Named Game of the Year by over 50 publications, Valve's début title blends action and adventure with award-winning technology to create a frighteningly realistic world where players must think to survive. Also includes an exciting multiplayer mode that allows you to play against friends and enemies around the world.
This is one of 'those' games that must be played more than once in order to appreciate it to the fullest.
I don't know how many 'famous' mods there are for the Half Life series, but for a game such as this to still have mods coming out, even after years of being released... well that has to say something for how awesome this game is.
I recommend that anyone who hasn't played this to buy it and try it out, because Half Life is a game that has changed gaming history.
Half-life is an outstanding game wich breaks the formula of nowadays FPS' The fact that there are no cutscenes at all makes Half-life playable for those itnerested and not interested in the storyline. The game contains both Real and Fictional weapons and learns you how to associate with them in a fun and smart way. Half-life is the new basic requirement for new FPS'.
