A great way to experience Half-Life 2 in VR with actual thought put into playability in a VR environment. Still a bit clunky, though adapting an 18 year old game to extremely recent technology will do that.

Thought it was an incredible experience enhancing the original, even if there are some clunky stuff here and there, but regardless of that the silent protagonist pov in VR works really well and makes the experience even better than it did before for me compared to normal HL2, and I can't wait to play Episode 1 and 2 in VR
it was peak like that gordon freeman-ing gman-ing etc .

Real fun to play Half Life 2 once again but finally have a vaguely different experience, even if reloading mid-combat is nightmarish.

Really cool experiment in which some parts of the game make the jump to VR much more gracefully than others. Movement shooters weren't made for this medium, which is why Alyx wasn't one and why the late-game chapters of this mod are a bit too overwhelming (especially with those immersive reloads asking even more of you), but freely one-handing the gravity gun to shred my way through Ravenholm absolutely felt as badass as you'd expect it to.
Don't binge the vehicle levels. Anything but that.

Water Hazard made my stomach physically turn inside out.
The thing left my body, twisted around a bunch and went back inside me.
And I had a great time doing it.
