After years of hearing people praise this game series, I finally decided to play it myself after witnessing Valve bring life back into it with the release of Half-Life: Alyx. Before, I had never really touched on the series with only about an hour of playtime on Half-Life 2; however, I had experienced some of Valve’s other game series such as Portal and Left 4 Dead. Since I figured trying out Half-Life would not hurt, I purchased the game a while back for only $1 in an amazing deal but never ended up getting around to playing it after assuming it was too outdated to be playable, which turned out to be a terrible assumption.

Half-Life (1998), which was Valve’s first-ever game, is a first-person shooter where you play as Black Mesa scientist, Gordon Freeman. After an experiment goes wrong, which results in an alien invasion, you find yourself escaping the research facility with various encounters with the military and invading aliens. Half-Life went on to become regarded as one of the most influential games to the first-person shooter genre, as well as one of the best games of all time. This can likely be attributed to its strong storyline and revolutionary gameplay led by non-linear level design. This design allowed players to explore the highly detailed and immersive environments (at the time) of the Black Mesa Research Facility while searching for health packs and ammo to prepare for future fights. However, the level design became somewhat outdated when the player traveled to the borderworld, Xen, where navigation became confusing due to the graphics and overall design of the environment.

After completing my first playthrough of it on hard mode, I noted a few problems that have obviously arisen due to the age of the game. First, the graphics are clearly outdated. The progression through the game could be stalled because of the antiquated details. For example, in one area it took me five to ten minutes to figure out where to go next because the opening to the next area perfectly blended in with the surrounding walls. In addition, the puzzles sprinkled throughout the game seemed a little old, but generally, they could be easily solved with careful thinking and planning. Amazingly, the story holds up incredibly well, which shows why this game is such a classic. Also, its engaging combat keeps the player on the edge of their seat as they fight several types of enemies with different ways to defeat each one using a wide range of weapons. Overall, the storyline and gameplay itself make up for its rough edges and hopefully, it does not discourage anyone from trying the game out like it almost did for me.

Now, for those who do have a problem with the game being old, there is a recently released remake of the game aptly named Black Mesa, created by dedicated fans known as the Crowbar Collective. I have not yet had the opportunity to try out this remake, but it looks absolutely astounding and I heard they even altered some of the weaker parts of the game to make it more modern.

In conclusion, I believe everyone should at least try Half-Life, whether it be the original 1998 version or the remake, as it was truly a big step for the first-person shooter genre and the gaming industry as a whole.

[h1] Not half-bad [/h1]
Half-Life 2 is one of those games that everyone has at least heard of, perhaps only as a part of the meme, nonetheless the points stands. What about the first Half-Life game then? It would stand to reason that such a creature existed, so there could be a sequel to it, yet it has been overshadowed by its successor to the point at which the first game became almost obscure. Frankly, it’s a shame because back in the 1998, when Half-Life was released, it had almost single-handedly shown the world that FPS genre can have a story to tell. The notion is almost absurd nowadays but back when the genre was synonymous with Doom and Quake, FPS stood for raw gameplay and a text panel at the end to sum up your exploits. Using it as a fundament for presenting a complete narrative which on top of that was integrated into the gameplay seemed almost daring. Coupled with innovations in graphics and AI, it had created a formula that many games strode towards in years to come. Today, the graphics are obviously dated and the level design is confusing but otherwise the game still holds up surprisingly well.

It came from outer reality
Half-Life tells a story of Gordon Freeman, a prospering physicist working at Black Mesa – a top-secret research facility capable of using sci-fi literature as schematics for their next project. The player takes control of the mute protagonist and soon steps into the iconic Hazardous EnVironment suit (abbreviated HEV) to join fellow scientists for work on the faithful day. The day when a single experiment gone horribly wrong made a tear in reality sizable enough to allow for an alien invasion. Alas, the quest begins amidst chaos and alien life forms rampaging through the facility. Most of you are well aware what that struggle had ultimately lead up to. Until then, Freeman’s chosen field of expertise had just become the ballistics and there will be dozens of test subjects just dying to further your research.

