    The inconsistent framerate and lack of visual splendor are compromises we all expected with this conversion, but the load times are insufferable. [Dec 2005, p.182]

The engine by theValve original creation had enormous critic scores, rabid fan base, and one of the most important games in the history ever.

Half-Life is a masterpiece with few flaws. Full Review »
