Half-Life:Black Guard

Mod review

Ripe with great detail and challenge, Black Security is a nice edition to the half-life modding library.

There are issues with balancing however, as the initial release had a difficulty that jumped left and right, not to mention this mod could have used an english translator, as much of the dialogue comes off as fatuous and... well... silly...

Regardless, it's a nice way to eat up a gloomy afternoon and shouldn't be missed :)



Mod review

I went in expecting a survival horror mod, and I was half-right.

What I wasn't expecting to do was nearly rip my hair out in frustration from the difficulty and overwhelming (And nearly seizure inducing) horde of enemies that attacked at every turn.

And I loved every second of this pulse-pounding thrill ride.

There are some balancing issues, some bugs and like people have complained about, the ball-crunching difficulty, but a fan of old-school shooters like myself will feel right at home while playing Tr1p.

I sincerely hope the modder makes more, this was one hell of a ride! :D


Bunker 66

Mod review - 1 agrees

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 :)


Half-Life 2 Substance

Mod review - 4 agree - 1 disagrees

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 :)


Random 17

Mod review - 1 agrees

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 :(



Mod review - 1 agrees

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


Riot Act

Mod review - 1 agrees

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.


Radiation Alert: Episode 1

Mod review - 2 agree - 1 disagrees

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 :(


Half-Life: Weapon Edition

Mod review

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 :)



Mod review

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 :)
