Pick up the crowbar of research scientist Gordon Freeman, who finds himself on an alien-infested Earth being picked to the bone, its resources depleted, its populace dwindling. Freeman is thrust into the unenviable role of rescuing the world from the wrong he unleashed back at Black Mesa. And a lot of people, people he cares about, are counting on him.

Not the best game, but the engine has the potential to be the best, in the right hands.

Ohh how wrong you were all those years ago. The game is excellent but the engine is horrid to work with. It seems Valve and Respawn Entertainment (Titanfall 2013, yes a modified Source Engine game) have modified it and made it an excellent engine to use.

A lot better than the original 2008 engine that you would have had to deal with.

If you take away "Halo" and add in "Half" then you've got an even better game.

How to get Minusvotes:

Go to the Sanctuary of us HL2 ppl and spread the word of Halo...

BTW, that is a piece of good ol' beta, because the Gunship that was to be killed much later was here to pressurize the player more with its fire.

ok first of sure this games got bad graphics and those games don't but you don't dis classic games just because of that and besides it's based on the person so not everyone likes half life but many do so there it's solved so i like all three but also rts games so it really is because of the person

lol far cry have 2 environments only, hl2 has to many to count and they are so perfectly balanced so u might think (i have so many times):
Have this thing happen in another place and another time, and have Valve been there?

I really think if Half Life was on the Crysis engine, it would be 100 times more amazing. But either way it is still amazing :)

The problem is, you're bringing up the graphics of a 2004 game. For it's time, Half Life 2 was the best game around graphically. Let me repeat myself, it blew people away in E3 2003, and it was released in 2004.

It's fairly obvious that games like Crysis have way better graphics, but unfortunately then, and still now, you need a computer geared to the teeth to run that thing just right.
