As much as I enjoyed HL1, this expansion felt like a chore to play.
After the first 1/2 hour of gameplay all the battles were the same: peek around corner, shoot, dodge enemy fire, repeat.
90% of the time you're running around with less than 10 health and 250 bullets for your peashooter M16, the only good gun in my opinion being the shotgun with its double barrel ability.
The ending 'boss battle' if you can even call it that was incredibly anti climactic, not even similar to the one in the base game.

If you're looking for more HL, I'm afraid that this poor excuse of an expansion won't satisfy you.

Overall rating: 3/10, had some cool parts, but just not enough.

You should play this after finishing Half-Life 1! And after you finish this, play Blue Shift.

This is a good game if you want to play more in the Half-Life universe, and it adds a lot more monsters and weapons, although it could be considered too many to keep track of.

9/10

Half-Life: Opposing Force is an awesome expansion pack to the original Half-Life, but this time from the point of view of a Marine named Cpl. Adrian Shepard. The events in this game run parallel to the original so it's great to see how the other storylines unfold from a different perspective. There are a load of new weapons added and also a few new enemies to encounter. At times you will also have a squad to help you out which really gives gives the feel for some epic battles when it's your squad versus a horde of monsters. If you're itching for more Half-Life then this is a must play and is an awesome addition to Half-Life series.

A fine expansion. It builds upon the legendary HL gameplay (Run. Think. Shoot. Live.) and expands it with a myriad of new weapons, including many exotic ones, and many new enemies, mainly the menacing Race X. They will shoot you with lightning, poisonous darts and discharges of energy. Hazard Course was changed for a glorious Boot Camp where many drill sergeants (stereotyped after the film Full Metal Jacket) will degrade you to dirt bags, maggots and other derogatory existences. The game possesses a brilliant minimalistic soundtrack very different from the original Half-Life. AI is still quite buggy, doesn't like to follow you, gets stuck. There is no crowbar, all weapons were changed visually and functionally. There are many original features like the Barnacle Grapple that will help you latch onto organic objects and "suck" your way into them. M-40A1 Sniper Rifle, Shock Roach, Spore Launcher, XV11382, a laser sight Desert Eagle, all new toys. There are a few annoyances like operating the mortar and music stopping after loading. If you liked the original Half-Life you will love this.

Classic, fun, and challenging. When I got the fancy box with all the half life expansions after buying each game seperately...multiple times...I never got bored with the series. Opposing Force and Blue Shift are great expansions you should buy whenever it is opportune for you to do so.

Yeah, this game's pretty cool.
It's basically just more HL1
and that's always a good thing.
It's basically a mod with some sprite edits and map-packs.
It's pretty cool.
Did i say this game is pretty cool twice?
whatever.
I am going to nitpick a bit, though.
The main brainstorming idea of this game was "hey let's make a game where you play as the marines in hl1"
and that's not what this game is.
I expected a game where you gun down scientists and stuff.
But that's not what it was.
Anyway, this game is pretty cool.
I think i just said that again.
Whatever.

This is a nice alt view of Half-Life from the Marine Corps. side of things. New guns new aliens new maps its really fun and great for any fans of the original. Fair in length and difficulty.
