Half-Life, All Game
Half-Life was a landmark title in the evolution of first-person shooters. Not only were the technical specs ahead of everything else on the market, the developers were able to add a compelling sci-fi story around the game. Stories in FPS games, up until this point, were usually left underdeveloped. “Muscle-bound hero kills everything in a ball of fire” is what we were used to. Half-Life introduced us to Gordon Freeman, the scientist, and scientists are rarely represented well in games as heroes. Gordon became a geek icon. Half-Life eventually spawned numerous mods like Zombie Panic, Counter-Strike, Day of Defeat, and Natural Selection, all free to play so long as you own the original game. The series spawned three official side-stories, Blue Shift, Opposing Forces, and Decay. You're not just buying a game, you're buying into an expanded universe to include Half-Life 2, Lost Coast, Episodes 1
Yes, half-life game!
The story starts in New Mexico, surely known for Area 51 and aliens experiment in the past. Gordon Freeman is an employ of Black Mesa Research Facility, a company involved in obscure (and secret) nuclear experiments. One day some tests goes wrong and a gate to Xen planet opened: it means aliens from this world starts invading earth and it means the start of Half-Life game! This FPS from late `90 it was great at its time, for its tipycal action elements and for some puzzle and combat tasks you will have to perform during the gameplay. The story is not so bad, though aliens started invading the earth since '94 with Doom
, Duke Nukem 3D
and so on. Good graphics with nice 3D, good game, great action from this first Half-Life episode.
