    Why did you choose the game?
    Should extra episodes better had been part of the main game?
    2.5?

    No no no, don't get me wrong. I love it. But the first one (and its mods) made my childhood special and is in my opinion one of the most groundbreaking games in the history.
    The amount of memories I have playing that game is just wow...I actually still play original CS at least once every week :D

    You funny man, I barely get through buying groceries in the local store with my conversational skills, let alone do an interview.

    I sadly was not lucky enough to grow up with it. I eventually got to experience the first one on the PS2. I loved it. Although, I never beat it. The PS2 had a notorious glitch where Gonarch would not drop down to the final section of his fight. Because of that, I could never beat it. I didn't have any save backups that would allow me to restart the fight. :glare:

    Yeah it didn't, I just saw a person a long time ago playing it on his dreamcast maybe via homebrew or something. Just wondering if anybody else did.

    If you can find the iso/rom and if you actually have a Dreamcast, you would be able to play it quite easily. (I could be wrong ->) The Dreamcast allowed users to play CD's on it. Using a specific exploit, you could burn a game on a disk and play it on the Dreamcast.

    Although the PS2 version had some MASSIVE BUGS (no joke) it did have a cool split screen campaign mode called "Half Life Decay" and a "Head to Head" Versus mode. It was pretty cool.
    The multiplayer campaign however is BRUTAL though.

    Has it grown good with the time?
    Replay value?

    I did like you could play it solo, I think select to switch charecters and it had usb keyboard + mouse support.

    Soooooo...on a scale of 1/10, how disappointed are you that HL3 will never release ?
    is the game as good as everyone says it is ?
