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?

Well I gave this mod as shot and found it excessively hard and not fun. Having Spawning enemies popping out of nowhere behind you and having no ammo to fight Grunts with Guns is not fun. There was potential with this mod, but they blew it, The ending of falling down a broken corridor was a weak ending.

As one person said the game is brutal and not for the casual player. I downloaded both versions and after playing the first one I Decided NOT to play the second and deleted it. Your choice and game but I would have to say PASS on this mod.

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.

I like that puzzles were mostly coming off naturally and level design pointed me in the right direction and I mosty knew where to go. The idea behind the keycode puzzle was pretty outlandish and I didn't really attempt to try solving it on my own, but that's the only gripe I have with the mod in this regard. I also enjoyed how the level design rarely felt like a mixed bag and didn't break the experience for me. Like how areas felt connected and at only one point was I slightly confused with how…
