5.0 out of 5 stars You would be a fool NOT to buy this! November 15, 1999
By A Customer
Let me cut right to the point: as far as action games go, this is THE game to own. It wouldn't matter if you bought another action game, because they will never compare to this. Unlike most games where they throw you right into the action, Half-Life lets you adjust to a normal, every-day setting for a while, just before bringing it crashing down over your head via a dimensional portal to an alien world. See, you play a normal, bland scientist guy named Gordon Freeman who works at a secret research base miles underground. This place makes the fabeled Area 51 seem like a little shack. Anyway, you show up and work, only your experiment is interrupted when it explodes and opens a gateway to an alien world. Now these aliens aren't really friendly, and start crossing over to our world to tear up some stuff. You race to the surface, where you know help will be and you can get them to help save your friends, right? Big mistake, pal. The help comes in the form of military commandos, on a mission to wipe out this little disaster, and this involves silencing you and your co-workers permenately. So, now what? The artwork is amazing, the story is compelling. Words simply can't deescribe this masterpiece worthy of the title Game of the Year. Plus, for those of you new to action and first-person shooter games, there's even a short but handy training area where you learn how to do the stuff you need to know for this game. Overall, this is the best bet for any computer game fan.

I'll tell you right now that I love action games. I began playing Wolfenstein 3D when I was eight. Ever since, action games has always been my form of entertainment. I discovered Half-Life exactly one year ago when I purchased PC Gamer magazine. At that time, Half-Life was already a few months old. After reading about all the wonderful things about it, I finally purchased it. I installed it immediately, and the second I started playing, I was hooked in its immersiveness. From beginning to end, you will have a gaming experience you never had before. You take the role of a scientist named Gordon Freeman, who is involoved in an experiment that has gone horribly wrong and has opened a portal to an alien dimension. Armed with only a crowbar, you begin your journey out of the Black Mesa Research Facility and to the surface while battling aliens. The story unfolds with numerous plot twists and surprises. The story is so immersive that there will be times when you forget its just a game.
The sound is excellent. With a sound card that supports 3D audio(EAX, A3D 2.0, Direct Sound 3D), the game will become frightengly realistic. The graphics are also very good, using a modifed version of the Quake II engine. The gameplay is superb. The puzzles are smart, the level design is diverse, and the artificial intelligence is nothing short of outstanding. The single player portion is worth the whole price. In fact that's why I got it in the first place. But multiplayer is excellent also, thanks to the Team Fortress Classic mod. If you don't have Half-Life there is no reason to wait any longer. It is about time to find out why Half-Life was awarded Game of the Year by so many publications.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best... November 23, 1999
This package with Half-Life and the Team Fortress Classic mod is really hard to beat. First off, Half Life is the most immersive, fun, and exciting game of all time. Nothing comes close to the tension you feel when your flashlight is low on power, you are low on health and have only 3 shots left in your pistol...and you must make your way through a ventilation shaft populated by those little spider crab creatures. Make sure the system you plan to play this game on more than meets the minimum requirements in order to enjoy the full experience (3d card is almost required). If Half Life wasn't enough then anyone will surely enjoy Team Fortress Classic. I've spent countless hours playing this game over the internet. It contains nine different classes from which the player can choose. Each class has its own plusses/minuses and each map you play on has their own special objective. One map may have you capturing the enemy flag and running back to your base for a score whereas another map may have you protecting 'the president' as you escort him across the map while being targeted by enemy snipers. All in all, TFC makes this product worth getting! This game puts Quake III, Unreal, Sin, Kingpin and all other First Person Shooters to shame. It rightly deserves its 'Game of the Year' award.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than Unreal or Quake 2 November 28, 1999
Half Life is a very stunning game. Everything about it is just awesome. Remember the part in Unreal when you could hear screaming behind a door and you don't know what's going on? Remember how that frightened you? Well, up that one, because this game is more frightening because it's more realistic (because of the wonderful A.I.), and because you don't know what's going on behind the scenes most of the time. All you'll notice is the screaming sounds, or the gore coming out of the vents, or some mysterious guy walking around. Every minute of this game is pure bliss.
One of the most wonderful parts that truly stuck out for me was watching the team of commandos outside trying to flush me out. Some would hide behind boxes, while others would throw gernades into my hiding spot. What's so spectacular about that is the fact that 'their' backup would just bomb the whole place, just to make sure I was dead! That was a truly fightening experience, not knowing where the bombs would land, or where an enemy would hide.
Buy this game, please..
