Following this for quite a while and learning it would never be finished saddened me, however, I am grateful the alpha was released :)

While the pacing is sloppy, the balancing is non-existent and many elements of the game are unpolished and unfinished, the level design is superb, the attention to detail is marvelous and the atmosphere smothers the player in foreboding.

While it may never be finished and it is quite glitchy, what Bunker 66 has to show is worth the download :)

Back in the golden days of hl2 modding, this was something I played multiple times, and looking back at it, I sincerely wish I could go back for more :(

The new additions to the hl2 campaign struck me with surprise and awe and the dozens of new weapons made the action tight and refreshing, with new additional monsters and player abilities to decimate them with.

It's a shame this only partially works with mod fixes following the may 2010 update. Perhaps someone with some free time on their hands is willing to give it a fix. But I know that probably won't ever happen.

It's a sin and shame, but at least I still have great memories booting this up for the first time :)

It's very well detailed and offers some nice scenery to explore and fun, tight combat. However, it ends abruptly without much of a payoff :(

While very short, it's fun, engaging and very well paced. Give it a go on a rainy afternoon :)

A nice blast from the past and an excellent mod overal.

The level design is articulately detailed yet isn't very diverse considering the location in Nova Prospekt.

That aside, the pacing is well done and the combat is tight and fun, not to mention it is interesting playing as a woman in an FPS for a change :)

Give it a go, it'll be sure to lighten up any dreary afternoon.

While quite detailed and entertaining at times, this mod has overwhelming problems.

There is an odd mixture of high definition models mixed with low definition models and textures and most of the maps have serious frame-rate issues, making progression on higher difficulty's almost impossible.

That being said, it looks like the mod was a work of love, considering how much detail is present in every map. If only the Gameplay and optimization stood up to the mapping quality :(

While it's a shame there are no servers around to support this Multiplayer mod, it's still very interesting to utilize the weapons this mod has to offer and seeing just how far the Goldsrce engine can be pushed :)

Being a fan of gauntlet shooters, the design of the mod pleased me.

Enemies never came at you alone and the weapons had absurdly high ammo capacities, and I didn't care. The hour or so spent playing it seemed to go by in seconds up until the final battle.

It has a crap ending, but the game-play is sure to please fans of Doom and Serious Sam :)

It's a noble start and for what it's worth, it's a decent playthrough on a coffee break.

Some of the lighting in the mod needs extensive work and the way the combine appeared was rather buggy and was like shooting fish in a barrel. not to mention the mod was rather short and felt like a button-pressing adventure.

Otherwise, the level design was decent.

I hope the modder get's better in his next release, I'll be looking forward to it. :)

This mod was once very much playable and creepy as hell.

Unfortunately, it appears to be broken permanently after the may 2010 update.

I remember being on edge when I played this back in 2008, with the blinds drawn and my room submerged in darkness. The level design was top-notch and the atmosphere was wonderfully smothering and even scary when I progressed further and further into the mansion to uncover it's secrets.

It's all nostalgia now, as I am one of the few who managed to play it before it all broke. I suppose that's why I look back at it so fondly now, what with me being one of the few who fully appreciated the work before everything turned into man-hacks and gravity guns.

It really is a shame I cannot share this experience with anyone else anymore. This mod was once a beauty :(
