Recommended Posts

Amazing reviews as expected from Valve and Half-Life.

 

OpenCritic: 92

  • Half-Life: Alyx has set a new bar for VR in interactivity, detail, and level design, showing what can happen when a world-class developer goes all-in on the new frontier of technology.
  • With old friends, new enemies, and an exciting story, revisiting City 17 in VR is a thrill in Half-Life: Alyx.
  • City 17 provides the setting for a VR adventure filled with brilliant detailing.
  • Not just a Half-Life game, but an invitation to live in its world.
  • The dense campaign never lets up with surprising reveals, new enemies, and witty dialogue to carry you through the exciting journey
  • Half-Life: Alyx is a tremendous VR experience that captures and elevates what makes the series special.
  • Valve has succeeded at just about every goal it must have had for this project. The only thing left is whether hardcore fans will be willing to buy, and use, a virtual reality headset in order to learn what happens next in the world of Half-Life.
  • The good news is that those who do will experience what is likely the best VR game released to date.
  • Half-Life: Alyx reaches some astoundingly high heights while also managing to be both too ambitious and too conservative for its own good.
  • Half-Life: Alyx is billed as a VR return to the series, and that's exactly what it delivers. It does what Half-Life has historically done well, and without the clouding of nostalgia or unhelpful notions of what constitutes "revolutionary" design, it ranks alongside Half-Life 2.
  • Half-Life: Alyx is an accomplishment no matter which way you spin it.

Also guy, is half life 2 : Orange  box worth buying from steam? I mean does it hold up well in terms of visuals /performance? Or is it just too dated now?

 

Check out Black Mesa, it's a half life spinoff and quite a good one.

It's been a while since I've played HL2 but looking at screenshots and videos, I think the visuals still hold up. There might be a few dated gameplay mechanics but nothing too major.

You should definitely check them out.

 

Also, HL2 and its two episodes are currently free to play on steam for 3 more days. See if you can make use of it :P
