Ok. So. Lets imagine this was a free custom map. Nobody hates it . So then, add some custom content including a new pistol (which looks and feels worlds better than those in half life) textures for characters (or rather corpses), scripted sequences, decent music, voice acting and a second level. Now suddenly everyone hates it.

Why?

Now, I admit that some of the points are valid.

It lags. Yes, but that's because in the setting it's raining.

The amount of health kits. True, there are way to many health packs, but considering that you have to cross the deck twice, both times being attacked by the fearsome creatures of Xen, I think the developer made a fair assumtion that we would need this many.

The boss. I agree. It's crap.

The story. I don't think everyone has even thought about it.
So. You are aparently in another dimension, yet we spawn in a flash of lightning on a boat.
Does anyone remember how the xen monsters spawned? IN A FLASH OF LIGHTNING. How do you think a human would arrive? Also, the boat. Let me insert an extract from the Combine OverWiki.
"In addition to this legitimate research, several secret projects are also carried out at Black Mesa, which are deliberately left vague. A large amount of classified research is carried out, including the development of high-tech weapons and defense systems, research into extra-dimensional travel, teleportation, and the study of Xen."
So, we already know that Black mesa have been to other dimensions-is it so far fetched that black mesa have a boat in one of these dimensions?
So you travel to this dimension expecting it to be an easy collection; get the test sample and go-hence, you have no weaponry. But, you arrive and everyones dead. Xen creatures have manged to get aboard. How? we don't know You don't know Your character doesn't know nobody knows! But they are here and you have to fight them off. You eventually reach a survivor who opens the CARGO doors for you.

And before i finish, i'd like to mention a great scripted event most people have probably overlooked. As you make your way over the deck, you see the gman watching you. Then, just as you get close to the point he's at, you are distracted by some turrtes. You have to destroy them, and when you look back to where the G-man was, he's gone. That's just an example.

There is more I could mention, but multiple issues mentioned in other reviews have been cleared up now.

If we had to pay as much as a penny for this, I would agree. But we dont. ITS FREE. No price, no problem.

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.

Sadly, I did not like this game because it had too much music usage, and the boss was just a frozen model floating around
the map with a barnacle alien inside of it. The pistol was a good model, and I thought the ship was a good map as well, but everything seemed overrushed and cliched.

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

I was concerned when I saw this game in the steam library having mostly bad reviews. "Hmm," I said to myself ",a Half-Life fan-made mod that has bad reviews? Surely these reviewers are too picky." Well the picky reviewers were right, Half-Life: Before was bad. It's not like, 'unplayable' bad, or the 'spit-shine-on-game-release-shelves' bad that Call Of Duty does, it's just, bad. Creashock Studios, you could have made something cool out of this 1.5 level map (the map-count being one of the problems) but you didn't. The one thing awesome about Half-Life is everything isn't given to you in the first five seconds of game-play. As said erlier, this could have been really cool, telling the story of how the Crystal that was used in the first Half-Life game was discovered, it's power, etc. etc. AND answering the question of how the Crystal was aquired (without going to any lore videos and/or articles). Also, I was confused how Mr.Winner (I now realize why he was given that name) got onto the ship to begin with, a lighting bold hit it, and Poof, he's there. The map count could have been increased, the boss could have been more than a moveless shell with a barnicle as it's wepon, and the list goes on and on. I think what was supposed to happen is they were trying to make Half-Life a (do not quote me on this) Spunk-Gargle-Wee-Wee game, like Call Of Duty. But over-all, it was bad.

This in all honesty was pretty darn fun. It wasn't very long and lagged a bit, but for the half hour it took me to beat it, I had a good time.

The music is fantastic, far better than in the original Half-Life, and is actually programmed better too.

Yes, I did enjoy this mod, but it was too darn short and I honestly thought I would get to travel to more parallel dimensions.

Even though the mod isn't all that great.. it was still kind of neat and fun to play. Yes, it has it's issues but it's overally fun! I recommend giving it a try, even if you won't ever play it again. :)
