If I get a penny every time I see something primitive, someone primitive, or someone primitive doing something primitive... I would be the richest Prothean in the galaxy.
Entropy: Zero is proof that there's still more to be expected from the Half-Life series, and the Source Engine in general. The game/mod puts the player in the eyes of a metrocop in City 10, where you'll be fighting your way through rebels, zombies, headcrabs and vorts. The game also has an amazing soundtrack, that definitely fits the Half-Life theme. Difficulty has been modified, making all enemies a bit tougher, though at the same time makes them really easy to kill for the most part with a few headshots. Guns have been changed; the MP7 is no longer complete and utter garbage, doing reliable damage, and having semi-decent accuracy when fired in short controlled bursts. The pulse rifle is basically a light machine gun, with a greatly increased clip size. All in all, Entropy: Zero is a great example of a well-made mod.
Though unfortunately, I have seen some issues with it that I will discuss:
There are a few glitches in some bits. For example, the bit where you protect a stalker while he lights the way and unlocks doors for you... sometimes he just dies randomly. There are no zombies around to attack it, and I'd already killed the barnacles upfront so he wouldn't walk into them. And then if there are zombies, they kill him in one hit, which is kinda harsh, considering fast zombies can just leap at him from across the corridor. The final battle with the boss vortigaunt also bears a glitch. If you kill the vort with a pulse rifle energy ball, the vort disintegrates but the fight continues, so you're stuck and are forced to reload your save.
Other than that, there's a lot of "What the heck am I supposed to do?" moments, the worst one being underground with the infinite supply of fast zombies and headcrabs. Makes it kinda hard to think straight when you're constantly being attacked.
8.5/10. Despite its issues, the mod definitely deserves a go. Great job, Breadman.
Cartoon-y graphics, smooth game play, challenging. 9/10. Looking forward for the full release.
Why did this mod got Greenlit on Steam? Seriously? There are tons of amazing mods out there, and this gets the spotlight?
Not a bad mod, though it seems to crash every now and then...
This game was so damn fun to play!
