Mod Review on Dec 21st, 2014

Very disappointing. At first you will probably love it, the graphics are really awesome, it's a big improvement over the original mod. But that's the only good thing in this remake. The creators wanted to make some new voices for the characters. An attempt gone horribly wrong, the officers in Saigon sound really stupid! The maps were remade, they look better but the team removed many great parts from the original like the truck/plane/boat rides, or the spaceship at the end. They also removed an entire portion of the game, no more Colonel Kurtz and the Half-Life 2 section! Zombies can't be killed by bullets anymore, and now they can only be killed by explosives. This makes every firearm entirely pointless. Some weapons were also removed. Stay away from this one unless you want to see the new graphics!

Mod Review on Dec 20th, 2014

This is one of the best Half-Life mods ever! This mod is set in the Vietnam War, and it's kinda similar to the movie "Apocalypse Now". However, it becomes much different when you will see the first zombies. Your mission is to assassinate an US Army officer called Kurtz, however you will soon notice that there is a much more complicated plot in the game. This is a total conversion: the mod uses very few resources from the original Half-Life, it has many new sounds, textures and models. You can fight your enemies with an authentic collection of Vietnam War weaponry, like the M16 and the AK-47. And you will also use a Chainsaw (excellent against zombies)! You will fight US Army Soldiers (but you will frequently encounter friendly US Mike Force soldiers), Vietcongs and zombies. You will also have a sidekick called Barney, he's really similar to the original security guard but now he packs a powerful Colt .45 with a near-perfet aim! He will be needed for special tasks like operating radios and driving vehicles. While transiting from one chapter to another, you will stay in a vehicle while Barney drives it to another location. You can order your troops to do something with some neat voice commands. Unfortunately the friendly AI can be quite dumb and can't follow you properly! You will also encounter a few medics during the game, they can be extremely useful for healing you and other soldiers especially at higher difficulty levels. The locations are really amazing, you will fight in US Military bases, vietnamese cities and villages in the jungles of Vietnam. In many maps you will encounter civilians but they are just there for scenery! You can read many documents (high entertaining value), collect items to perform some special actions although the puzzles can be VERY confusing because of the design of the maps (you will do lots of backtracking). Overall, an absolute play. Also check the remake called Heart of Evil Napalm Edition (but be sure to play this one first!).

Mod Review on Oct 26th, 2014

Nice mod, full of new interesting ideas for a fresh gameplay experience! I liked the mapping and the theme of this mod, you are working in a big city (the skybox is great, full of skyscrapers everywhere) and you must defend yourself during a terrorist attack while working during night. The mod has lots of interesting characters to play with, including a friendly security guard that will help you in your adventure. You have a new type of flashlight, now it's an hand-held device, not the old Half-Life flashlight. You must select it from your inventory and then press the "fire" button to turn it on. A fire axe is your new melee weapon, one pistol taken from dead security guards and you have two new firearms stolen from the hands of terrorists. You can pick up items from the floor like radios or keys! The mod includes two different endings and I really liked the extras, especially the police report. At the end, you can also watch the news at the television about the bombing of the building! The mod has realistic damage, you don't have any medkit and because of this you must try to take as little damage as possible. You can sneak behind enemies, and your weapons don't have ironsights, you must try to aim and fire in short bursts because the weapons can get an high recoil if you spray everywhere. The new ammo management system is also different, You get a few bullets from your dead enemies, not full clips like in Half-Life anymore. You can find 22 bullets on an enemy, of only 2 bullets. Ammo management is also important. Voice acting was a little funny but it does the job. My only complaint are the badly modeled characters, they look weird and not very realistic. But overall, this is a very nice mod, play it!

Game Developers should understand that when their work is so bad like GoGoGo! they should avoid releasing it to the public. This is simply terrible, needs lots of improvements. I fully agree with MrRatermat.

Mod Review on Oct 5th, 2014

I can't make a good review because I didn't find any server with humans in them, this game is apparently dead (can someone confirm that?). I'm a big Team Fortress Classic fan and this game is really similar to it, I'm a Quake fan as well and I decided to try QWTF. After playing the game, looking at a few gameplay videos and wiki pages I really liked it but I couldn't enjoy it because of the lack of populated servers. Because of that I can't make a proper review, all I can say is that this game looks awesome!

