Un très mauvais mod de HL1 à la fois inintéressant et incompréhensible mais qui en plus ne demande que 15 minutes pour être terminer ! Je ne comprend absolument pas pourquoi ce truc est sur steam...

Je recommande sans recommander. Je suis un mordu du monde de Half Life et de tous les mods qui peuvent tourner autour, l'ambition est là, mais rien derrière, on comprends difficilement ce qui se passe, et tout se termine si brusquement et rapidement.
Il pourrait y avoir des mods bien plus intéressant pour Half Life 1 sur Steam, comme un lien direct pour Zombie Panic, qui lui, est un multi très sympa, mais au vu de la quantités et qualités des mods qu'il y a pour Half Life, pourquoi celui là ?

That is the question...

Half-Life Before is well... REALLY REALLY short. Like mabey 15 minutes. But this doesnt take away from the fun of the game. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a good time but doesnt have much of that time to their disposal.

I'm not entirely sure what the aim of creating this game was.

Let me explain;

Nothing is explained. Why do you magically zap on to a boat? Why is the crystal on the boat? Why do you need to retrieve it in the first place from the boat and not on Xen? Why were the Xen creatures already there before the resonance cascade?

Why?

WHY?

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?

All of this is completely unanswered, but this is just the start. [Spoilers]

Once you magically apear upon the boat, seemingly sent by Zeus, you pickup almost all of the weapons available in the game, instantly making it very easy. If that didn't make it easy enough for you, then you're in luck! Right in front of you is a conveniently placed helicopter, complete with a mounted machine gun, meaning all those Xen creatures are dead before you move 10 metres.

Once you finally reach the main cabin, you are greeted by 3 turrets, which are easily avoidable. In fact, there are 100s of better locations for them, which would have proved challenging, however, the creators were obviously not in a creative mood, so decided to place them right in the open, however, they did take the time to ensure even spacing, which was a nice touch.

Next, you are inside, where you'll reach the lift, clamber through the overhead opening, and up the tedious ladder, and eventually reach the control deck, where you're warmly greeted by 3 soldiers, seemingly oblivious to the Xen creatures which have engulfed their ship.

After this, and a few random Xen creatures which magically appear, you find a man. The soldiers also seemed oblivious to him, which is surprising as he was literally next to them. The man is the most socially awkward NPC I've ever encountered, and was a walk suitable for the Ministry of Silly Walks. He opens a security coded box for you, containing a med kit. This was much needed, as the previous 20 were not quite enough. He the proceeds to open the cargo doors, containing a dangerous creature, which is obviously the best idea. On top of this, he automatically knows why you're there. No questions asked.

You then need to BACKTRACK THE WHOLE MAP in order to reach the cargo hold. Of course, it should be a nice brisk walk, after all, you have just defeated all the creatures, right? Wrong. They've respawned, and in seemingly higher numbers. Once you battle your way through the Battle of Somme, you reach the cargo doors. At first, I wasn't sure what to do, as surely if I jump in I'd die? I discovered that jumping in to a gaping dark hole actually heals you, which was a nice surprise.

So, the boss fight. Before anything even begins, you get to endure a lovely cutscene where the boss sucks up the crystals, which once again begs the question, why?

You've spent the whole game (10 minutes) collecting all the weapons in the game, conserving your ammo, well guess what? They're all gone. You can pickup a few off the floor, but ammo is almost non-existent. The boss itself is, well... interesting. It is a down-sized and retextured version of Nihilanth, and completely lacks any form of animation. To me, it resembles a over-stuffed teddy bear, so stiff that it puts viagra to shame.

Once you've finally defeated him, (Cooked grenades seem to work well), that's it. That's literally it. The boss shatters like if I picked up your vase and threw it on the ground. Oh and the crystals? Gone.

The final credits/cutscene shows the crystals in a different location, which I can only assume is suppose to represent Black Mesa. I don't think I can truly express how underwhelming this game is. The idea of Half-Life: Before is brilliant, but this game, is certainly not brilliant.

This game started off ok but got bad quite quick.
First off you get almost every weapon in the first area. Not that bad but you also face almost every single monster in the game in the same stage.
After this fight you get to the tower. In my case I was below half health. You encounter a room with 3 soldiers in it. Ok. Kill them and begin to explore the room. Now after this fight you're probably low on health. So what happens next? The room is flooded with snarks. Took me several attempts to survive.
You get through that and go into a room in which you encounter the first living other person. You get the crossbow and he opens a big door. Really thinking of Jurrasic Park. Apparently theres a big scary monster in the hanger. So we open the doors.
You are then forced to back track all the way to the begining. Which has magically been repopulated with aliens.
You eventually reach the hanger and face a really glitchy cutscene. Which is unskippable. The "big scary monster appears" which is really a reteaxtured barnicle attached to a ragdoll of the final Half Life boss.
You get into the fight and realise that you have NO weapons. They are lying around you. This means that, no matter how conservative you have been, you combat the boss with next to no ammo. The boss is not even that hard. Although if you get caught on the barnicle tounge its almost an instant kill. If you die you have to go through the cutscene again.
You kill the boss and take the crystals. End of the game. Thats it. Its meant to be backstory but its just a shoot em' up. The final boss is just a bit stronger than the rest.
The best bit of the game was probably the final, non glitchy, cutscene.

Short and definitely not sweet. I was expecting more of a story, something to get my Half life fix but ended up playing something I couldve passed on. Cutscene at the end was my favorite part

This is a very short series of maps (not an mod), and while it may look nice, many have done better and the "story" is lackluster. To anyone who's played the first Half-Life, this looks nicer, but that's about it. The actual "game" lasts about half an hour max, and the finals boss blows.

I rate this 2/10.

This game (if you can even call it a game) took me about 3 mins to beat. It is ridiculously short. There is only 2 maps: The boat, and the boat again. The boss is just hl1's final boss with a barnacle in its mouth. The game TRIES to look good in it's trailer but its not. This mod makes me want to smash my balls into the closest door and put a blender on my ♥♥♥♥. Please... dont download this load of dog crap. 0/10 -ign

This mod like child who dropped on head. It not work right with many crashes if you try to reload level. Also, game has short life which is less than half life.

Game basically mean you start on ship crossing channel trying to get 5 bedroom house after war in Syria. You need to push boxes around full of cousin Mo's Adidas shirts. It is crazy! After climbing over and getting into ship you play mini horror setting with swinging doors. Lift broken so use more boxes to climb into roofing and up ladder. You kill many marine which is only good part then save man who do ship controls.

The next part you need to go back across ship again to start. This is much like Halo game where levels are made to feel massive by having you walk back across every part you already seen. After getting to end of ship you fall into pit then have boss fight with Tim Henman's ego.

After fight you get water boarded and then credits crash on you.

Spoiler alert.

This mod like eighth wife. Do not play. It is not good.

Despite being made by a supposedly devoted Half-Life fan, this mod misses pretty much everything that made original HL good. It is hard to lay down any criticism though, when the mod is completely free to play. In my humble opinion, I think Half-Life: Before is a below average shooter, that could have been better if all textures and character models would have been made from the scratch, and the game would have been completely detached from HL universe. Now the title misleads into expecting quality.

The pistol model looks and feel good though.
