The revolutionary Half-Life set the standard for subsequent first-person shooters. As each new section or level is reached, the
game pauses to load it, making for massive, seamless environments. Nearly all levels are located in or around the Black Mesa
Research Facility, including subterranean railroads, laboratories, ventilation shafts, cafeterias, missile silos, and eventually the
aliens' home world. The diverse range of enemies includes tank-like warrior spore plants, headcrabs, and possessed scientists,
just to name a few. Horror novelist Marc Laidlaw's storyline tells a chilling tale of government scandal and experiments gone

As if the protagonist of the story, Gordon Freeman, doesn't have enough on his hands with the varying cadre of foes, he's being
hunted by marines and government assassins as well. As Freeman, you need to find weapons to survive. The arsenal includes a
melee wrench, pistol, shotgun, assault rifle, rocket and grenade launcher, and various alien armaments scavenged off dead
soldiers. Unlike many first-person shooters, health and ammunition packs are located in sensible locations. First aid kits are
attached to walls in medical laboratories, while ammunition is logically found in weapon depots or on dead marines. Your
protective suit acts as armor and can be replenished in certain locales.

Half-Life uses a modified version of id Software's Quake engine (combined with about 50 lines of code from the Quake 2 engine),
resulting in realistic levels and locations with fearsome aliens waiting to end your struggle at every turn. While the game is
flawless, the online deathmatch aspect suffered initially from high server latency, later fixed through a series of patches. Winning
over 50 Game of the Year awards and named best game of all time by PC Gamer magazine, Half-Life is an extraordinary
achievement that established the benchmark for future games in the genre.
