Summary: I've only ever played this on the computer, and it was one of my favorites. Playing on the PS2 I recalled those childhood memories. I especially love the 2-player mode, it's something different and new to the series that I wasn't expecting.
Summary: For the record, let me state that I began playing Half-Life 2 for the original Xbox. Next, when The Orange Box came out on the Xbox 360 (containing an improved graphics system that included Half-Life 2, Episode 1, Episode 2, Portal, and Team Fortress 2), I often found myself wanting to play the original of the series. I knew Half-Life was on the PC, but didn't find out until recently that it was also supported by the PS2 game console.
Summary: One of the best FPSs ever made. It sill holds up fairly well today. The graphics show their age, and it might take some time to get use to the absolutely ridiculous speed at wich you move around, but still an amazing game.
Summary: I literally could write a one hundred billion word review of this amazing game, but I'll leave it as this... This was GotY for 1998, it WAS/IS the best 1998 FPS game ever made, I will forever compare every FPS I play to it, this is an FPS forefather, buy it, if you think it's poorly made... it was made in 1998 -.- give me a break. True FPS fans will stand by this game because it was revolutionary.
Summary: 3 1/2 out of 4 stars Pros: Great cinematic first-person experience with clever set-pieces and in-game moments; well-designed puzzles that make you think; long campaign with good pacing and moody atmosphere. Cons: Doesn't look as good as other FPS' on the system; frame-rate stutters frequently; slightly finicky controls.
