    even for a reprint, HL2 still matches up with the new and improved FPS
    there's a different feel to this game
    the tension's a little different and the world more immersive
    I rarely feel like I'm disconnected from the gameworld

    I'm glad you bumped this Phi
    as I just finished off Episode One last night
    and got started on Episode Two
    each just as good as the original HL2

    I enjoyed the snot out of Episode One
    just when you think it's over it's not
    and Two feels different than One -closer to the original

    Bioshock was special ,no doubt ... but I don't think it was as Epic as HL2
    The Orange Box is a slick and polished package
    too bad it won game of the year a few years ago, as it could do it again

    I'm all done now. The Orange Box is really good. The Puzzle game on there was a bit of fun too. The difficulty ecscalates in the final puzzle. But it was a lot of fun. You feel as though you are seeking answers in that game and end up getting them.

    Also, I really liked the bubble play, where you get feedback from the developers as you replay the orange games. I thought that was cool. There was a lot of insight into game development there. I've never had that before. I liked it.
