Half-Life with good physics, and graphics, and gravity guns. Oh my!
·The physics are absolutely a reason some people are buying this game. They're Hollywood unbelievable!
·The graphics are awesome as well. The textures are all high resolution and look amazing. The character models actually look the best than in any game.
·As high end as this game is, I can honestly say this. It runs on 256MB of memory. When I was trying to get married, I sold 2GB of memory and other misc crap to get a wedding ring. I had to go out and replace one of the sticks so I bought 256MB of PC2700 memory. Half-Life 2 ran. Now, I didn't say it ran very well (because it didn't) but it did run.
·The story is a lot different from the original Half-Life and I don't feel it completely puts you back in getting to know Gordon Freeman. This time I just feel more like a grunt from Quake or something.
·Letting the black head crabs pick at your brain. Yummy.
·Half-Life 2, despite not being the fullest of sequels, is a great game with lots of modifications to actually shake a roof top. The multiplayer is top notch and with the addition to Counterstrike: Source and Half-Life: Source, there's no need to pull out your old Half-Life CDs ever again.
