Half-Life 2

Xbox-Hq.Com
26 January 2007
  • Excerpt: Ok, to start, Half Life was deemed to be probably the best first person action game ever made on the PC. So with this tough act to follow, Half Life 2 comes crashing onto consoles everywhere, but how does it compare to its amazing predecessor? Well, it does a stand up job. Following on from the events of the first game, you reprise your role as Gordon Freeman, the dimensional crossing scientist from Black Mesa.

Half-Life 2

Into Liquid Sky
4 May 2006
  • Excerpt: Honestly, there was a time where I wasn't even sure that the long awaited sequel to Half-life was going to make it to the Xbox. Some months after the release of the critically acclaimed PC version, the Xbox version finally comes out and while one can't help but wonder how the two compares, let it be known that Xbox owners will find an excellent single player story in the game that they have been waiting patiently for.
  • Pros: Amazing visual presentation, Action offers a lot of variety, Excellent story and well developed gameworld, Fun weapons to use
  • Cons: Lots of load times, No multiplayer

  • Excerpt: throws the player into an eerily realistic, theoretically conceivable, and visually staggering George Orwell-inspired game world where a certain Dr. Gordon Freemanâ€â€�rogue physicist and survivor of the original game’s Black Mesa incidentâ€â€�arrives at central City 17, only to be swiftly steered into the hands of a resistance force working to bring down the suppressive administration.

  • Excerpt: The story starts off fairly simple. You're once again playing the role of Gordan Freeman. He's a scientist, an unlikely hero, and the savior of the world. He's also been thrown into an oppressive police state. First person shooters are big business nowadays. There's a zillion and one World War II titles on the market, a couple million science-fiction shooters, and thousands of realistic combat shooters. It wasn't always this way, though.

Half Life 2 Xbox 360 Review

DarkZero
29 October 2007
  • Excerpt: First released way back in 2004, Half Life 2 is certainly the most aged title to be included in The Orange Box. However, its inclusion in Valve’s recent compendium of excellence is a welcome one, as it gives 360, and in time PS3 owners, a chance to play one of three greatest FPS games in recent history. Unlike the Xbox release from a few years ago, this version of the game showcases Half Life 2 in all its glory, with not one nagging problem ruining the experience.

  • Conclusion: Overall… well… it’s my game of the year for sure. You can really tell the development time was so worth it, everything just oozes quality.
  • Pros: The looks, the sounds, the quality.
  • Cons: It’s ruined a lot of future FPS by being so good.

Half Life 2

Empire Online
25 May 2006
  • Summary: A year after tearing-up PCs and winning a clutch of ‘game of the year’ awards, Half-Life 2 is finally blasting its way onto the Xbox. But even though Microsoft’s gaming breezeblock shouldn’t be able to handle Valve’s gloomy classic – the PC game required five times the amount of RAM available on the Xbox, don’t you know – the developers have shoehorned just about everything from the original adventure onto a single Xbox disc.

Half Life 2 Xbox Review

DarkZero
3 December 2005
  • Conclusion: Without a doubt this the finest single player game of any type available on any console for the time being. It would be a crime for you to miss out on this excellent game. Even if it’s not your favourite genre of games you’d be doing yourself a major disservice by overlooking this or pigeon holing it as just another first person shooter. Go buy it now, you won’t regret it.