The extraterrestrial menace that player is about to face comes in many shapes and sizes, all equally deadly. Even the cat-sized headcrab is capable of turning their unfortunate victim into a zombified monstrosity. Much larger, acid-spewing bullsquid or water-faring ichthyosaur aren’t any more docile. Then there are deliberate invaders of Earth, the Vortigaunts capable of conjuring a lightning and their massive armoured counterparts, harassing the player with literal swarms of hornets. Then there are far more mundane enemies. Black Mesa survivors soon realise that the military relief force has arrived with orders to purge all life from the facility, alien or otherwise. This not only makes for a wide selection of enemies but also leads to encounters, where the player enters the middle of a fight between the two enemy factions, allowing for all kinds of tactical play.

Crowbars per second
Half-life’s wide selection of enemies is matched by equally diverse arsenal at the player’s disposal. Chief among them – Gordon’s trademark crowbar. This rather exotic choice for “mandatory weak melee weapon”, as the nickname implies is only useful in early stages of the game. That said, it’s far more practical than most melee weapons in FPS games. Freeman is simply ludicrously agile with it, being fully capable of bashing with the thing 2 times per second – according to the HL wikia. The noise it makes while doing so just adds in on the absurdity, making whacking stuff with crowbar a go-to downtime activity between fights. Jokes aside, HL means of murder do start off easy with, FPS standard-issue buckshot and bullets but then just keep on adding. Soon there is a scoped crossbow, trip-mines, lasers and entirely unique armaments – Gluon gun, which produces a blue beam that vaporizes targets after short period of contact or Hivehand, an organic artifice capable of firing infinite swarm of hornets. It’s not called sci-fi for nothing. If that wasn’t enough, many weapons have some form of secondary fire mode for a good measure.

Physicists on ice
Despite the game’s multiple strengths Half-Life is not all milk and honey. Title’s most glaring flaw is confusing level design. Half-Life is a mostly linear game, though it does allow a degree of exploration. That being said, perhaps “enforces” would be a more applicable word, as time and time again I was simply lost. Now, I would like to emphasise that I am not trying to criticise the game for not being linear. The issue is more complex and perhaps an example will picture it best. If you come across the door there are 3 options: it’s an obvious way forward, it’s a shortcut and the door opens from the other side or it’s a prop with no function at all. Except there is no text pan to tell these apart. Instead the game provides an immersive sensation of wandering around aimlessly. From this, parallels can be drawn to entire sections of the game – at times you can side-track to find extra supplies, and the other time you are supposed to side track, in order to turn a valve that clears an obstacle from the main road. The gnawing uncertainty soon sets in, since you could’ve missed an interactive key element at any point by simply not stepping off the beaten path.

Then there are smaller things, such as Gordon being permanently on skates. The movement in HL is mind-bogglingly fast, to the point where the character keeps some of the momentum even after the player takes their hands off the keyboard, creating a “sliding” effect. While such rapid movement is very useful in combat, the game also has arcade-like platformer sections, where sliding is no longer welcome. Finally, there is a matter of bugs. Admittedly, whether they appear or not is a game of chance but Half-Life can get wonky when played on modern hardware. And I definitely lost that game. Every Ichthyosaur was going through a roid-rage, moving at double the usual speed and clipping through the environment – to the point when during the final battle it “jumped” out of the water and got stuck on the jumping pad. During the fight with Gonarch, the boss couldn’t be asked to transition to the last arena so I could end the fight. I had to literally breach the floor myself by stacking the explosives. Those are just the “highlights” of my HL run but the bugs truly inflated the feeling of confusion. There was no way of telling if it was me doing something wrong or the game.

All in all, Half-life has to be taken with a grain of salt. It was a fun ride and when the game worked as intended, it has done so really well. The title is extremely playable for its venerable age. Half-Life may be at its core a simple story about the otherworldly invaders but it created a framework that allowed to implement all of the best qualities that FPS genre had to offer and more. Diverse cast of enemies, wide variety of weapons, visually distinct environments, all falling into one coherent whole. Valve even went a step further and had given many elements of the game’s convention a logical explanation from in-universe perspective. The enemies spawn out of nowhere – because of the resonance cascade. The supplies are lying around – because Black Mesa fulfilled military contracts and required armed personnel to man expeditions into another universe. The devil is in the details and Half-Life sure has those covered. The expedition to Xen makes for a tremendous final act and even the aged, edgy look does not make a dent in how strange and utterly alien it appears. I highly recommend the game to anyone who enjoys the FPS genre. Half-Life is as forthcoming as a 20-year old game can possibly be and if you can’t stomach the game being a little rough around the edges, there is a Source port or modern reimaging in the form Black Mesa as perfect alternatives.

