Half Life 2 Ep. 2 came out in 2007, a year after Ep. 1. Just like Ep. 1 it's quite short, this time ~5 hrs. But compared to Ep. 1 it actually has some new content to deliver other then the story.

New enemy types were added. The Hunter for the Combine, and the poisonous archnids.

The game also has awesome levels. The arachnid lair for example. At one point of the game, you will also get a car. Or when you will get ambushed on a road. And there is also that final epic battle in the last chapter.

Personally this is my favourite

ps: come on Gaben. It's time to raise the bar for the 3rd time. Show these amateurs how to make real fps.

It isn't as long as the original Half-Life 2, but it's a great game.

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.

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.

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.
