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.

Gordon Freeman.
Gordon Freeman has the letter 'G' in it.
Do you know what else has the letter 'G' in it?
Thats right.
The galapagos penguin.
The galapagos penguin is a bird.
Do you know what else is a bird?
Thats right.
The chuck Will's widow
But what do birds have to do with Half Life, you say.
Lets find out!
So far we mentioned 2 birds.
The word ''two'' contains 3 letters.
The word ''letters'' contains 2 letters 'T'
2 + 3 - 2 = 3

We remember the Freeman. We are coterminous. There is no distance between us. No false veils of time or space may intervene. We see you still in Black Mesa. Clearly we see you in the Nihilanth's chamber. We bear witness to the bright eternity of the Nihilanth's demise. You leap, you fall, we see you flash between the barriers. We are there still, in observance of your final stroke. While our own lay scattered at your feet, you severed the vortal cord that bound the Nihilanth to life, and to us. That sharp spur of hope has not dulled to this day. For once the lesser master lay defeated, we knew the greater must also fall in time.

For a brief time you joined with us. You are one. Between the worlds. Communion of the Vortessence. And that other: a deeper mystery. No deeper than the void itself. We cannot forget those whose cords you cut. Forgiveness is not ours to bestow. Unity of purpose, the shattering of common shackles, a single road we tread. Your song we sing and shall sing for eternity. No matter the consequences of this struggle. You have brought us grief and jubilation beyond measure. With you beside us, a talisman of victory, the day of freedom draws nigh.

Your bright face obscures your darker mask. We call you sib, although your mind and meaning are a mystery to us. Far distant eyes look out through yours. Something secret steers us both. We shall not name it. We have endured these chafing bonds for eons, yet a single moment of further servitude seems intolerable! How often have we slipped our yoke, only to find it choking us again. Let this war end in either total victory or our extinction. No further compromise shall we allow. We take our stand beside you, here, upon this miserable rock.

The way ahead is dark for the moment. What seems to you a sacrifice is merely, to us, an oscillation. We do not fear the interval of darkness. We are a tapestry woven of Vortessence. It is the same for you if only you would see it. How many are there in you? Whose hopes and dreams do you encompass? Could you but see the eyes inside your own, the minds in your mind, you would see how much we share.

We are you, Freeman. And you are us.

TL:DR? See Conclusion

INTRODUCTION:
Half-Life 2 is a first-person shooter game developed and published by Valve Software (Corporation) and is a sequel to the extremely popular and revolutionary 1999 game Half-Life. Half-Life 2 was originally released back in 2004 and was then boasting the newly developed, highly flexible and powerful Source Engine, it then became an instant classic by making good use of new technology, excellent storytelling, gameplay mechanics and an unrivaled online experience. Alongside its predecessor, both games left a lasting impression, particularly on the FPS genre, as an industry standard for future FPS games to come.

Half-Life 2 puts the player once more behind the thick-framed bulletproof glasses of Gordon Freeman, an MIT Graduate of Theoretical Physics with an uncanny ability to wield military hardware and the person indirectly responsible for opening a portal to an alien world and exposing Earth to an invasion that is to be known as the 'Black Mesa Incident'. Half-Life 2 is set 20 years after the events of Half-Life 1 and the world is now under the full control of the 'Combine', an interdimensional empire that is currently harvesting the natural resources of Earth including the human race which is now close to extinction.

Enter City 17 and step once more into the HEV Suit and discover a dystopian future where the only hope of humanity is a small pocket of resistance that refuses to bow down to the Combine rule. Meet old friends as well as establish new ones, explore a vast post-apocalyptic world, fight through impossible odds and stand as the last orange beacon of hope for humanities stand against extinction.

PROS:
+ Graphics and artstyle that looks just as good as it is now (2015), as it was eleven years ago (2004).
+ Excellent sequel with an excellent story that expands the Half-Life Universe
+ Excellent memorable supporting characters such as Alyx Vance
+ Great sound quality, facial animation, and voice acting adds to the immersive experience
+ Excellent enemy AI
+ Great level and environment designs but...(see CON #1)
+ Fun gunplay and gameplay mechanics
+ Good selection of weapons and equipment with very creative special abilities (Gravity Gun)
+ Atmospheric with excellent use of lighting, sound effects and environment design
+ Challenging difficulties
+ Expanded levels that give some room for exploration, but doesn't destroy the narrative storytelling
+ Lengthy game time
+ Very affordable price (though I highly recommend the Half-Life Complete pack)
+ Multiplayer is still active as far as I can tell
+ Tons of available mods that expand player experience

CONS:
- Driving section may be a little too long but it does offer a few 'stops' where the player can stretch his leg muscles and trigger finger.
- The Squad Support AI is down right suicidal with no command to tell them to stay in place for more than 15 seconds before they follow you again. (This is annoying specially if you're trying to keep them alive against particularly deadly opponents such as Striders)
- Rag-doll physics engine can be unrealistically (albeit hilariously) glitchy
- No Steam Workshop Support for the multitude of MODS that are available.

CONCLUSION:
Much like its predecessor, Half-Life 2 is a MASTERPIECE of a game and is a MUST BUY and MUST OWN for any fan of the first person genre because how else can you describe a game that is almost 11 years old, yet, can still retain all the fun and excitement of a recently released title.

Half-Life 2's use of the amazing Source engine reflects on the fact that this game's graphics, despite showing some age, still manages not only to look good, but also to look authentic and atmospheric with its excellent use of sound and music that makes the environment feel alive. Graphics aside, the gameplay has survived for even after a decade and has still not lost its charm. The enemy AI provides an imposing challenge while gunplay and the creative weapons creates one of the most fun and immersive experience you can get on a first-person shooter. Storywise, the Half-Life universe can be considered as one of the most beautifully crafted worlds in gaming history. Half-Life 2 fully emphasizes this point with its amazing and memorable supporting characters that can establish a connection with the player on an emotional level. To recap, Half-Life 2 is the game that once again redefined how modern first-person shooters will be made in the future and remains as the benchmark for good single player FPS gaming experience.

If you decide to purchase and try this game, I do recommend you purchase Half-Life: Complete so you may also avail of the two Episodes that was subsequently released.
