|This is a more direct port of the original classic Half-Life
game to the new Source engine than Counter-Strike which additionally was
much more revamped. It uses all the old textures and character models
- not even the upgraded ones used in Blue Shift. The biggest change is
that the game now supports the same physics engine as Half-Life 2 (so
bodies tend to bounce around more), and a few other things like upgraded
water effects. HL1 Source is available in the Silver and Gold Steam packages
when buying Half-Life 2, and in the Collector's Edition retail disc package.
With the release of the Source SDK tools for mod-makers, a lot of the
original mods can hopefully be ported to the Source engine as well. There
are already groups revamping the old HL1 textures and models so an even
better graphic port of the all-time classic game should come along someday.
