Good game. Very highly rated on Steam.

    Black Mesa is already in your Steam library

    goddamit when did I buy this? I can't remember

    time to finally play it I guess

    • +1

      It's one of the longest single player FPS I've ever played (around 40hrs). Be prepared

      • +6

        Too much faffing about in Xen.

        • +2

          The best part about Black Mesa is even though it's a HD remake, they did a complete overhaul of the Xen section of the game (because most agree that it was the worst part about the original game).

          • +1

            @Novacore: But now Xen is far worse then the original Xen, so long and repetitive.

      • +1

        It was a lot shorter than that for me but it's very good either way. Being familiar with Half-Life may speed things up.

    • +2

      lol this is pretty much my backlog….copies of the same game on different platforms, never played them

    • +3

      Go here and it will tell you the date you bought or activated everything on your Steam account.

    Its great to replay HL #1 now that I'm aged like good cheese. Dang there are some good jump scares!

    • +1

      "I'm aged like good cheese." But smell like limburger LOL

  • +11

    Buying this to atone for pirating HL1 so many years ago

    • Different developer but maybe a few cents will get to Valve (not that they need it)

      • +13

        Valve gets a 30% cut. They are doing ok.

    • +4

      Half-Life 1 was probably the best value game I have ever bought. Fantastic single/multiplayer and then years of gaming with mods. I believe the valve game bundle goes on sale often giving you all their titles for very low cost.

      • Best value, and definitely in the top 5 games I've EVER bought. HL 2 also easily in the top 5

      • With all the expansions it was a great game, story line and days of play.

  • Good price for the game. Last mission is sooooooo draggy though.

  • +1

    Is this game just a facelift, or is there some actual changes to it?

    • +4

      There's major changes in the Xen section, the rest is smaller changes and a facelift

    • +2

      Up to Xen it's true to the original (aside facelift) with the exception that they did make changes to improve clarity and direction, so that people wouldn't get lost/stuck as often and would be more likely to make it through to Xen. I think they did a fantastic job managing that improvement of clarity while staying true to the original. I also really liked the new Xen levels but it seems some others feel it's too long. But in general, most aspects have been reworked in some capacity, mostly small changes.

  • +1

    I'd pay 5x this for a PS4 / PS5 edition :(

  • Rise and shine Mr Freeman!

  • Great game, well worth the money.

  • +2

    I think they went way overboard with the Xen stuff but everything else is fantastic.

    • +2

      Lol what no its not.

      • +1

        yes it is, you will almost run out of ammo

        • +2

          This is based on a game from the 90s where COD spam wasnt the norm. Dont be trigger happy and it will be fine.

  • +3

    Black Mesa is already in your Steam library (Purchased 27 Jun, 2021).
    Can't even remember buying it less than 2 months ago lol

    • actually closer to 3 months ago.

      • Indeed, and since you commented i am unable to edit it :P

  • +1

    I'm here just to show my appreciation for this game <3 <3

    • +1

      Without pressing the + on the deal?

      • Haha I scrolled down to the comments straight away. Just gave the deal a +1 and you a +1 cheers

  • +1

    Any way to play this Co-op? I thought I heard about a mod which would allow it…?

  • +1
    • +2

      Pretty sure when it hit historical low, the game was still in alpha/beta.

  • Played it ages back, well worth it to relive the OG. Or if you've never played but always wanted to, this is more accessible than original.

    Unfortunately I played through before they finished xen and I cbf revisiting now

    • Don't bother, Xen is easily the worst part of the this remake.

      • A lot of people felt the same way about Half-Life. I enjoyed it in both cases, but admit it was longer than necessary.

      • I actually started to enjoy the game a bit more when I hit the Xen levels. I couldn't understand what the fuss was with Black Mesa until then. But I realise I'm probably in the minority here

  • +1

    I remember playing HL1 when it first came out, blew my mind in terms of size, story, music etc

    Its been years since ive even seen it but i can remember all the levels, the sound effects etc

    The revolver packed a punch!

  • +1

    Can't wait for HL3! ..okay, that was cruel! ;D

    • At least there's Alyx now.

  • I've never played HL1, only HL2 so I'll give this a go. I need to finish Control first.
