Half Life 2 question

My buddy bought (no, really) HL2 but doesn't have the internet. He says he can't install it because you absolutely need the internet to get past STEAM or something. I was just wondering if this was true or not, because I was about to go out and buy it. Thanks

Nope, first time you play you have to have internet access
after that you don't need to be online, but must have the disc

Who in the hell doesn't have access to the internet - and yet has a PC capable of running HL2? Have him bring his PC to your house to install it.

We're in a military barracks overseas and I'm on a public computer, and they won't let us touch their network.

theres a version without CS:S but you still need an internet connection to register it.

In answer to your question: Don't buy HL2, Valve could not have possibly dreamed up a worse ending, even if they were being beaten with retard-sticks while writting the plot. Which may very well have been the case.
