Om detta spel

1998. HALF-LIFE sänder chockvågor genom spelbranschen med sin kombination av pulserande action och en kontinuerlig, fängslande handling. Valves debutspel får mer än 50 priser för Årets spel och utses sedan till "Bästa PC-spelet någonsin" av PC Gamer. Det blir inledningen till en spelserie med över åtta miljoner sålda enheter runtom i världen.

NU. Half-Life 2 tar originalets spänning, utmaning och fysiska laddning, och tillsätter häpnadsväckande ny realism och lyhördhet. Spelet öppnar dörren för en värld där spelarens närvaro påverkar allt omkring honom, från den fysiska omgivningen till både vänners och fienders uppförande - till och med deras känslor.

Spelaren spelar återigen som forskaren Gordon Freeman. Han befinner sig på Jorden som tagits över av utomjordingar som roffar åt sig allt de kan. Planetens resurser är slut och befolkningen krymper. Freeman får det föga avundsvärda uppdraget att rädda världen från det onda han släppte lös på Black Mesa. Och en mängd personer han bryr sig om räknar med honom.

Den intensiva spelupplevelsen i realtid i Half-Life 2 är bara möjlig tack vare Source®, Valves nya grafikmotorteknik. Source ger stora förbättringar när det gäller:

  • Spelfigurer: Tack vare avancerade system för ansiktsanimering har de mest sofistikerade spelfigurerna någonsin skapats. Med 40 distinkta "ansiktsmuskler" uttrycker de mänskliga spelfigurerna alla mänskliga känslor och reagerar intelligent på spelarens rörelser.
  • Fysik: Allt från småsten till vatten och lastbilar på 2 ton reagerar som du förväntar dig, eftersom de lyder lagar som styr massa, friktion, tyngdkraft och bärkraft.
  • Grafik: Med Sources skuggbaserade renderingsfunktion, precis som den som användes av Pixar för att skapa filmer som Toy Story® och Monster's, Inc.®, skapas de vackraste och mest realistiska miljöerna någonsin i ett videospel.
  • AI: Varken vänner eller fiender rusar blint in i striderna. De kan utvärdera hot, navigera genom besvärlig terräng och använda vad som finns till hands som vapen.

Half Life 2 is one of these games that last. For the forseeable future, I think it should be played by any gamer, at least once. It reeks of quality and excellent storytelling. Its always fun to play HL2, the weapons are diverse, the characters are interesting,though the gameplay is that of your standard shooters, HL2 has a charm like no other. It truly is in a class of its own.

I played through Half-Life 2 a couple years ago and loved every minute of it. I can't really say anything new that someone didn't already say. This game is amazing- the gameplay, the atmosphere, the things you interact with is just awesome. One of the best FPS games ever made. If you haven't played Half-Life 2 you really need to buy it and play it. Also buy Half-Life: Episode One and Half-Life: Episode Two. 10/10

This is a truley great game featuring a great story of many of the sifi/nerdy things I love to the pure action and intensity of pure thrill and no escape from the combine each second.

A real epic classic. My first gameplay was on a old Xbox.. aah those days.

A masterpiece with more ambient feeling that you could ever ask for. If you love a good FPS shooter, then this is for you.

Now I know from where was that music cutscene intro with Mr. Valve everytime I launch a VALVe game. Sensational. It feels right in. 'Rise and shine, Mister Freeman. Rise and... shine' indeed. ;)

'Write a review for Half-Life 2' ah yeah great game! :xD.

Also, Laszlo, aka the finest mind of his generation(according to Sandy) recommends this game.

"Half Life 2 is the best game of human kind. It revolutionized the gaming industry and shaped human evolution. It was well thought out and had the best graphics of the centuary. This god of a game also features a no glitch system, and a nice community who doesnt hold people who dont like the game hostage and force them to write this statment."

*Note: At the time of this review I have only played Half-Life 1 and its expansions, along with the base game of Half-Life 2, which I am currently reviewing. I have yet to play the next two episodes that branch off from this game.

