I am generally quite skeptical about expansion pacts, but after the release of the brilliant Half Life add-on Opposing Force, which was both fairly lengthy and packed with superb set pieces, I was willing to take the ride with anything Valve wanted to release as part of their Half Life universe. Blue Shift, probably the least-known Half Life game, is a short but sweet expansion that offers another unique take on the Black Mesa scenario, although it is only going to truly satisfy those who are truly immersed in the HL story. This time, the Black Mesa incident is tackled from the perspective of a lowly security guard, giving you yet ANOTHER look at the strange ... Read the complete review

Plenty of people have slagged off Half-Life:Blue Shift,calling it a commercial rip-off and cash-in. These people might be right, the RRP£ is a bit high when you find out how short this add-on really is, but I find it enjoyable and interesting. I also bought it second hand for £8 so I didn't feel "ripped-off". Blue Shift was originally an extra level for the PC->Dreamcast conversion. I bought a Dreamcast to play Half-Life, as I couldn't see myself spending £1000 on a PC. As time passed, the Dreamcast version slipped further into development hell. Eventually, it was canned which is a real shame as gold discs about floating about the development ... Read the complete review

Half Life: Blue Shift is a PC expansion pack for the sci-fi based first-person shooter Half Life, developed in 2001 by Sierra Studios. After the release of the widely-acclaimed Half Life in 1999, two expansion packs were released which both followed parallel storylines to the events of the original game - Opposing Force and Blue Shift. In Half Life, you play as scientist Gordon Freeman who has to escape the Black Mesa Research Facility when it is overrun by aliens who enter through an accidentally opened portal to another dimension. Gordon has to evade the aliens and also a covert team of military operatives who have been sent to eradicate all evidence of the incident, .. Read the complete review

I would not normally have bought Half-Life: Blue Shift so early after it's release, but Electronics Boutique sent me a voucher so what choice did I have but to spend it? I had read a review of the game before I purchased it, and it remarked at how short it was. But the box also promised to update my current version of Half-Life, so I thought it would be worthwhile. It is difficult to get a decent game for £15, and this was also a standalone game, not an update. The game is not a classic in its own right. I did become stuck on some of the early sections, but once I found my way past these it was a fairly straightforward exercise. The entire game ... Read the complete review
