Summary

The closest to perfection any FPS game will ever get

The Good

Almost everything is good about this game, the storyline (it is NOT boring as some reviewers will argue, from a more educated point-of-view it is box office movie material which if it were a movie would clean out most of the awards on Oscar night), the graphics (a major leap forward over the original), the weapons, the monsters, I could go on, and on, and on. This truly is the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band of video gaming.

The Bad

The use of vehicles, such as the boat and the buggy, were OK, but the time spent using them was far too long and time consuming, time that could've been better spent shooting zombies and Combine soldiers.

The Bottom Line

Get it! You will not regret it! To paraphrase the legendary Jeremy Clarkson, it is comparable to rubbing a certain bee by-product onto a foxy English actress' abdominal region.
