Run. Think. Shoot. Live. Source. Black Mesa is the Half-Life 2 total conversion of the original Half-Life game. Utilizing the Source engine and its endless array of possibilities and powers, Black Mesa will throw you into the world that started the Half-Life continuum and introduced Gordon Freeman to the world as a gun-toting, bullet-dodging Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics.

I am amazed at how un source like this mod has turned out in places i nearlly mistook it for a current generation retail game it looks like it could look better than hl2 ep 3 might. And in total shock and awe i can honnestly say this is as good as hl2 if not better certainly better level design.It follows the main areas in Hl1 without trying too look exactly the same not like a HD remake but more an adaption of Black Mesa with the not soo limited engine.The gameplay is amazing it feels like Half Life fast paced and furious. A couple of bad bits the reload animations on some of the weapons like the glock and mp5 are not very good i dont know if it was a decision to keep them like in hl1 but i feel a little more realism wouldnt go a miss. This truely has been for me the best source mod i have ever played if not mod on this site.

This mod is amazing! Feels like i'm playing a Valve's game, not a modification.
Now i understand what people felt like in 1998.
