The greatest addition by far is the Gravity Gun. Now you don't need to worry about only using 2 bullets, 1 grenade, etc. because the gravity gun needs no ammo. You can pull things from far away, break doors and use the splinters as flying knives, or throw a propane tank at zombies.
The graphics are also, in one word, amazing. If you can max them out, their breathtaking. If you can't, They still are. That's another advantage, almost any system can play it, no questions asked. I can run everything at medium, with the FPS getting below 10 very rarely, on my old
Toshiba laptop with 256mb of RAM, 64mb video card, 2.6GHz processor. And, any computer with at least DirectX 7.0 can run it.
Now, about steam: I don't really see what the big deal is. You can run it in offline mode, and it works fine for me. But for those that it doesn't, there is a little program called SteamBuster.
Another great thing is what you get in the package. Half-Life 2 alone is worth the 15. But you also get Counter-Strike: Source and Half-Life: Source, which separate would be around 30 bucks.
All in all, there is no excuse for not buying this.
Live and learn.
