    Half Life in 45 minutes!



    There's a video in the September PC Format (DVD) showing someone completing Half Life (the original) in 45 minutes ..... madness. Has anyone else seen it?

    Are they using a speed hack or what? It could be possible normally though.

    I don't know about a speed hack (although they may be), but mostly is just comes from exploiting a couple of bugs in the game to take shortcuts, just watching it now (and at work - bonus!), it is just total madness!

    I'm rather suprised it takes 45mins tbh, i've played the game through so many times that maybe i forget how much there is to the game.... but if i was trying to complete it quickly i'd guess i'd be running through the game like a mad thing where as usually i'd want to kill everything in sight

    There was one that did it in an hour in PCGamer a while ago.

    Doesn't look like there were any hacks but just expolited and skipped everything. In one section the guy had to do it over 100 times before he could get it right, unreal.
