I found the look and feel landscape, the lighting and the chopper battle to be right up my alley. I think trying to explain why I liked it so much would be like trying to explain Minecraft's appeal to a Renaissance painter.lunncal said:Ok, now I'm intrigued. I do not understand what you could possibly enjoy about that boat level. This isn't an insult, it's just that I honestly found nothing enjoyable within that level, and I really want to know what you, and presumably others did enjoy about it. I understand why people enjoyed the game as a whole, though I definitely did not. I just hated that boat level with a passion.shameduser said:I loved the hell out off the boat level. In fact, I loved the every moment of Half-Life 1, it's expansions, Half-Life 2 and the episodes.lunncal said:Wait until you get to the boat section: longest, most incredibly boring time I have ever spent with a game. I just kept telling myself that this MUST be the end, but no, it just carried on. Then you get a SECOND boat level, this time with a gun on the boat.
I forced myself through it, and was eventually awarded with a brief moment of controlling some cool sand creatures with a weird goo ball, the one fun moment I had with the game.
To be followed by the boat level all over again, except with a car.
DO NOT try to force yourself through the game because of all the hype. It DOES NOT get better.
So, please tell me, what was good about the Boat level(s)?
