Half-Life 2: Episode One is an oddly-named sequel to Half-Life 2. The game is shorter, but was an attempt to make the series more episodic so that new additions could come out every few months. That didn't work as people have been waiting for episode three for many years now.

Status

I own this game and have beaten in a couple times.
