Dan Stapleton (IGN)

Black Mesa is the best way to play the classic original 1998 Half-Life today, but it’s a remake that already feels old enough that it would benefit from a remake itself.

March 12, 2020 |

One of the best remakes ever, not because of its loving recreation of the original Half-Life but because it dares to change and improve it.

Andy Kelly (PC Gamer)

A quality remake that broadens the scope of the original and massively improves its final chapters.
