"Love the Game - Hate Steam"4.0 starson by Vanz76
Pros: Amazing Graphics
Cons: Steaming Pile
Summary: Graphically this is the greatest game made to date. The world of HL2 is very well done and it is easy to lose yourself in the game. The steam online authentication was painful with my DSL line acting up. I don't appreciate having big brother looking over my shoulder while I am trying to play a game I bought for more than $50. However, once the game loaded it was truly amazing. The Ravenhome section was excellent and made me jump out of my chair a few times. The story was good but the ending was anticlimatic. Overall the game will rank as a standout in the same way the original game did.
