Anyone playing Black Mesa? What are your thoughts?

Playing Black Mesa now.
It looks and sounds incredibly beautiful,
but the gunplay is so weak and bad.
Says a lot, that the gluon-gun is the only one with a really good gun-feel.

But gunplay was never the strong part about HL, wasn't it?

No it wasn't. Gunplay is still just as boring as the original but at least the sound design is better. I wish the Scientists were different from each other. Listening to them banter was fun, but they all look the same. they could've at least tried to make them all look like different individuals, but I guess that would've been too much to ask or it would've been too different.

I played it, but it only reminded me that I never liked Half Life to begin with. Anyone who's a fan of the Original should definitely check it out though.

I played the freeware version right after playing the original, back before the Steam and Xen releases. It was great. Gun feel in the original wasn't mindblowing either, so I don't think there was much difference.

Black Mesa is shit. The Marine AI is so fucking stupid that they'll just stand with cover between you and them and unload their guns into it forever. Even the fucking AI in the original game had better pathfinding than this. Hell, Goldeneye 64 enemies had better pathfinding. Look how they massacred my boys.

It's definitely the prettiest game ever on the Source engine but if you want to play a fun action game, stick with the original Half-Life.

I enjoyed playing through Black Mesa when it first came out. It's a decent remake. Having replayed it recently, I did not enjoy Xen at all. It looked pretty cool but was way too long.
