I reckon HL2 is the best game ever made. There are some very close rivals but HL2 just has everything I enjoy in a game.
I was really hoping HL2 ep 1 would be more original and really continue the story. It didn't. It starts with you needing to get back into the citadel. (even though most of the last few levels of the other game was doing that!) Then, you have to get out and get on a train. Nothing but more of the same but this time without any original surprises. Finally when I got onto the train I thought maybe the story will start to become interesting. But it just ends! What was the point in that? If you were writing this episode as a book the plot would take a few lines at the most. I'm so dissapointed. I knew it was short but I thought it would be worth it. It wasn't. Now where's Episode 2 ?!?
