I never played Half-Lif in the time that it was released... and after hearing my friend telling for 2 or 3 years saying I shlould play this, I decided to give a shot. Oh boy.
I'm not a huge fan of shooter games, but this FPS was diferente from everything that I've played before. It was creep, but in the same time, was fun to shoot the scientist just to hear they screaming. Think in a FPS? Oh yeah, bosses that were more like huge action puzzles. And twists.. many of them, I never thought that my worst enemies woul be... humans (except for the last part, that is also AWESOME). And the las thing that amazed me was the "real time" story, where you don't watch things happening, but you are actually a part and a player even while the plot is developing.
I'm very grateful for Gaben to have made this game, and now I'm in panic trying to get a better PC (or console) in wich I can play the sequences. Except for Episode 3, obviously.
