Black Mesa: Uplink is the recreation of the Half-Life demo (HL: Uplink) released by Valve in early 1999 with featured content that was scrapped from the original storyline.

As I'm not good for reviewing games, I'll just write down what I think is worth pointing out.

It's an overall amazing piece of work.
The soudscape is fantastic, although more background explosions in outdoor areas could have done it way better.
It stays really true to the original game from 1999
Although some things have been changed, they actually changed for a good reason and for a higher level of realism.
Playing with commentary nodes is interesting and worth a second playthrough.

Some lights are way overbrighted, giving a somehow unrealistic feel.
There are some other lightning artifacts here and there. One good example is the strong white light going straight through the vent ducts near the end.
Some areas could have used more detail and revision.

All in all, a short, yet totally fun experience worth the download and playthrough.

While the level design is not as gorgeous as the original Black Mesa Source, the scripted sequences are very well done, especially in the end. Very impressed.

There was a bug where some of the soldiers got stuck in the wall as they came down from the roof.

It is exactly what it says it is. It's a remake of the Uplink demo using Source (Black Mesa). It's short and sweet and not very much was really different from the original.

Very good, just add more bombing, screen shaking and debris falling from ceiling. And blazing alarm sound in Garg scene.

At least thats how I remember it.
