Over dit spel

Het debuut van Valve is in meer dan 50 publicaties genomineerd als Game of the Year. Het spel is een mengeling van actie en avontuur, waarbij bekroonde technologie wordt ingezet om een angstaanjagend realistische wereld te creëren waarin spelers hun hersens moeten gebruiken om te overleven. Nog spannender wordt het als je met meerdere spelers gaat spelen en het opneemt tegen vriend en vijand over de hele wereld.

So much nostalgy. I play it after 13 years and I remember it was so painful to beat it. Now I play it on hard and it´s a cakewalk. But truly beautiful. You must have Half Life if you love fps games. Masterpiece....

They just killed Cash. Now, they want to kill him again. America is full of run down, broken rust-belt towns where nobody cares and anything goes. In Carcer City, nothing matters anymore and all that's left are cheap thrills. The ultimate rush is the power to grant life and take it away, for sport.

Je to dobra hra ale stratil som pri nej veľmi vela trpezlivosti a po hodine mi robili problem aj najlahšie leveli ak sa vám podarí celú hru održať aspoň 25 života tak tlieskam lebo 40 percent hry som strávil s jednym životom. Nie je ako nove hry čo vas usmernia kam ísť ale musíte si nájsť cestu aj keď je to náročne lebo niektore cesty musiete skusiť niekolko krát lebo sa tam neda hocijako dostať a musite skakať niekolko krat musite strielať niekolko krat atď. No napriklad je skvela klavesa f6 ktora vam !edykoľvek uloží hru vela zbraní ktoré časom nachádzate a multiplayer je to dobrahra ale ja by som volil radšej portal ako half life no portal ma zložitejší príbeh a zabudol som na jedno pre- môžete zo sebov zobrať strážnika(striela) alebo ho zabiť pre muníciu ale doktora aby vás healoval

i can't believe im playing a game thats older thin me i mean i don't want to argue too much about it but ITS JUST. SO OLD the only reason i buyed it. is though out my life people just can't shut up about it i mean. yea it may have been good in the day. but to day it may as well be free instead it cost 12 dollors,.. of cause i buyed it when it was 80 percent off. so if your one of thows very rare ones like me who has int' played one of the famous t games of all time and want to get it. just to show that you've played half life and finally can say that you've played it to your friends. you could buy it but buy it when its on specal. its really over priced. and the stroy gos on for ever =]. and no one wants to play a very awful graphics game that long ;[

This is going to be a controversial review.

Half-Life is a great game, historically. But it has aged poorly.

The controls of this game leave a lot to be desired. Movement is glitchy, over paced and at times hard to judge, especially by the standards of games today. It is too easy to get yourself into a position that you cannot get out of, even if what is blocking your way is literally only knee height, which given the light puzzle solving continuity, is easy to get yourself into repeatedly, as you explore the world to be able to progress. The movement is such that dying or taking damage will be more likely a split of 75-25 in favour of self-inflicted damage from falling or moving onto or into hazardous locations.

The puzzle solving and progression of the game map, as well as the layout and structure is too much like a platform game. Having at times to jump or dodge between unrealistic, incomprehensible and illogical structures that move, shift and twist. At times I wonder if I'm playing something like Croc or Spyro.

The FPS elements are awkward and clumsy, again by the standards of today. The sound effects of weapons are scratchy and annoying and as it's an old game, the animations aren't the best (but we can forgive the graphics).

The story element is the best part of Half-Life, and it still stands up, (to a point). The game is clearly a mish-mash of FPS, action, puzzle solving, platform and story, with no single element being strong enough to carry the game solely. We get glimpses of story, mostly from the commentary of individuals found in the Black Mesa complex, be they scientist, security guard or military.

In the end, I feel that Half-Life was a great game when it was released in the late 90's, and considering the age of the game, it does well. But there are better games today. We view this game I feel through rose coloured glasses, especially those of us that played it when it was first released. But like a TV show that we might have watched when we were younger, playing it again can destroy the fond memories we have of it. As such, this game is best consigned to the archives as a great game that was, and a giant of yesterday that today's games stand on the shoulders of.

