Storyline

A mysterious alien artifact has been recovered and brought to a top-secret research facility in the Black Mesa. When newcomer Dr. Gordon Freeman is assigned to physically test the artifact, things go very wrong when the artifact opens a destructive and unstable portal to Xen, a planet in a different dimension. Gordon blacks out, and awakes in a now crippled and ruined research facility. When Freeman and the survivors of this ordeal discover the portal has allowed its inhabitants-deadly alien creatures-to enter the facility, they realize that they must call the government for help. The government, however, already has plans to contain this incident by silencing the witnesses. Written by Kerwin Tsang <kertsang@yahoo.com>

Best Game I've ever played.
25 November 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Half Life is worth any amount of money you spend on a video game. If your looking for something with scaryness, cool graphics and excellent gameplay then Half Life is the game to put your hands on. This is a champion game and you need to get your hands on Half Life immediatley or your life won't be worth living, I really mean that.
