In terms of presentation, detail, atmosphere, and immersion, Half-Life 2 is simply unsurpassed in its level of creative achievement… Though it’s primarily a first-person shooter, Half-Life 2 has varied gameplay ambitions, all of which it fulfils with complete conviction and an almost arrogant ease
Half-Life 2 has impeccable style, an unrivalled elegance, and a frighteningly realistic aesthetic that no other game can even attempt to rival… Discussion of the following statement is not an option; it’s a statement of fact, not opinion. Half-Life 2 is not only the best Xbox game of 2005, it’s also the best console game—ever. Overall Score : 9.7.
