I checked a few websites that said the game was cancelled, but then I stumbled upon this on ebay. What do you think?

It's kinda strange that the seller doesn't even mention the fact that Half-Life was never really released, isn't it? Seeing as it has a scarcity rating of 10 on Digital Press it's got to be kinda valuable, non?

Or does he jsut assume everyone knows that?

Or it's a bootleg of it. It's hard to tell given the low quality of the pic.

if I'm not mistaken, the "official" one didn't get the artwork yet.... so that's a possibility... but ebay's rules wouldn't allow such selling.... it has a rating because as I said, it WAS released to reviewers, testers and a small number were given out to some of the people who worked on it or whatever... it's rare but not fictional.

Yah its a bootleg.  I got one off ebay a while back, and was actually rather upset that it was a bootleg, given the rarity of the game (yes it was cancelled but it did have units shipped to stores, and allegedly some got out(allegedly)).

 ony my version, anyways, they printed the case artwork on a home printer, pretty shoddy, and the game disc is fairly chinsy, but it does work on an unmodified DC just like a normal disc.  As long as the price doesnt get too insane, and you enjoy HL/DC enough, I'd say go for it just for the uniqueness.

 

oh, and gunbird 2 is included in that lot, heres my lil review of it: http://www.gamespot.com/dreamcast/action/gunbird2/player_review.html?id=479722&tag=contributions;review4

I will probably go for it, if it doesn't get too pricy.

I remember I passed up on a HL DC auction about a year and a half ago. It went for something like $20 I think. I was going to bid but I forgot about it until about five minutes before the auction ended, and I started having second thoughts as I was about to bid. I hadn't really taken a good look at the auction and seller to see if the game was legit or not, and considering how $20 for HL DC seems way too good to be true, I let it go.

Anyway, the game does exist but I'd be willing to bet that most copies you're going to find are bootlegs. I have a hard time believing that someone with an authentic version of the game is going to put it up for a low starting bid seeing as how it's one of, if not the, rarest game for the DC.
