Half Life Blue Shift is as good as Half Life, I Love the viewpoint. It's more or less the same as Half Life. So if your just craving more Half Life, this is your game.

Short game, but better than Half Life but not as great as Opposing Forces. There are less weapons to chose from and none are new. Only great aspect of this expansion is that you get to see more of Black mesa. Mechnics are essentially the same Half Life. Nothing new is offered aside from a different perspective on the Black Mesa incident.

Gives you a better view of what it's like to work at Black Mesa. I just wish there was some sort of Black Mesa simulator mod so you could simulate being a security guard or scientist at Black Mesa before the incident.

Half-Life Blue Shift is a fun game. It does have problems though. Compared to Half-Life 1 and Opposing Force, this is the least good out of the three. It didn't introduce any new enemies or guns. It also didn't really have any awesome boss fights like the other two before it. The storyline isn't nearly as in depth or good as HL1 or OF. The game is SIGNIFICANTLY shorter than HL1 and OF. Nothing really new came out of the game. I feel that the makers of the game could've done a way better job. However, since I am a big Half-Life fan, I do think this game is fun to play. There are moments where the combat is intense. I would say it's a nice little game to play and finish in one weekend. It was worth the 99 cents I payed in the summer sale. If you're a Half-Life fan, you at least owe it to yourself and the series to pick up the game and play it.

The second “interquel” to Half-Life is lived through the eyes of Barney Calhoun, a security officer at Black Mesa, that is seen by Gordon Freeman at the very beginning of the game. This game also takes place at the same time as Half-Life, but starts before the incident and is chronologically placed prior to Opposing Force. Barney’s journey through Black Mesa isn’t an easy one, but surely it is a short one, as Blue Shift is even shorter than Opposing Force. Also, the game doesn’t add any major improvements over other games in the series, and is thus to be considered just another expansion of the story. A really nice one at that, at it deserves a playthrough for sure, but the story will be over very soon. Unfortunately.

Short and kinda unimaginative compared to Opposing Force. My biggest issue is some of the puzzles are far-fetched and too subtle, like when you need to find that ladder hidden behind a pipe facing a dead end. But hey, it's still Half-Life!

This is a very Half-@55ed expansion to Half-Life 1. The 99 cents i payed for it on the summer sale is still questionable when it comes to the value on this. No new weapons or new enemies and it's very short. This expansion was obviously made to be a quick easy buck for Valve. It very much reminds me of the Doom 3 Lost Mission expansion when it comes to quality, because of how much effort was put into this. This expansion was riding on the success of Half-Life 1 and the Opposing Force expansion. Too many people were drinking the Valve koolaid on this one and were giving undeserved praise to it. The regular 5 dollar price for this expansion is insane. If you absouletly need to have this because you feel like you need the entire Half-Life collection or you feel the need to step into the shoes of Barney Calhoun before Half-Life 2, wait until it goes on sale.

My personal favorite of the Half-Life Expansions.

You play Barney the security guard, just going through your normal routines. Helping scientists with degrees in theoretical physics and years of experience push an Elevator button. Unfortunately for you, that button somehow ♥♥♥♥s everything up, and aliens invade Black Mesa, killing all.

It's much shorter than the first, or even Opposing force, but in a way, it feels much more unique. Give it a try, I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised.

A very short but scintillating expansion. I honestly don't know or don't care why the reviewers scolded this little, innocent expansion so much. It shows us that cute Barney is also a murdering machine which is great I say. The game introduced the Half-Life HD pack. It also has some pretty original puzzles, making the copy-paste Half-Life gameplay a little more sufferable, for the third time in a row. It can't compare with Opposing Force with originality though. It doesn't add new weapons, but it is as full of details as the previous two games. It also has a happy ending, without you being obligatorily captured by G-Man. It features a great character named Dr. Rosenberg that you will interact with and help him escape Black Mesa. Oh and you can see Gordon Freeman himself at least 3 times during the play. It's a must for any Half-Life fan, even though it's that short and not extremely inventive, gameplay and story-wise.

It's a fun expansion pack to the original Half-Life game, sharing the gameplay style and features of the original.

A great although be it short side story that runs about to the 1/2 way point of Half-Life with a few cameos. Get on sale since its pretty short.

this game is a MASTERPIECE and i emphasize masterpiece using caps because I accidently clicked the caps lock key. This is by far the greatest half life game i've played because of the emphasis on story over combat and a refreshing change of point of view. if youre a half life fan then chances are you already have this game, but if youre not a half life fan i suggest this game.

What I liked about the game
• Half-life blue shift is short, but sweet. With good level design, there are many secret ammunition stashes to be found and there are many puzzles to solve.
• Not too challenging like opposing force, which makes a more enjoyable experience.
• It’s great to be playing as another character from Black Mesa, seeing his perspective, seeing what events uncover for him and how he escapes from Black Mesa.
• Another brilliant ending.
What I disliked or was disappointed with
• No new content( no new enemies, no new weapons and no bosses)
• The game is short, took me less than 3hours to complete.
• The puzzles aren’t as good in blue shift, compared to half-life and opposing force.

Conclusion
A very good expansion pack for half-life. I preferred it over opposing force, because the gameplay was much more enjoyable and not too difficult. If you enjoyed half-life and opposing force, I highly recommend you play this. 80/100
