Ive been a steam user for 9 years, i loved the goldsource games, i even have the original WON version of Half-Life. I Love the Half-Life series and its mods. This game is not one of the games i love.
Sure it may look like the original half-life with uppgraded graphics.
Sure it may "Feel" like the original Half-Life untill the bugs happen...
When i reinstalled the game to see why i havent played this version of the game i finnaly rememberd..
This game has gamebreaking bugs, that will halt your progress. First of all, let me list down the issues i had when starting this game
If your steam is in any other language other than English, the main menu will say #clickeble menu ON EVERY OPTION. You will have to change the language on steam to English!
When playing, sometimes when you explore before "unforseen consequenses" be sure to pick up your suit before you talk to the guard or else, your save will be corrupted.
When in missile silo, where the tentacles are, resetting the power to the machine to later turn on the fuel, the hatch leading to the fuel will be permanently closed. For me there is no fix.
When the game needs the user to open up the console and cheat to get it working, then you know its wrong.
The game feels like it was halfassed. Every element in this game feels flawed compared to Half-Life (Goldsource). Where skripts to open doors will fail to load. Events wont happen. Buy Half-Life instead of this. I cant stress that enough..
