Winner of over 50 Game of the Year awards, Half-Life set new standards for action games when it was released in 1998. Half-Life: Source is a digitally remastered version of the critically acclaimed and best selling PC game, enhanced via Source technology to include physics simulation, enhanced effects, and more.
You really are a fan of the original Half-Life? Much? You want play it with better graphics?
awwww, sorry, but this isn't your game.
This only is lazy port made in 2004 with the original bugs of the normal Half-Life and a lot of new ones, also the graphics no are better and only adds a few graphic effects for look more cool (Say hi Halo Anniversary)
This "port" only is cool for the content in Gmod and laugh with the stupids bugs and the physics, the game solo is boring and craps totally the original Half-Life (wow, that is awesome, how only a port can crap a fantastic game)
My recommendation: Buy it in a Steam Sale for 1 euro/dolar if you have Gmod and you want have the Half-Life models and weapons in Gmod. For play the true HL Experience buy the original Half-Life, and if you want play it with awesome graphics play Black Mesa (also is free, you only needs TF2 or the Source SDK 2007)
This is one of the few Source games that my computer could handle...I was very excited, I installed it and I was incredibly disappointed. The weapon skins are messed up (maybe it's just for me?), the mapping/gameplay is basically the same from the original, graphics are the same, they only included a new 3D skybox in Surface Tension when you are on the canyon...it doesn't even use the High Definition Model Pack made by Gearbox...the only biggest change was the physics, what a lazy port! Just buy the original Half-Life and avoid wasting your money or (if you are like me) wasting time downloading it from Piratebay. If you really want a good remake, grab Black Mesa Source. I'm not a fan of it but I have to be honest, it is much better. Avoid this one unless you can't play other Source games because of your old PC.
Okay so. This game was very expected for me. But there is no deathmatch. To get deathmatch you need to get Half-Life: Deathmatch Source but it's not that worth installing it. Anyways. Graphics are cool and it has source sounds! It's more reallistic than Half-Life 1. Things i disliked was the bugs and the movement of your player which is kinda meh in some positions. For an example: you can fall easily cause moving yourself can move yourself a bit more or just left and right. Physics is what i mostly wanted. But what else i can say?
7.0 / 10 - Alright
