Half-Life 2: Lost Coast is an amazing game , its a short game to show the dynamic feature of the source engine .
Its not only short but great , fast and you need to use your brain sometime.
But mainly this game is the most unplayed game on steam , i was like whaaat ? are you serious , ok i accept the fact that its a short game and you need half life complete to get it no other way, but still who dont like half life ? Everyone love it so please install the game beacuse i know you have the game in you library its only 400 mb thats nothing :)
I hope you enjoy my review , i enjoyed the game even only for 0.2 hours

Pros:
-Story
-Fisherman
-Boss Battle
-All weapons
- its half life duuh

Cons:
-You need Half Life Complete to play it grab it now its only 9,24 euro
- Too much ennemy and i would like to admire the little village

Half-Life 2: Lost Coast came bundled with Counter-Strike: Source. It is not worth buying this game seperately because it only has about an hour worth of gameplay, but if you get it in a bundle, it's worth 1 hour of your time.

This is by far, one of the greatest games ever made. The storyline is insanely touching, I cried a few times. Half-Life 2: Lost Coast is an incredible, high quality game, that will make you want to shed some tears. I highly recommend you playing this game, however if you do play this game, you will need a box of tissues, because once you hear the voice of our lord and saviour, lord GabeN you will cry. I love this game. 15/10

Half-Life 2: Lost Coast is a sweet little chapter removed during the development of Half-Life 2, and now used to showcase the HDR rendering in Valve's Source Engine.

Playing it while hearing the developers commentaries is a really interesting experience, for those who want to know a little from "Behind the Scenes".

(When you buy Half-Life 2, this game is included with it.)

Just a showcase.
Developer commentary in place if you want to listen the employees of Vavle speak about how they made the one level and some other stuff about new mechanics.
Other than that, it's a nice little gameplay.

the graphics in this game are the best I have ever seen. It is beautiful in every way and if its graphics were combined with a good story it would be extremely immersive. It made me feel like I was the character. The weapon draw time is perfect and it looks as if youre actually taking a gun out from its sling. The gun mechanics are perfected without a flaw, when you are either shooting or reloading, its movement and sound are as convincing as a real gun. And the lighting and reflection make it seem as if it were real life. I would not recommend spending the $40 as its more of a demomstration and explanation of HDR rather than a story. But if its on sale i would highly recommend purchasing it because it will be very enjoyable and will definetely spark a conversation.

Best game ever, I loved the part where you talk to the fisherman. You become so attached to him, its hard to let this game go.

A short tech demo with deleted content from Half-Life 2. It's free so you may consider checking it out but there is not much to it. You should beat it in one sitting, hopefully.

This is just Valve showing off the impressive ability of the source engine and how it can offer high quality graphics that function on basic computers. This is worth your time if you enjoy your half life series and have a spare 20 minutes in your glorious life full of exploring and meeting people. 10/10

Pretty much pointless addition to our Steam library. It is just one mission that showed a new graphics feature for that time. Less than 30 mins of play. Leaves you wanting more and wondering why is this featured as a separate game.

Yeah, I've got this game in a bundle, but it's not all that great. I mean, the graphics are pretty cool for a 2005 game but that's about it. So for the love of God PLEASE don't buy this game for it's full price of 40 bucks.

A quick graphical demonstration of what might be the first steps of Source 2. If you're looking for another Half Life game, that is not what this game is. The game does not include storyline of any sort but does contain some puzzle and action. A short 15 minute game at the most. I do not reccommend buying this game unless it is in a bundle. The game is way to expensive for what it is. If you haven't played any Half Life games or haven't finished one of them yet, don't worry, the game does not spoil anything for you. I only do not reccomend this because of the pricing. Thanks for reading!

A tech demo should not be FOURTY DOLLARS.



...That money should be spent on hats for TF2.
