Really Nice!

Very great Half-Life mod! It's a must have, but the broken English and typos in this mod turns me off. Maybe you could hire someone in ModDB who have a better English and let them release an update with fixed English.

Greet mod.

The maps are really well done, and the choice of SD models is nice. Another neat thing though is the soundtrack, it features an interesting choice of music from the Half-Life universe. However the broken English in the cutscenes and a few other minor inconsistencies are a rather large turnoff (for me at least). Still very fun though, if someone makes a patch for the dialouge it would be amazing. Nice work Braque.

Return to Black Mesa Research Facility once more, this time, as security guard Brad and experience alternate story of Half-Life. Starting your day as usual you find yourself in the center of chaos and who else if not you is there to save the day? The mod features 40 different maps and at least 2 hours of gameplay. The level design is amazing, almost making you forget that this is just a mod and not an official expansion pack like Blue Shift or Opposing Force. As the matter of fact, Black Guard is a mix of both! Custom models and new soundtrack also fits nicely! Sadly, not everything is so great. To begin with, the English is nowhere near good, even if you do install the path it is still hard to understand, on the other hand, what else would you expect, it was made by Chinese! Another thing, while the mod features quite a big levels, most of the time they are only for item fetching. You may encounter a few crashes here and there, at least I did, but once you get trough them, the game is really great!

Great looking, decently designed open-ended levels that suffer hugely from set-piece fights designed to be almost impossible, very frequently.

This is a very good mod. One of the best I've played. Well-made and not too short either. Gameplay was challenging at times and the mod made great use of scripted sequences taken from Half-Life and Blue Shift.

Good work on the character models too - security guard models were awesome and scientist models sometimes had labcoat clipping issues but great job anyway.

The mapping is excellent but, the mod itself is very hard and your english is crap.

very unbalanced and not original 5/10

good work, interesting story, mapping is fine too
what to say else? i see the one of the best half-life mappers
he tried to make some story, not just shooter, walk and shoot
