Mod Review on Mar 31st, 2013

Once again you find yourself in the shoes of some lucky shmuck who found an H.E.V suit ready for the taking.

And by golly is it a fun little adventure.

While there are some bugs to be found and getting the scenes to work can be a bit of a pain, not to mention the voice acting ranges from s'okay and average to grating and 'Oh my god, they didn't even TRY!, what good there is far outweighs the negatives.

I greatly enjoyed the action and scripted events as well as the level design, stealth and infiltration gameplay and the pacing of the mod overall.

It's far from perfect, but it's a great example of what source mods can offer :)

Game Review on Mar 31st, 2013

While it's nice to see WW2 again in the FPS genre, this entry in the long-running MOH series is not without it's flaws.

For starters, you can beat the dang thing in 4 to 5 hours. And while it is challenging, there are many times where I just couldn't see who was killing me. Not to mention that some of the checkpoints are spread thin in some areas.

However, the attention to detail is good, the score is excellent, the weapons can be upgraded and the levels are surprisingly non-linear for the most part. Also, the idea of jumping from a plane and choosing where to start the level is a very unique idea I haven't seen before.

Give this a go for some good ol' fashioned WW2 action, it's very cheap nowadays and for the most part, it is a good-quality shooter :)

Very rarely do you play from another POV, such as the combine. And very rarely is such a mod done with great attention to detail.

And that is what makes it all the more tragic that the mod is now dead D:

Combine Combat is much like Combine Destiny, as much of the fighting is between you and zombies, but Combine Combat offers far more interesting fights with the rebels.

A few extra weapons and even a new car liven up the action, a new geiger counter makes ventures into radiated zones a deadly adventure and the level design is also quite a treat to the eyes.

Give Combine Combat a go, it is very much worth your time :)

Very short, while very well detailed in the beggining.

However, the level design gets rather clunky once you descend into the mines.

But, I am looking forward to future installments, and I hope they are much longer :)

Not a bad addition to the Quake mapping library. While the level design is clunkier then others, it has a nice old-school vibe going for it.

Not bad, keep practicing :)

One of many mods for half-life 2 that should have been finished.

The demo itself has tremendous effort put into textures, models and atmosphere.

While there is one scare in the mod, the atmosphere is what held it together.

And then it ends.

It's a shame, really, even for a demo it is abruptly short.

But what it had to show was amazing, if only the mod team continued development :(

Wonderfully detailed and even somewhat challenging yet it ends before it really picks up any momentum.

Still, it's a great mod and those looking for marvelous level design should not be disapointed :)

While it ends rather too quickly, Spherical Nightmares is chock full of great action pieces and incredible level design and superb atmosphere.

Get it while it's still hot :)

Mod Review on Mar 1st, 2013

While on the short side and somewhat unbalanced, with odd enemy placement and monotonous button pushing to advance into the next area, TEW has a nice setting which isn't used nearly enough in shooters and has some decent amount of detail and texture work.

Not Martin Schultz's best work, but it was a nice try, and above all, it was something I somewhat enjoyed :)

This isn't even an alpha, considering how badly it's been done. Why anybody would consider releasing a mod like this in such a state is baffling.
