SummaryShort, but overall good
The GoodBlue Shift has more story then Half Life, describing and neatly ties up many of the loose pieces left by the original game.
The High Definition package is a welcome sight, updating most models and sounds for weapons and characters to become more detailed and realistic.
The level design is quite good as well.
The BadToo short. A normal gamer can complete it in no more then 4-6 hours.
The Bottom LineWell....
My final judgment is that any Half Life fan which would like to know more about the background for Black Mesa, the alternate universe, and the (wormholes?) transporters, should get Blue Shift. Tough I advice playing the original Half Life first, to get the most out of it.
