- Summary: We're back in the Black Mesa compound yet again for the second "official" expansion for 1998's groundbreaking first-person shooter "Half-Life." Take the role of security guard Barney Calhoun who, like Gordon Freeman, is given the task of wiping out every nasty extraterrestrial or misled soldier who crosses his path. (Also includes the first HL expansion pack "Opposing Force.")… Expand
LongtimegamerNov 9, 2009This game has to be the best of all the half-life series... I've always wanted a game where I could do exactly what I would in real life... If I were casted into this apocalyptic senario you can bet your butt that I would be doing nothing other than trying to escape... I would not go to some alien homeworld to kill their boss... I would just make a break for it.… Expand
DonnickD.Jun 4, 2006This is wonderfull game! It expierence both best games- Half-life and Opposing Force!
May 14, 2012This happens, when a game company tries to make money out of VALVe:s best game.
If this game were made by VALVe... it would have been SO much better, but it still is a game worth playing.
Graphics for year 2001:9/10
musics:10/10 (but still they are from hl1, so....)
sound effects: 5/10 THAT LOUD MP5!!
overall 8,7/10, but play it still. It's a half life game after all ;)… Expand
VladimirP.Feb 11, 2002Good game, but they should let you choose more guns. MP-5, M-16, and M-4. You know, it kinda gets boring. Amazing graphics and level variety though.
Dec 15, 2012You know, I really can't say what makes this game appeal to me so much. Its really just a much shorter half-life from a different point of view, but I still cant help but love it.
I think that what might be the main appeal to me about this is the fact that you just play as a normal guy. He isn't the main character of the series, so he doesn't have the "Main Protagonist" kind of immortality. He isn't a trained soldier like in Half-Life: Opposing Force, hes just a kind of normal dude. He probably just woke up that morning, had his breakfast, went to work, then everything just went to **** for no reason.
Really, this is just Half-life just shorter and from a different point of view, so there's really not much to say about it, because what you buy is what you expect.… Expand
Feb 23, 2013This game does not live up to half life standards it is short and boring. No new weapons is presented in this mod. The only good thing is a HD models pack, almost all models are updated. I do recommend this only to hardcore half life fans to look at the black mesa incident from other point of view.… Expand
