Summary: Warning, this review may spoil some surprises in the game, but not too many.... Is this the perfect game, like Edge and several other reviewers claim? Well, no... But it's addictive at times... It's no radical change from the original Half Life, but a game several years more advanced in graphics.
Summary: Great game, it took me about 15 hours to complete. I have a few complaints about it, one the loading times, there are so many loading times and they really get in the way of the gameplay, to me this was a major let down.
Summary: First off, I'm not even going to try denying that this game is awesome fun. Good graphics, good sound effects, good fights, good story, the famous physics engine - you could say this game has it all.
