good game, bad aiming

  • Summary: this is a pretty fun shooter, the graphics are pretty good, the shooting is polished, and this has some interesting enemies. but the first chapter is kind of slow, and with the aiming, when you push the right analog stick up, you aim down, and when you push it down, you aim up, and the aiming wears the game down.

Great fun for a while, but gets old eventually.

  • Summary: Keep in mind I'm writing this review from the perspective of somebody that played the game in the last six months, and not when it first came out. Back then first person shooters (FPS) weren't all the deep in the story department and most of the time players just saw the "storyline" as something getting in the way of shooting anything that moves Half Life came onto the scene with radically new thinking on several fronts. The biggest one was intelligent enemies.

If ya played it on PC, ya played it here

  • Summary: Well, they didn't screw it up. That may seem like a back-handed compliment, but in the case of Half-Life, which many of us consider the greatest computer game ever made, this is high praise indeed. The classic tale of Dr. Gordon Freeman's encounter with government duplicity, a science experiment gone wrong, and horrid visitors from another dimension are all here as they were. Even people who have never touched a first-person shooter know the story.

Good solid FPS, can become a little tedious though

  • Summary: Half-Life is certainly a good FPS title for the PS2. It's very reminiscent of Voyager Elite Force or Red Faction. You play the game as Gordon Freeman, a scientist in a secret research facility. Something goes horribly wrong and a portal to an alien world is opened up and you find yourself battling a variety of alien monsters and even government soldiers sent to kill you and cover the whole thing up. In the end, you will travel to the alien world for the final showdown.

It's no HALO, but what is?

  • Summary: OK, I'll begin by saying I own all game systems. N64, PS2, X-Box, Dreamcast,and Game cube. I've played every FPS game released (I know, sad huh....) and I concider myself an authority in this arena. That said, Half-Life is the current game in my PS2 console. I had never played the PC version so I didn't know what to expect. I went through the in-game training and then began with DECAY. The co-op play was fun.

good game

  • Summary: Let me tell you a little secret:I never finished half life on the PC.I know it's sacrilegious,but hey,it was the fall of 1998,and my consoles were calling to me with stuff like Xelda and Metal Gear Solid.Now,revisiting HL on the PS2,i'm reminded of just how amazing this game is.Although it's looking a little outdated in the graphics department {even with the upgraded PS2 visuals}, HL can still hold its own against prettier newcomers like Red Faction.The saving grace here...

  • Summary: I remember playing this years ago on the PS2 but I never completed it. After playing the Orange Box on PS3 I thought I would buy this (I know PC version is better) and its exactly how I remember it and its still a lot of fun to play.

  • Summary: While it is not always clear where to go, and the graphics may not be up to date 'realistic' HD, but none the less an enjoyable and challenging game.

It's so 'bad' I've only played it four times!?!

  • Summary: I've never played the PC version although now I've got one that can run the 'generations'version and not the original and I still stick with this one. I bought it a while ago after the hype proclaiming it to be the best FPS ever,and I thought it was...ok. After 3 or 4 hours that had changed and I was well and truly hooked,I've only just read some of the more negative reviews here and what can I say? Er,what slowdown?
