What cool features does Half-Life have on the PS2 actually? Did it had some neat stuff like more story explanations or what?

No, just the same game, with better models (you can get a patch for this with Blue Shift).

It features a Co-op mode called Decay where you play as Collette Green and Gina Cross (that hologram woman) - it tells you a bit more about the story like why you launched that rocket, etc.

It's actually pretty damn good. The models are better than the HD pack (Barney has actual eyes as well as the scientists) although you can get even better ones from HIT which I work for.

As for the PS2 version; it features a coop scenario, as James mentioned, which spans over ten separate maps, where you play two female scientists.

Ah, yes I remember that. :) One had a green HEV suit and the other a blue one if I am right. :)

Texture quality is a little low throughout the game, compared to the PC version, but that doesn't bothers me much. There are two bonus modes included besides the main game, all with an easy-to-navigate menu and comfortable controls - so it's a good deal, IMO.

I always thought it looked a bit better to me than the original PC version, might be because of the limited resolution of the TV gives you the impression of hi-res textures.

The Decay is fun, but I still haven't been able to finish of the last level (it's so goddamn hard! :angry:) with my friends. The controls are sleek and the game runs smoothly apart from few very rare slowdowns. Even if you have played the original game through many times, it's still a good bargain if you manage to find it around ten euros.

Makes me want to play the singleplay campaign through again, it's just so easy to insert the CD and play ^_^
