Ook Sharky Extreme heeft een review van Half-Life. Als we de review mogen geloven is dit echt een megavet spel:
Ordinarily, games that have been as hyped as Half-Life has been tend to fall short of the public's inflated expectations. After the release of Epic's Unreal and Ritual's SiN and the heart-crushing realization that they didn't live up to their hyped standards, we started fearing that the same fate would befall Half-Life. Earlier last month however, we were given the opportunity to play through Half-Life: Day One, an OEM demo which is bundled with Diamond's MX300 sound card, Guillemot's MaxiGamer Phoenix Banshee card and a few other pieces of hardware. The game didn't live up to the hype generated by two years of print and online coverage… it completely surpassed it. Does the full game continue the excellence provided by the demo? We'll say it right here: Hell yes, and then some. Read on to find out why Half-Life gets our coveted Game of the Year Award, and as Highlander's Duncan MacLeod so eloquently put it, "there can be only one".
