    I just started chapter nine today. I hope to finish it by morning.
    :) It's a really awesome game but almost feels like it's too short.

    I thought it was short as well, but look back at what you have done, there is more than it seems

    I'm 20 minutes into the game. Haven't had time to put much time into it.

    Nah, it doesn't require a whole lot of effort to beat. I think that's where Halo 2 might be a little superior since it's a real challenge to get through on Legendary playing by yourself.

    Keep going. I was on Highway 17 about 3-4 hours ago.

    I've just got to the 'Follow Freeman' chapter which basically appears to be
    a Snipers alley that you have to get through to help Barney

    I Did It!!!

    :D WooHoo :D Finished It.
    It's rare for me to play a game to the end, but this one passed the grade ;)

    What am I gonna do now? Go out in the evening, down to the pub, cinema, possibly go to the gym?

    Nah! Start HL2 again on a harder level :D

    There isn't much of a replay value to it. I tried, but after you figure out the puzzles and what not, it goes by way too fast, even on hard.

    It was a great game first time through. Sucks there is no multiplayer, and no I do not consider CS:S to be a multiplayer for HL2. No matter how you look at it, its multiplayer for HL1, just a little "prettier".

    As far as HL3: http://gamesradar.msn.co.uk/news/default.asp?pagetypeid=2&articleid=29117&subsectionid=1589

    Stuck on Follow Freeman

    Seems to be people here who have finished HL2 - you may be able to help! I'm stuck on Follow Freeman. It's where Barney asks you to lob a couple of grenades to dispose of the snipers. I've killed everything I can find and he just sits there motionless. I have tried starting the level from the beginning as I thought the game itself was malfunctioning, but it made no difference. I can't find anyone shooting at all - I've killed all the snipers I can see. Am I missing something?

    Anyone remember Max Payne 2? Same thing happened. It was a great game, widely awaited game. But beatable in one sitting easily. I beat it in under 8 hours the first time I played. One sitting, no bathroom breaks. lol

    I'm holding off on HL2 to get the general response. Seems like it's a good game.
