"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.

After years of putting this series on hold. I finally sat down and enjoyed one of the best cliffhangers of all time, one that is still hanging this day, after 9+ years. I regret not playing it sooner, and I cry for those who have waited years longer than myself, along with those who have passed on waiting for the sequel that will never come.

I once saved a fairy.

Fairy: I grant you one wish.
Me: I want World peace!
Fairy: I can't do this.
Me: Then I want Half-Life 3!
Fairy: Could you give me a map?

A Game designed for PC. Completely unique feeling which we are unfortunately forgetting today, flooded by console-ported junk and lack of dedication from mercantile designers.
