    This is perfect for me since I never finished the original Half-Life. I've grabbed it and started it up. Looks much better than I remember HL and even Blue Shift looking.

    After playing through most of this mod, I must say I'm terribly disappointed. The AI is horrible, jumping is a joke, there is no indication you're about to be killed. The game is frustrating. I prefer the original Half-Life: Source even if the graphics are a bit worse... at least the game is balanced and fun. There also isn't much if any more story-line. Very disappointing mod.

    Mod? I thought it was a re-hash of the original game but taking better advantage of the Source engine.

    Comment fail. This game is not a remake of the original game but original game with updated graphics. If you don't like the story, go complain to Valve.

    Reply fail. The developers specifically stated they would be expanding on the storyline by filling in gaps and adding stuff etc.
