This might be the longest cliffhanger in videogame's history.
Still one of the best games ever made.

Nice told with Alyx

HALF-LIFE 2 EPISODE 2 starts immediately where Half-Life 2 Episode 1 ended. Gordon Freeman and Alyx Vance must continue their fight, alongside the resistance, against the evil Combine. After the ever so slightly below par Episode 1, Episode 2 is a real return to form. Everything that was so good about HL2 is developed here and made even better. The narrative arc is strong, the dialogue well-written and witty, the voice acting accomplished and convincing, the environments spectacular and varied, and the mix between puzzle solving and combat just right. We meet several new enemies and some of the combat is pretty challenging, especially the final battle which is big on scale and mayhem and requires real strategy to complete. It’s a tough finale but well worth the effort. There’s so much to enjoy in the whole Half-Life series I can’t recommend these games enough.

5/5

Half Life 2 is a first person shooter game released in 2004. It was awarded as the Game of the Decade in the VGA Awards. The award was received by Gabe Newell, Valve founder.

The game takes place 20 years after the Black Mesa incident of Half Life ( The game that chaged it all ) . Gordon Freeman awakes from hibernation in City 17 and become part of the resistance to face the Combine Empire and attempt to defeat it. In the game Gordon meets Alyx Vance, who is part of the resistance. The game is one of the pioneers in introducing a playmate .

Half Life 2 presents different enemies . The Headcrabs still produce that feeling of rejection when they attack. The action is breathtaking but it breaks , not like Call of Duty games where you shoot without breathing.

The narrative is implemented throughout the game, not with recording or notes , it is not necessary. The experience is brilliant. The Source engine allows good management of physics and the introduction of a new weapon. The gravity gun . The technology also allows open spaces in addition to traditional outdoor passageways and internal spaces .

The handling of the narrative and physics puzzles changed the way the FPS games developed from there into the future . It was a turning point in games history the same way it was the first Half Life .

The game was released for PC under Windows , required a 2 Ghz processor . 512 MB ​​of RAM , and a graphics card compatible with Direct X 8.1 . For the few resources sought at that time the graphical quality of the game was very good and ran very smoothly .

This is one of the "must play" games if one is serious about being a Gamer ,not only for its quality but also for being part of the history of video games.

Recommend the game, but when you get to he part of episode 2 (SPOILER) when you fire a big a§§ missle, just quit the game from there on. Watching the ending of Episode 2 just makes you very obsessed to see how its gonna start on the new Half Life game! It is a sad ending!
