    Half Life worth a purchase???

    I've never played half life, but i do have unreal tournament and Q3A. Would it be worth a purchase even after being out for, what, 2 years?

    Thanks

    Half-life is probably the best game I have ever purchased. Incredible graphics and realism.

    Buy it now and buy it fast (the addon pack too)!!!

    Sorry guys, but IMO Half Life was one of the most over-hyped games ever.

    I prefer Q3, UT, DR2, Ground Control, HomeWorld and Tib Sun.

    You should definetly get the game. The one player is extensive and the multiplayer is fun. You should also download the counterstrike multiplayer for it.

    But of course if you want the multiplayer part of it. Nothing beats UT and Q3a.
