Run. Think. Shoot. Live. Source. Black Mesa is the Half-Life 2 total conversion of the original Half-Life game. Utilizing the Source engine and its endless array of possibilities and powers, Black Mesa will throw you into the world that started the Half-Life continuum and introduced Gordon Freeman to the world as a gun-toting, bullet-dodging Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics.

i think one of the devs said it was a new room in questionable ethics

If all the new rooms look even half as good as this one, then this mod will be at the top of Moddb's mods list for a long time. :)

It's no longer an exact carbon copy. The devs tried to update the level design to be more sensible and believable in a modern setting and to improve pacing and such. However, from what I can tell, most of the design doesn't deviate very much from the originals.

perhaps you are way used to playing the origional Half-life, which didn't have any projected shadow or light system to speak of? :D I think it is a good idea to make a large and varied environment, including a few "spooky rooms" where you have to use your flashlight. To each their own, i guess. :)

It's a ******* room that's dark. That's how rooms that are dark look.

Not really, some parts are completely black(such as the ceiling) and it just looks odd. The detailing of the room and everything is fine but the lighting is ugly in all honesty.

That may be due to the source engine's lighting engine. A dark room with the flashlight on might not look the best.

There is no "not really".
Dark rooms are dark. Period.

Different layout and additional rooms/ interactive experiments, but all the original features are still there, as well as a few surprises and expanded choreography.

If they're doing new things within the Black Mesa facility... imagine how amazing Xen will look.
