An “interquel” to Half-Life that can be finished in a week-end, but that will prove your skills and wits. In this game you play as Adrian Shephard, one of the marines that in the original game actually try to “contain” the outbreak from Black Mesa. Shephard, though, faces his own problems as he is separated from his team and needs to find a way out of the complex, by now overrun by aliens. The game takes place during the latter part of Half-Life and besides being an interesting story to live, it also adds some new mechanics to the Valve formula, providing both story- and gameplay-wise an interesting second trip into Black Mesa at the time of the accident “caused” by Gordon Freeman. A good game, worth a shot.

A MUST BUY? HELL YEA!
You can still play this game and have a nice time in 2016. This piece of art came out in 1999. Still has awesome moments. Buy all the Half Life 1 games for the full experience.

SO A LITTLE TUTORIAL:
1- Buy all the Half-Life 1 games (This + HL 1 + HL Blue Shift)

2-Play Blue Shift (For da plot)

3- Play Half-Life 1 (Because it's the most worked on)

4-Play Opposing Force (Because it adds SOOO much things to Half-Life 1)

So finally you'll be filled up with good plot. (And some nice moments in your mind.)

A much better and longer expansion than Blue Shift though not without its fair share of bugs, e.g. last chapter fails to load on *NIX. Yet the content is solid -- love that MG.

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.

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.

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.

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.
