If you like classic Black Mesa style, allow me recommend you to download and play my modification. This one will let you visit your favorite research complex again and investigate some new areas of the Black Mesa Research Facility.

Number of maps:
5

Play time:
~30-40 min

Launch instructions:
To start the game, you need to move a folder "hopelessness" in your Half-Life directory, and then launch "hopelessness.bat" or "hopelessness(2).bat". Further you can start a new game.

P.S.: This is my first modification and release at all. You shouldn't expect from this one something bigger than the beginner's project.

It is just another try to escape from the Black Mesa. Would the nameless scientist save himself with your help?

It's just so disappointing that It's shorter than expected and that it ended like that... still 8/10

C'mon you can't do this to us, what's the point of giving Tau gun ammo when you're gonna abruptly end the game like that? Seriously the mod is very well made, It leaving me wanted more of it, great action, subtly creepy atmosphere, quite brain tinkering puzzle. Also, i'm really enjoy the 'find key item' instead of having to always pressing button and turning valve to proceed. A very effective and nostalgic formula that reminds me of earlier adventure games like Resident Evil and such. All in all 9.8/10

*Edit*

Also really looking forward to the next chapter if you planned it of course.

A surprisingly good mod. The maps are very detailed and there are several reconnected areas that make it much more interesting than your typical linear HL mod. The mod appears to use Unholy's code, which significantly increases difficulty by replacing batteries and wall-HEV chargers with kevlar vests. The soldiers in the first two maps are the hardest part of the mod, since many of them carry contact grenades and the maps are pretty confined.

This mod has a very creepy atmosphere that allows it to draw out the horror aspects of HL and scare the players. A spooky background music, along with some ambushes made me very tense and I held down the shift key most of the time while playing. Around the half-way I started hearing gonomes... this mod's horror element made it really appealing to me.

I really highly recommend you try this mod. It's not too long, but the experience is great. The maps are well-made, and health/armour is pretty reasonable, but the soldiers at the beginning do make the first part of the mod harder than the later parts. If you are going to play this, I hope you do it at night, alone. Preferably with the lights off.

Would have easily given this a 10 if it weren't for two things. First, don't upload your config.cfg file with your mod. Some people may use different controls and mouse settings and it's annoying to have to reset them. Second, a couple of issues getting into some of the vents near the start, requiring you to crouch and then jump to get in. Otherwise, I loved it. I hope you continue because the ending was a bit of a downer. :P
