With 3D cinemas commonplace, and 3D television become an increasingly affordable option, 3D gaming was never going to be far behind. And it is the Playstation 3 that is first to jump on the bandwagon, with three complete games already available, and a further 50 expected in the coming year.

Half-Life 2 Review

The third game I bought for my Xbox 360 is actually a collection of 5 games made by a company called Valve. The Orange Box is what it’s called and it retails for about $20. The collection of games are: Half-Life 2, Half-Life-2: Episode 1, Half-Life 2: Episode 2, Portal and Team Fortress 2. However, today I am going to be focusing on just one, Half-Life 2.

First, the gameplay and the storyline are¬†absolutely¬†fantastic. You don’t really have any type of map or guide to go through the game. You’re on your own. The only icons on the screen are to show your health and what weapons you can select from. You start out with just your fists as a weapon, but you eventually get a crowbar and guns as you move further in the game. The storyline is very simple, but complex. You have arrived at City 17 to see a scientist about some new machine he built. The Combine guards are terrorizing all the people of City 17 and your objective is to escape once you see the scientist. It is a pretty long game, averaged out around 15 hours.
