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.

I am not entirely finished writing my review, 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.

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!

10/10

Which is scarier? A Zombine in melee range with a grenade or a Fast Zombie? You decide.
