It's amazing to see what has evolved from a simple mod by people who wanted to recreate their favorite game. Definitely 10/10.

I have to say this is the best remake of half-life 1 I've ever seen especially the xen levels and residue processing with minimal platforming compared to original half-life 1. This game is definitely worth the 20 dollars and I highly recommend this to anyone who is a half-life fan.

Okay, this is my REAL review. May contain spoilers if you're new to the series.

I absolutely think this is a great way to experience the first game. It's much more detailed and the story is a lot fresher. The puzzles in the first half are fun, the guns are familiar and nice, the graphics are beautiful.

Xen was Beautiful at first. It looked incredible but the chapter "interpolation" absolutely went on forever. It was room after another and the puzzles never stopped. It seriously felt like a chore and I can say I definitely hate what they did to that chapter. They made that chapter a lot take as long as the first half of the game. Fighting the nihilanth wasn't even exciting because interpolation took so long and was way too difficult to even be excited. I just felt so judgy and ****** by that time. The fight itself wasn't even fun. It felt very tedious. They absolutely butchered the ending. I hated it so much. Gman does NOT sounds like Gman. It is very cringe.

That first part of the game though, my god. I love it. After that, Xen. Beautiful. Way better than valve portrayed it in half life. Later in Xen it just never ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ ended. Such a chore. The nihilanth was idk. Cool. But I was too drained after playing interpolation that it was ruined for me. They ♥♥♥♥♥♥ up Gman.
Also I want to expand on the first half of Xen. I think they knocked it out of the park. The world was breathing and felt alive. Right st the portal opened the scientists jumped right into finding a way to get there with their teleportation technology not available to even a lot of the facility to know about they got there and they left behind a bunch of research equipment and supplies. They were there for days before freeman arrived and it's so cool.
Where it started to slip was when you got to a specific island and found a bunch of combine technology. It was cool at first like yeah this wasn't touched correctly in the first game. They made it much for familiar and the first puzzle was fun. But after that began the never ending room after room puzzles that never ended. (I'd say it took me 9 hours and I didn't even finish it. I just got so ******.) I arrived at yet another ******* puzzle and just said ♥♥♥♥ it and used the console to load to the Nihilanth.
