For free, this tech demo is worth the few minutes it takes to run through it. Reminded me just how good Half-Life 2 was back in the day. Good memories - good times.

Lost Coast is a Half Life demo which lasts about 20 minutes. It's short, it's fun, and it's free if you buy Half Life 2, I think.

I played this game right after:
Half Life
Half Life: Opposing force
Half Life: Blue shift
Half Life 2
Half Life 2: Deathmatch

This one is really the shortest of the serie, I think it's like an additional level of Half Life 2. I don't think it deserve it's price but I bought the valve package during the summer sales so it came with it. I recommend it just because it follows the Half Life 2 story.

Pretty good education about the Source Engine, but if you're not interested in that kind of stuff, keep your money.

Lost Coast, this is one you can skip but I recommend this to anyone who has beat Half Life 2. It has no story basically. It's just an extra level for Half Life 2 and it has a commentary with Gabe Newell welcoming you to the level! 8/10

Although HDR updates have been an integral part of Half-Life 2 and its episodes, Lost Coast offers an interesting outlook on what decisions Valve had to make and their attempts at improving it.

Now I strongly advise you to not watch the "Video Test" before playing it as it's just a stroll around the level and will simply spoil everything for ya.

It is worth a shot (expect short, interesting encounters) but not worth buying Half-Life 2 for the sake of giving it a try. If you already have a copy of the game, then give it a go.
