"Blue Shift RULES"

I know some of you people out there this Blue Shift is BS but your so wrong.This game is a lot shorter true and could have more weapons but think about it if you were a Security
guard you would get nothing to defend yourself with anyway except your pistol.Black Mesa never looked better.

Graphics:10/10
Its Half-Life the animation is always good.The blood even makes you sick the first time you play it. The aliens are the best 3-D effects ever on a game.Also people look very real.

Sound/Music:10/10
The sound is great it even warns you if something is around the corner but shut the music off it is just as bad as the other Half-Life CD music.

Gameplay:10/10
I played the other Half-Life games and was kind of thinking how it could be worth $30 when it was only 25 levels. It was suppose to be the sequel to the PS2 version of Half-Life but Sierra didn't release it for PS2 because Half-Life didn't become as popular as it did on the PC. When I first started the game I though I would have other security guards helping me or fellow military personal
like in ''Half-Life'' and ''Half-Life:Opposing Force''. Not this time around its just you and the scientist fighting for survival in Black Mesa.The Weapons and the Characters of
''Half-Life'' ''Half-Life:Opposing Force'' and ''Half-Life:Blue Shift'' get an upgrade when you install the new High Definition Pack you get when you buy ''Blue Shift''.You also see a glimpse at the Half-Life hero as he is sailing by on the tram.

Controls:10/10
Same as before the controls are the best except a glitch in the game which is the flashlight won't turn on or off.Other things that are good about the controls are you can change them to suit your needs.

Replay: Same as the other ''Half-Life'' games you can't play it just once. You can also see so stuff you didn't really look at the first time through. Even the little things are worth seeing a 2nd or 3rd time around.

Buy or Borrow: Buy if your a True die Hard Half-Life fan. Borrow if you don't think its that good.

It will be one of my personal favorites.Every bit of Blue Shift is worthy of the Half-Life legacy.
