Developed by Valve Corporation, it was initially released on November 16, 2004, following a protracted five-year, $40 million development cycle, during which a substantial part of the project was leaked and distributed on the Internet.
Good game with a captivating story and kinda average gameplay. Despite being good, I felt that some missions were too long and too repetitive, which made me a little tired of it. Also, some puzzles are not really that fun to find the solution, it just gets annoying.
But the finale did bring me some interest in the story again and I want to know more about it.
Oh... and I played it for the first time in 2020.
Totally blind run.
Was inspired to play this after the announcement of HLVR. I first played it five years ago and thought it was really boring. I dropped it before reaching the boat segment.
Playing it now I enjoy it much more. So much variety in locations and gameplay. At least for the first half. Once you return to City 17 in the later half of the game its really boring. Luckily it picks up again with a good finale in the citadel.
