Made by Gearbox Software and originally released in 2001 as an add-on to Half-Life, Blue Shift is a return to the Black Mesa Research Facility in which you play as Barney Calhoun, the security guard sidekick who helped Gordon out of so many sticky situations.

If you say this game sucks you can go die in h3ll.


Extremely short. :( But still awesome.


Good design and atmosphere, awesome gameplay and good plot. It is my favorite official addon. Bad that it is short.

Fun, but I wish there was a little more new stuff in it.'s not as fun as opposing force but it's worth keeping.

playing as barney was something i always wanted to do because you meet him enough in half life


My favorite official mod.


Another decent expansion by Gearbox. While it didn't add anything new in terms of gameplay, weapons or enemies, at least it focused on story (while being shorter than OF) and introduced new characters and facts about Black Mesa.
There are, ofcourse, a couple of '********' moments (how can Barney survive in Xen with no suit?), but also a couple of neat ones.
My biggest complaint about Blueshift would be that it came out with addition of an atrocity known as HD pack.
Funny thing how Blueshift's protagonist, Barney Calhoun, is one of main characters in Half-Life 2 and Episodes :)

And yes, I owe this game my nickname ;)

Really great game, nice atmosphere, and it has a nice HD Pack.
There is only one problem though, i finished it in less than 3 hours.

The protagonist isnt as great a Gordon Freeman, but Barney Calhoun is not bad at all.
It was fun playing as one of the security guards, see what happens while Gordon kicks *** elsewhere.

No body Hate this Blue ****
If you hate it
Go home and die ya f*cker
