Hi guys.
It's that time of year again - except this time I now have 32 years to reflect on.

I finished Half Life 2 the other night too so I'm back! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Doesn`t seem like HL2 is very long. But I guess it`s good?

HL2 is the best FPS I've ever played!
I was contantly going "wow" or "Aaagh!" There are some really scary bits! There were no stand-out moments to speak of because every step introduces something new and interesting.
But IMHO it was 1 or 2 chapters too short.

The best thing though is the Source engine.
I really look forward to seeing some of the MODs will will appear before too long.

I've not played it properly in a while, my mate spent ages playing it and got me miles into the game, and i cant go back on it now i don't think. Got me past Ravenholm though which is a pretty freaky place http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gifhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Half-Life 2 rocks (for an FPS http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif) and will be great in the future if Half-Life 1 is anything to go by.

RPG fans might want to check the new Vampire (bloodlines??) game as it uses the same source engine....

Happy bday dude!

HL2 was fantastic, but lacking in some ways-- the storyline was brilliant at the beginning but didn't really develop after chapter 1 or 2. Plus it was too short in my opinion.

Lol, yeah, HL2 was awesome. It's the first FPS I have ever finished, and actually enjoyed as well in the single player campaign.

It was way too short, though.

Those fast running zombie dudes that run up the walls in that ravenholm place were kinda freaky til I figured out how to kill them.


Great game, and I can't wait for the mods either.

Happy b-day buddy and many more.

HL2 seems pretty good I played a little on my roomies computer.

Actaully I've been under the impression thats its not really so short as much that everyone whos got it is a junkie and beats it in just a few hours...
