Half-Life 2: Episode One 1 was released a bit over 8 years ago, as the even then long-awaited expansion of the original, critically widely acclaimed game. Since it is part of the Orange Box, the Half-Life 2 Complete Edition and the Valve Complete Edition, chances are great you already own and have played the original Half-Life 2.
The good news: Episode 1 continues on the high level of level design and gameplay the original had set. There is however an important shift in focus, as the greater part of the game is played alongside Alyx, Gordon's female companion-in-arms. Alyx happily stands her own against the enemy hordes and doesn't need any sort of "babysitting" games wtih less well developed AI sometimes call for. She's been updated graphically as well (looking even better ;-)) since Episode 1 makes use of the High Dynamic Range lighting effects first tried out by Valve in Half-Life 2: Lost Coast. However, compared to that playable tech-demo, environments in Episode 1 are a bit disappointing and don't always offer the best opportunities for the upgraded engine to shine. There are no wide-open vistas, and although the opening level in the Citadel is impressive, it also has a sort of repetitiveness that comes to the fore now and then.

On the other hand, gameplay-wise everything is as top-notch as it was in the original game, and the fact that you play alongside Alyx offers some interesting opportunities. There's even a Steam Achievement called "One Bullet" which gets unlocked by playing through the entire game (!!) using one single bullet. The rest of the kills/actions has to be made by using the Gravity Gun, which gets an upgrade during the early part of the game. This calls for clever thinking, and I tried to get it, only to find myself missing the shooting action after a couple of hours ;-).

All in all, Episode 1 is a good to very good expansion, continuing the story of the original game in a logical and interesting way. There's no reason at all not to give it a shot (...) when you've played the original Half-Life 2.

Overall rating: 8/10

Well, First of all, I am very surprised that you are actually going to read a review to buy this awesome Game. I bet you already know this is an installement for the Ledgendary game 'Half Life 2' So why bother reading a review? But if you still want to continue reading, Then be my guest.

Back to the review.
This is an AWESOME Game for a Game that has been released in the Year 2006 (June 1, 2006 to be precise, Oh, And By The Way, My Birthday is on June 29th!) And yet, It still is. If you have Half Life 2 and dont have EP1, Trust me you are missing alot then.
It is a hard Game, Especially because of the dark areas which happened to be filled with Zombies and God, (Or should I say Gordon? :P) knows what else.
There are no new Weapons, But hey now, Who needs new Weapons when there are already plenty to choose from?
The Game is a bit short, But reasonable, But the Story is mind blowing. I wont tell what happens in the story, As I might accidently tell something that I'm not supposed to.

Overall, I highly recommend this Game, Infact, The whole series to any Gamer. It doesnt matter whether you are a Beginner, Intermediate or an Advanced Player, You will find this game very interesting to Play.

The adventure didn't finished with blowing up Citadel. This game is the shortest and most exciting game I have ever seen in my life. In this episode Gordon and Alyx are running away and try to find a way to escape from City 17. There is no new equipment or new weapon. Also in this episode we will see Gordon and Alyx more close together. If you finished Half Life 2 already, you need to buy and play this game definitely.

Half Life 2 Ep. 1 came out 2 years after the release of Half Life 2. It was called Episode for a reason though. It took me 3 hrs to complete as opposed to 15 hrs Half Life 2 provided. Gameplay wise it doesn't add anything new. So the story is the only fresh thing it can deliver.

Episode 1 continues where Half Life 2 ended.

It's the shortest one of them all and adds a few new things which I really like for instance Alyx can only see in the dark if you turn on the flashlight and point it in some direction.

A must have for a Half-Life fan of course.

The Half-Life Series has left a legacy for a reason. Enough said.

If you're planning on buying the games individually, dont. Search the "Orange Box" on steam and buy it instead. You get the entire series plus both Portal games, and it comes out cheaper. The Orange Bundle was on sale yesterday for $5 on greenmangaming. Its normally 20 dollars however, which is still a pretty good deal. I think i bought it for $10. so yeah, the bundle can save you some money if you place it on your wishlist and buy it on sale.

Good. But not as good as Episode 2 or Half-Life 2. Get it anyway if you're gonna play through the ♥♥♥♥in' story and want to keep up with it or some ♥♥♥♥♥.

Continuation of the epic series by valve.

You start off from where half life 2 ended and make your way through the scariest set of levels in the new trilogy(HL2 trilogy) so far.

Definitely a must play for all half-life and fps lovers. You just cant skip this game or any games in the half life series for that matter. Get them all and immerse yourself in the complex yet great plot!

It's a lot shorter, but it's an important game to bridge the story between HL2 and episode 2.

Amazing gameplay, amazing story and just more from this Half-Life 2 experience that we all love! Awesome ending! But leaves a lot of questions in the end...
Only minus - shorter than Half-Life 2.

This is the epilogue to Half-Life 2, and it plays well. You can see the Portal-like thinking in the design, especially at the beginning areas, which are a bit puzzle-based rather than combat heavy. The difference is rather than using a portal device, you are using the gravity gun. You don't even start with a crowbar.

Of course, this is just while the game prepares to return to form. By the time it's over, you'll be back with crowbar in hand and a full array of weapons. As well as the return of Gordon's followers.

The game emphasizes the follower/NPC mechanics, as not only will Gordon have NPC followers helping him through parts of the game, but Alyx follows him for most of the game. Rather than being a burden to be protected like too many escorts, however, Alyx is an active combatant, and more than holds her own. You'll be glad she's there to draw fire and take down enemies at your side, and you'll notice the few times when she's pulled away to perform a background task and you have to go it solo.

It is a little abrupt, but it is worthy appendix to Half-Life 2's gameplay and storyline.

This review is not necessarily what I would call completely finished, but here is what I have thus far:

Half-Life 2: Episode One continues more or less directly from where the remarkable masterpiece known as Half-Life 2 left off. Needless to say, those who played and enjoyed Half-Life 2 will probably enjoy Episode One, as it continues the captivating storyline of Half-Life 2 over into a new phase following the events of the previous game.
