Half-Life combines the visceral action of legendary action games like Doom with great storytelling in the tradition of Stephen King. Named "Best PC Game" in the Best of E3 Show Awards from Unified Gamers Online, Half-Life blends action, drama, and adventure with stunning technology to create a frighteningly realistic world where players need to think smart to survive.
Throughout the game, both friends and foes behave in sophisticated and unpredictable ways, a result of Half-Life's powerful and innovative artificial intelligence. The intensity of the game also reflects the strong storyline, created by award-winning horror novelist Marc Laidlaw. Of course there's also a variety of exciting multiplayer scenarios, and an easy-to-use interface that will have you connected to the game of your choice in just seconds.
"Half-Life restored my faith in gaming."
"A dizzying marriage of non-stop action and narrative."
"Oh. My. God!"
