It does? i have heard great things about it.
Get Half-Life 1. Don't listen to anyone else, Half-Life 1 is the better game.

But i thought the physics and graphics in Half-Life 2 were better.

Then get Half-Life Source. It's Half-Life 1... but on the Source engine.

I will think about it. Thanks for the help guys!

I definitely advise getting this game, but even more-so advise that you play Half-Life 1 BEFORE this one, you will get what is going on much more easily and you will get correlations to the first game throughout Half-Life 2 and its episodes.

It's just overall a better experience if you play HL1 first, hands-down.

Depends what you like. If you like story-driven first person shooters, get it. If not, don't

Ok. If anyone has a coupon for both half lifes, or know someone who does, please let me know. I would be willing to trade.
Thanks!

If you're like me, and love games that include physics, puzzle, action, adventure, drama, suspense, and lots of other things... I recommend buying all HL2 related games (that includes hl2 and most other source games).

ok. yeah, i already have portal 2 (LOVE IT!) and i also got Estranged Act 1. That uses the source engine. Its really fun if you haven't tried it out.

No u should get Half life 2 it has better graphics and new creatures i got it and i already give it 3 stars its an awesome game. and it dosent lag at all it just says loading for 2 secs on mac and same with pc
I don't want to sound like a broken record but for the love of God, get Half-Life 1 (or source whichever). Most people jump straight to Half-Life 2 because it has better graphics and physics, while completely ignoring the first game. Plus HL2 makes some references to the first game that you won't get.
