There is not much to say about this old game that hasn't been said really. Many people have played Half-Life 2 and the episodes, but sometimes there are those few who haven't really tried out the original Half-Life, along with it's expansions Blue Shift and Opposing Force. I also never played Half-Life, so I decided to try it out. Many mechanics are simialr to its sequel with many of the same guns, along with some other ones unique to this game. This game is an amazing experience from the begining to the end, despite the not as strong end levels, but still, it's a great shooter with great mechanics and gunplay, along with great level desgin not seen as much now in today's corridor shooters. The story is presented through the eyes of the silent Gordon Freeman the entire time, and despite the games old graphics, still makes the game incredibly immersive, even more so than many games today on the market. The expansions are also worth your time and are neccessary to purchase, and you can get a discount by buying the Half Life 1 Anthology. The only reason you would not play this is the simplistic graphics, but with people playing games like Minecraft, along with the greatness of this historic masterpiece, this is a must buy, and you should definitely be played BEFORE PLAYING HALF-LIFE 2 AND THE EPISODES. Anyway, I was just bored and had some time on my hands. So just remember, NEVER be late for work.
