Half-Life 2 continues the story of Gordon Freeman, the scientist-turned-marine who managed to escape from the Black Mesa
Research Facility in Half-Life. In Half-Life 2, Gordon has accepted the G-Man's "offer" and become a government agent on Earth.
However, the Xen aliens, Combine soldiers, headcrabs, "ant lions," and other enemies threaten everything.
Gordon begins his quest in City 17 and, with the help of Eli and Alyx Vance, begins to unravel the mysteries behind the rapid
changes on Earth. Freeman also encounters gigantic spider-like monstrosities that tower over buildings, impale humans on sharp
spindly legs, and emit devastating blasts from their bodies -- "striders."
All the voice actors from Half-Life have returned to voice their characters in Half-Life 2. The physics engine has been updated to
include all objects within the game world; players will be able to shoot chairs to pieces, manipulate futuristic "gravity" guns, and
interact with objects in complicated ways. Several vehicles will be available during certain levels, and environments include City
17, some suburbs, a dry ocean bed, an icebreaking ship, and a jail.
This collector's edition of Half-Life 2 features a limited edition DVD-ROM version of the game and comes packaged with the
source codes for Counter-Strike and the original Half-Life, a T-shirt, and a Prima book with character information and artwork.
Editor's Note: Although Half-Life 2 is primarily a single-player game, a connection to the Internet is required to play it. Users must
set up an online "Steam" account, hosted by developer Valve, in order to unlock the game content they install from the disk(s).

From the Manufacturer: Half-Life 2 defines a new benchmark in gaming with startling realism and responsiveness. The intense,
real-time gameplay of Half-Life 2 is powered by Source, Valve’s new proprietary engine technology, which provides major
enhancements in character animation, artificial intelligence, graphics, and more. The sequel to Half-Life, one of the most
popular action games ever made, will feature the return of former Black Mesa research associate Gordon Freeman. In Half-Life 2,
Freeman can expect to encounter several characters from the previous game, including Barney the security guard and the
mysterious G-man, for whom Freeman now works. Freeman will also meet a new female character, Alyx, whose mother was
killed during the events of the original game.
