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 see how much work has been done.. Sure.. It is a lot of work to remake a game. I see that. The problem with Black Mesa is, that all this work was for nothing! The gameplay just doesn't work right.
It is a Half-Life remake and so it should play like Half-Life. In this Mod there are so many wrong things like false explosion-ranges and damage-values.. wrong ammo-limits (Don't tell me this should be better balancing.. It's plain bad.) wrong weapon-mechanics (CoD-style Grenade Launcher.. Worst RPG I've ever used and broken Tau-cannon, which can't even wallbang)... The movement feels like you have a sponge under your feet.. The jumphight is too low and the "improved" AI is just an improved aimbot. They don't act smart.. They just aimbot + wallhack you.
I played the original for years.. This remake is nothing like Half-Life.
