Reception

Half-Life 2’s public reception was amazingly positive in a lot of reviews, and it had over 6.5 million sales as of 2008. But this does not include Steam purchases, these transactions are putting the estimate at 9 million sales of Half Life 2 alone.

Metacritic ranked Half Life 2 a astonishing 96 out of 100, it is the highest game ever rated for PC on the network.



Half-Life 2 earned more then 39 Game of the Year awards, including Overall Game of the Year at IGN, GameSpot’s Reader’s Choice — PC Game of the Year Award and Game of the Year from The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences.

Guinness World Records awarded Half-Life 2 the world record for "Highest Rated Shooter by PC Gamer Magazine" in 2008.

  5. Still one of my favourite games... I really should finish Episode 2, before Episode 3 comes out... So that puts it last on the list of "Games I need to finish. NOW."

    I'm working on writing something about why Valve is one of the best developers, actually. Check back on my blog for when it's done.
