Given our kin-ship with HalfLife 2, here is a separate forum to discuss anything related to HalfLife 2 and the various Mods out there (eg, Gary Mod, Zombie mod etc)

I thought HL2 was great, I was on track for finishing it within maybe a few weeks. Just playing here and there. Then a friend told me i had to try CSS so i thought i would give it a go and thats what stopped me finishing it :cry:

i thought hl2 was amazing when i played it the first time. after reading lots of posts by people saying the boat/buggy sections were boring i had a wee think about why they thought that. when i played hl2, i didn't go slowly. the boat chase part took only about 20-30 mins as i just sped through (as i imagine thats how gordon would travel through that part. trying to outrun the combine) the same with the buggy section, although that was a bit longer and a little tedious. i did find some of the more enjoyable parts of the game came after the buggy section. the pace of the game really picked up too and the story started to kick in a lot more.

however, i finished it and then thought i would try this "cs thingy" you get with hl2. only been back to hl2 twice and tbh i only get about 3 chapters through and i'm bored. in retrospect i think hl2 had the wow factor with how impressive it looked (my gf commented on how real it looked)

i'm with you though jp, it has no hold for me. i'm looking forward to getting my hands on cod2, i've played through the demo many times on veteren. looking forward to the challenge.

OMG

p.s. i never (and still haven't) played hl1 so i'm not a valve fanboy.

p.p.s doom 3 was too dark for its own good. they should have just made the walls black :?

You are missing out then HL was truly amazing and held my attention better than HL2 did, but i still blame that on css, also i thought doom 3 was pretty fun. I wouldnt buy it i only played it at a friends but it was a laugh.
