Graphics look dated, is that the same engine?

It's the original Half Life in the Half Life 2 engine with crisp HD textures, awesome animation and new music, etc.

It's fucking awesome, because the original HL looks like shit.

Source engine still looks fine.

Its all about the game play, dated graphics or not. I will wait for game reviews to come out on them before i slap down any cash.

Borderlands 2 has my eye right now.

So instead of getting Half Life 2, Episode 3 ready, these bastards went Darth Lucas on us and decided to pretty up their original product.

That's fantastic. Now GIVE ME NEW CONTENT TO PLAY!!1

I'm very picky....I don't like most games....but this one rocks.
Borderlands 2 comes out next week so that comes first for me....but I will be playing this.

HL was revolutionary in 1998. In 2012, it's just going to be another shooter on a dated engine.

I'm not a hater either. HL is #1 on my GGOAT list.

Source is a dated engine? I'll be the first to admit I am not fully up to date on recent game engines but how is Source dated?

Not trying to be a dick here, asking as serious question.

Have you seen Frostbite 2.0 in action? What about CryENGINE 3? Source is a 9 year old engine. How many video card generations was the year 2003 ago?

I have not seen either of those so I defer to your judgement. But I think this game is based on the 2007 version of Source.

So I was finally able to download and install Black Mesa and have started playing.

First impressions; love it so far. To be fair I am a Half Life / Valve fanboy at heart. But the graphics are good, the atmosphere is a vast improvement from the original.

Only gotten half way through Blast Pit but so far this has not been a disappointment.

Right. Fucking. Now.

I was 17 years old when it came out and it frustrated me and blew my mind at the same time.

I finished it last night. It was really good for a free game. It was really polished. I didn't run across any glitches or bugs. It was very faithful to the original in terms of difficulty, map design, and even monster placement. Oh, and it looks amazing.

It was very disappointing to jump into that lambda portal and only see "to be continued. "

Yeah that was what I was getting at, when it happened I started thinking "Did I do something wrong?".

Loved the game, a few items that could have been refined a bit more, but overall a great mod / remake of the original game.
