Summary: I got this used and it works flawlessly. Half-Life is an amazing game, despite its age. The 15 year old physics engine and controls still feel fresh and playable today. If you enjoyed Half-Life 2, get this game, you won't be disappointed!
I've been trying to beat the first level for way too long

Summary: The fact that there are no checkpoints in this game makes me so angry. Every time I get towards the end of the first level there's something that kills me. That would be fine if I had a checkpoint, but every time you die you have to start all the way back at the beginning of the game. Definitely a huge downside to this game. Still worth buying because the story is great, but Valve should have thought that through beforehand.
Summary: I found the game to be very uniuge with its amazing gameplay. The way that VALVe made the puzzles and platforms was perfect with the game itself , instead of just going "hey there's a puzzle there, try to solve it" they have the puzzles as situations, and the way they have the situations goes flawlessly with the gameplay. There are some parts in the game that don't go so well with the game like a little lag just from leaving the flashlight on, not that good A.I., etc.
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.
