Game description: Deep in the bowels of the Black Mesa Federal Research Facility, a decommissioned missile base, a top-secret experiment goes terribly wrong. As aliens come through the walls and a military death squad shoots everything in sight, young research associate Gordon Freeman must scramble to stay alive. Find your way through the monster-ridden areas of Black Mesa using your wits, limited security clearance, and a variety of weapons, ranging from a crowbar and pistols to a rocket launcher and grenades. With split-screen deathmatch and its exclusive "Decay" single-player and multiplayer cooperative modes, Half-Life is an action experience like no other.
Play as Gordon Freeman, a scientist at Black Mesa, as you try to escape the facility which has been overrun by alien lifeforms.

||The game is having slowdown tendencies on any resolution, despite the speed being at constant ~100%. Mostly acceptable when playing single-player, but co-op (Decay) can start "slide-showing" at what visibly seems to be around 10 FPS during more intense moments. Some minor graphical glitches (mostly lighting) are also present, but otherwise the game is quite playable.|
