can echo this. the price for this game is a joke and i am not willing to pay this money. beside that a 24 server would cost around 15.- $ a month so this is nearly half of what bf3 and bf4 costs. lolGood question but the interest for HL in general was lukewarm to say the least in a previous thread. "Poor value and lacking novelty" I guess sums it up.
I myself will wait and see especially if price drops, the Ultimate edition is now just close to £100 on Origin - what a f*** joke!
