Half-Life 2: Episode Two

The Orange Box cover Every now and then a perfect game comes along. Half-Life 2: Episode Two is such a perfect game. Excellent graphics, an even better physics engine and an intriguing story line makes Episode Two a worthy addition to the, at least so far, perfect Half-Life 2 game series.

Not surprisingly, you begin Episode Two where Episode One left off. In a classic Half-Life game start, all your gear is gone and you’re stuck. Of course you’re able to get out of the sticky situation rather quickly or it would have been a very short game. Thanks to the incredible level design and atmosphere created by Valve in Episode Two, you sometimes just want to run back to where you started, where you could see the sun and there was no monsters.

It’s hard to write about Half-Life 2: Episode Two without spoiling anything. I just recommend that you play the game.
