I finished Half-Life 2: Episode 2 last night. It felt too short, though I think that's because it was a lot more battle-intense than previous installments. There was a boss battle at the end that I didn't recognize as such until it was over-- the guys at Valve are good at hiding stuff like that-- and there was very little in the way of puzzle-solving stuff.

The physics in the game are amazing. There's a cutscene in the beginning that has a sort of hyperreal movie quality that's just chilling, and the facial expressions are quite expressive: there is one scene where Alyx is gently mocking one of the scientists, and she gets this silly half-grin that looks freakin' real.

And she has a great ass.

This pic doesn't do it justice.

Everything's cranked up a notch from previous installments, subtle but there.

And there's a new creature to fight. Hunters. Sonofabitch.

There will only be one more episode in the HL2 episode trilogy. Hopefully after that there will be a HL3.

It's involving.
