About This Game

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 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 gaben 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 Gaben'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 Gaben had been. He looked concerned and frightened. I began running as fast as I could back to Valve HQ. But Gaben 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 gaben 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. Gaben 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 Gaben managed to stab me in the proccess. Gaben 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 Gaben 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 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.

I think it's the first singleplayer game i have 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.

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 than 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.
