About design and gameplay

The success of this franchise began with the first part of the game. Half-Life 2 even surpasses it. We can say that the second episode is the canon of the 3D Action genre.

The development of events takes place in the Black Mesa Corporation. A huge number of opponents against a small detachment of resistance, spectacular battles, ruthless murders – this is practically the real world in which the whole story is as believable as possible.

The main advantage is dynamics. The player will not be bored even for a second: either you solve puzzles, then you try to get out of the trouble alive, then you watch the plot whirlwinds. The episodes end exactly where it gets boring. This speaks of the jewelry endurance of the playing time.

Interactivity is lame. Well, what did you want from the 2004 year game? Nowadays of course you can interact with everything, carry it with you or use it as a weapon. But back there it wasn’t even impossible to break the computer monitor in game. Is this a significant drawback? Definitely not, because the most important is the impression.

Each time you get to the answers, they will slip through your fingers, forcing you to move forward towards research.

In general, the plot can be described as science fiction, and it won’t let you go till you complete the entire game.
