Although it wasnt as long as the original HL, HL2 rocked totally. I mean, u can pick a toilet and throw it at someone at break neck speeds, now where else can u do that? Weapons might not have been as good either (misses tau cannon and the little bug thingies) But u have the gravity gun which rocks on a black sabbath scale, crossbow is a million times better this time round too. Not to mention graphics, physics, sound, AI etc. Oh and the mysterious G-Man popping up in places where u wouldnt expect is well cool. There will be a sequal to this sequal but if they wanted a cash in on the game, this would have been released years ago.
