I was concerned about the lack of content from Valve so I beagn an inquiry into it. After finding nothing and getting "I don't want to comment on this yet" from thier CEO Gabe Newell, I decided to give up. I noticed gabe with a large grin on his face as i walked away from Valve HQ it saddens me more. Then I look up as a woman asks me "Are you that guy investigating valve?". "Yes I am". She then said "I'm Gabe's old maths teacher and when looking through his old maths tests I found one question he got wrong!". "What was it?" I asked. "2+1"she said. A true look of surprise crossed my face. I looked back to where Gabe had been. He looked concerned and frightened. I began running as fast as I could back to Valve HQ. But Gabe was faster he used his long fall boots to jump straight down the stair well. He then boarded the front exits with filling cabnets using his gravity gun. I shouted at gabe to let me in but his only reply was "THESE THINGS THEY TAKE TIME!". I was to angry to give up now. I sparta kicked the door and filling cabnets down. Gabe ran for the stairs throwing a barrage of crowbars at me. I refused to stop. Chasing him up the stairs I found him in his office. In one hand he helled one of his many swords and in the other a copy of the illusive Half Life 3. "If you come a step closer I swear to god i'll destroy this and bury it where no one will find it, in a mexican land fill!". "NOOOOOOOOOOOO!" I screamed. I jumped at gabe and grabbed half life 3. However Gabe managed to stab me in the proccess. Gabe tried to grab half life 3 but I wouldnt let him. I dived out the way as Gabe charged at me. He missed and hit a wall and was knocked out. I ran as far as i could from Valve HQ as I could which was about a metre. I fell to the ground in an alley way just to the side of Valve HQ. I layed up against the wall slowly bleeding to death. "We made it Gordon" I said. but we hadn't, just then Gabe came round the corner. He kneeled down in front of me. He stroked his finger down my face "shhhhh" he exclaimed and threw an egg at me. "It will never be oger" he wispered gently to me. I began to fall unconcious as he walked away. I felt myself slipping but as I died I let out a tremendous "33333333333333333333333333333333333333333333!". HALF LIFE 3 NOT COMFIRMED.

Yet again Valve does not disappoint. I started the game and was not happy that I did not get to use the Gravity Gun as much as I did in HL2 and Episode One. But Towards the end, I was not disappointed. I loved how in this Episode there was no "Final Boss" but a whole event, which allowed me to use my brain more, as well as use time managment techniques. If you have not played this episode I highly recommend you to do so.

Perfect! Although open ending makes me sad. Valve, take care, give at least one duck about Half-Life 3. Or Episode Three at least. This ending was cruel for gamer.
P.S. Ducking dwarf. I hate him.

Well. This game. Best game ever made? Probably not, but up there. My personal favourite game of all time? Definitely.

This game. This game has the most action and intiguing story crammed into 6 hours I've ever seen. Only really 4 hours shorter than Half Life 2, this game actually has a longer campaign than games such as Battlefield 3. It has a new enemy introduced to the game, (The Hunter) which is probably my favourite enemy in the series. The part where you must get the extract from the Gaurdian larvae is axtremely nerve racking and heart pounding. Going through that tight tunnel with that huge thing was one of the most amazing parts of the game. The silo defense is absolutely BRUTAL, but fun as heck and great for running over hunters. There is also the ending... well, I'd rather not spoil it. It's terrible yet amazing, and makes you really want Half Life 3 to come out.

PLEASE SEE: DO NOT play this game until you have played ALL of the previous games in the series.

By completing this game, you have joined the ranks of the damned, forever walking the earth waiting for a sequel, a follow-up, hell, even a comic.

10/10 would hang from cliff for another 7 years
