I do love Half-Life but not for the Music. The music to me was Pretty Decent, They would all fit in the moment And i guess this is great for it being free.

But it did cost money i wouldnt recommend it.

This soundtrack is amazing. This and Undertale's soundtracks are an example of how games can have amazing music.


Remember: This game is from 2004....I've yet to meet one that can outmatch it...

More of a sountrack than the one for the original Half-Life, but you can definitely hear the resemblances. These tracks are as mysterious as the game, meaning very strong connections between the atmospheres and the music. The Half-Life 2 sountrack still include these short bits of noise much similar to Half-Life 1's, but in between every other track there's a "genuine" song.

I have probably played Half-Life 2 a bit too much but tracks like "CP Violation" just screems running from Combine Metrocops after just arriving at City 17. Probably because that's the exact scene when this song plays. This soundtrack is so hard to review alone, without thinking about the game. That's the thing innit, you can't just take Half-Life 2's music apart from the game, that ruins everything. I know it can be said with all soundtracks, that's why they are there.

It's the sountrack of The. Best. Game. Ever. It contributes to so much of what made the game so epic.

Ever since Steam Music beta launched I have actively listened to my favorite sountracks, including Valve's originals. Here are some favorites from Half-Life 2 and the Episodes (not going to make individual reviews for them):

Composer: Kelly Bailey

Half-Life 2:
1. "Hazardous Environments"
2. "CP Violation"
8. "Revenholm Reprise"
11. "Slow Light"
12. "Apprehension and Evasion"
15. "Miscount Detected"
17. "Triage at Dawn" (Oh Half-Life 3, where are you?)
23. "Kaon"
24. "You're Not Supposed to Be Here"
26. "Hard Fought"
28. "Shadows Fore and Aft"
32. "Black Mesa Inbound"
34. "Tracking Device"
39. "Tau-9"

Episode 1:
3. "Guard Down"
5. "Self Destruction"
10. "Penultimatum"

Episode 2:
5. "Vortal Combat"
6. "Sector Sweep"
9. "Abandoned in Place"
11. "Hunting Party"
12. "Eon Trap"

Steam downloads game soundtracks to a separate folder in your game's Steamapps directory. You can right-click on a game in your Steam Library, select Properties>Local Files and click Browse Local Files to access that game's directory.


More intense than Half-Life's soundtrack, but arguably more iconic. This music takes its rightful place alongside the game it's in as truly classic. This isn't all of the music from the game, though, and some of it is indeed reused from the original game. However, this is undoubtedly the easiest way to get most of it for yourself.

Personally, I'm very glad Valve decided to release the music for the Half-Life and Portal games for free with any purchases of the games themselves.

Great tracks that really fit with whatever situation you might be in while playing Half Life 2. Oh and it's free as well!
Personal favorites are: CP Violation, Apprehension and Evasion, Triage at Dawn and Something Secret Steers Us

Happy 10th anniversary Half Life 2!

One of the best video game soundtracks in history! Really makes the game one of the best out there in terms of making the player feel immersed in the game's atmosphere, and adds a different feeling( action, isolation, discovery) depending on the location the player is involved in within the game.

For those of you who don't know how to open this (instead stop spamming in reviews 'omg i can't open it, sucks.'):
-------------------------------------------------------
Computer > [disk where you've installed HL2] > Steam > SteamApps > common > Half-Life 2 > Soundtrack > Half-Life 2 - Soundtrack
-------------------------------------------------------
There you go, over 40 songs (~1 hour long) from dis awesoem game.

EDIT: HL2 is required or else you won't find it (like nobody knows, its a DLC...).
EDIT2: That's how it works on Windows, i have no idea how to find it on Mac, since... i am... Windows user, ya know... >_>
