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.
While great in its persentation and "gameplay", I was forever reminded of the origonal Half Life. I expected too much from this game, but while it looked nice, the gameplay was nothing to be proud of. I personally modified every weapon stat to exactly like the origional, but even then, the predictable AI from the origional (while annoying and merciless as they were) felt missing in the newer.
To my dismay, I actually got bored of it halfway through
Perhaps playing the origional as many times as I did eventually set my expectations TOO high for this release
