Half-Life 2
Game Profile
Description

Half-Life 2 for the Xbox is the entire, award-winning, single player game tuned and optimized by Valve exclusively for Xbox. Featuring all of the advanced AI, stunning graphics, and physical gameplay of the PC version, Half-Life 2 for Xbox not only delivers an uncompromised console adaptation of the game, it delivers with enhanced special effects and graphics – creating what IGN calls the "number one Xbox prospect for the year." The gameplay begins by taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original, and adding startling new realism and responsiveness, Half-Life 2 opens the door to a world where the player's presence affects everything around him, from the physical environment to the behaviors - even the emotions - of both friends and enemies.
