Prequel for Half-Life. Mod allows to look and take part at the events before the Half-Life. You assume the role of Dr. Gordon Freeman. You will meet Kleiner, Vance, Barney, Rosenberg and others characters.

Without subtitles, I was completely at a loss as to what was happening.

Even with subtitles, many players would find this mod... er... rather dull.

But I for one actually enjoyed the scripted events that helped tell the story of how Gordon Freeman came to Black Mesa, meeting several familiar characters along the way :)

It's not the most action packed mod ever, but those looking for some good ol' fashioned Black Mesa atmosphere and storytelling, look no further :D

I agree with perlateo:

- The running scientist. Maybe some players would find it boring, if the scientist would just walk slow like in the original intro, but i personally like it more realistic
- The Russian language. I know Russian but, scientists and Barney Calhoun talking in Russian destroys the atmosphere totally. Whole Black Mesa looks so typical American, that scientist speaking Russian seem to be from another planet.
- The translation is done very poorly. For example, after your registration you get into a train and the scientist tells you after arriving "We came". Correct would be "We arrived". "We Came" would mean, well, that they just have had sex with each other ;)

Also there are some storyline errors, for example: Rosenberg and Freeman never met each other.
In the Test labs you added a door which doesn't exist in the original game.

I wanted to meet with Alyx Vance (while she was a child) and Azian Vance (Eli's wife) :(

Generally I enjoyed this mod. 8/10
