Think Of Intelligent Techniques To Save The World From Alien Invasion

By Beatrice Tan

Saving the world under a terrifying situation where gamers should look for their own weapons as they go on with their journey is such a very big mission. It gives users the feel of being the super hero and a different kind of thrill. But here’s the catch, new weapons are prepared to be claimed at the middle of the game. Sounds awesome right?

What I really enjoy about this new version of Half- life is that the main character is still the same, Gordon Freeman, who has nothing in the very start of the game but eventually has the power to eliminate the aliens with his tactics. Most of the features are still of the same with the first version but what is exciting about this one is the plot that is well-enhanced. I really enjoy how good this game is because in every mission, level of difficulty in eliminating the enemies goes high. So gamers have to think of different techniques and of course use a variety of tools or weapons in completing the mission. I also noticed that graphics are improved; it is more realistic than the first one, and the intelligent special effects which I find appealing to gamers like me.

This game makes me more wise of being intelligent of coming up with different tactics. Everyone should give it a try.

Half-Life 2 is an action game in which you can play in a first-person shooter style and with a quite interesting storyline. It has more or less the same characteristics than the first version, Half-Life, but with a different plot.

Keeping its line according to the health system and some weapons, this game offers you the possibility of saving the world in a context where the aliens have occupied our planet. You won’t have anything at the beginning and you have to get every weapon you need by yourself.

What it is about

It starts more or less 20 years later than in the previous version. Half-Life 2 keeps the main character Gordon Freeman, who has been brought out of being in stasis. You will have to complete several missions from the first time you start it, but all of them with the intention of saving the world.

Don’t use the same tactic to your enemies because they won’t have the same qualities. You have to think which one fixes better and then try to eliminate them. Gordon can usually attack with his own weapons but in some cases you have to use other tools to finish with them.

On the other hand, it’s true that Half-Life 2 keeps its authenticity but it has added some new characteristics as Gravity Gun. This weapon can be acquired at the middle of the game and it works moving objects from the distance.

It’s quite different from the weapons that we’re used to see in the previous game. It’s also divided in fourteen chapters and most of them are based in Auckland City, in New Zealand. Half-Life 2 has 3D graphics to make it even more realistic.

Half-Life 2 Features

The main features of Half-Life 2 are the following:

  • PC first-person shooter game
  • New game engine called Source Engine
  • Advanced animation technology
  • Powerful special effects which bring realistic environments
  • Detailed physics properties of both objects and characters such as shape or weight
  • Wide range of enemies which require being approached with a different tactic

Other alternatives

In first-person shooter games the one which really stands out is Counter-Strike. On it, you can choose if you want to fight as a terrorist or as a counter-terrorist. Besides, you can select the mode in which you want to fight; Bomb Defusal, Assassination or Hostage Rescue.

However, if what really fascinates you is aliens’ invasion, you should try Alien Shooter Gold Pack. It’s a free game in which you will be provided with everything you need to eliminate the presence of the aliens from our world.


Half-Life 2 is a quite interesting first-person shooter game in which you have to think the strategy that fixes better to eliminate the aliens from our world. Try to use your own weapons and your imagination to achieve it.
