Half-Life: Alyx Review
Playing as Alyx Vance, you are humanitys only chance for survival. The Combines control of the planet since the Black Mesa incident has only strengthened as they corral the remaining population in cities. Among them are some of Earths greatest scientists: you and your father, Dr. Eli Vance.
As founders of a fledgling resistance, youve continued your clandestine scientific activityperforming critical research, and building invaluable tools for the few humans brave enough to defy the Combine.
Every day, you learn more about your enemy, and every day you work toward finding a weakness.
