HL2 is Like an Action/Chase Film
I am playing both HL games for the first time, the first, which I haven't beat yet is like a scientific mystery, I'm blasting everything in sight but it feels like there is a conspiracy or some bigger picture to solve. Good game but looks primitive, lol. HL2 so far feels like an action movie with chase sequences and an escape from City 17 vibe. I'm still not sure why they are after me or what I even did but I guess like crazy dude said in the beginning, Freeman just always shows up at the wrong time.
A lil disappointed though, the early game had a Twilight Zone feel with mind control, totalitarian regime, depressed people sleepwalking through their day but all that disappeared soon as the shooting began. I would of liked to see more of the city life before the "action movie" kicked in...but maybe things will slowdown a bit and some story will develop
