The graphics, story-line, and voice acting in this game are all worthy of 5 stars. The gravity gun alone is worth a star. But I can't remember another game that is so unstable. I had to skip an entire chapter because my computer crashed every time it tried to load the chapter. I had to use cheat codes to unlock all the chapters and then start a new game at the next one.
I sent an email to Valve but, no suprise, I got no response. I checked the FAQs but all they suggest is to update the drivers (I already did, duh).
Apart from that, the game keeps crashing unpredictably and there is a huge problem with one of the npcs right now who appears to be wearing a roof around her waist instead of a skirt. Makes it pretty tricky to see around her.
Because of all the stability problems and the loss of an entire chapter I can only give this game a 3 star rating.
