Only started playing half-life recently. I love it!

My concerns when playing older games: are the controls reasonably easy to use? They are in this game. And you can re-bind them.

This game's got more variety than The Ed Sullivan Show. Tired of shooting aliens? Here's some Marines to shoot. Tired of shooting things? Here's some platforming. Tired of running around the corridors of a research facility? Here's some desert canyons to navigate. Tired of Earth's gravity? Here's some low-gravity alien terriain to bounce around.

This game is simply amazing for a game made in 1998. Its graphics are older, yes but it has been a challenging puzzle game. The storyline is also a bit easy to follow. The weapon selection is actually larger than Gmod or HL2 with up to ~15 weapons.The ending and opening scenes are also quite amazing. The only problem I found was controlling the long jump module, which is crouch-jumping. All-in-all, give it a go, its a remarkable and memorable game. 10/10

Shortest way to determine if you should buy this game or not.

Is it in your Steam Library? No?

Then, yes. You should buy it.

Amazing experience!
When I was little, I used to casually play HF1 and 2, as well as CS1.6 and Source with my father, but never tried to play by myself. Also, english isn't my primary language, so I never undestood what was happening.
Now, as I decided to play all the Half Lifes chronologically, it's just INCREDIBLE! A series like this really deserves its place at the heart of gamers.
Already played HF1, Opposing Force and Blue Shift, now going to the savage land known as HF2.
Oh, I didn't play the Black Mesa "remastered" version, but as I don't care that much about graphics, I found the experience with the old engine pretty unique

Half-Life, a classic that still got it to this day.

I simply love the way the game just involves you in the story despite being a first person shooter at heart, a thing many games can't seem to accomplish today being either pure fps or completely plot focused. The reason I'm saying this is because I'm not really into the FPS genre, I dislike it quite heavily. But this game is just different.

All of the game's elements just come together to form this excellent masterpiece.

You have a good variety of weapons, not too few not too many, the level design is perfect although it can be quite debatable as some levels are just too long but good nonetheless as they all contribute and add to the story, the pace of the story is good and the FPS element of the game is well implemented and quite enjoyable (for someone who doesn't like FPS's this game had me blown away).

There's one area where this game shows it's age; graphics.
I personally don't mind them and I think they add to the overall appeal of the game but they can be a bother to other people.

I definitely recommend this. 10/10 would Gordon Freeman again.

Despite its age, Half-Life is still one of the greatest examples of organic storytelling in video games. Valve’s debut title succeeds where most modern games fail—in telling a story without interrupting the game’s pacing or forcing its narrative down the player’s throat.

In fact, the only time Half-Life interrupts it’s frenetic pace is to spoon feed you simplistic puzzles designed to showcase Valve’s fancy 'GoldSrc' engine, and while I’m sure it all looked fantastic back in 1998, it’s lost its relevance, and the frequent interruptions to the game are totally arbitrary now that we’ve seen things like physics engines become commonplace.

Despite technological shortcomings, the way Half-Life tells a story is better than any that came before it and most that came after it. It’s subtle and understated, favouring brief snippets of dialogue between a pair of marines or a brief set piece of a scientist being dragged into an air duct over lengthy cutscenes of exploding helicopters. It gives an air of realism contrary to the game’s sci-fi setting and sometimes over-the-top tone, and it’s a real testament to the value of organic exposition that such evocative atmospheres can be created through such subtle methods.

Surprisingly, Half-Life doesn’t let itself be carried by its storytelling. The narrative is built around solid core gameplay that boasts the tactical complexity of a more modern title on top of the large array of weapons reminiscent of older shooters. As I’ve previously mentioned, the enemy AI is subpar by today’s standards, but it’s really the level design that makes the combat stand out. The environments are varied and engaging in such a way that retains atmospheric consistency while providing some excellent combat scenarios.

Half-Life will always be a classic, and despite some janky behaviour that’s become more evident as its aged, it’s a fantastic shooter—easily one of the best to date.

*Note: At the time of this review, I have yet to play any other games in the Half-Life franchise. This includes all of the DLC for the original Half-Life, which I am currently reviewing.

Overview
Half-Life is a monumental achievement in the world of PC gaming. I say this as a 15 year old male who has just now played it nearly 2 decades after its release, which was back in November 1998. This game is just over 2 years older than me! It is also still perfect in nearly every way, from its base gameplay on up to the expertly crafted story of tense mystery. In this review I will go over the graphics/performance, gameplay, and narrative of Half-Life, along with some closing thoughts.

