i suppose its a good thing because it prevents addiction and over playing.

we need to setup a formal way to help with the puzzles. i keep getting stuck at different places.
I find the game making me queasy too, reading the HL2 steam forum lots of other people are getting headaches or feeling sick also.
Same here

Actually puked into the toilet cause of this game, which was a first.

On Hard:

Enemies take more hits to kill
Enemies hits take more
Enemies seem to have stronger reflexes after spotting you
I think Enemies might hide more and run at you less
There are more enemies
They have better accuracy

I don't see how the game can make you fell sick. Nothing wrong here.

I swear, people don't know how to play a good game, especially HL2. Go everywhere you can in the game if you're stuck.If something doesn't work try something else. If that doesn't work then keep trying something different.

You must be at a different area than I originally suspected, in which case, you're nowhere near the end.

Perhaps a screenshot of your location would help.

Same here... the Dog sequences were great to watch. Not only did they look awesome, but they were truely entertaining. Pretty amazing for a video game.

It thought I was the only one! I had a real uncomfortable time driving the hovercraft. Maybe all the spinning and fast moving craft is the cause

I love catching the Manhacks and using them as chainsaws. Fun fun.

Reflect all also reflects moving parts like charachters, vehicles, barrels etc.
