Pick up the crowbar of research scientist Gordon Freeman, and find yourself on an alien-infested Earth being picked to the bone, its resources depleted, its populace dwindling. You must rescue the world from the wrong you unleashed back at Black Mesa.

The original Half-Life sent a shock through the game industry with its combination of pounding action and continuous, immersive storytelling. Valve's debut title won more than 50 Game of the Year awards, was named "Best Game Ever" by PC Gamer, and launched a franchise which has since sold over 11 million units worldwide. By taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original Half-Life and adding startling new realism and responsiveness, Half-Life 2 opens the door to a world where the player’s presence affects everything around him or her, from the physical environment to the behaviors and even the emotions of both friends and enemies.

Technical note: most mods “for Half-Life 2” are actually cross-compatible with all of Valve's Source engine games. Check a mod’s profile for details on whether a specific game is needed.

Hello All!

It has been a long time. You thought this MOD was dead right? Well, more like, it was put to sleep for a few years.

I considered it finished in 2012, then waited patiently for the graffiti, to be able to quickly smack those onto some walls left blank, then release it. Unfortunately in the meantime the Source engine/SDK/etc. has changed so much that the same exact levels can't be compiled anymore. It would require tens of hours of work to remake intricate brushwork and convert big parts of the levels PROPERLY into meshes to be able to compile them again. Unfortunately I don't have time for that now or in the foreseeable future so please take a look at the attached graffiti and tags and imagine them onto those empty walls where I intended them to be. :-)


I takes about 45 minutes to play through it. A bit more if you check out everything. I hope you'll find something interesting in there if you decide to download and take a look.

Please comment what you liked or would change. Have fun!


Thanks to all the awesome people who helped in creating this MOD!

Google Smod Cvars if you want to reduce the amount of effects in-game so you don't crash as much. Just place it in the "sourcemods" and start it up.

This is the best game ever. What's better is you don't have to run out to the store to get it. You don't even need an internet conection.
Just take any three of the following games;
Star Wars (any)
Tomb Raider (any)
HL 1
BF 1942
Pac Man
Starfleet Command (any)

Smash three of this games into a blender and get a copy of the Battlefield Earth (great book horrible movie) and toss this in as well.
After about an hour, take all of the shards, silvery dust and glittering hunks of plastice and rub it into you chest. Do this until you realize you are stupid.
Rinse and Repeat.

Sadly it never ends for Gordon Freeman, he is gaming worlds Jack Bauer, consistently going from one bad day to the next. No sooner have you blown up the head of the Xenian Nihilanth and discussed career prospects with the mysterious G-Man than he tosses you in the mix again. Another train ride another mysterious situation leaving Gordon (and you the gamer) none the wiser, but thats what we like about the Half-life series and all it's canonical universe, Valve will always give you a Palm d'or plot…
