much shorter than the other expansion, i thought this was a mostly enjoyable game that unfortunately became a slog towards the later end just like the original half life. fortunately the annoying bit didn't last too long, but it really sucked the fun out of the game for me for a time
apart from that though, not bad

Well worth playing for Half-Life fans, and a bit more tame than Opposing Force. I can see why that game is generally more well regarded, but Blue Shift is a tighter experience and still worth playing.
It did feel a bit like a fan game at times, especially given the poor voice acting. A lot of the game is essentially an escort mission, but it isn't as bad as that makes it sound. The ending was pretty good, and I thought the Xen levels were better than the ones in Half-Life.
