    Point to note though, it doesn't finish where the original Half-Life ended where you battle the giant floating baby (which I never managed to beat back in the day), but it's well worth it and you do get some funky music and credits as well as a welcome 'To be continued' message

    That's still to come (they're re-working Xen massively as it was originally meant to be in Half Life)

    It does help that I knew the original HL like the back of my hand though

    Been playing this the last week or so as well, in the brief spots of free time... and I never really played the original (I was young and foolish, forgive me) so it's been interesting to go through and see just how much game design has changed. I know this one is tweaked to modern sensibilities but it's still amazing how much more I get lost when compared to HL2, and how much more obvious the corridor you're funnelled down is.

    I still hate head crabs, though.

    Only played the first bit of it so far but noticed how much more atmospheric it is this time round... maybe because I'm playing it with gaming headphones and the proper soundtrack rather than timidly on standard PC speakers while the telly was on (those were the days!)

    I had been running around for about 10-15mins with some bloke who kept shooting crabs....when he got killed and I got to have the gun... 7 shots later and I was out of ammo....

    At this point, I noticed the crowbar jamming the door!

    I'm not sure what was worse....

    My cheering at having "old faithful" back, or the look on my 13yo stepson's face when he realised all I could do was bat things out the way with the bar....

    "Why isn't there more ammo?" came the plaintive cry!!!

    "Son, if you need more ammo, you ain't playing the game right" came the answer!!!
