Half-Life 2: Episode One review

Reviewed July 05, 2008

Mike Suskie says: "If one thing really makes Episode One worth playing, itís the connection to Alyx that starts thin but grows progressively stronger before the gameís three hours are up. In Half-Life 2, she was little more than a forgettable supporting character. In this episode, sheís at your side for the entire game, and provides both a surprising amount of battle support (itís virtually impossible for her to die, so keeping her alive isnít a concern) and a pleasant boost in morale. The Half-Life series has you doing a lot of cool things, so itís nice that someone is finally acknowledging your heroics."

bigcj34 says: "Half Life 2 Episode One is the next instalment of the Half-Life series, arguably the backbone of the FPS genre, and after the 1998 blockbuster and the successful sequel 6 years later, Valve decided to release Half Life 3 in three shorter episodic chunks to make release times faster. That means you donít have to wait until 2022 to learn about the conclusion to the story. "
