Half-Life 2: Lost Coast
Half-Life 2: Lost Coast is an add-on level for Half-Life 2. It was made by Valve and released for Windows in 2005. The level was originally meant to be included in Highway 17 portion of Half-Life 2, but was scrapped during production, and later revamped to showcase several of the new (at the time) features the Source Engine which would be included in the still-being-developed Half-Life 2: Episode One.
You play Gordon Freeman who much climb up the side of a coastal cliff to an old church where the Combine has built an artillery launcher. You must knock it out of commission, but it's defended by soldiers and head crabs.
I received this game as a gift from my friend Cody who bought me a complete package of all the Half-Life 2 games, to which I am very grateful.
I own this game and have beaten it.
- Overall: 6/10
- Best Version: Windows
- The various improvements to the engine are pretty awesome.
- The developer's commentary is really cool, I wish more games did this.
- The level is fun and challenging.
- The game is very short, what with being simply an add-on.
