I am a PC gamer who sometimes likes to try to map for HL1, HL2, and mods. I also really like to play games. I love it.

This is such an original Half-Life 2 mod I remember playing in the past so long ago. I played it in 2006, now I give a review in 2015.
The scenery is beautiful. Each level, I become more overwhelmed at the creativity and hard work put forth to create the level. Most people call it "mediocre" or "average", but this mod was made when Half-Life 2 was released, and honestly, some levels in HL2, I bet people call some levels "mediocre" right now. But in my eyes, I just cannot get over each level.
The battles are intense. This might feel like a one-man army, but Freeman is still human. I, at a lot of times, find myself in a situation of low HP or low ammo, and that's fun! I love wounding up in a scenario of chaos and fear, where each step I make, I take another risk into losing more and more of what I have left.
The story is great. I feel horrified at times where I feel the rebels have abandoned me, I'm left alone as I watch my friends die, I realize who my mentor has been the whole time, and more. If I were making the story, I might've not made Gordon's friends be killed off, but stuff like this is what makes a story dramatic. I especially like that end. XD
My favorite moments in the game are the hallucination scene (where all I can keep thinking is "WTF"), the chase scene with the G-Man and Breen, The End, and a lot of battles.
I hope this game still works, because I'm going for another run (maybe even on Hard).

This is a very nice mod. It was fun and scary.
Graphics: The detail is fantastic. I'm going to have to give it a 10/10
Storyline: You never found out how the darkness(That is what I call it) escaped and killed everyone in the facility. You never found out what that strange figure was that was watching you in the room with the huge computer. You never found out what happened to the S.W.A.T team. You never found out what happened to the S.W.A.T guy at the end. I need to give the storyline a 2/10. UNLESS, if you guys are making a second one and will answer questions, then I will give it a 6/10.
Gameplay: I like using the lights as cover from the darkness. It was also very fun to walk in the empty hallways all alone, thinking your S.W.A.T unit is gone. I must give this a 9/10. Not 10/10 because it was a little confusing at first.
Puzzles: Some of the puzzles were really hard to understand, like the door code puzzle. I was stuck with the pictures for so long I needed to look at a walkthrough. Although, some were a little fun to try and solve, like the generator puzzle. 7/10
Mysteries: This is a special thing, while I was playing, I was thinking... "What is going on here? Is the game hinting me at something?" I thought for a minute. Black Snow... Black Snow. Something out of curiousity popped in my mind. Slenderman maybe is causing this? I know what you are thinking, What the heck are you talking about, but... I remember, slenderman can glitch cameras, like at the begining, the camera kept glitching. Also, black snow... why is it called that? Well, slenderman's suit is black, and snow is white and slenderman's skin is white. Also in the background when the camera glitches for a second, a figure can be seen. What could it be? This is just an idea, I am probably wrong, but still, it is fun to try and think of the mystery yourself. 10/10
Fun fun game! It is totally worth your time!

They were amazing. I felt so scared in many areas because the textures made them look so.
The levels were outstanding and freaky too. You guys chose some pretty good places to put the monsters.
They were terrifying in many ways.
You guys could've made it easier. Health was so scarce. I am nearly dead all the time. Unless the game is ment to be hard, then regard what I said.
Some puzzles are just amazing. The puzzle with the arrows and the number tiles was pretty cool. Though I had to write the arrows down on a paper. The only puzzle that was twisting my brain and confusing me so much was the one when you need to unweld the garage door. I spent so much time looking for something and wasting my drill battery. Then I notice it's right there on the ground.
Almost every scare has gotten me so much. I yelled out loud almost all the time. :D
It was too confusing and I didn't know just what the heck happened in the normal ending and hard ending.
Overall: I give the mod a...

This is the best scary mod I ever played my entire life. It's 10000x times better than Nightmare House 2, Afraid of Monsters: Directors cut, and F.E.A.R(Well, fear and cry of fear have maybe the same scares)
The Graphics is awesome, it completely beats the goldsource engine, even knowing this IS ran on the goldsource engine. 10/10 for graphics
P.S. I don't blame the developers for the graphics getting weird after 2 hours, after all, it's just a bug and can be fixed by restarting.
The storyline makes you want to play it and find out what happens to Simon. The storyline is really cool in a way, just... some way I cannot explain it. Maybe I just love it a lot. I don't know. 10/10 for the storyline.
P.S. I'm hallucinating...
Scares. Scares. Scares. I've probably been scared by every single thing that is supposed to scare you! It's just so amazing how like, they scare you, but you still want to continue without looking on a walkthrough. :D 10/10 for the ssssscares
The gameplay is freaken amazing. I love the realism. The bosses may be able to kill you in one hit, but that is probably real. I really like the inventory and how you can carry things. That really intrested me. I also like how the guns recoil is realistic! Well, I mean, I never actaully fired a gun before, but the recoil is really nice! I mean, almost every game with guns, there recoil just isn't... I mean(okay, I just said I mean about three times, now four), you can't expect someone to pick up a gun and fire like an expert. 10/10 for the gameplay!
P.S. Boom! Boom! Ouch! The recoil made the gun hit my head!
I love this mod so much. I know for sure I'm going to play this many times.

Mod Review on Aug 25th, 2011
This mod is pretty fun! This freaken scared me almost all the time! I have to be honest though, Cry of Fear is scarier. But this is the second scariest in my list of scary games I've played!