This is simply perfect. It's really well done and useful when playing Half-Life. Valve understood this and started adding subtitles to their games starting with half-Life 2, but they didn't add them to the original game! I can't wait to see subtitles for Opposing Force and Blue Shift!

Mod Review on Aug 28th, 2014 - 4 people don't

I just don't like it. I can't believe that this was included in the official Counter-Strike and Half-Life CD! It's badly made. The design is not linear, and you can easily get lost. I really hate running everywhere, even backtracking just for finding the exit. I also hate checking every corridor for something! It's too difficult, in the first mission you must fight lots of grunts with very little supplies, and then fight in a Temple filled with Assassins! I almost died there. Finished with 20 Health Points, and then got attacked by an entire swarm of Baby Headcrabs. Uh. Then there was a mission in a Park where I always got lost, and had to noclip when I had to escape. The third mission was so boring and confusing that I deleted this mod. Too hard and too confusing. I had to run everywhere to find something, and then deleted the mod. Waste of time.

Mod Review on Aug 15th, 2014

One of the best mods, but with some imperfections. The idea of playing as a Zombie and an Headcrab is great and there is an interesting RPG System to change your classes and upgrade your powers. The mapping is quite good and looks like Black Mesa. It has a good atmosphere and exciting battles, they are quite hard and you need to use your skills there! Black Mesa Personnel, including Barneys and Scientists, use strong weapons too now. Barneys use even Shotguns and Combat Rifles while a few Scientists use Pistols. As a Zombie you can have Special Powers and certain Classes and you can also grab Headcrabs from the floor and throw them at your victims. As a Headcrab you can even use a nice Stealth System to sneak past your enemies. However the new Models were simply horrible: why did the Creator include those horrible PS2 Models in the mod? I hated them. That's why I lowered the rating of this mod.

Mod Review on Aug 13th, 2014

Very bad mod. First of all, it's in German. Okay, I understand, the author is German. But the majority of Half-Life players are Americans and who isn't probably can understand English. English is the official language of Half-Life! If you make a mod just in German nobody, except for the (very) small German community will understand it. Basically everybody said lots of stuff in the game and I didn't understand a single letter. Second, it has an horrible framerate and r_speed. This mod wasn't optimized and polished at all, my copy was choppy like crazy. It also has some really horrible custom models, I seriously vomited after seeing the new ugly MP-5 and the old Counter-Strike Shotgun. Okay, the Shotgun wasn't ugly, but you are wearing an HEV Suit and the Shotgun is being wielded by bare hands without an HEV Suit on it, wtf? It's also full of puzzles very hard to understand and impossible battles, uh, just don't play this bucket of crap. It starts off in a good way, on a Skyscraper! I was excited, I believed that I was going to fight in a City! But then it goes down in the toilet. I flushed the water and deleted this disgusting "thing". Play something else, seriously!

MAMMA MIA Sorry i'm just too excited to review THIS FANTASTIC MOD OMGROFLWTFLOL let's be serious now! The mapping is gorgeous. Basically it's a real world map. Do you understand? Open the window and take a look outside. You see a street (probably). In this mod you see maps that look exactly like their real life counterparts. Models are incredibly realistic, they look very lively and fantastically animated, every single finger is animated! Heads are modeled from real life VIPs (ex. Justin Bieber, Barack Obama, Adolf Hitler, Queen Elizabeth...). Voices are pure gold, registered in an high quality sound ( MHz) and because of this it requires top notch hardware. Sounds are brilliant: zombie sounds are taken from real life top secret military experiments about mutations made just for this fantastic piece of platinum/gold/silver/gold nugget. Bullet sounds are taken from a war started just for this piece of platinum/gold/silver/gold nugget! A lot of soldiers and millions of civilians were harmed during the registration of the sounds. But who cares anyway? Everybody can die, the important things is that this mod still lives. Alien sounds are taken from an expedition made by the Black Mesa Laboratories on Xen started just for (again) this piece of platinum/gold/silver/gold nugget. Every time that a Bullet pops out from your gun you can see an enormous Muzzle Flash that will give an heart attack to everybody near you. You will see bullets flying everywhere thanks to the brilliant physics system called PLATINUM PHYSICS. The only problem is hardware: you need a 1024 GB of RAM, 563 GB of Hard Drive, a Radeon or Nvidia version and other cool techno babble that you probably can't buy because you are just a poor person. Bad for you. Wow, did you really read this? Get a life! Oh and P.S. this is MOTY for times!
