Those cats at Valve are at it again. Coming off the Mac debut of their critically acclaim puzzle solver Portal, Vavle are following up with a release of their equally acclaimed first person shooter Half-Life 2.
Set in a bleak, dystopian future where Combine rule is law, Half-Life 2 graced our computer screens in 2004, putting us back in the shoes of the oh-so-silent theoretical physicist Gordon Freeman as he churned through zombies, monsters, and alien soldiers, with some physics puzzles thrown in for good measure.
Upon release Half-Life 2 earned over 40 'Game of the Year' awards, and still ranks as one of the highest rated games of all time.
Though its two episodic sequels are not included, this nugget of gaming gold will tomorrow see a release across Steam for all Mac hardware. Always one to poke a bit of fun, Valve has built a special Half-Life 2 Mac release trailer that harkens back to Apple's 1984 commercial. Watch, and enjoy.
