View Full Version : Is it worth it?

So, I just finished Half Life 2 and Half Life 2 Episode 1 (soon getting episode 2), and this is my first experience with Half Life, and I love it. So, my question is: Is it worth buying the original Half Life even after I've played Half Life 2? Thanks!

Yes. The graphics are dated but it's still an awesome game.

Agreed, and the awesomeness of the game will most likely make you forget the graphics anyways. Besides, the game doesn't involve a whole lot of character interaction or anything, so yep, it's one hell of a game buy.

I'd also suggest you procure the Blue Shift expansion, as it includes the Opposing Force expansion as well and both are splendid expansions to the game.

I personally like the original Half-Life and its expansion packs more. They had style.

I actually enjoyed the character interaction in HL2...it really drove the story along very well, and I learned to actually care about what happened to the characters (especially Alyx). Either way, I loved HL2 so much that I might have to get the original.
