The Mutant Factor

Mod review

Strange story but worth it for the level design alone, the graphics and mapping are second to none in Crysis mods.

Wreckage

Mod review - 2 agree

The best action-oriented Crysis mod of all time, and it most likely will never be dethroned.

MISERY

Mod review - 3 agree - 13 disagree

One of the smartest, most complete mods around for CoP, which compared to SHOC, is notoriously difficult to find good mods for. Billions of fanpatches and slight tweak mods exist for CoP and barely any of them do what they promise. But MISERY is extremely up to date, providing the best mods available for CoP while introducing some of its own choices.

I love the starting class system, the new weapon mechanics, the swift brutality of combat, the new animations, the atmosphere (no pun intended) tweaks and the grim, foreboding nature of CoP is almost overwhelming with this mod. The new weaponry is really cool, the new UI is a lot better than the bloated vanilla one and you can tell this mod is made with class and style.

It is, however, difficult. I won't even say difficult, I'll say its hellish--to me, this is good. To others? Maybe not. This makes AMK look like Rookie mode on Complete 2009. You're gonna be lucky to have more than 30 rounds for your main weapon. You'll have plenty for your pistol, but your pistol still blows until you can afford a revolver or colt 45. You'll be starving, literally, with the new realistic food system. Every encounter will seem like your last day on earth and everything is soaked in difficulty and immersion.

I have a few complaints that the modder should address, however, to optimize the experience:

1: Jogging takes stamina out way too quickly, end of subject. It's not realistic its bugged.
2: Ten starting bullets for the sniper is silly. Come on now. We're a military agent, not some street urchin who found a gun.
3: Starving while asleep needs to be fixed.

Dark Fall: Lost Souls

Game review - 1 agrees

Unbelievably underrated, wonderful and polished game. Great story, I agree with Tanshaydar on this fully except I don't like to give out ten's, but it's very close to a perfect horror PnC

Best mod for Warband, but be sure to follow the official thread. Moddb is always updated last ,and right now it's up to 1.37 on the official thread and is way behind at 1.34 here

Sword of Damocles

Mod review

Ambitious and rewarding, the Warband version is much better though. Vanilla M&B gets too little love.
