Half-Life 2 episode 2 is an expansion pack to the popular PC game Half-Life 2. This game comes packaged with the "Orange Box" collection for $50 and is a nice little game.

I feel this game is very short. The game continues the story of Half-Life 2 but that is the only role it fulfills. It should be no surprise that the game is short and has nothing new in terms of playability or features since it's meant to be a simple expansion pack, but I still feel let down by the lazy level creation for this game. It utilizes the same principles in the original Half-Life 2 game, including the often-used gravity gun that manipulates the game's physics engine. It's more of the same-old, same-old. You should badguys with your trustworthy gravity gun, crowbar, and bunch of other guns.

Play this game only if you want to learn more about the HL2 storyline. If you are playing this game for its gameplay, you will be let down.
