The most unfortunately short sequel of all time. Episode One takes many of the best parts of Half Life 2 and distills them to their essential core, giving you one hell of a three-ish hour journey. Valve really learned a lot of lessons between the previous game and this one, but it cuts itself incredibly short. The first time I played through this, way back when, I was actually really mad when everything suddenly came to a close before it even felt like it started. Considering that it is easy to get 15 or so hours out of the first game, this was a huge kick to the stomach... but it was still fun.
This game is like listening to Stairway to Heaven and cutting it off before the guitar solo. I mean, it's awesome, but... why stop it there?
With the added bonus of being able to hop to Episode 2 right away, it isn't so bad... but still.
