After studying scenic arts (theoretical and practical research in theatre, the new media and especially in between ;)) at the university of Hildesheim, Germany, I am now looking forward to become a writer and editor of texts for games and other media! :) My interest in modding is not only scientific (diploma thesis on the deve- lopment of computer game modifications) but also artistically minded, as in my first project, the Far Cry "SturmMOD", in which William Shakespeare's play "The Tem- pest" meets Far Cry... Although I`m currently busy writing for commercial adventure games, I try to help where I can, so if you got a problem or questions or simply want to chat, don`t hesitate to contact me! :)
This is one of these examples of mods which are equal if not superior to commercial games - in terms of length, game design and atmosphere. Most of the time you will be too frightened to play on while not being able to stop playing because your actions feel that important for all the extremly well written characters (amazing voice acting as well!) you meet and because you want to know more about the intricate story. All in all, this is a must-play for anyone who enjoys horror, likes to explore detailed environments and challenging but never unfair gameplay!
This mod not only excels at the question "Is this really done on Far Cry 1?!" with its original graphic effects, twisted architecture and dark-dream-like atmosphere but also simply offers a thought-provoking and sometimes scary journey for everyone enyjoying experimental and exploratory interactive experiences!
As many of the reviewers already have pointed out the excellency of this mod among others stems from its overall quality of mapping as well as its smart and often surprising ways of placing enemies and events. But what I find particulary impressive is that USS Darkstar, being one of the first Half-Life mods, shows that sometimes it isn't all about new content but about using mostly original material with few additions and alterations in creative ways to also offer an unique experience.