Overview
Half-Life 2 is hands down the best linearly crafted game I have ever played. Every aspect of this masterpiece has been perfected by the developers, and I really can't stress how well it all comes together. In this review I will go over Half-Life 2's graphics/performance, gameplay, story, and some closing thoughts in order to break down its flawlessness.

Wake up Mr. Freeman, wake up and smell the ashes.

Graphics/Performance
It may be just over a decade old, but Half-Life 2 is still a seriously beautiful game. From the textures to the physics, all was designed to the highest fidelity that could possibly be achieved in those times, and then some. The visuals were so ahead of their time in fact, it took another 3 years for any game to catch up to Half-Life 2's graphical prowess, which was the first Crysis game. I really can't see how anyone, even today, can truthfully say Half-Life 2 is outdated aesthetically speaking. Crank all the video settings to max, play in 1080p, easily get 60fps+ and you're in for a scenic experience through a wonderful game. Now, on with the performance. Much like all other games based on the source engine, Half-Life 2 runs with barely a single deficiency. The only problem that arose for me while playing through the games campaign was a recurring crash at a particular point in the chapter: "Follow Freeman!" I had a save about 10 seconds before the crash, and there was nothing I could do to prevent it from happening shortly after loading it. I ended up having to resort to a save from 10 minutes before, and upon arriving at that point in the game again, there was no crash. I really have no guess as to why the game was failing, other than maybe something specifically hectic that may have been going on at the time, which the games engine couldn't handle. Other than this small instance, the visuals and performance of Half-Life 2 are near faultless.

Gameplay
Much like the previous entry in the Half-Life franchise, the gameplay is what it's really all about. Whether you're shooting down the remnants of the Xen forces, overtaking the Combine, driving a scout car through the breathtaking coast, or commanding an army of Antlions, you're sure to have fun with whatever you're doing in Half-Life 2. Throughout the campaign you'll gather an arsenal of weapons in order to wage visceral and tactical combat against your foes. Due to this, there are plenty of ways to take down your adversaries. The game also shows it's variety in battle through the perfectly paced and skill-taxing boss battles. They always occur at just the right time to catch you off guard, and always really test you no matter the difficulty at which you play. The last great aspect of Half-Life 2's action happens near the end game when you get a squad of fighters to accompany you. There isn't all that much you can do command them other than telling them where they go, but they do offer more full-on warlike action in certain scenes of the game, rather than you being the sole warrior against an entire army. Other than combat, there's also a bit of puzzling and platforming to do, which is all done very well. This wall of text may not do it justice, but all considered the gameplay of Half-Life 2 is quite glorious.

Story
Half-Life 2 carries on the story of the original, with some genuinely confusing twists and turns. You are still Gordon Freeman, and have been reassigned to action by the mysterious G-Man to continue your fight to save humanity. Since Black Mesa you have become something of a hero to the human race, who are in dire need of one. Anywhere from 10-20 years after the original is when Half-Life 2 takes place, and since then Earth has been taken over by a masked race of aliens known only as the Combine. During this invasion, Gordon was still in the G-Man's purgatory, so we are unsure how it all went down. They have essentially enslaved humanity, and there is next to no hope left in the world. That is, until the return of Gordon Freeman. You'll meet up with a few characters shortly after the game begins, some of which you already know from the original game, and some of whom are new. What connects you all the most, however, is your ongoing effort to overthrow the Combine and regaining the Earth once again so that all humans can live freely. They are also all connected by being great characters, but that's beside the point. This may all sound somewhat spoilery, but all of what I've just described occurs in the first 30 minutes, so don't worry. To sum up, Half-Life 2 is a continuation of the already complicated original Half-Life, which just adds to the mind bending confusion and interesting narrative when all is said and done.

Final Thoughts
Half-Life 2 is a classic just like the original that came before it. Throughout the games 11-13 hour campaign, I've fallen even more madly in love with this series. I still have a little bit more content from Half-Life 2 to play via episode 1 and 2, but I now deeply fear the crushing depression that others have felt for years in wait of Half-Life 3. So Valve, do me a favor and announce it shortly after I complete episode 2, alright? This franchise is just ♥♥♥♥ing fantastic and we all deserve more. Now please, everyone who is even remotely entertained by the FPS genre, play this game if you somehow haven't already. I can't believe I allowed myself to be so late to the party. This game is truly pure gaming gold in every sense of the words.

