More Hl2 Goodness but Way to short and not enough new content. shorter Than blue shift. Episodic content is a SCAM!

User Rating: 7.3 | Half-Life 2: Episode One PC
I was excited when The expansion for hl2 was finally out, but dissipointed in this Ridiculous Episode scam valve came up with its just an excuse to be lazy. This is not a years worth of work.

Pros: The same great gameplay with some good improvements.
Voice Acting is still top of the line and lots of dialogue.
story is decent.
Environments still look nice and HDR is implemented.
Many great aspects are unchanged.
Action can be more intense than the first.
flashlight battery increased (i think)
high replayability

Cons: WAYYYYYYY TO SHORT. SHORTER THAN BLUE SHIFT I CANT STRESS THIS ENOUGH. 4 hours tops without commentary
story answers vary few questions.
NO New MP content.
Levels are even more linear and too dark for too long dark in some areas.
no new guns.
not enough fodder.

die hard HL2 fans will want to get this but others will want to consider if 4 hours (tops) of SP and no new Mp content is worth 20 bucks
