Written in a readable format, it is broken down into six sections examining some of the most important topics to the game:

How Half-Life is a key step in the evolution from the composite style of videogame design to the set piece style of design.

How Half-Life defined almost all of the core concepts of the cover-based shooter, and redefined the level architecture of the FPS genre

The small tricks and flourishes that Half-Life used to tell a story through its mechanics, AI and environments

Key Features
