This mod isn't terrible, but it certainly isn't good either.

First off, it's ridiculously short. About 10 minutes through the game, you already have all of the weapons in the game. Then the game gives the ultimate "f*ck you" and takes them all away. You can pickup a few guns from the enemies, but they're useless. It takes about five shots to kill you,but for them, it can take 8 or more, and they're smaller than you! How does that make sense?

Next, there are few maps. Very few. Only 2 maps exist in the game, and nothing else. It would really be nice to travel to other places in the game, but you're stuck in this dinky boat the whole time (which is somehow infested with Houndeyes and Headcrabs? What?).

Then when you got everything done, you have to BACKTRACK TO YOUR SPAWN POINT AT THE VERY BEGGINING OF THE GOD DAMN MAP. You have to climb over cargo crates, kill more aliens, and get useless junk to get back to the spawn point. The aliens respawn in higher numbers, too, so good luck trying to kill all of them without dying. Then you fight the final boss...this must be good, right?

No.

Not even close.

The final "boss" is a huge dissapointment. It's just Nihilanth with a Barnicle in his mouth and floats around, and jsut takes grenades to kill him. He isn't event hat hard to beat, he just floats in the air, like he just wants to die.

And after that? The end.

It's over.

Just ends.

I'm so happy.

The best part is that you never know what happens to the crystals. Not that you would care, anyway.

"Is a modification for Half-Life with new levels-" let me cut you off right there, mod description... no, not levels...a level.
One level. One really bad level.
However if you're looking for a quick mod to play for lulz, because it was fun to play.
However keep in mind it was fun because I got a new half-life level to play.

NOT because it was good.

This mod is bad. Not worth the 30 minutes I spent playing the entire game. Honestly the best part about the game, are the Pistol and Crossbow animation models, but that's literally it. Uninspired, Uninteresting, and one of the ♥♥♥♥♥iest boss fights I've ever been through. It is free so it won't hurt your wallet, but I reccomend avoiding this game. If you look at the other games that this guy has developed, I think you'll have a good idea surrounding the quality in his games.

Half-Life: Before, what to say about this. A mod that was greenlit on Steam Greenlight. Was it worth it? NO.

Pros:
+At least the pistol model looks nice.

Cons:
-Boring
-Bad voice acting
-The final boss is a barnacle that looks like the Nihilanth.
-The scientist that you rescue's mouth doesn't move when he talks.
-Boring
-No plot at all
-Boring
-Boring
-BORING

Overall, DON'T DOWNLOAD HL: BEFORE. I know it's free, but don't get it. It's Boring and lazy. Just, don't.

While its not THAT BAD, its still pretty bad.

If you're expecting a story like the other Half-Life games, you aren't going to find it here. The story in this game doesn't make any canonical sense. It implies that before the events of the Black Mesa Incident, there were places where these aliens could be found beyond Xen, and that humans had been turned into headcrab zombies before. The physics puzzles in this game are annoying as hell too. You have to push these really heavy boxes while you're getting attacked by at least 5 aliens so that you can climb to the next area, its annoying as hell. On top of that, there are also soldiers that are apparently helping the aliens to make sure you don't get the crystal, as if it didn't get any more confusing. Oh but it gets better, the final boss is apparently supposed to be a younger version of the Nihilanth from Half-Life 1. It has the laziest AI I've ever seen - it just chases you in circles and it has a barnacle tounge that you cannot escape from, and if he gets you, you have to watch the entire cutscene where he spawns again. At that point I just said ♥♥♥♥ it and stopped playing.

TL;DR - Don't play it.

This mod requires ownership and installation of Half-Life. This review also assumes you already own and have completed Half-Life, my review of which can be read here.

Mod: Half-Life: Before
For the game: Half-Life
Developer and publisher: Andrii Vintsevych
Released: 4 December, 2013
Genre: First-Person Shooter
Canon status: Non-canon
Setting: 2003, Black Rock, the middle of the ocean, Earth
Spoiler-free plot summary: Sometime before the events of Half-Life, you, Andrew Winner, are teleported onto a research vessel of Black Mesa's called the Black Rock. You are tasked with eliminating the alien hostiles and their military handlers, and to retrieve an alien crystal.

Full review: Half-Life: Before is a half-hour-long prequel to Half-Life about how Black Mesa retrieved the Xen crystal. Other than that, there is no story. This mod is also incredibly easy.

You've got your basic Half-Life gameplay with only a few new things:
* Custom HD animations, models, skins, and soundtrack have been added.
* NPCs (or the one and only non-hostile NPC in this mod) have subtitles, whereas Valve didn't give any to the NPCs in Half-Life.

However, this mod is filled with more negatives than positives:
* The AI of the hostile humans is incredibly dumb, not reacting when being shot or when their allies run past them or die, and only react when you're in their field-of-view.
* What few "puzzles" that exist require very little brainwork.
* The soundtrack, though good, plays at random, inappropriate times.
* The boss is an unanimated copy of the Nihilanth from Half-Life with a Barnacle tongue that chases you around a square room.

Do I recommend Half-Life: Before? No; it has very little to give to your valuable time, and there are far better mods out there on the Internet that are far more enjoyable and of higher quality.

Actually very good Half-Life mod and if you're HL fan, you should play this, but it's so short.
In this game you'll find out how all began in 1st Half-Life.
Game is free if you got Half-Life 1.

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. This is amazing game, really. Not many games gets us into brainstorming about WHAT THE ♥♥♥♥ ACTUALLY HAPPENED. So, if someone didn't get the plot: You're on your mission to stop Gabe Newell's madness. He greenlights alot of horrible games, You make your way trough brainless zombies AKA steam greenlighters that voted for this and probably most of the mobile games that are on steam at this moment. So, after you get trough that and get on captain's desk, you see that ship is under control of INSANE MOD MAKERS, they're trying to get their mod greenlit and nothing going to stop them. Except you. So, after dealing with that, you think it's finally over. But no, the only sane person on this ship reveals himself. They locked that poor guy because he didn't agree on getting this game greenlit. They possibly bullied him, he got terrified, that's why his grammar is so affected. He tells you that Gaben got completely mad, he greenlit ALL of the horrible games out there. Guy opens a "cavgo doors" for you, you fall inside just to meet Gaben face to face. Then, you see him. He consumes dorrito and gets very powerful. After that, he tries to lick your private places. But BOOM. You did it. Madness has stopped. No more ♥♥♥♥♥♥ greenlight games on steam. You make dorrito that fell from his exploded belly your trophy. And that's the end. But i got it that it was another demension all along, that's why madness haven't stopped in our world. AND THAT'S WHY THIS GAME IS GREENLIT DAMMNIT

Was that all? I'm throughly disappointed. The creator could have done a lot better than... this.

Two levels that you can blow through in about 10 minutes. Don't tell me that this is actually acceptable. A game gets accepted for Steam, the most popular gaming platform on PC, and this is what we get?

The fact that this is called a challenge is nothing short of laughable. It might be the easiest mod I've ever played.

There are lots of grammatical errors, too. The developer of this mod's first language isn't English, that's for sure. The least he could've done is get someone to spellcheck.

Don't waste your time on this.

Extremely short mod, could be just a custom map for half-life and you can easily beat it in less than 10 minutes.
