Half-Life 1 is the best action game ever in my opinion...far better than what I have seen of HL2 so far (just finished Highway 17). I am quite disappointed in HL2 actually. Didn't capture nearly that same feeling.

I loved everything about HL1: I thought one of the strengths was that you had absolutely no idea what sort of imagination shift might be required for the next level (including the outer space sequences).

I also really enjoyed HL2, although really it was much the same as the less weird parts of HL1, plus fantastic graphics and GSOH.

Just my few cents worth... happydance

I forgot to mention the logical approach to everything, which means you know you should always be able to figure out the next step without resorting to a walkthrough (unlike some games where you go to the walkthrough and realise that no amount of logical thought would have made any difference).

And no, I'm not on commission from Valve/Sierra...

HL1 is a great game, but I liked HL2 much better. I, on the other hand, did not care for Residue Processing, or the outer space level. I loved the rest of it, and probably would play it again, after I played HL2 for the second time.

Both great games, but HL2 has the edge, imo.

Hi again, re ur msg, HL1 I find is more challenging, but the graphics are terrible compared to HL2. Of the two I preferred HL2.

Now, I've made it to the Lambfa core, met the scientist, got the big gun, now in the pump room.

Keep you informed, have a great day,

I don't think there is any special way of using it. When you first got the Module it is automatically attached to the HEV suit thus enabling you to do long jumps. Try experimenting and do some jumps, running ones, short ones, etc.

I don't remember having to do anything. Just jumped from island to island and saving after each successful jump. Yes, I missed many times, but reloaded.

Sorry, Shaggy, I'm no help on this one.

Shaggy, I can't remember that either. I am wondering did you actually take the Long Jump Module at the end of the last level? I'm assuming you are now in Xen.
