Nuclear Cataclysm

Mod review - 5 agree

Fantastic mod level design and gameplay quality is AAA, this could have been a original Crysis DLC from Crytek. Petty the voice acting for some characters was to different from the original characters but the voice actors did a fantastic job nonetheless.

Blameless

Game review

Level design is very good, puzzles make sense, detective kind gameplay as great potencial, in all a very nice demo, only problem, to short even for a free game so in all honesty i can't give it more then 7, but the developer has potencial.

INFRA

Game review

My review

Pros:

Very nice level design, among the best i saw in Source.
Puzzles very well integrated into the levels and not very hard.
Perfect length for what it gives in gameplay.
The levels "story" that means the felling they convey to you is very nice.

Cons:

There's no real action on this game, there's some spots with some urgency and the potential for you to die but they are few and between, the majority of the game is walking around solving harmless puzzles, taking useless pictures, reading papers, hearing voice overs from the main character and phone conversations between him and his boss.

About pictures the camera unfortunately serves no real purpose, it has no real connection with the gameplay it fells has if it was implemented at last minute and the game was not made around it.

The story to me was average and the voice acting from the lead character didn't really helped to make it more enticing, has a non native English speaker sometimes it was hard to comprehend him because of the accent.

The save system is very simplistic and has the unfortunate potential to make you die in a infinite loop, it happened to me.

Mars City Security

Mod review - 5 agree - 1 disagree

Fantastic and fun multiplayer mod with coop and all normal multiplayer modes, on a game that add almost no multiplayer at all, and a very basic net code, is to prove that talent is the more important aspect on the quality of a game/mod not the game or engine where you make it.

Silent Hill: Alchemilla

Mod review - 1 agree

This mod shows that was made by Silent Hill Fans that did understand the feeling and mood of the original games, the level design is truly fantastic, AAA and true to the original games, the story is as well very Silent Hill like. But why don't i give this mod a 10 or even a nine you ask, it will come as a surprise but is not because of the lack of combat and monsters. I don't give more than 8 because i feel the developers let a big opportunity pass, a opportunity to use more psychological horror, you don't need monsters or combat to scare people, penumbra and Amnesia have shown that, sound could have been used to much more effect to scare, screams on the distance, footsteps below or above, chains rattling, doors opening by themselves, whispers in the distance, stuff changing place without notice, etc, etc, they tried a little with the mannequins moving but was too little and too few, i know the silent hill setting is a tad limiting in the kind of scares they could produce, but they could have made a new game inspired by silent hill but with aspects of other new horror games like the frictional games ones.

Blade Yautja

Mod review

A 7 for the rough edges, that is really expected on a one developer mod but i still can't give it a 10. I must say this mod is really a labor of love, it shows from the start to finish, and has some features that are chock full of potential, they just need more work. The reason i do not give a 10 to this mod is because of this reasons, one is the cloack system, it needs two keys to work, one is just a visual effect, that as some small glitches and the second key is in reality a cheat in disguise imo, by hitting that key i think you are just enabling a notarget cheat to the AI, at least that is what feels like to me, i can be in their face, jump and make noise and they will not react, again that is what it seems has i haven't seen the underlying code, second the difficulty is also very high, i'm not against high difficulty mind you, but when a simple mouse can kill a predator something is not well, third the predator visions are nice but the heat vision takes a big toll on the performance, rendering it almost unusable to me, that is not good for a predator game has it is the main vision mode for the creature.

StarCry : Reloaded

Mod review

Extremely hard even on easy, a zat gun on the series killed with two shots here it only kills after 4 or 5, the staff weapon is very inaccurate, much more them it was on the TV series, the human weapons are almost useless and run out of ammo very fast, you will spend a full magazine on a single jaffa and still he will not die, you will be using the jaffa weapons more times than not because of that, this game is a reload fest and that is a sign of a very badly designed and unbalanced gameplay. Stopped playing at the first boss, it is extremely hard, and that is because the tank you drive is very hard to maneuver, is slow and becomes unstable every time you shot the cannon, making it even harder to drive the tank, they also disabled kicksave on the boss fight, so if you spend half an hour trying to kill it and you want to save to not start all from scratch you are out of luck, is die start again die start again until you rage quit like i did.
