Does anyone know where there is a detailed walk through, preferably with pictures?

Unfortunately I'm not one of those that enjoys running up and down the same corridors looking for something I missed, worrying if I'd blown up a barrel in the wrong place. At those times I prefer to just look up what I'm supposed to be doing.

I found one, but its about as useful as a wicker condom. Text only, not very descriptive and generally rather confusing.

Luckily for me, I don't embarrass easy when it comes to how inept I am at these single player games.

**EDIT** Nevermind, I did it now :roll: :)

I found this one:

http://db.gamefaqs.com/computer/doswin/file/half_life_2_a.txt

Though it is also text it does seem to be quite detailed:

slippery ground continues around the corner and to the right,
where a whole room full of Barnacles is waiting for you. But,
there's something you can do. Behind you are a pair of explosive
barrels. And, unlike the Barnacles in Half Life 1, these
Barnacles will at least CHEW on anything they catch. So why not
give them something spicy. If you catch my drift. (Boom).
Just remember you have to wait for them to catch the barrel, then
shoot it a few times to light it on fire. Don't blow it up!
Just light it on fire. If you time it right, it should take out
most of them, and give you the breathing room you need to shoot
down the last one or two.

As you emerge from the Barnacle sewer room, immediately dive into
the water. Flaming barrels will rain down on you, but if you stay
submerged you won't take the hits. As soon as you come up against
the grating blocking your way underwater, turn to your right and
you'll see a ladder. Quickly climb this and slide over the metal
grating and back into the water on the other side.

Swim to the far left end of this pool, then turn around. A partially
submerged platform gives you the ramp you need to get up and out
of
the water. Follow the platforms around the pool, shooting soldiers
as needed, until you reach the open sewer grate.

There is a 663Mb movie of HL2 (apparantly - I'm not downloading this at work!) which may help.

Update:
Actually this is rather fun to watch if you have played the games 'properly', the player takes loads of shortcuts, and in a lot of instances just plain ignores the baddies.
And it's only just over 3 hours long, so HL2 can be finished quickly if you know what you are doing..

Been playing this for a while now - somewhat disappointed that it's still a very scripted game - by which I mean that yu don't really have much of a choice as to where you go or what you do.

I think I will get STALKER when it's available - that seems to be a better bet.

What do people think of HL2 as a game? the visuals are great, the grav gun is a load of fun, I would like to have a snipers rifle though I suppose they daren't put one in since it would make things a little too easy.
