"The Combine is still a threat in Valve’s episodic follow-up to Half-Life 2. Gordon and Alyx continue beyond City 17 to meet up with the resistance."

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.

Half-Life 2 - Episode 2

The biggest cliffhanger of the trilogy.


The game was pumping, mind breaking game, it was very good game.

The most emotional moment was Eli's death. The Impact to the end, I couldn't belive it.

The story has put it to the end.

Only play this if you want to be left on a cliffhanger that'll never be resolved. Half life 2 episode 2: the eternal cliffhanger is still a good game and has much nicer scenery than any other game in the series and finally gets away from labs and dystopian cities. The soundtrack is great and the visuals still look nice today. 3/3 would be in a phantom pain over the lack of a proper conclusion.

I'm Rick Harrison, and this is my pawn shop. I work here with my old man and my son, Big Hoss. Everything in here has a story and a price. One thing I've learned after 21 years - you never know what is gonna come through that door.

Very fun, this game expands opon its predacessors and makes things more intense with a new enemy NPC: The Hunter, making every encounter not only a short firefight, but a game of cat and mouse, but which is which? The story picks up where Episode 1 left off, and has an urgent quest with a massive climax. A must play for FPS and action fans.

The cliffhanger to this episode is really confusing, not going to spoil it. But I will give Valve the benefit of the doubt because they may be making an Episode 3 or a Half Life 3.
