Black Mesa vs. Half-Life Source Comparison Video

Black Mesa may be out and ready to download, yet you might not realize how big these graphical changes really are. Black Mesa, for the uninformed, is a ground-up reconstruction of Half-Life with redone levels, enemies, weapons, voice-acting, coding, and an added helping of co-op. It’s also gorgeous. That’s why the rogue physicists on Game Front’s Youtube Channel put together a comparison video, showing us the ugly truth. Half-Life hasn’t aged gracefully, but Black Mesa looks pretty amazing.

Get a glimpse of how much Black Mesa has changed with the video below.