What to say about Half Life.....

Okay, let me say that I originally bought the game\'s Game of the Year edition(included Team Fortress Classic) back in...... what? \'98? Early \'99 maybe? Anyway...... The hours you see logged for this game under Steam are WAY off. I didn\'t make the switch from WON to Steam until it was forced on us in 2004.

What to say about the game itself.... put simply; it\'s AMAZING! When I saw the initial opening scenes..... I was blown away.

16 years later, I\'m still playing it, and I still find it a bit of a challenge.

Half Life re-defined the FPS genre, and in such a positive way, it is still selling. It can be argued that the graphics are dated, and perhapse they are. Personally, I don\'t think so. I think they are as much a part of the game as the abilities you get as Gordon Freeman.

Half Life won over 50 Game of the Year awards, and rightly so. If you enjoy FPS games, and this game isn\'t in your collection..... GET IT! It has a great blend of action, stuff to destroy, things to make you think, and lots of hidden Easter Eggs.

The success of this game started it all for Valve. Team Fortress, Counter-Strike and countless amounts of other mods. It had become a hallmark of FPS quality for many years to come until Half-Life 2 came out to raise the bar even higher. This legendary status helps to alleviate the ravages of time the graphics have suffered. But, as any Counter-Strike player will tell you, it is not that bad considering the age of the game, it's still approachable for younger players. The game's design is very variable and interactive, which cannot be said about a myriad of modern shooters. The remarkable sound and authentic music will help to create a memorable, mysterious, sci-fi atmosphere. Xen, being the most criticized part of the game, seemed quite enjoyable to me. It offers a much needed diversion from the rest of the game, most of which takes place in steel corridors. This game represents a milestone, thanks to which a series of events lead to the creation of our beloved Steam. Praise be Half-Life, the Almighty! :)

Half Life 1 is my favorite in the series, it's where it all started and I just love how immersive the game can be. The story as well is quite good and I just appreciate how the game does not take away control from you. Pick this up if you haven't played it, it's a must buy for PC intiates. Do not buy Half Life Source because that version is borked beyond recognition at this point.

Game: Half-Life
Developer and publisher: Valve Software
Released: 8 November, 1998
Genre: First-Person Shooter
Setting: 16-17 May, 2003, Black Mesa Research Facility, New Mexico, U.S.A., Earth
Spoiler-free plot summary: You play as Gordon Freeman, a theoretical physicist equipped with a Hazardous Environment Suit and an arsenal of military-grade weapons. After an experiment with an alien crystal goes wrong, creatures from another world begin teleporting into the facility and are attacking all humans on sight. You are tasked by your fellow scientists to travel to the other side of Black Mesa, to its Lambda Complex, in order to stop the alien invasion.

Full review: Half-Life is the first game released to be set in the Half-Life/Portal universe. It's one of the few games I keep coming back to play, and in my honest opinion, I think it's better than Half-Life 2.

Half-Life is a typical FPS of the late '90s-early '00s; linear gameplay, a variety of weapons, and puzzle-based objectives.

Half-Life can take probably 4 - 6 hours to complete, depending on how fast one usually plays an FPS; everyone has their own style. Personally, I think 4 - 6 hours is the perfect length to play this game; the environments are varied (science labs, abandoned rocket silos, the desert, an alien world), the combat is fair and fluid, the puzzles are mostly easy, and the story, or lack of, doesn't get in the way of the running-and-gunning. Though, eventually, things do get a tad repetitive, but thankfully just barely and the game finishes soon after.

A short, simple review for a short, simple game. Do I recommend buying Half-Life? Yes, especially if you're in the mood for an FPS that can entertain you for the day. For NZD$11.99, I'd wait for a sale for when this game is $5 - $6 before buying it.

Half-Life also has a third-party remake in the works called Black Mesa, which is built in the same engine as Half-Life 2. I recommend buying and playing it if you think the original Half-Life hasn't aged that well, or are one of the many people who played Half-Life 2 first and want a more familiar experience with the first Half-Life.
