Trivia

Many gamers were frustrated when they learned that they would have to activate the title through Valve's "Steam" game distribution system (by registering an account and entering the game's CD key) before they could play, as an anti-piracy measure. When game was released, there were so many attempts to sign on to accomplish this process that the system slowed down dramatically, occasionally resulting in lengthy delays before the game could be played.

G-Man: Rise and shine, Mister Freeman. Rise and... shine. Not that I... wish to imply you have been sleeping on the job. No one is more deserving of a rest, and all the effort in the world would have gone to waste until... well, let's just say your hour has... come again.
G-Man: The right man in the wrong place can make all the difference in the world. So, wake up, Mister Freeman. Wake up and... *smell the ashes*...

Oh god my neck hurts!
5 December 2005 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

It should be from playing this game 24 hours a day for a week! Rise and shine fellow gamer, rise and shine. Not that I wish to imply you have not been paying attention so far, no one than you is more deserving of a rest after reading a couple of lines of my writing. The game is so very good! Take a look in the corner you'll see a couple of barrels that look like they can be moved. They can be! All debris and graphics are both top notch! Everything acts the way it should do when it hits the floor. Characters are super duper. And not only in character but the facial animation is the best I've ever seen! And the story have taken the most unbelievable turn. You can only play to find out! So pick up your crowbar and start knocking in heads!

10/10
