Half-Life 2: Episode One reviews ( 5 )

This game is just as good as Half Life 2 - just a bit short, but it was fairly priced. I think if you are buying it for the plot of half life, it is a must as it solves and opens up new questions about all sorts of things. You also get Alyx as a sidekick and she isn't too overpowered or underpowered against enemies, and finally there has been graphical updates like HDR.

Half-Life, Half-Life 2...quite possibly the best FPS games ever created. Episode One, is just more of the same fantastic game. Plus the added bonus of playing along side Alyx with superb AI. And added bad humor :p

It was short but sweet. Using the flashlight to such an extent was sometimes exasperating, but the new sceanrios were good, as well as the puzzle elements. Seeing Alyx use a shotgun was great, and her invincibility was appreciated despite how strange it was. Great job on the Zombine voice-overs.

I liked it more than Half-Life 2. It felt more focused, without any tedious and unnecessary gameplay moments. I also found the graphics considerably better. The negative side is the game is even more linear, stuffed with scripted scenes. At the end, I think this is a more polished game than the original, although pretty short. PS: Alyx is hot

This wasn't too well received by fans, mainly due to its length and the fact that it's all setup and no payoff. The concept of episodic gaming was pretty new at the time. The low price now, and the fact that you can play Episode Two right after if you like, means these aren’t big problems. As I said, it’s not bad, but it’s also not great. Maybe it’s just because I’m comparing it to the legendary Half-Life 2, but something is lacking. On the surface at least, there’s very little that's new here. Most levels feel like they might have been abandoned during HL2’s development, and then adjusted slightly for this Episode (though I’m not saying that’s actually the case). No new locations, just new areas of locations we’ve already been in. No new weapons. There’s hardly even any new assets. There’s one new enemy... But, that’s it. This episode has a focus on Alyx, her character development, and teamwork with her. They succeeded at that, and her AI is a lot better than the normal friendly NPCs. Or at the very least, she isn’t a burden. Since she’s such a great character, it’s a welcome change to go through game alongside her. It also took a darker tone (and darker levels in the literal sense) than HL2, which was originally supposed to be a darker game, and they were probably trying to explore that a little with this episode. So there are new things here, there’s just not a lot of substance to it. Still, its 3-4 hours of your time, and it leads into the fantastic Episode Two. It's a perfectly adequate game, it's just not a very adequate follow-up to Half-Life 2.
