    Gearbox has literally outdone them self on this masterpiece of a game. With strikingly superior graphics for this games time and
    innovative story telling, this game honestly deserves a ten.
    I remember sitting,waiting for this game to be released at a young age after beating the first Half-Life.
    The story is fantastic, showing a different perspective. Instead of being the protagonist Gordon Freeman, you now take place as an antagonist known as Adrian Shepard. Moving on the the multi player, it is insanely fun. The excessive amount of explosions going on around you is an exciting add-on to this game. With servers still running eleven years later, this game is fantastic. Don't think that Opposing Force lacks a cooperative mode, because one Coop server is currently running with a maximum slot of 32 players per match.

    Overall, this game is a splendid masterpiece and I would recommend anyone buying. It's a ten dollars worth spending on a game such as this one.

    An excellent expansions for a pioneering and enjoyable game, I finally got to play as the marines I so despised. No longer did we have to "Follow the Free Man", I could instead be part of the assault on the doomed facility. And of course, we had CTF in Half-Life. And a portal gun. YES! Expand

    This game was almost as good as the original Half Life. There's a whole new side of the story to explore, and what happens to Black Mesa after Gordon Freeman leaves for Xen. Also, the new protagonist and huge selection of weapons make Opposing Force feel more like an actual game than an expansion pack. Expand

    This game is very great. It has a long story like half life itself (unlike Blue Shift one). It really gives you a different experience of the same game. But there are really bad few bugs. Like you can get stuck in the elevator, doors etc. But still my money worth it! Expand

    Half-Life: Opposing Force was a brief (but in my opinion just-right) expansion for the classic FPS Half-Life. The graphics are dated, but if you are a Half-Life fan, you should definitely give it a try. It's not as good as Half-Life itself, but it comes close. HL: Blue Shift is another good one. Give them a try if you're a Half-Life fan. Expand

    Adrian Shepard- i played this game when it first came out. Its been quite awhile and to remember the main characters name says it all. For its time it was one of the best, and storyline and pacing blow away alot of what is out right now. This is a GREAT classic... Expand

    this game sucks. gearbox is literally pissing all over the HL franchise with this piece of garbage. linear boring and trying to force canon to accept it are just a few of the things this trashbag does wrong Expand
