7/10 good fighting experience not without flaws, can be tedious sometimes.
Needs more unavoidable fight situations.
I mean I won most of the fights by corner ninja method - stay out of battle area if possible and shoot behind a corner. Good example is a small cabin with glass windows in a first fight - I just waited for Combine soldiers to go up a ramp and meet my buckshot into face.
Needs more calm moments in between fights.
I mean come on this non stop action is not good for HL based mod. Good example is a first hunter battle - casual players will probably ragequit at this point. Where is exploration moments?
Needs more reason in map building.
I had a feeling of playing series of rooms connected together. I discovered rebel soldiers in Combine locked area (?). I discovered gravity gun occasionally just to remove an energy barrier and later discovered there was no containment for zombies from other side at all.

Basically, big graphic overhaul for Oblivion. Same problems though.
- UI. You can't assign anything at numeric keys. You got that Q button which helps you change weapon in three steps instead of one.
- Bad animations. Horse riding is pain to watch after M&B and RDR. And you still can't fight mounted!
- Unbelievable NPC behavior. Repetitive quotes -- beyond belief. Stealth is a joke again. "I think I heard something!" -- No ****???
- Scale of the world is just not enough for desirable epicness. Everything is feels very tight like taking place in your backyard.
- Questionable level design. Unavoidable fights, which are triggered and you can't avoid them. (so much for stealth)
- Whole big world revolves around YOU. That lazy bastards, can't do anything without you. And of course they trust you first time they ever see you.
- Dialogues is poetic and beautiful. "Oh hi, stranger, go to X, bring me Y". Somebody was disappointed with Fallout 3? Really?
- Questionable design for leveling. Perks is great innovation, but the main and secondary skills are gone? Gaining experience at everything -- in Elder Scrolls game?
This game is stuck in 2006. It's good but not great -- same scale, same problems. And overall feeling -- it is... sketchy.
Real MUST PLAYS for PC so far:
Battlefield 3 (when not CTD)
