Episode One is the first in a series of games that reveal the aftermath of Half-Life 2 and launch a journey beyond City 17.
Follow HL2 installation howto to install and configure HL2 Episode 1
Installation, Gameplay (including sound, graphics, etc). Played with DX8 settings (selected from the command line) as under DX9 there were odd graphical glitches
What does not
Major slowdown in the reactor core, whilst a video is playing on the monitor. This ceases to be a problem if you wait for it to finish and get into the elevator, but I could not see another workaround
What was not tested
Nothing; complete playthrough of the game
Silver rather than gold due to the reactor slowdown. Otherwise, everything was fine.
