Summary: I still enjoy playing old Xbox games and this one has me gripped. OK, the guys running around with what looks like a Christmas turkey on their heads looks laughable but the action and storyline has me playing this every chance I get.
Summary: Basicly the next step in Half Life game you'll be overwhelmed by the powerful graphic's on it that Value has worked so hard to try and do over the years. As the story unfolds you meet a lot of new people and oldies that you met in the other games of Half Life. The story continues after Freeman escapes the hole thing in Half Life and send on a wild train with The G-man to try to stop things like he did in the other games.
Summary: An absolutely brilliant game. We played this on easy as we are not great computer game players and it was great. Not just a shoot 'em up, but a game that makes you think a little as well. Go through the levels killing the bad guys and machines and working out how to open force fields or walk over broken down bridges.
Summary: OK, first things first, if you have an Xbox 360, get The Orange Box, or if you have a powerful enough PC, get the PC version, they're better and offer more. THAT BEING SAID... When you consider the system it's running on, this is an amazing achievement. Sure, the frame rate can drop, and it looks worse than the other versions I mentioned, but it still looks very nice, and plays incredibly well.
Summary: This is a good game, no question, and definitley woerth buying. But the real question is; Is it better than the original. Things it has (and the original lacks). - Wide, immersive landscapes. - Extremly powerfull (Source) physics engine. - Far superior graphics. - Real use of vehicles. Things it lacks (and the original has mastered). - Use of puzzles in gameplay. - Really simple, easy to get into, but strong plot. - Less revolutionary. - Good (or decent) AI.
Summary: It was just awesome! i just completed it after a total of 12 hours of gameplay and i loved every second. Im not usually patient enough to play long-winded story-lined games, but this is ... exceptional. BUY IT!!!
Summary: the first time i put this game in the console i realized straght away this game is going to be remembered like halo and gears of war. the graphics for the time when it came out was jaw dropping. the game play was near to perfection, it was just like as if you are actually in the game real life phychics. full of wonders.
