Am I the only one that didn't like Episode 1?
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Half-Life 2 and Episode 2. They're some of the best games I've ever played. But Episode 1 just didn't feel right... not much happened plot-wise, there were a lot more puzzle areas that seemed forced. Also the escort part at the end. Not that it was particularly hard, it's just that escort missions always get on my nerves. The boss fight was kind of anticlimatic too.

Episode 1 was alright, but Episode 2 made up for all the shortfalls of Episode 1. But I will have to say that i didn't like the Strider/Hunter battle in Episode 2.

I liked the beginning, but the rest was OK in Episode 1

dark matter stabilization in ep1 was my favorite part of the game. very detailed and Combine-y.

Hated the underground maps and the zombie fight in the dark. That ♥♥♥♥ is always too stressful.

I tend to think about it as a transition from HL2 to Ep2. And it wasn't that bad, it's just that the comparison with masterpieces like HL2 or Ep2 doesn't make it justice.
Plus, the amazingly beautiful core makes it worth.
Also it was entertaining to get the "The One Free Bullet" achievement.

Probably because it is too short, i finished it like in 2-3 hours,
compared to the 7-8 hours of Half-Life 2.

You aren't alone. I don't like Half-Life 2 Episode 1, but HL2 and HL2 Episode 2 were great games...

Haha, me too. It even took several tries with noclip and god mode on.

The last chapter in Episode One is quite memorable; escorting and then running for your life. I thought it was great.

I think that Episode one helps extend the cut of point of the story... seeing how long it's been and still no Half-Life 3. I liked Episode one, and Episode two, had mainly you driving alyx like a choufer or in a cave. I still had a fun experience and enjoy both.

there's a trick i found on a guide on how to kill hunters fast in the White Forest battle. if you look around, there are alot of tree trunks lying around. when a hunter prepares to shoot it's exploding arrows, grab a trunk with the gravity gun and the arrows will stuck on it. then toss the trunk back at the hunter, which will explode on impact, killing the hunter. there's even an achievement for that.
dealing with hunters is all about precision and reflexes, because they are fast and always on the move. but they're not much resistant to attack. three bullets on the magnum (?) kill a hunter, but best way is to kill them with their own ammo, as described above.

(edit: all this applies on easy difficulty.)
