Black Mesa (PC - Steam) 75% Off in the Steam Sale - £3.74

... And with Xen to launch just after the confirmation of Half-Life 3 there is no better time to get on board.

£ 3 .74... Just putting that out there!

Jokes aside yes this has been in some form of early access forever now but it's still a pretty solid experience and with Xen just around the corner (don't hold your breath) it may be worth picking up at this price and waiting because I imagine it'll stick at the £15 mark for a little while after 1.0 eventually drops.

I paid around £7.50 for it with 50% off a while ago and regret nothing.

REVIEWS
“This is Half-Life updated just enough to make it palatable for contemporary tastes, but not so much as to deviate from the original vision.”
YES – Kotaku

“Black Mesa Source winds up being exactly what it always promised to be – a modernised, faithful recreation of a deservedly landmark first-person shooter.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“It's a brilliant tribute to one of the greatest videogames ever made, and it's also a good game in its own right.”
8/10 – Destructoid

Ordered, thanks OP.
Loved it. Looking forward to getting my hands on Xen whenever that is.
We'll definitely get HL3 before Xen here.
My word! Nicolas Cage has really let himself go.

I know! That pic is a prime example for why Internet censorship may not be such a bad thing...
Linux version - heat added
Gutted, I finished half life 2 earlier this year, would have much rather played this updated version
All those years of development for the price of a coffee. Bargain.

This is Half Life 1
Question: is this like a HD fan made remake or should I be playing the original?
I played this so much I started to visualise it as a real base! Same with HalfLife & HalfLife 2, I feel I know my way around those facilities like they are real - even Portal 1 & 2. Awesome games - I reckon they should never make HalfLife 3 - there is just no way it could ever live up to expectations (Duke Nukem anyone?)
Blue shift - still have the original, ah Barney, where are you now? lol
Heat added btw...
what is different to the one free from mesa site?
Nice one...Grabbing

I know this is my deal but if you've got the source version of the original (probably about 69p at the mo) go for that.

This may help make your mind up:

Thank you, I've never actually played HL1...
Enjoyed it, pretty sure this was free when it first come out tho.

HL and Goldeneye 64 were the only games i played in and around 1997-1999, defining FPS games for different reasons.