John Freeman walked like speed of light back to his motorcycl and left behind the bad place behind him. John Freeman had to ride his motorcycle really fast back to the office but John Freemans gas ran out. John Freeman jumped fast off the motorcycle and landed on dead peoples hands.

"Gordon Freeman is now these hands... i must kill the next boss and live up to full-life consequences!" John Freeman said out loud.

John Freeman picked up a laser gun and aimed it at trees to see if he could. John Freeman shot and tree fell down in front of him. John Freeman seen eggs fall out of the tree and he put them back home safe.

"These birds dont have to see Gordon Freeman yet. its not time." John Freeman said to him.

John Freeman had to walked faster and was back at his office work and on a computer. He looked on the internet and found the next boss.

"I know his weakness now" John Freeman said. And after that he got emails from someone. John Freeman opened up the emails and read them.

"Dear John Freeman, how are you? I miss you at home come home safe and soon with Gordon Freeman for thanksgiving dinner. Love mom." John Freeman looked at it and got sad and yelled "I WILL KILL THE BOSS AND GORDON FREEMAN WILL BE HAPPY SOUL!" then he turned on off the computer and wet on the platform again down to his other more faster motorcycle that had gas in it this time.

John Freeman put the laser gun on his motorcycle and his machine gun and his rocket gun that he found on the side of the motorcycle. He went through traffic and went fast like litning to back to Ravenholm and back to the bad place where Gordon Freeman was. John Freeman went off road and did backflips and landed on back wheels but kept going too.

John Freeman went really fast again like before and was soon back again at Ravenholm but saw more zombie goasts. John Freeman said to them "Zombie goasts i have killed your friends at the old house and i dont want to shoot your heads. move near the countrysides and you will be friends of John Freeman." The zombie goasts said that "no we will kill you" and walked fast to John Freemans motorcycle. John Freeman waited until they were in front of his motorcycle and backflipped off his bars and shot heads below and landed and walked fast to where the next boss was.

"you will be one of us!" yelled the dead zombie goasts. John Freeman laughed and shot a rocket at them.

John Freeman saw the next boss far down the road and walked slow this time. He walked really slow like a turtle and sat down on a rock and watched the next boss near the dead last boss and where the place that Gordon Freeman was. The next boss was laughing at John Freeman so John Freeman said "YOU WILL NOT LAUGH AT ME!" and shot a rocket at him since that was his weakness.

The next boss died and John Freeman was happy. He walked over to the dead bosses and put them under the ground and planted pants on them so instead of messy dirt and dark there was pretty things there now to be happy.

John Freeman walked to where Gordon Freeman was lying dead and crushed from the next bosss feet and looked down. A tear droped out of John Freemans eye and landed on Gordon Freeman.

"You are dead bro and i killed the evil boss." John Freeman told Gordon Freeman

Then John Freeman saw something bad. A headcrab was on Gordon Freeman! Gordon Freeman standed up and said "John Freeman... you got here slow and now i am zombie goast. you will pay..."

to be continued...?

I still think this is the best FPS out there. It's single player, yes, but for many of us who enjoy a good story and mechanics over multiplayer features, this games, on this genre, has no equal. Gonna make this review short, as I don't think I can add much more to what is already known.
Graphics and AI are old, sure. But still looking great compared to some games nowadays. But the main focus of this review is the story behind the game. The lore. The map designs. Everything is so well done that you almost feel it's a movie and not a game. If you like FPS, this game is a must. My recommendation, however, is to first play HL1. Then get this one

I'm not very good at writing these reviews but i'll try.

Well personally I think it is a very good game but the only down point for me is that is isn't multiplayer. But I know why they didn't add multiplayer because it just isn't a multiplayer game. But all in all it is a very good game. Also it is intense and a bit disturbing at some bit's but very good. I hope you enjoy it when you get it and I hope this helped you to figure out what the game is like. Enjoy.
