Finally! I've been waiting for this for a while, glad they didn't pull the pin on it all together.

My relaxation method involves a bottle of lotion, beautiful women, and partial nudity. Yes I get massages.

Merely calling it an "improved HL1" or "HL1 in Source" is a little bit unfair to the creators of this mod. It's basically a complete re-imagining of the original, which adds a lot of cool little things, and you can see that they really put a lot of work into it all. At the same time, it does stay faithful to the original. Definitely enjoying it thus far.


Downloaded it about eight hours ago, the torrent worked just fine and the entire download took me around 10 minutes. Keep in mind that you must also download the Source Base SDK 2007 through Steam for Black Mesa to work. Assuming you don't have either, it's a 6-7GB download. Feel bad for those who are stuck with shitty internet :(

Been playing this today. Just launched the Rocker.


The game is so good. It has small changes which keep the game fresh, but they seem very faithful to the spirit and feeling of the original. The game also feels so much more real, with must more unique interaction with the other characters, as well as the massively upgraded graphics.


I'm honestly loving the game so far, and I think it's better than many games which cost money.

Is anybody else finding this game MUCH harder than the original? I think with the advanced AI, the army is incredibly tough. I think I've been coddled by modern shooters too much, and i'm getting killed with an alarming frequency. The section shortly before 'Surface Tension' begins, just after all of the test chambers took me so many tries. The enemy flank me constantly and do a fair amount of damage. I'm now at the dam section and don't really seem to have found a solid tactic for killing them yet.
