Matrix games has it on sale for under $30 - I was going to buy the boardgame version (I've never played HL - it looks great!), but the PC one is half the cost and more portable.
Any feedback?

I haven't played it myself, but I wanted to buy it, but hesitated as I think it is the PC version of HL (not of HL:CAO).

This review isn't too bad, but not too good either, so finally I decided to stay with the board game...:

I thought about it, due to the Matrix holiday sale, but after looking at the screenshots, puh-leaze.

The game was released in 2007, but those graphics look early 90's. It's like they weren't even trying.

Total Annihilation came out 10 years earlier (1997) and has better graphics.

Well what do you expect from a no budget production? I'm sure they aren't expecting to sell more than a few hundred copies. Mobile would be a better choice for this game.