Graphics/Performance
Look, I'm not going to try to pull anyone’s leg here. By modern standards, Half-Life is not much of a pleasure to look at. Yet still, there is something unique and special about its design that makes it look impressive, even now. I think it’s the tightness and lack of visual hiccups that really pulls the game into the modern age without too much of a fuss. Another likely reason for this are the modern widescreen resolutions it offers, something almost no games were doing back then. In short, the aesthetics are timeless as long as you aren't a total graphics ♥♥♥♥♥. Now on with the performance; it's near perfection. I am running on Windows 10 with no PC components older than 2012, and it runs flawlessly. I don't know what it is about the Goldsource engine (and newer Source engine for that matter) but everything runs without nearly a single discrepancy. I think I ran into 2 frame drops the entire 10-12 hours Half-Life spans, and one bug, which was how easily you could get stuck on the games environments. Very slight grievances, I know. All in all, Half-Life is utterly unfailing both graphically and performance wise.

Gameplay
This is where the real meat of Half-Life is. The action is visceral, the mechanics are flawless, and it all comes together into a challenging and highly varied orchestra of gameplay splendor. I really can't stress enough how amazing the gameplay is. The combat is fast paced and packed with copious amounts of weapons for you to use against your foes, whether they are the multitudes of Xen monsters, or Gordon's many confrontations with military force. There is also some platforming and simple puzzling to do, which are all executed perfectly. My only qualms with Half-Life on the gameplay side are the somewhat basic goals the game will often give you, and also its level layout on rare occasion. You are constantly tasked with pulling levers, pushing buttons, and turning wheels in order to progress or overcome larger enemies in Half-Life. It wouldn't be too much of a problem if these tactics weren't used to defeat nearly every boss in the game, but I digress. Some explanation for my complaints on the level design; it is normally great, but does get a bit nonsensical at times. It may just be my lack of knowledge on the layout of games in the late 90's/early 2000's, but I got lost every now and then and would then have to use a guide to solve this issue. It wasn't common, but it was a nuisance when it occurred. All this considered, when you look at the big picture, Half-Life's gameplay wraps up into one tight and astounding experience that was far ahead of its time, with only a few moments of tedium or confusion.

Narrative
As far as storytelling goes, Half-Life is a total enigma. It's really hard to pin very much down when you get deep into the game, but I'll give a quick, spoiler free analysis. To sum up, you are Gordon Freeman, a scientist with a degree in theoretical physics working at the Black Mesa science facility. Quickly after starting the game you will find yourself in a test chamber running an experiment with your colleagues, when everything swiftly goes horribly wrong, resulting in countless deaths and an ongoing Xen/government fiasco you will have to endure in order to survive. Skip a little bit ahead to avoid spoilers, and you will eventually find yourself in the middle of a plot of mystery, in which very few questions are ever answered. Half-Life ends on a cliff hanger, and then it's on to Half-Life 2, or the DLC's to see if any of these questions are answered there. That's where I'm going now, but first I'll type up some final thoughts for this review.

Final Thoughts
Half-Life is a classic FPS that has undoubtedly influenced almost every title in the genre that has come after it. Despite some rough edges to keep in mind, I can easily recommend Half-Life to every single fan of the FPS genre. And no, "its old" is not a valid reason to avoid this game. It's older than I am and I still loved it.

One of the best games in the entire history of gaming.
I grew up playing this game, along with its mod CS 1.6, but that doesn't matter.

If you're wondering whether you should buy it because it's old, don't even pay attention to when it was released, all that matters is it has great gameplay, great story and many cool weapons to use.

There are also many mods you can download once you're finished with the main story, many of the mods are really interesting and fun to play.

The one, the only, the classic Half-Life. Somewhat replaced by its remaster Black Mesa, Half-Life offers the fluid shooter experience that we expect from a Valve game set in the interesting world of... Half-Life World?

That means aliens teleporting out of no where, scientisits and military charging about the facility, and you, Gordon McCrowbar, going from A to B in the most difficult way possible.

Expect classic shooter difficulty, headcrabs, running, techno-wizardry, explosions, lizards, platforming, and SCIENCE.
