Welcome back Mr. Freeman, Black mesa is now available on Early Access, Black Mesa is what we had all hoped half life source would have been, a total re invisoning of the Classic brought up to date with higher definition models, textures and more.

Crowbar collective state. “Making a game with the scope and scale of Black Mesa is a massive undertaking. Back in 2012 we made the decision to release what we had completed up to that point, and were blown away by the community’s response, feedback, and improvements to our work. We want to keep that relationship alive and well by using Early Access as a tool for allowing our community to participate in the final phase of Black Mesa’s development.

In addition, our ambitions go beyond the original Xen chapters found in Half-Life. We have a standard of quality that we have to achieve. Early Access allows us to commit resources to bring you the remaining chapters with the quality that you expect.”

"We currently have the first ~85% of our single player campaign completed. For the last 15% we want to not only recreate it, but improve upon it to make it an enjoyable and memorable experience. We feel it will take us considerable time to get the last 15% up to our standards, and putting a time estimate on it would be a total guess.”

This EA release sees you playing over 10 hours of single player campaign. Multiplayer deathmatch and team deathmatch with 6 completely re-imagined Half-Life 1 maps on the Source Engine.

Moronic, gory, stupid. The scientists haven't shaven. Too many minorities (women and dark-skinned scientists and scientists that look like German nazis as opposed to Americans with Jewish or Israelite strains like in the original Half-life). Scientists aren't 'likeable.' Guards aren't 'likeable' and use profanity. Graphics are only slightly improved upon. The original Half-life used too much gore -this one uses much much more -way too much. Voice-acting is moronic and detestable. Environments are darker, grittier and 'rustier': Original half-life looked 'futuristic' wasn't rust everywhere like in this one. All in all a decent attempt but everything is 'dumbed' down and 'washed up,' morally and intellectually...

Very surprised to see the 'OVERWHELMING' high reviews but this IS a stupid country and no longer the intellectual and moral U.S.A. I give this about 5.5 out of 10 stars.

you wasted your time making up stuff you don't even understand,

most of what you said is invalid, over-exaggerated, and straight out wrong,

P.S: if you think that "Half-Life 1" has "too much gore" "you havein't seen nothin' yet".

What an anti-intellectual, White supremacist, anti-minority complainer.

This really is a good mod, it's not really an enhancement mod, like my mod, nor a total makeover like Cinematic mod. It really is perfect, as the graphics are not slightly boosted, nor completely overhauled. It's just in between. It's got a balance of good graphics and the nostalgia of the old Half-Life.

Also, the map design is quite faithful to the original, but, in my opinion, the gameplay is a bit different. Fighting is slightly more rigid than the original Half-Life, but the scenery was good, and that was enough to relive the Half-Life memories.

Nearly 4 years to develop Xen with absolutly no information at all, and they chose to focus on multiplayer which nobody cares about...
Not even talking about the free ---> paid mod status.

I think we've been a little abused now...

Several months ago, they released an update for Black Mesa that has Surface Tension Uncut officially added into the game. It's different from the mod version, but it's great imo.

I am getting an error after installing Black Mesa, On a Rail/Surface Tension uncut, Xen Chapters and Hazard Course. When I load the mod from Steam, it says it can't load character system.

Reinstalling will help but I believe one of the mods integrated into the game somehow caused the issue.

This mod is amazing! Feels like i'm playing a Valve's game, not a modification.
Now i understand what people felt like in 1998.

At first i made a really nice review to this game mod. But then i advanced further in the game and i got really pissed off... Yeah its pretty and scenic , yeah most of the voice acting is great and the music is fantastic but there is a huge annoying gash that just makes the game shit! AI: WHAT BASICALLY MAKES THE GAME SHIT AI: SHIIIT Soldiers...Im fine with other critters plaing running to eat you but soldiers(well the alien soldiers suck in this department as well). Anyway so where were we? oh…
