Summary: When my son got it for Christmas, he was so excited and wanted to go play it right away. The disc would not read and he was so disappointed. He thought Santa brought him a dud. The next morning he gave it one more try and it finally started working.
Summary: I really love this game. However I would prefer playing the version on the PC. But this has a few different details that are not in the PC version. Slightly improved graphics is the main thing as well as Half-Life Decay.
Summary: Please hear me out before you say I'm a strange guy for not liking Half-Life. I never actually played the game- I watched my younger cousin play the game. Watching him play I got the feeling Half-Life is pretty much nothing but running around -VERY quickly- shooting things.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