This is without a doubt one of the best games of the 90s.
I am writing this a few minutes after beating the game.
Even if i didn't have loyalty to valve, i would consider this a masterpiece.
The AI are surprisingly smart, and the level design is great. The puzzles are challenging yet not frustratingly un-obvious like some other games i have played.
The beginning levels are a bit claustrophobic but the later levels open up.
The ending left me very satisfied.

9/10.
Still amazing, even today.

Wow. As an individual who never experienced the Half-Life franchise in the younger age, I must say I am impressed of what was created back then. The game is extremely long, took me roughly 12-14 hours to fully finish the game at the hardest difficulty. I never used guides so finding everything myself might have increased the time it took a bit. Graphics are of course not the best, but the game was made a long while ago, so no hard thoughts on that. As far as the story and the interactive gameplay was, I am also impressed over how many details the game had. The military troops acted to my surprise very tactical. They threw grenades accordingly (seemed to always hit no matter what lol, quite annoying tbf) to where i stood and they would use commands to let the other troops they had heard/seen something. The story was very interesting, and I loved how suspicious Gman appeared in this game.

To summarize, I really regret not playing Half-Life as a kid. Despite this probably giving me nightmares back then, it would generate lots of nice memories. Well, you can't always experience everything when you want to, at least i played it now and it was extremely fun.

Rating:
10/10 story-wise
7/10 gameplay-wise
6/10 graphics-wise (yeah its old but still you have to load every new little area you walk into which is like having enourmous stutters all the time)

This game came out in the late 90's, but i plays like a 2000's game. The graphics, while dated, still carry that feeling of emersion. The story is simple enough and the combat is simple enough, shoot aliens and the occasianial human. The one flaw (in my opinion) is the game has some difficulty spikes that are kind of annoying to get pass, but just quick save frequently and take your time and you can do it. 7.5/10

The game has a old school charm with a large dedicated following. You may either love it or not. Graphics are not high tech but comfortable. The game speed is adequate for average players who do not wish to lose their focus on the fun. I have been playing this game since around 1999.

What Half-Life did that made it so legendary was basically take new (already existing, but not well known or implemented) ideas, concepts and tech and mix them together in a perfectly executed performance. Every key component of HL1 had already been introduced in other games before, such as System Shock, but it was Half-Life that brought them together and showed the world their true potential.

I’m not sure how much I have left to say about Half-Life.

I write a Half-Life comic, see – a mightily expensive bit of fan-fiction (if this opens me up to charges of bias, I apologise; hopefully the game’s reputation can supersede them). So professionally it’s taken up a lot of my imaginative space for the past five years, a period of time in which, for most other people, Half-Life was more or less dead. Almost everything I’ve had to say has been poured into that comic and there’s still a few years left on it. Perhaps even another five. I’m conscious of wearing myself out.

At the same time, it’s important to stay rooted in Half-Life so I don’t risk straying too far from the franchise that kick-started the whole endeavour.

And so roughly every couple of years I revisit the series to check in with the characters and world. It runs the risk of tedium, but luckily for me Half-Life is still as playable and entertaining as ever.

[h1]DOCTOR FREEMAN THE PRUH-FESH-UH-NL[/h1]

A watershed moment for the first-person shooter, Half-Life would instil in Valve the belief that in order for the series to go forward, it would consistently need to reach the heights of the game that started it all. A tall order, but one they have proven time and again they’re capable of meeting.

Revisiting it last week, I was reminded of how I experienced Half-Life as a 10-year-old (11?) kid. I was so enthralled with the prospect of being hapless theoretical physicist Gordon Freeman that I’d effectively role-play specific sequences. It was a way of corralling the narrative to fit my desires – a testament to the relative elasticity of Valve’s design, the potency of the game’s immersive setting, and, clearly, an early warning sign as to my latent obsessive tendencies.

