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").
Very simple, generic level design. No story. But a fun zombie slaughterhouse.
In summary, although the visuals are good, the gameplay leaves something to be desired.
(It is also buggy as heck but since some of those are due to the mod being old I can't blame them on the creator too much.)
The battles were very difficult even on "easy" mode. I HATE it when enemies spawn infinitely because you're expected to run somewhere rather than fight them all. It took me a while to figure out what was happening. Then I couldn't find where I was supposed to go and the map lagged from having too many soldiers/bodies. I was forced to go to skip to the next map which made the story even more confusing.
John was useless and annoying. He refused to follow the player when he should have. The dialogue scenes were insanely long and slow moving. The maps were too maze-like and I was always lost.
Since cheating was necessary I felt mostly bored while playing this.
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.
Design was good, the puzzles were okay I guess, but there was no in-game explaination of anything. The default controls were terrible. I didn't like the new music much, and it was short. I still had no idea what was going on. But it's just a demo so whatever. :/
I tried it but couldn't finish it. I got lost and frustrated too many times. It was kind of an interesting story but I didn't get into it very deeply.
I had to play this game a second time to give it a proper review and understand it a little more.
Voice acting = 10, really good.
Plot = 8, a little artsy and overly detailed for the modern gamer though.
Level design = 8, decent considering it's mostly HL2 content.
Gameplay = 2, very slow walking with flashlight.
Still, this mod feels like it would have been better as a short story/film. As a mod/game it feels out of place.
