  • Era Game Reviews - Half-Life PC Game Review

    2,486 views 5 months ago
    In-depth PC game review of Half-Life, a first-person shooter developed by Valve Software and released in 1998 by Sierra Studios. It was Valve's debut product and the first in the Half-Life series. The game's engine, GoldSrc, is a heavily modified version of the Quake engine licensed from id Software.

    Players assume the role of Dr. Gordon Freeman, who must fight his way out of a secret research facility after an experiment goes horribly wrong, fighting enemies both human and alien, and solving simple puzzles to traverse the hostile environment.

    We look at the expansions by Gearbox Software: Opposing Force and Blue Shift, as well as the PlayStation 2 port. We look at some of its amazing mods created by the Half-Life community. Half-Life is considered to be one of the greatest first-person shooters of all time.

    Era Game Reviews is more than just reviews of older PC games from the 90's. The in-depth reviews not only discuss the basics like the graphics and gameplay, but also looked into the game's history, mods, culture and community.
