FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

What do these ratings mean?

The Half Life series is a series that before Halo was the best. (Since halo 1 & 2 came out Half Life and Halo are the best games ever) Half Life 1 was the best PC shooter and was a experience that rocked. Years later Half Life 2 came out for PC (later Xbox). Now unless your computer has steriods or you are rich and have a top noch computer, YOU CANT RUN THIS GAME! But for a good reason? One the graphic are unspeakable. I mean look at them their amazing!! Same with sound quality. You will feel like you are there. Storyline, its half life 2 you know the guy in the suit is going to do something you dont know about. Even though I never beat it the storyline at start is basically this: you start out with the guy in the suit talking, then you are in a train inside City 17 i think. From the looks of it these dictator people the called the Combine have taken over and some old dude is on the tv all the time. You meet up with someone who was from Black Mesa and you find out the "resistance" i think is start a revolt. That is all of the story I know. Gameplay rocks. Half Life 2 has a unbelieveable phyics system and GRAVITY GUN. Of course there is solid good fun gun action. And some driving points. Overall this game is good. You dont need to beat Half Life 1 to understand this game. If you have a good enough computer or you got a xbox then be happy cause you can play it. Besides that Half Life 2 also comes with Half Life 2 Deathmatch and Counterstrike Source. Counterstrike source is regular counterstrike (which was and still is the best online game ever!!! Even a little bit better than Halo 2 online) but Half Life 2 graphics and all that. So I say this is a good game. If you have a way to play this then get it you will enjoy it
