I've been trying to beat the first level for way too long

Charles Jacobs, Jr., Amazon
22 January 2014
  • 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.

BEAR IN MIND HOW OLD THIS GAME TRULY IS

Ty, Amazon

  • Summary: First off Half-Life is well worth the money (it's long, and sometimes frustrating as heck), especially since it "redefined" the FPS shooter a while back. But when you say a while back let's just understand how OLD this game really is.

Better on the PC

A. Vegan, Amazon
27 November 2002
  • Summary: If you've played this game on the PC, I don't recommend playing it on the PS2. Although it looks nice, the controls are so difficult. This isn't a game that should have been brought out for the PS2. The game itself is one of the best, only on a PC though.

A classic FPS but it's showing its age...

Kyle Garrett, Amazon
16 July 2002
  • Summary: Like many other reviewers, I played Half-Life when it ws first introduced on the PC back in '98-99. The PS2 version is indeed bringing to the table nicer graphics,sound,framerate and the multiplayer(albeit two player)option"Decay",making it quite a hefty package.

I kinda liked it, kinda hated it...

Jacques Offenbach, Amazon
27 June 2002
  • Summary: Hmm... yeah. Where do I start? Oh, The game is fun, I think. I played it for hours when I first got it. And as I was playing the first time around, I was like, "This is the coolest thing ever." HOWEVER... Then you play co-op with a friend.

Great one-player mode, multiplayer is horrible

Joe, Amazon
21 February 2002
  • Summary: I had a great time fighting off aliens and soldiers because of the nice story ... but the multiplayer looks so rushed its like they let a bunch of monkeys work on it. I had no fun at all fighting my friends in this... get unreal tournament instead for a good multiplayer fragfest.

not as good as PC

Mr. A. Marczylo, Amazon
4 November 2013
  • Summary: Really this is just an attempt to make a PC port for the PS2 with limited success. The graphics were certainly improved and when going to the health station a actual syring comes out and injects health into you. You could even destroy them to gain more health from what I recall.

Aliens break through a dimensional portal and threaten our very existence

sparkymarky1973, Dooyoo
22 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Half-Life is a first-person shooter that originally started life on the P.C long before appearing on the PS2 and which has established itself with something of a cult following over the years amongst hard-core gamer fans in much the same way that the more recent Halo series has done.

Only if you missed the PC version

Amazon
29 March 2004
  • Summary: I've not yet seen a first-person shooter title for a console that manages to satisfactorily overcome the lack of a mouse and keyboard control. Inevitabley, you end up running around looking at the floor or the ceiling while you're being filled with lead from your enemies.

  • Summary: i have to say that half life is a good game but i think that the Bond games are the best games out for any console! i think that xbox are the best console with the best graphics. then it's PS2 with the best gameplay, and i hate gamecube overall
