Mod Review on Aug 30th, 2015
As I played the first beta (with the last level not fully functional), I must say that I was disappointed. I won't take the bugs in consideration, but the main problem is that it was pretty lacking "life" in this recreation of Black Mesa... After the resonance cascade, you encounter 2 guards still alive and that's it. No plot, nothing, just you fleeing through BM and its creatures...
Of course, we can only acknowledge the amount of work put here to recreate another BM, but unfortunately it will suffer the comparison with BMS... Too bad for the dev's :(
I must say I have to save the cool intro in the car... and I give it a 7/10 mainly to congratulate the huge amount of work the dev's must have put in this mod, but it suffers too much for being just a big "graphic demonstration" without being entertaining for the player and also to come "after" BMS...

Honestly, I didn't bother to downvote Multi SA or JC2 multi.
But this is enough now, after the cataclysm that Areal was this year and then you, I'm just sick of oblivious cheaters and liars.
Of course you seems to not gain any money for your efforts, but the fact that your MOTY trophy hides the potential of the other worthy mod's is enough for me to spank your ***.

At first it looks cheap and shady, but it becomes more and more interesting and funny.

DRIVE put in a video game, with some David Lynch "aura", and an awesome OST.

It's a unique mod, but too much attention on details, forgetting a bit about the basics... (gameplay...)

Just finished the Gate 1, wanted to play it, before doing the 2nd...
Well, it was a cool adventure IMHO, I really liked the setting and the story, even if it's the kind "so bad it's good", I mean that whole story with agent X (why that guy from the future send us to destroy bunkers, anyways, in exchange for help?? I really thought he would turn as a bad guy in the end) was cheesy, I don't mind the voice acting but overall it was very funny (but not voluntary, you know). The ending was very satisfying, however. Killing THAT guy and then that ship going boom, and also a good cliffhanger.
About the difficulty... Well, it was truly horrible, every fight turned as die and retry battles, the enemies were overcheated as hell, they could take one grenade and one rocket and still stand, for god sake. There is even one point where, without any ammo for the sniper rifle, I had to cheat, to kill one turret shooting me from a high point. But even if it was very hard, in the end I managed to survive 99% of them, and never really getting so much frustrated (I've survived so much crap in other mods before...)
In the end, Gate1 was a good mod, a good TC, very entertaining, sometimes very frustrating. Overall, in one word, it was a little hermetic for the average player.
Looking for part 2 now.

Kinda like an "Episode 3" (one mission : kill da ******' Advisor!!) in HL2 Ep2 map's, with a gameplay twisting all your favorite figures of the HL2verse (Mines, Antlions, Zombies, Combine, Magnusson Bombs, Sniper... everyone is here!!!) with really nice Muscle Car sequences...
Really, really great. And the map' are so beautiful.

Firt part is pure ambiance, second part has some nice puzzles, especially the one around the pool (damn you), and the third part is pure action against some Black Ops.
Pretty fun, but the ending is rather "meh", I hope there will be a third part.
