Om dette spil

1998. HALF-LIFE sender chokbølger igennem spilbranchen med sin kombination af hamrende action og kontinuerlig, fordybende historiefortælling. Valves debuttitel vinder over 50 priser for årets spil på vejen mod udnævnelsen som "Bedste pc-spil nogensinde" af PC Gamer og sætter gang i en franchise med over otte millioner solgte enheder på verdensplan.

NU. Ved at tage spændingen, udfordringen og den instinktive energi fra originalen og tilføje imponerende ny realisme og dynamik åbner Half-Life 2 døren til en verden, hvor spillerens tilstedeværelse påvirker alt i de umiddelbare omgivelser, fra det fysiske miljø til både venners og fjenders opførsel og følelser.

Spilleren samler igen det koben op, der tilhører videnskabsmanden Gordon Freeman, som befinder sig på en Jord, der er overrendt af rumvæsner og ved at blive plukket til skindet, mens dens ressourcer opbruges, og dens befolkningstal daler. Freeman kastes ind i den uheldige rolle at skulle frelse verden fra det onde, han slap løs i Black Mesa. Og der er mange af de mennesker, han holder af, der stoler på ham.

Det intense realtids-gameplay i Half-Life 2 muliggøres udelukkende af Source®, Valves nye egenudviklede spilmotorteknologi. Source byder på store forbedringer inden for:

  • Figurer: Det avancerede ansigtsanimationssystem skaber de mest avancerede spilfigurer nogensinde. Med 40 individuelle "ansigtsmuskler" kan menneskelige figurer formidle hele det menneskelige følelsesregister og reagere på spilleren med dynamik og intelligens.
  • Fysik: Alt lige fra småsten til vand til 2-tons lastbiler reagerer som forventet, idet de overholder fysikkens love med hensyn til masse, friktion, tyngdekraft og opdrift.
  • Grafik: Sources shader-baserede renderer - som den, der blev brugt hos Pixar til at skabe film som Toy Story® og Monsters, Inc.® - gengiver de smukkeste og mest realistiske miljøer, der nogensinde er set i et videospil.
  • AI: Hverken venner eller fjender kaster sig hovedkulds ud i kampen. De kan analysere trusler, bevæge sig i vanskeligt terræn og fremstille våben af forhåndenværende genstande.

Classic shooter nearly ten years old

It might seem weird to dedicate a review to a game that came out on november 16th, 2004. Still, Half-Life 2 is no "ordinary" game. Even before it's release, it was the most talked about, and surely most anticipated game up till then. Back in 2004, Valve was still primarily a game-developer, Steam had only just been launched in order to streamline the updating-process for the Valve-games (quite an original and ground-breaking idea since back in those day patching one's game could easily turn into a hazardous adventure). Immediately after its release, Half-Life 2 was loaded with critical praise, and almost instantly rose to the top of all lists defining the best games ever. And even today, after ten years, it still tops a lot of those lists.

I played it for the first time only five years ago, messing around with the original Half-Life up till then. Five years ago, the game struck me as still very good-looking and a blast to play, even being five years old. Quite recently I picked it up again, to be honest in the first place to get some of the achievements I had missed during my first play-through (I only got really interested in the Steam achievements this year). To my surprise, the game immediately got back under my skin, so I decided to give it another play-through, and I enjoyed it immensely, hence this review.

Of course the Source Engine shows its age: up-close textures get quite blurry, but the wider vistas are still amazingly "alife", and the colours and general atmosphere are still exciting. The physics engine - a novelty back then - now surely feels outdated, even crappy, but playing around with the famous "gravity gun" makes more than up for this, and surely has its funny moments. But in every other respect, this game is a classic and a masterpiece in the true sense of the word. The story is so convincingly told, that I felt myself beeing "Doctor Freeman" again, already during the first chapter (which introduces the gameworld in a really genial way which has not been surpassed ever since). The level-design is simply awesome. Compared to modern-day shooters, the interface and the amount of information about the surroundings you get as a player, are minimal. There is no minimap, there are no waypoints, there is no compass, there is no large-scale map. And still, I never ever got lost, thanks to the downright genial way the levels are designed. Still, the amount of freedom you get is great: there are tons of hidden places, byways, or larger spaces to explore, besides the more traditional corridors, but they always manage to lead you in a logical way. This game offers the classic examples on how levels can be optimally designed.

Sound, too, is amazing: there is not much in-game music, but when it appears (mostly in the action-packed scenes), it really delivers to the full. Sounds from the guns, NPC's and ambient sounds are extremely convincing. But what still shines most of all is the actual gameplay and the way this games is "paced". Sneaky, almost stealth-like scenes alternate with extremely violent action-moments, in a very, very clever way, only to be alternated with puzzles and other moments where thinking is required. The choice of the right gun at the right time is essential, and very rewarding. There is a lot of interaction with other characters, but never up till the point where this gets tedious. And best of all: there are countless moments of surprise, when the story takes a turn for the unexpected. So, yes, this is still a classic, and yes, it's still up there among the best games ever (although I personally would grant it a top-five place or so, the top-three spots taken by more recent "classics").

For my scorings, I give them as I conceived the game during my actual playthrough, so not taking into account it's a ten year old game.

