We’re back in the Black Mesa compound yet again for the second "official" expansion for 1998’s groundbreaking first-person shooter "Half-Life." Take the role of security guard Barney Calhoun who, like Gordon Freeman, is given the task of wiping out every nasty extraterrestrial or misled soldier who crosses his path. (Also includes the first HL expansion pack "Opposing Force.")

Bottom Line is, although it is flawed this game still kicks major ass with steel tipped boot.90GameZone
Put it this way – if this is your first go of a Half Life game, prepare to be shocked by the AI of these
Just know that you’re in for a short ride that will leave you yearning for a full-fledged sequel.80Happy Puppy
The Music that runs off the Blue-Shift CD. It kicks in at the worst times, and resembles circus music.80CPUGamer
Playing as barney is really fun and gives his character a lot of flair and a status similar to Gordons in HL290mawwex
Hello, this is a default review because i’m forced to use 75 characters. I’ll edit this review in the future talking about the game, don’t worry 😉 My final rate is: 880DonldTrump_45Th
a bit short, you will not need more than 4 hours. But the idea of playing a security guard was great.90gracjanski
A bit of a letdown in comparison to Opposing Force but still a great addition to the Half-Life universe.80petrkozak13
gotta be onest its very good but you shold just buy half life 1 or opposing force because this is basicly just a map pack80somerandomguyhx

Negative Comment(s)

Too short to justify its current MSRP.75FiringSquad
The thing that ultimately forces me to give it a low rating is how damnably short it is – the game ending just as you are starting to get involved in the plot.74Game Over Online
Without a more engaging gameplay style or any innovation (aside from the High Definition pack), I don’t see Blue Shift as being a strong expansion.72Gamezilla!
Beyond the HD pack, nothing has been done to evolve the game as a whole.70Electric Playground
A lot of fun, but it was just over too quick. It’s certainly worth taking a look at if you’re a fan of Half-Life, but you better keep your eyes open, because if you blink you may miss it.70IGN
Short but sweet.70GamerWeb PC
If you don’t own “Opposing Force,” get it. If you do, then don’t expect a repeat performance.70GameSpy
As it stands, it’s almost in the realm of the type of content you expect to freely download.60Yahoo!
Stevie Wonder could breeze through this first-person shooter in under five hours.60Maxim Online
Essentially a graphics enhancement pack bundled with a short single-player campaign and a title many have already played, all for around 20 dollars after rebate.50Adrenaline Vault
