Half-Life 2: Lost Coast is some kind of show-case made by Valve to introduce their new High Dynamic Range method of applying light inside the Source Engine. Actually, although this is a very technical subject, the developer's commentary that comes with it, is more than worthwhile listening to. It gives quite some insight into how this mini-level was constructed, and even into how HDR lighting actually works. It's not easy to talk about something as complex as this is an easily understandable manner. Fascinating stuff, and for the die-hard Vavle-fans: you even get Gabe Newell's words at the beginning of the commentary ;-).

After playing it through for a second time recently - after having left it aside for over five years - I felt amazed by how lively most of the graphics and - of course - the lighting still look today - a full nine (!!!) years after this level was published. Especially the little Byzantine church, part of the monastery on top of the cliffs, still feels amazing and oozes atmosphere. Valve did a wonderful job with the lighting inside the church, even letting dimmed light through the stained-glass windows. At the same time, it also made me a bit sad, because, well, how long has it been since we got the latest Half-Life content? Oh well, who knows....

Since this one comes for free in the Orange Box and the Half Life 2-complete package, I guess most of you who played Half-Life 2 at some point, have this in your game collection. If you haven't tried it yet, by all means do so, but be advised: it's very good, but also very short ;-).

Overall rating: 8/10

This really isn't much of a game, but more of a tech demo. This little gem includes most elements found in its complete game, Half-Life 2. Originally planned as a section of the Highway 17 chapter of Half-Life 2, this unused concept was scrapped, possibly due to time constraints or maybe boiled down to the fact that it is a prototype all on its own.

This demo details various visual and graphic capabilities that are found in that said complete game. All the while, this ''game'' just shows how immensly strong the Source engine is, considering it was pretty new for its time and how it would become the most essential game engine to date, what with various Valve and 3rd party games being built on top of this incredible engine. The most clear concept that is shown off is the high dynamic range lightning that is now most commonly used in Valve's games.

There isn't much of a story or a narrative in this demo, other than you're none other than Gordon Freeman, who is stranded on a lost coastal cliff (The clue is in the title) that you must climb up to destroy a Combine artillery launcher in a monastery, which is rebelling and attacking a nearby town. Though this is just one massive chunk of a technological demonstration, it has several story elements that didn't make the cut in the final game. As a result, this level received a good response from the community, as if the fans haven't been missing anything at all.

While I would say, this game is very interesting if you love to dig down and unearth various unused game content and maybe discover a little of the history that had been closed.

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.

For you who are wondering, it's not a game. It's more of a demo to show off how pretty everything is. And everything sure is pretty. The gameplay itself is nothing incredible, just shoot few combines, shoot a heli and done.
So yeah, you should play it for the pretty graphics, not the gameplay.

The exciting sequel to Telltale Interactive's smash hit "System Shock", you take the role of Morgan Freeman in a heart-wrenching tale of love, life, and family.

This is a 20 minute long half-life game designed to show how realistic scenes can be made. It includes commentaries that explain valves level-making tactics and strategies. The game also includes a video stress test, which is nice.

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 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.)

Okay, Im going to stay away from my traditional reviews and just put out a short one. First of all, THIS IS NOT A GAME!!! It is a tech demo released by Valve to showcase the amazing graphics and lighting that the legendary Source engine has to offer. "But it is a game because I can play it and stuff like that" (says everyone who doesn't know how this works) Now, although you "can play it and stuff like that," it is still Valve's way of showing you their hard work.
Originally planned as a level in the Highway 17 chapter of Half-Life 2, it was then put out as a standalone game...I mean tech demo that, in my opinion, isn't worth $39.99.
This "game" only takes about 15-20 minutes to complete. You start off on some beach with no context at all, and I mean NONE. You meet a fisherman and he says that you have to destroy the combine's "weapon". He grants you access to where they are patrolling and you have to fight your way to a church. This is where the tech demo shows it's true purpose. You will be greeted with a fascinating sight as this "game" shows you amazing lighting and visuals. If I would be rating this game on it's graphics, it would be a 10/10.
After you kill a couple more combine and shoot down a hunter chopper, you take a lift back down to the fisherman. Sadly, that's where the tech demo ends.
I would recommend buying The Orange Box (which is how I got it) or buying the Half-Life Complete Pack. Like I said before, the tech demo doesn't seem worth $39.99.
Overall the "game" is great. And if Valve is reading this, a price drop would be greatly appreciated. The final verdict for this tech demo is an 8/10

Do I recommend this game?

That depends: do I like playing showcases of things and not actual games?
