many of us wait for the sequel to Half-Life (Half-Life2 would
you believe it?), Opposing Forces has been drafted in to fill
the gap of time. While at ECTS we were told that OF is on-time
for its Pre-thanksgiving release date and will certainly be
an addon we can all enjoy.
put things simply, OF is the Half-Life universe, but from a
very different angle. You take on the role of one of the soliders
seen in the original Half-Life and the whole game runs on a
simultanious time-line with the original. This means you may
even glimpse Gordon Freeman as he (once you) tries to escape
to that OF promises new weapons, textures, levels, a story that
rocks bells, monsters and a whole host of additional features
based on user feedback from the original HL.
Half-Life2 arrives you would certainly be wise checking this
out, or even until Team Fortress2 arrives. Remember deep (un-confirmed)
rumour has it that HL2 is due before X-Mas99, yeah sure!
