Sweet Half-Life is a single-player mod for Half-Life. It includes 3 new weapons and 5 new enemies. weapons: Minigun: Mowing down an area has NEVER been easier with this bad-ass! Be careful, as it shares ammo with the M16. M16: One of the mod's main attractions, the M16 is the coolest weapon. 50 round clip, MP5 grenades and a short reload sequence. Plasma gun: 60 round clip, 240 ammo carried, and the R-A-C-E's standard issue. Secondary fire uses a BIG shot of 10 rounds. Short reload sequence. Enemies: Minigun grunt: Was "Dumped" from the final game, but it's YOUR chance to see him NOW! Armed with a minigun at all times and its speed make it a weak class selection. R-A-C-E: Standard aliens, always with a plasma gun. there are only 9 seen in-game if you choose Route A (twist the valve), but a LOT more if you choose route B. Probe: Think they will take a picture of you? They will zap you instead. Will detonate when killed. Probe boss: This is a quite hard boss. Only...

The story is a bit more in depth then half-life, but while the gameplay can consistently be engaging I felt that the level design was uninspiring to say the least, eventhough I thought the beginning looked good because it had a sort of classic vibe to be transporting the crystal on a rail as well as to see the grunts acting friendly before they get their orders.

But the length is good, longer then I expected and it has a new weapon which is "sweet" (Pun intended :D). It has scripted sequence which really add to the mods freshness and some voice acting (though the scripted sequences can break the game if you make some mistakes so make sure to keep a save or 2 handy).

My smaller nitpick is the last part of the mod.
The part on the alien spaceship is laughable, to have those aliens we imagined in the 60's horror films... I never expected that from half-life and just like I wouldn't imagine it in Deus Ex. The spaceship has the worst level design I've ever seen.
Though it does give us 2 new alien weapons.
The end boss was way to tough but I did enjoy it for the challenge.
The ending left me sort of.. a wtf moment.
Though there is a alternate ending.

One of the greatest single player Half Life mods

Somehow, this mod just doesn't click with me. I simply can't get a feel for it. Also, as a bit of constructive criticism, I think the voice acting needs work; It's recorded on a pretty static-y microphone and it also lacks actual enthusiasm (I guess?) for lack of a better word.

This was a very average mod. I hated the aliens, only Xen and Race-X aliens teleported in Black Mesa, this is a non-canon thing. They look weird, too. The mapping didn't fell like Black Mesa, and it was also very difficult to play. I also hated the part in the "Xen Arena" with other HEV scientists. The anime pictures are also very strange, they should be removed because this is Black Mesa, not Japan! But there are a few good things, too, especially the inclusion of HEV scientists, the Heavy Weapons Grunt and the Minigun. Overall, it doesn't look like Black Mesa. Nothing special in this mod.
