"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 = An awesome 90's throwback game that is still fun to play.

Half-Life 2 = Arguably the greatest first-person shooter of all time. Also provided the soul of all Source engine games.

Half-LIfe 2: Episode 1 = An excellent continuation of the Half-Life 2 storyline.

Half-Life 2: Episode 2 = Why everyone wants Half-Life 3.

Now i understand why everyone wants Half-life 3 so badly...
Half-life 2 and Half life 2 episode one are nothing compared to this episode, the difficulty level was also greatly increased, i enjoyed the gameplay throughout the episode.. More importantly the story was just BADASS , there were so many amazing turn of events and the way they introduced new enemies, new wepons and stuff and funny aspects, the least i can say is i loved it
But i still have lots of questions in my mind.. like what happens after Alyx's father was murdered? What legendary borelli were they talking about? What ship Alyx's father asked us to destroy? To answer all these question they need to make Half-Life 3 but according to Gaben's math teacher... gaben used to get sick by hearing the number 3.. so i guess Half-Life 3 is not possible but i see slight chances of Half-Life 3 in PS4's generation becuz:

ps4+ps3+ps2+ps1
add the numbers
4+3+2+1=10
Divide it by the number of consoles
10/4= 2.5 round it off = 3

HALF-LIFE 3 CONFIRMED!!!!

Pre-Release Review
Episode Two starts off with City 17 blowing up and a spectacular bridge crashing behind you. From then on it's a fight to get to safety and find Alyx's father. With a lot of exterior battles and action, this game in the series feels very large while still maintaining the short packed with action game that an episode should be. However, you should know that the game ends with a huge cliffhanger and that there is no sight of Half Life Episode 3 or Half Life 3 coming out in the near future. This is rather disappointing, but at the same time has kept many a fans chomping at the bit for a new release in the series.

The Half-Life Series has left a legacy for a reason. Enough said.

If you're planning on buying the games individually, dont. Search the "Orange Box" on steam and buy it instead. You get the entire series plus Portal, and it comes out cheaper. The Orange Box was on sale yesterday for $5 on greenmangaming. Its normally 20 dollars however, which is still a pretty good deal. I think i bought it for $10. so yeah, the box can save you some money if you place it on your wishlist and buy it on sale.

Until Episode 3/Half-Life 3 comes out, this will remain the cliffhanger ending to the Half-life series made obnoxious due to how ♥♥♥♥ing long we have had to wait, and will continue waiting, in order to find out what happens next.

Play it so you can start waiting too! x_x
