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)!!!

You won't be sorry...

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.

No...I got fed up with the part where you have to do stoopid pixel perfect jumps across some big empty room.

I payed $40 for it shortly after it came out, and I'd pay that much for it even today if I had to. The multiplayer mods for it are far more enjoyable than anything UT or Q3 has to offer, IMHO.

I also thought Half-Life was WAY overrated... I LOVED it for the the first hour I played it... but it grew so tiresome and annoying so quickly, that it ranks among the very few games I've ever bought that I didn't finish... it was wonderful out of the gate, but it waned horribly after that...

...in the end, I was just annoyed and dismayed at the juvenile repetitive and predictable nature of it all.
