Life 2 will last much longer than Halo2 and I bet Microsoft is trying to make Halo 3 as fast as possible so people don't lose intrest in the Halo series. Whereas Valve will take it's time because Half Life 2 isn't gonna lose intrest anytime soon.
Half Life 2 is too special to describe
