    short but sweet

    If you’re a fan of the half life series, you’ve gotta play this. 10 bucks would be a more appropriate price for this game rather than 20, but its part of the half life series, so I had to have it. graphically, the ga... Read Full Review

    If you play one episode this year make it this one.

    I JUST finished Half-Life 2: Episode 1! It was soooooo awesome! It took about 5 hours(would have been less but I'm retarded with some of the puzzles) to complete. I like that it was short because I actually get to finish... Read Full Review

    A decent game that is a bit short.

    Half life 2 episode one is the much anticipated follow up to Half life 2. In it you continue playing Gordon Freeman as he accompanies Alyx in an attempt to escape city 17. The game is overall a bit short( I finished in a... Read Full Review

    The best half-life game to date. Valve did it again.

    I didn't expect a game better than half-life 2, since hl2 itself was perfect. To my surprise, the game was even better. Graphics have been really improved (character expressions, lightning, etc). It makes you learn more ... Read Full Review

    Valve has done it again

    I cannot believe the amount of greatness they put in this game. This perhaps the best shooter since Half-Life 2. With great graphics and the traditional Half-Life feel, this turned out to be great trilogy starter. Thi... Read Full Review

    No Words...

    The first 15 mins alone pays back the price of it.... It is nonstop action and scripted events that leave you so immersed. Along with the ambiance, this game is so awesome. The graphics are much better than Half... Read Full Review

    All you would expect but in the end too short.

    Suffice to say that Half Life 2: Episode One is everything you would expect it to be. If you enjoy Half Life 2, you will enjoy this. The action is fast paced and the game never really sits still, you’re always in the act... Read Full Review
