Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

As part of the HECU, you enter the Black Mesa Research Facility via an armoured personnel carrier.

It leaves you in a large warehouse-style building and your objective is nothing more than to stay alive and kill as many enemies as possible.

Good Luck!

  1. Funny starting (you’ll see why, it’s special but I don’t want to spoil), but I recommend it if you are seaching a worth-time Oppfor map. There are betters. 3/5

    I highly agree with you Ezequielhl, I uninstalled this mod after the third map, I just couldn’t stand the design. But still, I don’t finished it, so don’t take this comment so seriously.

    I know it’s been awhile since anyone has commented on this mappack, but I’m sure one of our mapmakers out there can help me. I get a FATAL ERROR; ModForName: models/detpack.mdl not found. This comes when opfor7 trys to load and crashes to desktop. Tried to load manually, same thing. Opfor8 loads, but without weapons, vest(suit), etc. Can anyone help. Yes, the info mentioned in the ERROR is installed or wouldn,t be able to play this far. Emailed author but unsure if he can help. Other than this problem I’ll say Play It Now.

    This mod is really good. Lots of action, Lots of different enemies, lots of set piece battles. Decent puzzles, not too hard.
    Play on skill 3, there’s lots of health, power weapons and ammo.
    Like a condensed version of Opfor. Great end fight. Can’t see anything wrong with the design (post 4). Didn’t get the problem in post 5. Avoid taking friends onto the next map, you don’t need them. That did make the game crash. One elevator door needs to be approached slowly, otherwise it gets stuck on your foot!
    There may be better mods, but there are many more worse.
    It was slightly tedious moving all the files from the pak into the correct places, as an automatic unpak will overwrite your maps folder, among others.
    Recommended.

    good mod, but a little hard to play on skill 3. First map a bit simple

    I dont like this mod, the amount of ammo and health is very low, You need to be very carefull with your ammo because if you dont, you won’t have anything. There are to much enemy’s and lots of puzzles are buggy, this is not my style of mapping. There are much better mods than this one like Nuclear winter.

    Once in a great while a rookie map author creates a work of such high caliber that it rivals the maps from veteran authors. Opposing Force: A Soldier

    I had a lot of fun with this but the crash 2/3 the way through nearly forced me to stop. I found a way around it and have included a save for you.

    There were some great set scenes and the end scene was pretty well done.

    The beginning is a little sparse and does not reflect the overall quality.

    Definitely worth a play.

      Thank you very much for a file

      • Move the file into your SAVE folder. Then load the mod and then try to load a save. Look for the save you have just added – I can’t remember what it will look like. If you have a lot of saves, go back to the save folder and rename it “SAVE1″ and create a new one called “SAVE”. Put the file in there and when you open the LOAD section in the mod, there should be only one save in there.

        Let me know if you need more help.

    Love how this map revisits areas of Black Mesa after Freeman left. It continues what we saw in Opposing Force in its own non-canon way. Good mapping.

    Well a little bit of shine has come off this one compared to my old Ten Four review above, but overall it’s still a pretty solid set of maps. I did experience two crashes while playing but they were not repeatable, so for some reason it just seems like this pack is a bit unstable but not unplayable.

    The mapping is pretty good but a bit basic and nonsensical in places. Combat is pretty good, although I think the mapper overuses the trick of teleporting in enemies right in your face. It’s fine once in a while but gets old pretty quick in this pack.

    I liked the tension created with the garg, but since you never face him the tension has no payoff and it’s ultimately disappointing.

    For all my complaining about the Blue Shift (and also the HL and Op4) finale battles, this mod gets it right. I really liked the increasing difficulty and intensity of the finale, and even with a squad to help you, it gets pretty dicey. What I like is the arena feel, and without a classic “boss” to fight. It’s hectic and quite fun.

    In general this isn’t a must-play, but as Opposing Force maps go, it’s in my top 5.

    This mod starts off pretty rough, with some quite basic areas, but definitely improves as you progress. Featured are a range of combat situations and environmental hazards. Whilst early on the mod struggles to avoid generic layouts and gameplay, areas got a lot more inventive later on. From escorting security guards to navigating test chambers flooded with hazardous waste, there are plenty of enjoyable sequences.

    On the other hand, I did encounter a lot of severe bugs in addition to the game breaking crash mentioned in the main post. Admittedly some of them may not have been present originally, but they did serve to disrupt the flow of the maps significantly. I also found that there were occasionally some unfair deaths which should have been avoidable the first time. Another unusual issue I found was that many of the later environments were way too dark, so much as to become an obstacle to combat even with night-vision on.

    Despite my whinging, there was a lot of good stuff in this mod and some memorable moments. Of particular interest is the stunning ending which, as Unq mentioned above, proves that a good boss fight is possible in the HL1 era.

    Not one of the best, but for Opposing Force you could do far worse than this Tale.

    Pretty fun to play, but some bad design choices make it challenging at times. Putting a map load point right where you are trying to use the elevator is a really bad idea. There were lots of places where I got “stuck” in the map and either had to noclip back out or reload. Dying unexpectedly because something gives way is pretty annoying. Also, I wonder why you would have rooms with zombies and machinery inside but that are only accessible by breaking the vent? Kind of weird. If you don’t mind the rough spots and are longing to play in the OF world again you might like this

    Well this is a dynamic nice mappack, full of combat action, and some interesting puzzles in the maps, along the 10 we have.
