Fantastic Game!

Pros: Super Graphics, innovative games, endless plot twists

Cons: takes forever to complete

The Bottom Line: Bottom line is this is a winner - a little too graphic for the kiddies under 15. A must play for anyone who is interested in games.

I'm not your average computer geek game player. In fact this game was a gift and I thought I'd give it a whirl. Little did I know that months later I am still fascinated with this.

A great game that requires skill and intelligence, not just shooting at things. Very nice concept (nuclear meltdown) and survival.

My only complaint is that it has taken me 2 months and I am no where near finished. My partner is getting mad that I am spending so much time on "that stupid game". And to think, I'm a grown woman with a full time career!

What a great concept and game. Way to go half life!

About this video game

Wiki

Opposing Force returns the player to the Black Mesa facility, but tells the tale from the perspective of Col. Adrian Shephard, one of the soldiers sent to clean up the scientists and their reality-altering mess. Just as in Half-Life, things quickly go badly for Colonel Shephard and his men. Ambushed by aliens, Adrian must fight his way through the ruins of the facility in an attempt to reach a helicopter extraction point. What makes Opposing Force shine is the way it expands on the story of Half-Life . Colonel Shephard passes though areas that players of Half-Life are sure to recognize, and he occasionally runs into characters from the original game, including the infuriating Man in Suit. Opposing Force also introduces several new weapons, such as a sniper rifle (with scope), heavy machine gun, and a .357 Magnum with a laser sight. There's even a "weapon" that is actually a common alien creature from the first game; its unique features allow it to be used as a kind of grappling hook. Seve
