5.0 out of 5 stars Half life two episode phew!, 24 Oct 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Half-Life 2: The Orange Box (PC DVD) (Video Game)
O.k. so I bought Half Life two, episode two, on line so I am reviewing that as opposed to the orange box set. So.............

I think that this episode, in the half life saga has been long in the waiting but is in no way disappointing. The scenary (particulaily the forest area) is stunning, the lighting quality very realistic and if it wasn't for the antlions and combine forces would be a nice spot for a holiday.
It has been said that most video games are B-movie scripts, which is why most don't translate to movies so well, with this story I beg to differ. The story is first class and would rank along side most Hollywood scripts.

The action is intense particulaly the last battle with stiders and hunters. Hunters are one of the new enemies that arrive on the half life scene. They are really difficult to kill with any of the weapons to hand, though my favourite way was to run them over in the car from about 50 metres as it gaurantees a kill. Half Life two episode phew! I was beating up my key board trying to stay alive!

The puzzles in this game hark back to the original Half life game in that they are actually thought provoking. I felt that the ones in Half life two were pretty easy after a second or two consideration. episode one improved on them and episode two's were much smarter and more interesting.
Portal looks like it is along these lines, interesting Half Life puzzles without the gun fights.
All in all A brilliant game.
