Quoted from Half-Life: Blue Shift Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Half-Life: Blue Shift reviews & previews
"Blue Shift is going to be a pretty short expansion (it's said to clock in at 1/3 the size of the original game through 27 new levels)... Expect to run into Gordon Freeman on your adventures... Expect to rely a lot more on NPC characters this time around..."
"...is it worth picking up? If you don't already have Opposing Force, absolutely. You probably will if you're a total Half-life cultist too. For everyone else, you might wonder why all of Blue Shift isn't offered on the Internet as a free download."
"If you have a yearning for more Half-Life, Blue Shift will definitely satisfy you for a little while, but this is probably the original Half-Life’s swansong, and it would have been nice to see them take things a step beyond the cut and paste action format."
"Unfortunately for Blue Shift, it didn't improve as much as the competition has... Gearbox really did deliver more fun per hour than Valve did itself with Half-Life. The problem is that there aren't enough hours."
"There’s really nothing intrinsically wrong with Blue Shift; it’s more Half-Life killin’ fun, and there’s nothing wrong with that formula. The thing that ultimately forces me to give it a low rating is how damnably short it is..."
