    Phenomenal.
    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.

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

It's a unique spin on the traditional add-on where you play through the original campaign path from the military's view point. Less box puzzles and more squad based combat make this a more straightforward shooter but still stands strong as a fantastic expansion. Expand
