Half Life is a perfect 10, but this isn't quite HL

Sure, the story is still there, and it looks just as good, but this port to console just doesn't work. I'm still hoping that they will re-release onto the 360 with the source engine and all expansions. I would buy that.
This game may possibly be the second best game that I have ever played. (The first best being Resident Evil 4, I have not played Half-Life 2 yet) There is plenty of action and scary scenes in the game. Many times things popped up out of no where or from behind me and scared me! The game is very gory but I like these kinds of games. This game has a fantastic aiming system and game play. The graphics are very good for a port from the PC. Sound is pretty good too for that matter. I would definitely recommend the port of this game over the PC version because the loading time is shorter in the port than on the PC. (I have also played the PC version) This is one fantastic game! The only things that it is missing is graphics, the graphics could have been better but this is still one heck of a game. I am a big fan of horror style games and I am telling you this game is a must play!

O.K., There was a lot of hype about this game and Half-Life 2. So, I rented #1 and it blows. 15 min or more before you get to shoot an alien. Graphics are weaksauce. Plot is maybe cool. Auto-Aim? I do even know what to say about this one... I am sure Half-Life 2 is dope but, skip this.
