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").

This mod was very enjoyable. I sometimes like non-total conversions that still use a whole lot of custom content. The textures were well made, same with the models, although some of the models were a little low-res and grainy like the player's hands. I also liked the humor, but some things like the sounds of the humans dying were a little bit ridiculous. The puzzles were creative at most points, there were only a few bugs, and I didn’t get lost in too many places. Also I really like the surreal bits as usual.

At first I was pretty skeptical about this. I never really thought zombies were all that fun, and I am usually somewhat sensitive about good having graphics in the mods I play, especially if the game is long or tedious. However, this was just amazing. The graphics were excellent even with the limits of the engine. Everything in the mod, the voices, the tape players, the graphics, the lighting, the characters, the tons of custom models, they were all top notch quality. "They Hunger" took me through a huge world with a complete and interesting story. It was an extremely long adventure with dozens of maps, providing lots of unique areas in this world to find and hunt many kinds of zombies. The map design was very non-linear, which was kind of a good thing. But some of the areas that I ran back and forth through were so large that I got lost pretty easily. But that didn't stop me at all from enjoying it. This is one of those great mods that exceeded most of my expectations right away, and it would be cool to see a Source remake.

This was a great mod. The beginning took off as the player began breaking into a very nice Combine facility. The atmosphere was perfect. The hallways were complex labyrinths. They were very Combine-ish and I got lost easily as I usually do. The ending was fantastic and almost took me by surprise because I didn’t know I was already on the robot. Overall it was very impressive for its size and age.

Wow. When I first heard it was just three maps I didn't think much of it, but this was extremely professional. I still don't know why it was only released map by map instead of chapters with smaller chunks that would be easier to play without lag.
Anyway, the design was beautiful; it was nothing short Valve quality. In fact, I was almost starting to question your sanity of why you did that so well when it could be sped past to fast, so I had to slow down and enjoy the atmosphere every few steps.
It was very varried, well paced, and creative too, including the puzzles.
Overall an excellent mod.

Much better and longer than the original one. Each monster took me by complete surprise and the story got better as I played further through. There were some parts that were very hard, such as the annoying final battle. Also, some puzzles took me a while to figure out.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to playing Grey.

This is a very interesting mod with a satisfying story for the events preceding Portal. I agree the voice acting wasn't the best and most of the test chambers were ridiculously difficult and not very rewarding. It took me half a year to find the strength to finish this mod. But the ending was nice, creative, unique, and fitting.

This mod made me feel like playing Portal again, only with even more epicness. It is a great adventure with a variety of puzzles and an intriguing story. The quality in sound, music, models, as well as everything else, is astounding.
However, it is not without its flaws. There are still a few bugs that may become frustating, and some of the puzzles are very difficult to solve because of the lack of hints.
Overall, this was a very enjoyable experience that exceeded all of my first expectations when I began playing it.

It was well designed and fun for its length.

Good points: Good mapping, interesting and unique storyline, great cutscenes.
Bad Points: Voice acting was just okay. There could have been other models for the characters because I kept getting them confused with the ones from HL2. At one point it took me forever to figure out where to go.
