Amazing game

This game has never attracted me but I decided to buy it to make an idea of this game.

First of all, the graphics are old now but it isn't a big problem for me. At the beginning of the game I noticed one thing, it looks like Outlast Whistleblower (for the laboratory universe) maybe I am wrong.

The story and the gameplay are really good and the game is still played thanks to the different mods.

This game is the origin of the actual FPS, you should get it, it is a must have.

A revolutionary FPS, a classic that passes the test of time

For a game that came out in 1998, it's still fun today. There are a lot of games from the 90s that are too dated to play today, halflife 1 is not one of those games. Even today, the enemy AI is highly intelligent and better than some games from this decade.

If you want a story, you have to pay attention and look deep into what's going on to get a story. If you don't care about the story, then just plow through & kill your enemies, you won't be bothered with cutscenes and unnecessary dialogue.

A million mods were made from halflife 1 because the engine was so solidly made. That's a testament to how good the gameplay is. It gives you the power fetish, more and more and more guns to kill aliens & enemy soldiers with.

If you haven't played one of the greatest FPS classics of all time, stop doing yourself a disservice and pick up this can't miss great.

The best FPS forever

One of the best games of the FPS style, made long ago and still lives for their mods, thanks to this game others as Counter Strike, Sven co-op, Team Fortress Classic, Ricochet, were made. Its graphics engine was the best for the season and then many remasters were made, the most recent is Black Mesa Source which uses the source engine, designed in half life 2, to make this game has the respect it deserves. With all these data, all I can say, is stop reading this review and Getting Started to play. At least that is my point of view. 10/10

One of the best FPS's there is

vidmizz | April 17, 2014 | See all vidmizz's reviews »

This was one of the first games I have ever played and boy was it a great one.

It has everything, from cockroaches to giant flying alien fetus overlords that you can shoot at. It was created in better times when there were no get this and that DLC to get this weapon or stuff like that so you can do everything you would expect from a FPS game without having to buy DLCs.

There is a great multiplayer mode for this game too where you can engage your friends with rocket launchers and laser backpacks (Ain't that cool?! :O) so if you don't have this game you should consider no longer and get this beauty in a heartbeat.

Must play game

Edreih | April 17, 2014 | See all Edreih's reviews »

This game is one of a kind. Everything about this game is spectacular. The story, the gameplay, and the visuals (given the time frame it was made).

You have a variety of weapons available to you and each one has its pros and cons. Each of the many enemies in the game has a different strategy for you to figure out. So the AI is very well made for its time. There are a variety of environments so you'll never be bored as the story progresses.

I highly recommend everyone to play this game to experience the story. Also because this is one of the most revolutionary games (and FPS) of its time.
