    Brilliant escapade that you are bound to love.

    I built my entire gaming rig to play Half-Life 2. And it was quite worth it. It was pure genius, one of the finest first-person-shooters, if not game I have ever played. Every moment of it was exciting and genuinely fun,... Read Full Review

    Maybe too short, but some of the best gameplay I've experienced (spoiler-free)

    Episode One has great gameplay. Some say that it ends too soon (it does), but I'm glad that Valve decided to distill the great aspects of HL2 into this tidy package instead of including its less fun aspects just to make ... Read Full Review

    Short but oh so sweet.

    I felt compelled to write a full review for this expansion due to the lackluster feelings I have about HL2 itself. HL2 in my view was a pretty mediocre game considering its part of the Half-Life franchise. The game had... Read Full Review

    Episode One defines "short but sweet," totally refining the Half-Life 2 experience in four near-perfect hours.

    People have every right to be skeptical of Half-Life 2: Episode 1. It's the first real high-profile game being released in the Steam-based episodic format, and it follows a game with a horrific ending and great respect f... Read Full Review

    This is what the original Half-Life 2 should've been like...

    Pros: + Very strong gameplay + Great voice cast - yet again + Excellent puzzles + Still looks amazing with Source + Alyx stays with you! Cons: - Yet another cliffhanger... - Too short for my taste (started with... Read Full Review

    Ehhhh what just happened?

    Sadly enough the most time you'll spend with this game is the installation process. They had me hooked in and I didn't see the end coming at all. Only took me 5 hours tops and I was on hard difficulty.. hmmm. No new mult... Read Full Review
