I am The Evina. I do a little bit of everything from making maps for Cry of Fear and Source games to writing fiction novels to programming and web design and many other things. I like to review Source mods. A perfect 10 is reserved for mods that blow my mind. This is a list of mods I have contributed to: G String (voice acting [announcer]), Aperture Beginnings (voice acting [announcer]), Cry of Fear (creator of the custom campaign "The Hole").

Mod Review on Jun 6th, 2013

This mod would certainly have been incredible if it was finished. For the tiny size of the prologue the quality was outstanding.

Mod Review on Jun 6th, 2013

The atmosphere is great, and the puzzles are fun. That's was pretty fun.

But there are a lot of things that you could do to make this better. You see, there were so many bugs that I didn't really have the patience to not cheat.

Some places with silence could really use a soundscape.

The scales of textures caused lighting to be seen behind some walls.

One of the level transitions didn't work so I had to load the next map and give myself the crowbar and suit.

And as I was noclipping through something I think I saw a skybox box around your maps. Really? If you have leaks, just patch them up, use nodraw on faces that won't be seen, and it will help you a lot.

This mod was okay. The mapping was decent, in terms of scaling, textures, and details at least. It had some good action although some parts felt unbalanced. There was no explanation of anything. There was little direction of where to go next because the lighting always focused on insignificant parts and left important details in the dark. There was no default key to equip the gravity gun. The vents were way overused. Or maybe I'm just desensitized to HL2 mods now...

It is almost exactly like the old mod except with better graphics, but they were stunning graphics.

I got it with the HIB8. The game is maybe 2 hours long at max if you walk slowly.

I think the original price of $10 is way too high. This is more like a really fancy, empty movie. I wouldn't go to the theaters for that price if this was a movie.

Dangerous World is definitely my favorite mod that takes place in the HL2 world. It is stunning from the mapping, to the story, the music, the battles, and the effects. The ending was incredible and explained some things that that connected episode 1 to episode 2. 10/10 for this amazing piece of art.

It was ok. It was not very long, the story was kind of generic, mapping was fine, the fighting was super easy. Still, it was fairly fun to play.

This review may contain spoilers

The music blares, the combine come in packs of hundreds, the rockets fly, the colors dazzle, the antlions come from nowhere, and you fall through the floor into a pool of water again and again and again.

This mod is so bad that it's good.

Game Review on May 20th, 2013

I got this with the Humble Indie Bundle V and had no idea how amazing it was until I got into playing it.

An incredible story set in an unique environment and bursting was creativity in every corner. This is a game that doesn't slow down.

As for the gameplay, though, it was nice to have many weapons to vary the battling, but still the customization is way too advanced for the length of the game. I maybe only used 3-5% of all the available tools during my first time playing through. Some creatures like that dragon that popped up under you were annoying and hard to defeat.

But all together this was an amazing piece of art that immersed my senses in its tale, including emotionally.

Set in the HL2 universe, this is a typical combine killer mod. It is pretty difficult in some places.

Generic mapping, although pretty good, hoards of non-stop enemies, not much of a story, no good puzzles, but still fun enough.

Map design: Excellent
Voices and humor: Excellent
Use of custom content: Excellent, even though there wasn't too much new. It was good that the original Portal feel was kept.
Difficulty: Hard/Expert

It was so tempting to find spoilers for some of the puzzles, but I managed to do them all without cheating. It took forever. I almost never do that for puzzle games/mods but this was well made and it was worth it.

I normally don't give 10 to puzzle-only mods but I honestly can't find any reason to complain about this. :/
