It seems i am not the only one pissed of with this online single player crap! Not only do you need to be online to register but also to load the game. What a bunch of useless crap.
Once it finishes downloading all the files, you won't have to go online to play. It's still a pain, though. You should be able to just click a button to download the files without having to sit there and play.
Steam is fine with me. No bugs, no problems, no complaints. Bitch on ...
This is the price we pay for piracy. Nothing is ever free....

I agree with Fragger and Azz, Steam works just fine for me. Although, sometimes it says I have to login again when I try to start offline mode.....

THATS NOT TRUE. The game wont play without loging into steem which you need the net for. Also there IS no offline option. Not in my steam at least.
I don't know ..if I'm in the middle of playing hl2 single player and my internet connection drops..will the game close? I haven't tried pulling the network cable in the back of my computer out while I was playing. I don't have a problem with steam..but i would like a solution to the single player option. I feel a lawsuit coming :uhoh:
I think steam works fine, but I get all my games via retail. I'll be playing around X-mas, with online capabilities (hopefully, if the network works...). Merry Christmas!

you do not need to be connected to the net to play. Select the offline option.
