The quality of the mod is really good, I'd even say it's almost Valve-quality. Having a blast with it so far (with minor annoyances being the not-so-good-in-my-opinion sounds for monsters.I liked the old houndeye going WHEEEEEEEWWWWWWW ). But I also encounter a serious problem, a fatal bug of some sort. Im near the giant fan right now, in the blast pit chapter, ANd when I activate it my game just crashes in a couple of seconds. Any ideas on how to fix it?

I don't usually comment or provide feedback, but after waiting 8 years- I thought I should say something. The first time I saw half-life was when watching my unkle play on his computer. Then my brother tried it for himself, and I watched him play all the way through. I was probably too young to play games (FPS), so I never ended up playing half-life, but I still remember it and the good child hood memories brought with it. Fast Forward to 2004 and I hear that they're making a remake, I was probably 11, and so I thought I might actually play it for the first time. Over the course of 8 years I waited to relive the same experience my brother once had, but this time I would be in Gordons shoes playing for myself. At times I thought the mod might be dead, but there was always a sense that it wasn't. I was correct when they finally released a few pics about 3 months ago or so. Now the game's released, and long story short. Thank you- I LOVE the game!

I love how they altered the level enough to make them new and more expansive, yet you still know where you are. Also, Im lovin all the different model of the scientists and security guards. but i notice one thing thats a lil annoyin, the load times. But beside that, ya'll have done an amazing job.

CRAZY!

What the hell man... This MOD shouldn't be free, I feel bad for getting such and amazing piece of work without paying a cent. You can definetely see how much work and passion has been put into it by the team. And to think nowadays we pay so much for crappy half-assed games filled with paid DLC. Please BM team, if you read this, here are my sincere words to you in ultimate capslock. . .
I ******* LOVE YOU GUYS, THIS "MOD" ROCKS SO MUCH I JUST CAN'T DEFINE IT WITH WORDS OH MY MY GOD I CAN'T CONTAIN THE HYSTERIA OMG!!!!!! SERIOUSLY YOU GUYS JUST MADE BIG HISTORY WITH THIS!! THANKS, THANKS SO MUCH!!
