The game that practically started the 3D sandbox genre.
Well detailed and full of life at the time of it's release, the game was a hard, blood-soaked romp through a pseudo-New York City at a time where America and much of the world was experiencing untold Paranoia and Anger the likes of which the world hadn't seen since the cold war.
Reception from gamers was staggeringly positive and the negative response from rights-groups, politicians, parents and big-brother alike was out of this world.
GTAIII officially kicked off the GTA series as a best-seller with new methods of gameplay and atmosphere not many folks had seen before and a level of exploration that kept players glued to their controllers and PC's for hours on end.
But has it aged well?
After playing the previous games, coming back to GTAIII was a punch to the gut. I simply forgot how hard the game was and how wonky the car physics were!
And while the game offers a lot to do, the player is given buckets of money with not a whole lot to spend it on.
These little cons don't change that fact the game is a blast, even though most players today will be begging for a break from the hard difficulty and the wonky physics can ruin a mission at the last minute and incite rage in the most hardened GTA fans.
One hell of a blast down memory lane!

Not a bad start.
The level design is tight and the gameplay is tense, with close-combat zombie fighting and combine near the end.
It's a nice little mini-mod with a lot of action packed within, give it a go :)

A wonderful joke mod that does a phenomenal job lampooning modern military shooters.
Give it a go for some good laughs :D

A VAST improvement over the previous mod, with greater level design and firefights!
The mod is also substantially longer, with great atmosphere and a better focus on the story and just what the scientists in challenger deep were doing at the bottom of the ocean.
It does come with it's hitches, however.
There are frame-rate issues here and there, and the larger open areas make fights overwhelming at times and hard to navigate.
However, it is a great remake of the original.
Give it a go :D

Challenging and well detailed, it's a shame this little mod wasn't continued upon :(

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 :)

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 :(

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 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 on Apr 25th, 2013
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 :)
