Black Mesa is an incredible well made mod/game.
Most of it looked awesome like:
ALL the enviroments looked incredible,the weapons, scientists etc.
loved the Hive-gun's new attack sounds
and the new gluon gun omg!
the hole the player has to make in order to progress in Questionable Ethics in the laser-test room looked unbeliveable!
Loved how they made several changes/perks in the map levels,
making old veterans like myself wonder at some place where to go!
Things i didn't like:
BM's Alien Grunt looks like some sort of Alien Nazi wtf??
It runs WAY to fast and to skinny, making it look cheesy.
A ported HL1 version would've looked 10 times better..
the "Vortigaunts" in BM...*sigh*
HL2 vorts looks so incredible cheesy in comparsion to the original
im suprised they sticked to them..
Especilly since the original looked more imtimidating,
the HL2 versions look allot more friendlier,
like some sort of teletubbies in comparsion.
Didn't like the new Teleport/Lightning sounds of the vortigaunt,
and their faster & weaker Lightning attack.
the HECU-Soldiers were obviously just HL2 Combine-soldiers
with new models/skins...
I especially noticed the Combine's redundant tractics
like runing straight toward the enemy instead of firing from a distance and severe lack of use of Hand Grenades that made the original ones act realistic & hard in a good way.
The new HECU-soldier voices were OK.
Considering this is a mod its pretty good but HL1 HECU-grunt voices/radio is still notably superior & would've been allot better to use immo.
the music was just -> *facepalm* in comparson to anything heard in HL1.
I would've enjoyed it allot more if it used the old track
or made a new one that actually fit the game,
and not some wierd track that made me think they were trolling or somethin'.
BM's theme song.. It sound like some creepy doll music rather then what you'd expect from such a well made HL remake.. -_-
Really well done trilogy, with great suspense and exciting atmosphere make's this mod really enjoyable and all the storytelling is really nicely executed to play and experience.
I liked the final part of this trilogy a lot, with a lot of dialogue and voice acting is really convincing and good!
A really must play for those who are looking good story with decent voice acting and experience something really horrific and cool!
8/10 - Brilliant ride all way to the end
