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.

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 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. :)
