I loved Half-Life and could play it blindfolded... Black Mesa is a really good remake, I loved playing it as it was very familiar - but improved ;-)

I'm a die-hard Half-Life fan even though I've never played the first one I fell in love with the game even though it was the trail version. I got it off of thats where you can get it BTW.
Even though there are some no-clip errors now and then I give it a 4.75 out of 5.