When the tram came to a stop outside the Anomalous Materials lab where Freeman works, I’d keep shift pressed down from the moment the door opened to the eventual test chamber disaster. I knew Freeman was late, but I didn’t imagine him running through the steel corridors like a madman; I wanted him to be a professional. (Now I crouch-jump through the lab and hop on tables when characters are speaking, studiously turning my back on them.)

And when a certain crucial decision had to be made, I’d walk Doctor Freeman to the end of the tram to gaze into the colourless void in mock contemplation. (Now I make my choice the moment it’s available for me to do so, checking off another completed playthrough.)

I had more time, then. Now I’ve got other, more adult things to be getting on with.

Like writing comic-books based on video-games.

[h1]LEGACY[/h1]

Valve’s achievement was, and remains, monumental. With its tale of science-gone-awry unleashing interdimensional chaos on a top secret facility, there was nothing unique in and of itself about Half-Life's story. But in terms of the way that story was told, in immersing players in its smartly realised setting and placing them at the heart of the unfolding drama, they created something unforgettable.

Its story was a simple one, but it changed the way developers approached how they thought about storytelling – especially in the domain of the first-person shooter.

It changed the way I thought about them, too.

The moment you push the crystal into the beam and split the world, I get chills. As arcs of green energy lash angrily across the chamber and glittering particles of light materialise above, drawn to the crystal like a moth to the flame, I am reminded of what it was like to experience Half-Life for the very first time. And in doing so, I am reminded of how what came next shaped who I am today.

I didn’t know it when I was a kid, but Gordon Freeman’s mishap would resonate far beyond Black Mesa, rippling through time and space and giving birth to a cast of characters I’ve been proud to spend a good chunk of my adult life with.

It’s impossible to experience Half-Life without them. I’m grateful for that.

And here I am now, nearly 800 words in, having only planned to write a short piece about how Half-Life still holds up today. But you’ve read enough about that. You already know that. The Resonance Cascade left a sizeable dent, impossible to ignore, secure in its legacy – an inflection point, from Freeman’s dim prospects as a theoretical physicist to the very shape of the first-person shooter. And to my professional life as a writer.

Twenty years later, and apparently I still have plenty to say about bloody Half-Life. I don't know whether or not I should be embarrassed about that, but at least the 11-year-old (10?) me would've been happy.

In a way, I'm still pressing down shift.

So I bought a Valve pack a long time ago that came with counter strike AND left 4 dead 1 & 2 a while back, it also came with all the half life games which I didn't care for. Then just this past week I decided to give half life a real chance and started playing the first title.

I AM SHOCKED that this game came out in 1998, this game has so much depth, lore, and I can see why it has such a huge following. I imagine this game was a leading force in gaming in general, I can't even think of a game that would've been this good out in 1998, amazing amazing amazing. I'll be playing the rest now.

so, I've finally finished it, I wasn't sure if i am ever going to play it but thank god i did, this masterpiece from the year i was born in struck me with it's cool ideas and creative situations placement, see, the gameplay is fun but isn’t that sharp the mechanics are some kind wacky but this is a good thing because it forces you to think out of the box, sometimes literally, valve wasn’t always the masters of game-play but rather the master of the game, it feels like there is a hidden directory to guide the situation you face in the game so it is always a blast to find the solution by yourself, they don’t tell they show, and this is a key factor for immersion.

in the end i highly recommend this game because of the story and the creativity that represents valve to its bone.

Hello everyone!!!Welcome to my game review.
This game is the 1998 game, but it is way ahead of its game time.Don't take it lightly for the 1998 game.Because its game has a good story,good chracter and weapons.The story of the game is already incredibly good.Doesn't have a monotonous gameplay.It doesn't have extremely good graphics, but it has an artificial intelligence that puts a stone in today's games.Weapons incredibly diverse by year.It never bores.
Graphics:8/10
Gameplay:9,5/10
Story:10/10
Characters design:9,75/10
If you haven't played this game you must forget all the games

[h1] Half Life [/h1]

Half Life is a very nice game. It's old and good. The story is still very exciting and the mechanics are still good. The role you play as Gordon Freeman is just wonderful. Even the multiplayer is still played by people. This game has definitely made history and is iconic.

