I can see how opinions may vary on it being a 10/10 stunning FPS, but I can't see anyone saying it was a bad FPS. That's like saying The Godfather is a bad movie, it's not really a valid opinion.

That's me being an ass though, probably.

Portal is worth $10 on its own, even if you for some reason dislike HL2 and TF2.

I wasn't a fan of TF2 either, then I actually played it. Since then I've put in nearly 300 hours

Yeah for sure it is worth getting for €9.99 now.

I didn't have Portal, and gave the other games to a friend.

Just bought the game last night. My friend also bought it today since it was rather inexpensive. EP2 is weird imo, not exactly eye opening but still very nicely polished like the previous games. Have yet to try TF2 though.

Ep2 is amazing imo, as all HL2 games.
Gaming perfection really.

Who wants to give me portal?

Just a quick question. Why is it so whenever i enable Bloom in the video options in EP2 it automatically disables by itself when i visit the video settings page again? Does my hardware not support it? I have HDR enabled by default and i have AA set to 4x. Disabling AA doesnt enable the bloom as well. Anyway what difference does this setting make? By enabling HDR arent there bloom effects already?

I think HDR takes the place of bloom.

I'm pretty sure the Australian outboack has HDR and Bloom support at the same time.
