Half-Life 2: Episode Two ReviewPosted on 2007-10-11 12:43:39 by Thomas De Maesschalck
Perhaps the greatest accolade to lay on Episode Two at this point is for me to again acknowledge that I was wrong to bitch about the delays in the episodes. Episode Two was worth the wait, worth every second of it.
With a compelling story which is excellently told, a fantastic and proven gameplay mechanic and an utterly enthralling way of communicating with the player via digital actors like Alyx, Episode Two is one of my favourite games ever. That’s not an expression I come to lightly.
You have to go play it and you have to go play it soon, but take my advice and make sure that you play it in as few separate sittings as possible. This isn’t the type of game you should dip in and out of for five minutes at a time, though you easily could. This is the type of game you should spend some serious time on, exploring the world that Valve has delicately crafted for you.
