“Ah, Gordon, there you are. We’ve just sent the sample down to the test chamber.The administrator is very concerned that we get a conclusive analysis of today’s sample. I gather they went to some lengths to get it.”…… “Yes, but with good reason. This is a rare opportunity for us. This is the purest sample we’ve seen yet.”

Purest sample? Then what went wrong? How did a pure sample rip a portal between Earth and Xen? Find out in “Sabotage”.

You play the role of a mercenary, specialized in infiltration and sabotage. You learn of the experiments to be held in the Black Mesa Research Facility (BMRF) – under the supervision of the G-man. Seven years earlier, the G-man had you sent to a high-security prison for a crime you never committed. Back then, you were a high profile elite warrior highly respected for your skills. But your reputation was tarnished for life by the G-man, now an administrator in the Black Mesa Research facility. Now, seven years later, you will finally have your revenge.

Using your contacts, you learn about the experiments that are going to be conducted in Black Mesa by a certain Dr. Freeman. He will supposedly use a pure Xen sample crystal. You also find out about a delivery truck that delivers regular supplies to the facility. You prepare to hijack the delivery truck to Black Mesa. Killing its driver is an unforunate side effect. You then disguise yourself as the truck driver to enter Black Mesa.

Having gained access into the complex, you then make your way to the lower levels of Black Mesa, and switch the sample for an impure one before the experiment is to take place. Things are bound to go wrong with a switched sample, and the administrator will be made the scapegoat. He will take the blame. And you will have your revenge.

    very short/no combat/no structured ending/pointless. Sorry I can not find some constructed and positives points to quote.

  3. Ten Four Reviews

    This level feels like more like an interactive set piece than a shoot-em-up. You play a mercenary trying to sabotage the experiment at Anomalous Materials. Yes, that experiment.

    The first part is actually quite effective, as you can hear the scientists talking Gordon through the experiment. Very nostalgic. But all that you’re really doing is walking around until you find a button. It would have been cool if you had to bypass some security systems or something. But instead you just open some doors, ride down a couple of lifts and put on a HEV. I really felt that an opportunity was wasted. At the very least a security guard could have asked what you were doing. Once you’ve pressed the button, you leave. And then the excitement begins…

    Except it doesn’t really.