Gameplay: 27/30 (there are some frustrating puzzles and some weird moments with the gravity-gun buteverything else is genius)
Grahics: 15/20 (the outer vistas are great, the rest is showing its age)
Sound: 9/10
Longelivety: 8/10 (no multiplayer, but the game has tons of singleplayer gameplay)
Steam integration: 10/10 (it comes with trading cards and 23 achievements, most of which really add something to game, if only to explore different ways to achieve things - the way achievements should work imo)
Technical: 9/10 (runs very smoothly and I got no crashes, but sometimes hangs for a couple of seconds on loading screens)
Personal appreciation: 10/10

Overall: 88/100

Im aware this is probably the most reviewed game on Steam, making my own take on this game quite redundant (is there anyone with a unique opinion of HL2, not shared by anyone else? Doubt it).
However, i noticed the two best games i got on Steam that i havent reviewed yet happen to be the 2 best FPS's of all time, so here's the first review of the two:

Half Life 2 is the role-model for all FPS games ever made:
It "only" has a singleplayer campaign, but its so well done it doesnt need anything else.
- Graphics-wise, know this: it's a 2004 game, i played it on 2010 and not once did i feel they were outdated (then again, im not one of those who care a lot about technical aspects)
- Sounds... this is not a type of game where this aspect is very relevant, so i cant recall anything about it really
- The Story, even though its not the most original or filled with amazing plot twists, it is still compelling and engaging, making you care about its great characters and what happens next
- Gameplay, there's where this game excels. From the now-classic 'no cutscenes / always in control', to the incredible variety of scenarios in each level, each with its own tone and pace, and jam-packed with (this is my favourite aspect of the game...) UNFORGETTABLE MOMENTS - seriously, i can recall more than 10 scenes that i'll probably never forget about this game.
The weapons are also great, in quantity, diversity and in the fun-factor. The enemies too are varied enough and provide a reasonable challenge (though an higher difficulty level would be great).
- The length of the game is also one of the best / longest i've seen in an FPS, though it provides little replay value once finished.

Conclusion: Must-play for any gamer out there, to experience a landmark in videogame history, proving again that Valve knows how to make Greatness. Note: Episode 1 and 2 equally recommended to continue the Awesomeness!

*****
5 out of 5

Half Life 3 now, please.

What to say about Half Life 2? If I could even explain a fraction of my adoration of this game...it would probably overwhelm you. This game is one of a kind. Taking everything good from the FPS genre and gaming in general, Half Life 2 is a feat I can't fathom.

The gameplay is slick, the sound is platinum album status, the characters will stay with you, and the storyline will grip you. If you haven't already bought this game whilst I've been talking, why haven't you?!?!?!

Half-Life 2: What does it have to offer?

Let's see: We get a Crowbar, Unique Enemies, Amazing Story, Crowbar, Funny Sayings, Boxes, Crowbar, Crowbar, Head Humpers, Crowbar, Amazing scenery, Good "Supportive" Characters, Crowbar, the Mysterious G-Man, Crowbar, and above all: A huge cliff hanger.

I really do recommend this game. It's fun, it's elusive, thought-boggiling, action-y, unique, and above all: Crowbar Approved. 8.5/10, amazing game, really love it. Thanks for reading this.

So wake up Mr. Freeman - Wake up and smell the ashes...

Fresh install again for HL2, such an Epic game for single player. The layout of this game is tremendous diverse locations and fun firefights. For many, including myself getting this game meant - getting STEAM? - what was it, how will it work and such. At the time Steam was a bit buggy and had some issues but that was 10+ years ago and look at it now... its come a long way. Half Life for me is almost like a bad habit I keep going back to after 16 years of playing HL and 10 years of HL2 I always go back for another run - because there fun! Why are they fun - its a unique world, decent graphics (top of the line when released), awesome game play, good AI, Killer music and soundtracks, fun characters and the MOD options.

My favorite levels in the game are Nova Prospect & Ravenholm... 2 fantastic levels. Headcrab zombies and poison crabs - suck especially the poison crabs they make my hair stand up and the sound they make - (girly scream).

I am all about Half Life again after my mini rant earlier in the week and the somewhat troublesome news from Valve regarding HL3 - please see the rant in the activity feed.

VALVE CAN NEVER LET THIS GAME END WITH OUT A PROPER FOLLOW UP AND EXPLANATION OF THE MANY LOOSE ENDS AND MY PERSONAL FAVORITE QUESTION - JUST WHO EXACTLY IS THE GMAN AND WHY IS HE PORTRAYED THE WAY HE IS?

Recommended game if your the one person out there that has not played it yet, lol.

What can we say anymore ? This is Half Life 2, this is legendary product of pc gaming. Awesome story and characters, better than a lot of action and future science movies, you can be sure. I think this game beginning for everything in game industry again. After ten years still playable and enjoyable. Also don't forget to play Episode One and Two. Absolutely 10/10.

You see I never liked rhino's, but that's ok cause this game doesn't have them.

So when you start the game you are greeted with sexual sounds of raviolli and meatballs, made by famous chef, Adolf Hitler. But sadly you don't get to enjoy these banana's because then general mc♥♥♥♥face puts you on a train with Morgan Freeman, btw it's not really Tim Alan. You are then told it's safer here, and the main character, Master Chief, says "What can you tell me about the reapers?" So as you make your way through the holocaust, I mean train station you meet your old friend Barney the zebra, and he tells you to piss off and get a real job. And that's when my power cut out because I didn't pay the electric bill. I then proceeded to get a job at Mcdolan's, and hated every single moment of it. The end.

This game gets 7/Charmander at best.
