HALF-LIFE:BEFORE Un pò difficile trovare le parole per descriverlo,ma andiamo con calma con i punti del gioco.
STORIA:La storia è un prequel di Half-Life in cui impersoneremo Andrew Winner,uno scenziato che ha il compito di recuperare il campione di cristallo puro di tipo sconosciuto visto proprio nel primo da una nave porta carichi.Però,durante il suo cammino,noi,verremo ostacolati da alieni e soldati (quest'ultimi non si sa come siano già finiti qui,ma la storia stranamente non spiega nulla).
GRAFICA:IL motore grafico è il GoldSrc già visto in Half-Life,con armi e grafica della High Definition Pack con qualche piccola modifica in fatto di poligoni e un modello della pistola nuovo e carino,ma poi niente di speciale.Le sequenze scriptate con una telecamera in terza persona sono ben fatte,ma ve ne sono alcune in cui per esempio un topo muore,ma lo fa all'infinito.Un bug durante il gioco è possibile da vedere durante la caduta dell'ascensore in cui,arrivato schiantandosi,sentiremo urlare un'addetto (con un modello dello scienziato modificato) e per qualche secondo lo vedremo in piedi e poi si spappolerà in mille pezzi leggermente in ritardo.
AUDIO:L'audio è quasi lo stesso di Half-Life (a parte per la pistola).Le musiche ci accopangneranno per l'intera durata del gioco e devo ammettere che sono davvero ben realizzate.
ARMI:Le armi sono quasi tutte le stesse con qualche mancanza e con qualche modifica come la skin nera della balestra e il modello e i suoni nuovi per la pistola.
IA:L'intelligenza artficiale è buona,ma ha alcuni difetti.Es.:Se voi vi trovate dietro ad un passamano ed il nemico (in questi due casi un Alien Grunt) si trova oltre oppure vi trovate ad una media o lunga distanza e il nemico si trova dietro il passamano,potrete colpiro senza problemi con l'Hive Hand.
BOSS FINALE:Ho deciso di dire la mia anche sul boss di fine partita.Il boss,purtroppo,non è per niente originale,infatti, è lo stesso modello di Nihilanth (il boss di Half-Life) con texture chiarissime,messo in orizzontale,non muovendo gli arti e con un cirripede con texture bianche attaccato alla bocca (si,è proprio un cirripede attaccato alla sua bocca) che userà (come tutti i cirripedi di HL) la sua lingua per catturarvi e ferirvi,solo che se vi cattura,non fate in tempo a liberarvi e vi colpirà,perderete instantaneamente."Wow!".SPOILER ALERT:Lui ha preso il campione che dovete recuperare e dovete ucciderlo per riaverlo.FINE.
Conclusioni:Dalla trama poteva essere promettente,ma a causa del boss,della breve durata di gioco,e di nessuna novità sotto l'aspetto tecnico,grafico e delle armi,questa mod ha deluso le mie aspettative per un prequel per Half-Life.Davvero un peccato.
Spero di esservi stato utile.

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.

!!SPOILERS!! THE WHOLE PLOT IS BELOW !!SPOILERS!!
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.

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.

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.

The game can be finished in about 5 minuites, this is something you would download off a mod website.

It is just 2 maps, thats it. The final boss dies in under 20 seconds.

This game is an insult to the Half-Life name. An incoherent story mixed with crappy level design and a play time shorter than the length of this review. I'm being nice right now.

Ever thought you'd see a bad half life game?
Well now you do.
Let's do the checklist:

Stupidly small
Stupid AI
Story not well written
No lipsyncing
Baad gramur al aruund
Final boss is easy (run and shoot at him, end of)
Easy as hell puzzles

I can go on, but i'm not wasting time on this
Half-life is great, this isn't.
Greenlight control is needed

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.

Look, I can see what they were trying to do. Some people who loved Half-Life tried to mod the game and create a prequel for their favourite franchise. You can appreciate it for it's heart.

Not much else.
