Aw, shoot, the ending of my game is buggy and the game just won't end. I've watched a video and twice I've completed the last task exactly as required, but the final cut scene just doesn't happen and the mission shows as failed, with Green apparently rising from the ashes in a brand new glowy sphere to begin his end game dialogue all over again, only this time I have no energy balls to chuck at him.

And sad to say, not enjoying Episode One at all. Where's the free-wheeling spirit of the original game? This is just catching balls of light, one after the other, and throwing them. If I wanted to play basketball, I would. Boo, I say.

Episode One picked up nicely once we left the Citadel, thankfully. I'm now in Episode Two, and enjoying it. After this I'll just have to load up HL1, though I'm sure the graphics will suffer in comparison. All in all, a great game, though.

Yep. Now, I was unable to complete Episode 2 because I couldn't be bothered with all the dang striders. I'll go back to it, though. Great game.

HL1 is not nearly as good, though still a decent game in its own right.

Not so keen on HL1; too much emphasis on tricky moves and not enough on good gameplay. I'm stuck in a jump sequence that I can't do, period, because of the awkward controls for a running jump, and am about to abort the game. Too bad.

I got past the spot only to find myself in another spot. I'll give it a rest and start a new game of HL2.

In Half Life still -- is there any way to skip ahead in this game? I have tried this one move about 100 times and I simply will never be able to do it.

God Mode won't help. I'm not dying; I just can't do this move.

Awww Hagatha, that is the worst. Not having played this, I'm not sure if the game is linear or if you can skip around in it. I know we have folks who have played it though. Where are you?

Hmm. I finally made it through though I have no idea how. I just kept randomly hitting the forward, crouch and jump keys and somehow managed to slide through two very difficult areas.

I'm limping through this game, hoping I will come upon some areas that don't rely on swift moves. My Tomb Raider days are long over!

Good thing I played Half Life 2 first. If I'd started with this one I might never have tried the second.

Glad to see someone else getting some kicks out of the HalfLife games: I still think that the original was a fantastic game (with a great sense of humour)and way ahead of its time, but you have to remember that it was released over 10 years before HL2.

It is definitely worth persevering.

And have you played Portal yet? smile

I'll keep at it if only to see if there is a segment on Ravensholme ("We don't go there anymore.") The game is good. I'm just past the running/jumping/timed puzzle thing as I get older and my hands less dexterous.

I haven't downloaded Portal yet, but will definitely give it a go.

I have to say that HL2 is one of the best games I've ever played, hands down. In my second play through the game I'm running along the coast in my car and am still gobsmacked at the scenery/graphics. I'm better at controlling the vehicle so I can cruise along at a fair clip and just enjoy the view. This is my favourite segment -- especially the Bridge. The first time I saw that I just about fell off my chair. What a wonder.

The detail is extraordinary. Even the little abandoned houses along the way ring true, with their rusty metal roofs and faded paint, stained and missing tiles and obsolete kitchen appliances.

The segment with the car and the bridge is my favorite part too. You describe it well. The bridge was amazing.