Pra uma pessoa que começou a gostar de jogos focados em narrativa lá por 2010, foi bem surpreendente ver como um jogo de 1998 tem uma história tão criativa como Half -Life. É claro que, ao jogá-lo em 2021, senti que HL1 envelheceu mal e que suas mecânicas de gameplay estão bem obsoletas (talvez minha opinião nesse aspecto seja minoritária), mas, mesmo que esse aspecto tenha me incomodado por diversos momentos, a história de Half-Life me fisgou o suficiente pra receber uma nota positiva. 6,5/10.

If you wanna know how good this game is, I'll tell. This man played 2 hours of a russian version of this game when he was 6 years old, did not understand anything (neither in russian or english). The experience stuck with him for 9 years. Then, as a teen he decided to play this game again and got the experience of his life, and much more. In summary, if you want a good game this is A good game (expect a few anoying glitches in the later half, like the gonarch fight but there's a high chance you won't experience them)

Half-Life is certainly a great game and playing through it over twenty years after it’s initial release only strengthens that for me. That being said it is far from perfect. It’s story; characters; world building and presentation are ground breaking and still worthy of praise. It was a pioneer in not having any cut scenes and keeping you in Gordon Freeman’s shoes. It also managed a great feat in that it Valve chose to communicate the story through side characters you encounter and through announcements. Having Freeman be a mute could have been a terrible choice but they pulled it off. The presentation of the game was fantastic. In that I mean things like the intro train ride setting up the facility and little things such as Gordon’s locker giving him some backstory. The characters of Barney; G-Man; and the scientists all cemented their place in gaming history. There was a good selection of weapons that had many good and memorable choices. The difficulty curve of the game felt a bit off though with some sections feeling extremely easy and others feeling almost sadistic. The enemies were varied and all had little differences that made them unique as well as have slightly different strategies for. The graphics were good for the time. I wouldn’t say they were the best of 1998 but certainly top 5. The reload sounds and animations of the guns were varied and gave them extra character. I will now get to something that brought the game down for me from possible all time great to just great: the physics. Half-Life has by far some of the worst physics I have ever seen and to top it off it is compounded by having brutal levels of fall damage. The worst part of the physics for me was interacting with ladders. Going up or down would be an exercise in patience as it was all to easy for the game to think I wanted Gordon to leap off of it. Other times I would climb up the ladder and it may shoot me up in the air a bit having me lose half of my life in fall damage when I hit the ground. The fall damage and poor physics made some of the platforming very frustrating as well. Some of the issue was timing the jumps while others were seeming to slide a bit after landing. I had these issues years ago when I first played the game and they’re still there now. There are health kits scattered about as well as medical stations scattered as well. You can’t carry any med kits with you though.

I played Half-Life on Linux. It never crashed on me. The game ran great which given the age wasn’t a surprise. There was an option for V-Sync but not any graphics options. The game seemed to be locked to 101 FPS regardless of if V-Sync was turned on. I will say that voices felt a bit muffled or with an echo at times. I also had one time where I went through a platform and got stuck making me have to reload my previous save. There were also textures that appeared black and others that would flicker. I could manually save whenever I wanted and there seemed to be no limit on number of saves. You can also just let the game auto save if you want to. You can’t change the difficulty after starting the game.

Graphics Engine: GoldSrc
Graphics API: OpenGL
Disk Space Used: 529 MB
Save System: Manual and Auto
Health System: Med Kits/Stations
Input Used: Keyboard + Mouse

Settings Used: V-Sync on; 1920x1080
GPU Usage: 3-13 %
VRAM Usage: 534-717 MB
CPU Usage: 14-17 %
RAM Usage: 2.2-2.8 GB
Frame Rate: 92-101 FPS

If you haven’t played Half-Life yet you really should. Physics issues aside it is a great game that has stood the test of time. I finished the game on medium difficulty in 9 hours and 30 minutes. I beat it on hard years ago and knew that with it’s difficulty curve spikes I didn’t want to do that again. I got the game for free years ago from a friend, and also got it through the Orange Box I bought for $49.99 CAD. It is easily worth it’s current price of $11.49 CAD.

