Well, I wasn’t expecting to complete it tonight, but the last two chapters were very short and so I did. Erm, hurrah!
I won’t spoil it for anyone else who hasn’t played it yet, but the last few hours were mostly filled with huge battles with striders and gunships, and hordes of baddies. Luckily, you’re accompanied by a team of other people for much of it, until you reach the Citadel, anyway.
The end boss was a bit easy, although I did die on him once. And the ending clearly leaves everything wide open again. At least I know there’s Episodes One and Two to follow!
Overall then… really good. As I said before, however, it isn’t a proper sequel to Half-Life, and there have been so many FPS alien invasion games in recent years that even the story isn’t as great as it could be, but if you just take it for what it is, then you won’t mind. 4/5, probably.
