As Dr. Gordon Freeman, you were last seen exiting City 17 with Alyx Vance as the Citadel erupted amidst a storm of unknown proportions. In Episode Two, you must battle and race against Combine forces as you traverse the White Forest to deliver a crucial information packet stolen from the Citadel to an enclave of fellow resistance scientists.

A necessary expansion with various engine improvements and a ton of mods available. Surprisingly, this game has better graphics than lots of mainstream crap today, at least on NVIDIA cards with SSAO and supersampling enabled. This is why HL2 E2 has so many modifications.

Improved over the almost over the almost hard to be improved. Easily most improved than Episode One ¡¡¡but need a secuel immediately!!!.
Im don't wanna begin to think of the future of Valve, but is hard not make speculations about this company.

The fantastic conclusion to Valve's Half-Life saga. Continue where Gordon and Alyx left off in Half-Life 2: Episode One, this time they're in a pretty forest and they make their way to the Rebel HQ in White Forest.

The second mission after Half Life 2.

Valve did another great job. Solid gameplay. And the minute details in this game are incredible.

And its great to get out of City 17...well whats left of it anyway.
Gordon Freeman has to be one of the most destructive theoretical physicists I have ever heard of.

I think the best thing I can add in way of a review, is that is is nice to see the mission continuing so fluidly and purposefully.

Some added elements to the HL2 adventure really shine.

I can think of one thing to add though...

With Gordon being so silent, and a bit of somewhat dull NPC dialog -
what about some Monty Python humor?

Oh, there is plenty of opportunity.

I found myself sticking things in NPC's heads to liven things up.

If you dont have this or Episode 1 - or any of HL2, go for a bundle.

The HL2 game-verse is thoroughly enjoyable.

Good game, but not really innovative and not so atmospheric as original and even Ep1 (what can be more epic than destroyed Citadel?). Although, some time before I liked Ep2 more than Ep1, things changes, and I can't preffer one over other right now.

Any way you look at it, Episode Two stands out, even among the Half-Life series, as something special. It may be shorter than the original, but it's a burly experience packed into roughly six hours or so that offers up all the diversity, level design, and thoughtful gameplay we've known while making sure to propel the story forward and leave us wanting more.
