About This Game

Half-Life® 2: Episode Two is the second in a trilogy of new games created by Valve that extends the award-winning and best-selling Half-Life® adventure.

As Dr. Gordon Freeman, you were last seen exiting City 17 with Alyx Vance as the Citadel erupted amidst a storm of unknown proportions. In Episode Two, you must battle and race against Combine forces as you traverse the White Forest to deliver a crucial information packet stolen from the Citadel to an enclave of fellow resistance scientists.

Episode Two extends the award-winning Half-Life gameplay with unique weapons, vehicles, and newly-spawned creatures.

Great game but it kills us with so many questions. I'm waiting for Half-Life 3, for some answers, such as: Who the F*** is G-man? Will Gordon find the Borealis? Something that I might know in this life (more 10 years from now) or in the next.

I finished it several times and finished again now and that end ♥♥♥♥ed me again. What can I say? It is a classic and every gamer should play this game. Just buy it and you will love it.
PROS:
- Alyx Vance :)
- Everything about Half Life
- Engrossing story
- ♥♥♥♥ing Combine and Zombies
- Freeman's Crowbar
CONS:
- It is too short. Especially if you are crazy about Half Life.

Nothing more. Now go and play the game...

I think it's the first singleplayer game i terminate never in my life. From the episodes of HL2 i recommend the #2 worth so much this game.

Good things about HL2-EP2 :
-Developer Valve (Big fan).
-The story rocks (You make a long and difficult journey to save the world).
-There is only action in each chapter.
-You must to kills Soldiers,Zombies,Robots.
-The chick is with you has nice a-s-s! :3

Rumor has that in HL3 will be continuity from HL2-EP2, lets hope it's true because we want the sequel of this game.
Try it 10/10*

Okay, first of all, you should play this game for see what is happening in next step but also you shouldn`t play this game because you will be disappointed at end of the game. You will be angry. Because atmosphere in this game amazing and non stop action taking you. After a couple of hours you are starting to think you are Gordon Freeman and when the game finish you can not save yourself from ambient. Suddenly it finishes and your all enjoyable times finish. If you interest with this game, you must play Half Life 2 and Half Life 2 Episode One definitely. There is not too much thing to say for this amazing episode of the main game. Must try and must play definitely.

The last in the epic series so far, this is a must play for all fps and half lovers alike.

The story takes an important turn in this installment and the game ends in a cliffhanger.

Many loyal fans all over the world including me are still eagerly waiting for the next installment in the series from valve. And there have been no scarcity of half life marathons in an attempt to reignite this series.

There have been rumours that the next (hl3?) is in the works but I just hope that it comes out before 2020 (thats when half life 2 takes place btw) :D

Back to episode 2, just get it!

10/10
