Half-Life: Opposing Force is an expansion pack for Valve Software's science fiction first-person shooter video game Half-Life. The game was developed by Gearbox Software and published by Sierra Entertainment on November 1, 1999. Opposing Force is the first expansion for Half-Life and was first announced in April 1999. Randy Pitchford, the lead designer on the game, later noted that he believed Gearbox was selected to develop Opposing Force because Valve wanted to concentrate on their future projects. Over the course of development, Gearbox brought in a variety of outside talent from other areas of the video games industry to help bolster various aspects of design. Opposing Force returns to the same setting as Half-Life, but instead portrays the events from the perspective of a U.S. Marine, one of the enemy characters in the original game. The player character, Adrian Shephard.

A great expansion to an awesome game.

No Half-Life or FPS player would hate this mod! Awesome gameplay, a satisfying arsenal of weapons, the enemies... AND SO MUCH MORE!!! HL:OF rocks! \m/


I agree with many of players who say this is a good game. It is.
Moreover, it is a MOD, which was very successful amongst the fans of the original Half-Life. This is the most awesome to know, meeting this game on the Mod Database once.

This game made my childhood, and did it much more than official and dusty Blue Shift. Not speaking about Counter-Strike, as I personally love single player, so opinions may differ in this case.

Despite there were many bugs, I cannot be objective here, sorry. Not today, give me a break, please. :)

Best Game-Mod Ever!!!

The protagonist isnt as great a Gordon Freeman, but Corporal Adrian Shephard is not bad at all.

But if he and Gordon had cross paths, things would have ended up badly.

Could be A LOT better if Valve made it. Or someone else who could put ANY effort into writing an original plot.


Good game, You can waste hours in this game and you will not regret
