Not a bad start. Nice use of colour. Blue sparkling water is very Tron.
Mod Review on Jan 1st, 2013
The voice acting is this mod is so good it just brings those disgruntled Civil Defence guys to life. They all seem to look down on old Anders, (you the player) for some reason and I’m sure it’s not because of a few turned around cameras!
Being a Combine lackey you get to take on those alien loving terrorists with plenty of firepower, including the Combine APC!
Fun to drive and shoot freeman’s goons with gun and rocket along dark brooding streets through cars and buildings!
Then you have to earn your keep with a difficult “Keep Him Alive” shootout at the first post you stop at. I stopped playing this mod because I could not get through this section! But I did second time and remembered to save!
Weapon load out was excellent and felt more real than the usual “infinity” backpack, but the star has to be the drivable manhack.
An interestingly novel use of this former pain in my rear as an ally to take out those pesky barrier generators. Bravo!
Each section was so well designed and beautifully textured I sat in awe as I waited for the next to load. And waited and waited. Long loading times forgiven because the wait was worth it!
Bravo for including flooded sections as they appear so pretty on my monitor.
Another slice of nostalgia in a mod, only this time it was my old enemies from Xen! Even those floating big-heads and new Manta rays to bring down to earth!
My fellow cohorts were quite a laugh especially when two of them were trying to kick a door in. another clever use of the manhack as a door-blockade remover!
Now where’s that bloody hole! Ha; very sneaky!
This mod had a great ending without the usual, abhorrent “boss” fight. (Just my opinion) and I loved it all.
So I found out why Anders ghostly girlfriend was bothering him and it seems he is a complete and utter, you fill in the rest!
An amazing mod, that I’ve already played through twice and will try for a thrice tomorrow!
Sheer brilliance no wonder in got so many 2010 nominations!
Mod Review on Dec 17th, 2012
I have written a review for this brilliant version of the modder’s modification of this mod on Planetphillip.com and it is too large to fit here!
Suffice to say that this version of Mission Improbable is simply outstanding in nearly all areas and is a work of art to look at and great fun to play.
The new combine base is the best designed I have ever seen and it was a joy to play. Such height and depth, a truly epic level and well worth the wait.
The final ending was both a shock and a chuckle!

This is a great Combine mod, with the player as simply N0.42, (Now that is an important number!), on a mission to kill the peoples champion, G. Freeman.
The start is nicely epic, (a Combine theme ride for the kids at Disney?), as we see number 42 processed.
His combat suit is not like the other units, so we know he is a special Combine agent.
Base layout and combat is great fun and a bit of a challenge at times, especially when the familiar rebels shout, “Combine!” and I realise that’s me!
Having to fight your way out of your own Citadel is a bit rich but there was a pleasant airboat ride in those lovely, zombie infested sewers to follow! I chose slow and gunning the second time around as my health suffered in a couple of them dark room puzzles if I was fast and reckless!
A disguised Combine chopper in enemy hands was at the start of a frustrating jump, which I failed to make continuously the first time around. The later attempt was successful at the third try!
A quick bit of “Ravenholm” style trouble led to a new, but decrepit, jeep to drive and a shiny sniper rifle. The highlight of this game was this driving and sniping road trip in a very effective storm. Great sound and visuals made it very atmospheric and the sniper scopes view was just right for taking out those pesky rebels.
Ending at the seaside the next day, because it was now sunny, I let loose some manhacks and had a ball with that Combine gun emplacement. Rebels blowing up and flying all over the place!
Then I was shelved by the G-man!
A mod of good length and great fun, I’d play just for the storm section!

This was a wonderful slice of fun. Very kooky!
Mod Review on Sep 11th, 2012
A lot of mod packed into such a short time!
Second play using the newer version, the bloom seemed better, but still an issue at times. Otherwise a great play. Lots to explore and kill but a bloom issue gave me trouble seeing the sniper! But I had a great time taking down the strider and I even found new nooks to hide in!
A well-balanced mod starting with brainpower and ending with rocket power!
Mod Review on Sep 8th, 2012
I gave this a ten because this was truly a great work of horror storytelling and even had me scared and, most importantly, no issues to complain about. Ok, I admit to running around like an idiot in the first room because I failed to find the light switch. Moaning about this being a crap stupid mod, noclip’ng around, etc, then feeling foolish after watching the first minutes of a “youtube” walkthrough!
This time I had no stupid issues as I played along with my brain!
Great textures abound and the ever-creepy atmosphere haunts your every move, as does something large and unpleasant! This is a really disturbing asylum, and I’ve been in “Never Lose Hope Hospital” and your treatment is not good. And escaping fares little better!
This is so very weird and horrific and fascinating. Old-fashioned horror, with all the fog and mist, could even have been shot in sepia, but even in full colour it keeps its quaint charm. Still bloody creepy though!J
The lack of customised characters adds to its odd charm and has a lot of bright areas for a horror!
Having no weapons is never good, but Mother is here to help……..
Play this in the dark and shiver.

This is a great mod of high quality and I found very interesting to play. A lot of exploration and a dark foreboding atmosphere lead to moments of intense action, a little too intense for my survival on a couple of occasions! I had to use “god” mode to survive one such, gate-opening scene.
The village of “Tull” is a bit of sepia-toned frustration, due to AI disabling and crashing, but a reload fixed it and the game ran to the end with no issues.
Notes and keys add a nostalgic and humorous touch to a dark mod along with some witty little pastiches.
A “9” was missed due to the extreme difficulty of a few combat scenes and the crash-prone “Tull” section.
The surreal maps were somewhat surreal!J
Not a lot of snow but the water areas were delightful.

Nice short-story mod, toilet humour, music and an art gallery, what’s not to like!
Great narration and visual style, although I did have to read the narration, but the voice was pitched just right to match that sombre scene in the rain.
Some heavier weapons might be handy though, maybe a mop and bucket combo!
