Black Mesa

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Half-Life is a great game, but it's been over ten years since its release. What if Half-Life were made in 2007 instead of 1999? Black Mesa is a re-imaging of Half-Life using Source, the engine powering Half-Life 2 . Valve has already created an HD remake of Half-Life called Half-Life Source, but that was a simple port over to the new engine. The textures, level design, and models remained the same. Black Mesa is more than a simple remake of the original game.

Review: Black Mesa (PC)

Gamer 2.0
27 October 2012
  • Conclusion: First of all, you only need to determine this game’s worth in reference to your own time. The game is free to download, but you’ll need to also download Steam’s Source SDK Base 2007 , which is also free. Whether you’re a longtime fan of the series or are jumping into it new, Half-Life is a game that altered the future of first-person shooters and should be on every gamer’s list of “Games you must play before you die.

Black Mesa Review | Workplace Reunion

Dealspwn
19 September 2012
  • Conclusion: The Short Version: By combining a fine eye for detail, ttowering love for the source material, and a commendably dispassionate eye for some subtle editing, the Black Mesa dev team have created one of the freshest FPS titles in months by dragging one of the best games of all time into 2012 and, dare we it, improving it. Only an idiot would miss out on this.
  • Pros: Fantastically detailed and splendidly faithful, Completely free, Removes some of the more annoying platform elements
  • Cons: Fantastically detailed and splendidly faithful, Completely free, Removes some of the more annoying platform elements, Though there's still a bit too much, Ugh...crouch jumping, Slightly incomplete

Black Mesa review: Half-Life still packs a punch in 2012 (with help from some modders)

CVG
17 September 2012
  • Summary: It's testament to the quality of Black Mesa, a free Half-Life 2 mod , that we're able to review it like a normal game. This isn't just Half-Life with a texture upgrade; it's a lovingly crafted remix that remains faithful to the source material, but also makes its own mark on Valve's breakthrough FPS. As well as a stunning visual overhaul, the AI is smarter, maps are bigger, and new physics puzzles have been added to take advantage of the Source engine.
  • Pros: High production values, Faithful to the original, Free to download
  • Cons: Too much platforming, Some weak voice acting, Crouch jumping

Análisis de Black Mesa y regreso a Half Life

es.ign.com
2 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: Revisitar los clásicos parece algo tan literario que no me gusta cómo suena. ¡Tratamos con juegos! Pero, con Black Mesa , da gusto volver a sentir el Half Life original. Sí, es el mismo juego de siempre. Pero comparado con otras adaptaciones del pasado, sale bien parado. Encima, es la excusa perfecta para volver a disfrutarlo o, sencillamente, descubrir por qué somos tantos los fans de Gordon Freeman .

Black Mesa soddisfa le aspettative?

2 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: Il giovane ricercatore Gordon Freeman avrà presumibilmente speso anni per laurearsi al MIT. L’ingresso nella sede del suo primo datore di lavoro, posizionata nel torrido sottosuolo del Nuovo Messico e raggiungibile soltanto tramite un lento tram monorotaia, richiede altrettanta pazienza.

Black Mesa. «Не дышите на шедевр»

gamestar.ru
21 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Поистине не знает границ энтузиазм настоящего фаната. Black Mesa , долгожданный ремейк Half-Life, гики из доморощенной Black Mesa Team упорно «ковыряли» восемь лет — жутко нахальный срок даже для разработки монструозной игры по новой интеллектуальной собственности, что уж говорить о всего лишь частичном переосмыслении готового проекта.

  • Excerpt: Когда Valve выпустили первую Half-Life на движке сиквела, многие были разочарованы. А одна известная поговорка гласит: «Если тебе что-то не нравится – исправь это». Ей и последователи люди, подарившие нам Black Mesa Source . Восемь лет кропотливого труда, и мы снова можем окунуться в старые добрые времена. И обнаружить с удивлением, как ремейк, оставаясь верным традициям оригинала, вдохнул в историю новую жизнь.