My Score: 8.5/10

OK, Half Life is from 1998, so it's pretty old - I'll try to keep that in mind when writing this review.

It's not brilliant, I'll be honest. The sound design is the same loop and when other sounds are playing,it becomes a horrible cacophony of noise. If you like tinnitus - this is perfect for you.

The graphics are old, yet very good even today. They really do set the mood of the whole game. The enemy design is also brilliant, every enemy is very different from the other and so you always have to learn how to counter every new enemy.

In combat, things fall apart. You are always the weaker enemy, which is partly the point, and bullets are scarce so really count if you don't want to take loads of damage. Combat is, however, the dominant feature, and you have to fight endless enemies that you have already met. It becomes almost a chore towards the end of the game, and it spoiled the experience for me.

Half Life is a long game. It took me about 15 hours to beat the game on my first playthrough (on normal difficulty). At times there were long parts (one up to 2 hours) that felt like fillers and that didn't need to be there. There were puzzles that gave you no help to solve so you're stuck trying to solve the puzzle until you randomly get to the answer.

It's not the best game ever, it's old and I got really motion sick at times. The thing that made this game enjoyable for me is the moments that aren't bad. If you stick with the game, there's so much it does right and these moments really make the game enjoyable and massively outweigh the negatives in Half Life.

Overall, I'd probably give this game a 5/10 - not the best, but not by far the worst I've ever played either.

Timeless classic. A true titan of the industry. One that forever changed gaming as a whole. Sure, the graphics, sound and AI are dated, but the writing, set pieces, pacing and the way each level flows seamlessly into the next still hold up 22 years later. Half-Life has 18 chapters and by the end of it, you will remember each one just by reading the chapter name because something memorable happens in each one.

6.1 hrs on record. Don't trust that, its clearly wrong haha.

Half-life is what started it for me. Yeah, sure, I could say Doom is what started PC gaming for me (and of course you can't forget Quake, Wolfenstein, Redneck rampage, etc) but Half-Life is what locked me firmly in place.

I still think of the times back then when I used to wake up at 6am on a Saturday to play some Half-Life and Starcraft and watch Pokemon. That feeling is something that I can't replicate today. Perhaps its nostalgia but that carefree feeling of being a kid and enjoying such an insane game is one of my fondest memories of growing up.

Not only was the single player insane to my ten year old mind back then but the countless mods that spawned because of this game and the fun times I had.. Some that immediately come to mind:

Pirates, Vikings and Knights
Vampire Slayer
Battlegrounds
The Specialists
Brainbread

The list is long and goes on and on. Yeah yeah, don't worry. I didn't forget about CS. That's reserved for it's own review. I still have floppy disks filled with updates, skin packs and bots that I downloaded from csnation. Any of you remember counter-crap? RzE? Rizzuh? Lungfish? The infamous [myg0t] cheating clan that'd you'd occasionally run into? :P

I recently cycled through some of the older games like Deathmatch Classic, Team Fortress and Day of Defeat. I was pleasantly surprised to see people still playing them. It just goes to show you that Half-Life and any of its mods will continue to stand the test of time.

Lord Gaben, I am who I am today because of you. I wish you good health and a long life. Thank you!

Gameplay is good even today, 23 years later.
Is OG Half Life still a masterpiece? Arguably, yes; But it only gets much better from here.
It's hard to imagine a game like this from 1998.
The first to introduce 3D physics, albeit rudimentary; groundbreaking at the time & majorly expanded upon with a quickness.
Superb story.
This game both made and changed history for first person shooters. it changed the formula.

although; Freeman is quite a floaty boy :p

A classic. After trying to beat this game over the years as a kid, I finally decided to come back to it and finish the deed (mostly because I didn't want to start 2 without finishing this). I was not disappointed, this really is a great game and I'd say it's a must-play. I love learning about media that are considered classics, and this is definitely one of them.

I wish I could run it like others :'( but it starts up with very very low resolution (may be 480p or even less!!) and then crash into desktop but this didn't stop me :D bought Black Mesa which is a masterpiece remake of HL. so far enjoying it
