I've stayed away from the Half Life series for a very long time, solely because I didn't even have a Steam account! But I recently bought Half Life: Source and Half Life 2, and I must say, they've already become some of my favourite games.

The formula in this game, although the game is 10 years old, still feels fresh to me, and feels like a new game. It's also one of the first games I've tried of this genre that I've actually enjoyed. The graphics are also fantastic for their age.

Well done Valve!

If you want to play Half-Life, just play the original Half-Life.

This is basically Half-Life with tons of gamebreaking bugs. Multiple skybox tear issues in various locations. The RPG Launcher doesn't work properly, it just will not hit any target beyond 3 metres as the rocket will just sail past them, forcing me to try to dodge a helicopter because there was no way I could destroy it, and also I had to turn on cheats to kill the final boss as it was unkillable without them as my rockets just will not hit it unless I ride right on top of the boss.

I know this almost goes without saying, but any gamer alive should play the Half-Life games. Even compared with the modern flashy big-budget single-player shooter extravaganzas of today (I'm looking at you, Far Cry and Bioshock), which are rightly heralded as amazing games, Half-Life makes your jaw drop at how amazing of an experience it is to fight throuth the crumbling Black Mesa facility battling humans and headcrabs alike. This game really makes you realize how much Jason Brody, Booker Dewitt, and every other major fps protagonist since owe the man with the crowbar, Gordon Freeman. If you are a sane human being who can play a video game, there is no excuse for you to not play Half-Life. None!
