Over dit spel

1998. HALF-LIFE veroorzaakt een schok in de gamewereld met de combinatie van denderende actie en een samenhangende, pakkende verhaallijn. De debuutgame van Valve wint meer dan vijftig game-of-the-year-awards, voordat het door PC Gamer wordt uitgeroepen tot 'Best PC Game Ever'. Over de hele wereld worden meer dan acht miljoen licenties verkocht.

NU. Door de spanning, de uitdaging en de bloedstollende lading van het origineel te nemen en daar een verbijsterend nieuw realisme en adembenemende reactiesnelheid aan toe te voegen, opent Half-Life 2 de deur naar een wereld waarin de aanwezigheid van de speler invloed heeft op elk facet van de omringende werkelijkheid, van de fysieke omgeving tot de gedragingen en zelfs de emoties van vriend en vijand.

Opnieuw neemt de speler de wapens op in de huid van onderzoekswetenschapper Gordon Freeman, die wordt geconfronteerd met een wereld die door buitenaardse wezens is kaalgeplunderd en waarvan de grondstoffen zijn uitgeput en het bevolkingsaantal dramatisch is geslonken. Freeman krijgt de weinig benijdenswaardige rol opgedrongen de wereld te redden van het kwaad dat hij in Black Mesa heeft ontketend. En veel mensen om wie hij geeft, rekenen op hem.

De intense, realtimespeelervaring van Half-Life 2 is alleen mogelijk dankzij Source®, de nieuwe, eigen enginetechnologie van Valve. Source zorgt voor verbluffende verbeteringen van:

  • Personages: het geavanceerde systeem voor gezichtsanimatie staat garant voor de meest geraffineerde spelpersonages die je maar kunt bedenken. Met de veertig afzonderlijke 'gezichtsspieren' van de menselijke personages wordt het volledige scala aan menselijke emoties weerspiegeld en reageert de speler vloeiend en intelligent.
  • Fysica: van steentjes in het water tot trucks van twee ton zijn de reacties zoals verwacht, omdat ze de wetten van massa, wrijving, zwaartekracht en opwaartse druk gehoorzamen.
  • Graphics: het weergavemechanisme van Source is gebaseerd op de verduisteringstechnieken die ook Pixar gebruikte in films als Toy Story® en Monster's, Inc.®. Daardoor is de omgeving mooier en realistischer dan je ooit in een videospel hebt gezien.
  • AI (kunstmatige intelligentie): geen enkele vriend of vijand stort zich blindelings in een gevecht. Ze kunnen bedreigingen op waarde schatten, navigeren door moeilijk begaanbaar terrein en wapens fabriceren van wat er aan materiaal voorhanden is.

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.

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?!?!?!

Ranked the #3 game of all time by watchmojo.com and the #1 game of the sixth generation as well, this formerly revolutionary game still feels fresh and exciting even on your twentieth replay or your first playthrough, this is a game that can compete with any modern game and come out on top.

"Wake up,Gordon Freeman"- G-man
Half-Life 2 is the sequel to Half-Life,the game by Valve that pretty much wrote the rules for FPSs way back in 1998.
I haven't played very much of this game myself,but I can guarantee that anyone who plays it will end up loving this game,even those that didn't play HL1 before playing this game(like me).

The plot: Gordon Freeman is brought out of stasis by the G-Man,who inserts him in a train arriving at the fictitous City 17,which was taken over by Combine forces. He eludes the Combine forces and meets Alyx and Barney,and joins the Lambda Resistance. He gets to Dr. Kleiner's lab and assists them in attempting to get a teleporter to teleport him and Alyx to Dr. Eli Vance's lab. The teleportation fails,and he goes through City 17 on foot to get to Eli's lab. He arrives at Black Mesa East and meets up with Eli, where he is captured and taken to a combine prison,Nova Prospekt. Gordon goes through a zombie infested town named Ravenholm and is given a Dune Buggy,which he uses to travel to Nova Prospekt. Eli,Alyx,and Gordon escape,the combine teleporter they used exploding in the process. Gordon and Alyx learn they were in a "slow teleport"during which a week has passed. In their absence,the Resistance mobilized against the combine, turning City 17 into a battleground. Alyx is captured by the Combine and taken to the Citadel,with Gordon,aided by Barney and D0g,goes to the Citadel. He gets caught in a Combine"confiscation chamber",which destroys all of his weapons except for the Gravity Gun,the energy enhancing it's capabilities and turning it into a superior weapon. He is tcaptured riding in a Combine transport pod and is taken to Dr. Breen's office,where he is holding Eli and Alyx captive. Breen explains his plans for further conquest of the humans by the Combine. Breen tries to escape through a portal,but Gordon destroys the portal reactor with the super-charged Gravity Gun. Breen is annihilated in the resulting explosion,but just before Gordon and Alyx get killed,time is frozen,and the G-Man appears,praising Gordon for his actions in City 17 and the Citadel,and puts Gordon back into stasis.

The characters are pretty cool,even if some of the characters can tend to be annoying*looks at Barney*

The music is pretty cool,tho the game mostly relies on ambiance.

The weapons are pretty good,just really your standard FPS weapons,except the Gravity Gun is added,which lets you move almost any object at will. Heck,you get a crowbar also x) :)

This is an amazing game overall,it seriously deserves the critical acclaim that it's gotten,and I HIGHLY recommend this game,even to those that haven't played Half-Life before,it's def worth the 10 bucks
10/10 from me :)
