Hello! I am Miller,a fellow gamer and a half-life series veteran.
First things first,Hi mate!
Loving the mod so far,installed it and I'm about an hour into it.The effects are really nice,I'm loving the music,which seems to be a bit inspired by FEAR's soundtrack,the models look really nice too,the menu is nicely compiled and overall it's awesome.Now there are some things which in my opinion could use a bit of more work because they really seem to be dragging down the whole gameplay.The game feels a bit blocky,a bit..ehm...too mechanic,meaning there are not a lot of things to promote the black mesa's atmosphere in terms of dialogue or plot.The grunts are really slow,they do have a buggy AI and seem to often not notice me as a hostile,instead they just stare blatantly at me.
On another chapter,the npcs are brutal,that I love!It seems that bullsquids are really lethal and the houndeyes seem to do a lot of damage too.
It's very hard achieving the environement you wanted with source engine,I mean,look at Black Mesa and all the bloody time it took the devs to get everyting in order!Considering the devs team still has time and expectedly a list of thing to improve/change/add,I wish you lads success with your project!
The mapping is really good,the lights are excellent and the scripted events are terrifying,even though the combat was overwhelming,dying is easy and getting out alive from several situations is pretty damn hard.I think you did somehting with the AI,because the evemies are more brutal than with the standard AI.As it concludes from my review,you did a really good job and I recomend this mod to anyone who reads this!
