"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.

So this what it feels like ? So this is what the wait for Half Life 3 feels like.

Half Life 2 Episode Two is the sequel to Episode One and begins straight away. We find ourselves in the outskirts of City 17 as the Citadel has now opened a portal to the Combines home world and it's now up to us to find a way to the rebel base and shut down the portal once and for all.

The gameplay is identical to previous titles in the Half Life 2 games. Overall there's not much to say here as it's basically DLC to Half Life 2.

Graphics wise this game looks a tad bit better than Half Life 2 due to the range rendering, which I thought was under used in Half Life 2 Episode One. The portal coming from the citadel can be seen throughout the entire game which looks outstanding.

There is a reason this is my favorite Half Life title and that's the action sequences. This game is like a great action movie. Action scenes after action scenes after action scenes and it all ends up to one of the biggest cliffhanger endings in history of gaming. I'm not joking it actually pains me not knowing what happens next.

I also love the incredible soundtrack. It's beyond kick ♥♥♥ and is one of my favorite game soundtracks of all time.

In the end Half Life 2 Episode Two is a thrilling ride and it should be played by everyone. I'm glad I finally joined the bandwagon. Now I can join the Half Life 3 waiting community.

Final Rating:
10/10 - A must own and a must play

Episode Two... IMO the most challenging episode so far (especially on hard mode). New areas, new enemies, and a whole lot of fun! If you really push it, you can get 20 or more hours out of it. Episode Two is definitely worth your time and money!

And yes, it's true... it has a great cliffhanger :>
