This mod takes place during the Black Mesa incident. You take on the role of a HECU Marine as you fight your way through different sections of the facility and carry out varied missions. *This is not a rebuild of any game, but features areas from Half-life, Blue Shift & Opposing force in the Half-Life fashion.

It's a really great mod, with lots of puzzles and etc. Problems are the very cheap situations and glitches, but then again they will be fixed later on.

Overall, I recommend it!

Another joyous romp through black mesa :D

I was a little deterred by the mixture of low-def textures and high-def textures, and I was disturbed by the fact that my allies killed unarmed scientists and barneys. I know I'm the HECU but I've grown so accustomed to hanging out with Barney and the science team it felt awkward passing them by when my friends butchered them :(

Still, I liked the gameplay and it was very fun for what it was :)

Something no Half-life fan should miss :3

Mesa - Fallback is what you get when great ideas meet limited skill/resources. Interesting puzzles, neat ideas and nice twists on HL1 era maps as well as brand new maps make this worth a play play. The level detail leaves a lot to be desired, with large and often empty maps that often contain rookie glitches and bugs. "Borrowed" assets from various sources keep the mod from having a constant art direction, but the mod is very fun.

Inconsistency in this mod really hurts my eyes, but what's the worst thing about it is schematic gameplay (go to place A and kill everyone, then go to place B and do the same) and bad map design.
About 50% of maps are places from Half-Life and it's expansions. It feels like the mod creator either got bored/lazy or or just didn't know what to do next.

7/10. mod still has a few bugs. I even got stuck at map "op4c" because the next would just not load for some reason

It's really fun but some of the maps got a bit confusing.

I can appreciate what combine- was going for here and there are some laudable aspects to the mod but in the end it just comes across as a cheap, poorly-made riff on Opposing Force. And why the hell is Black Mesa full of HL2 rebels?

A mod that no HL1 fan should miss. The inspiration from Half-Life: Opposing Force is obvious, since you will fight as a HECU marine (and with plenty of teammates) for the whole mod. The typical mission will have you assaulting a location, usually defended by Black Mesa personnel, and clearing it out. One of the mod's flaws is mixing HD resources with HL1-era ones, but that didn't bother me very much. Absolutely recommended!

I always wanted to be hecumarine.
