Overview:
Half-Life 2 is a first-person shooter which takes place some time after the events of Half-Life. As Morgan Freeman, the protagonist of the original Half-Life, you enter a place called City 17. There you meet some old friends and, as far as I can tell, your job is to save the world.

Having played about twelve percent of the game, I can say that I really enjoy Half-Life 2. From the graphics to the story-telling, Half-Life 2 does everything well and stands to symbolize gaming at its best.

[20150203 Edit]
Today I played some Half-Life 2 for the first time.

I played for an hour and stopped somewhere in the river canal (Route Canal - Chapter 3).


Thus far I've faced cops (Civil Protection forces), those ceiling creatures (Barnacles), and an annoying helicopter (Hunter-Chopper).

Thankfully, the game provides a healthy supply of health and energy.


Overall, the game's graphics are a big improvement over Half-Life.

I won't be able to comment on the game's story yet, except that the game certainly pays attention to the details.


Unfortunately, due to a combination of my camera movement and what I ate prior to playing, I felt a little woozy after the game.
