This mod was great. The update gave it so much personality. The beginning scene where you are stuck in the combine is reminiscent of half life 1 where you ride the tram and such. Only in HL1 you are riding towards disaster unknown, where in Joutomaa you are seemingly already captured and heading toward impending doom. It almost seems satirical to me, or maybe I'm just trying to be too smart. Either way I enjoyed this mod from beginning to end. I just wish there had been more that made the Filip Valkas character seem unique. I felt like he might as well have been called Gordon Freeman, because the scenes involving where filip meets resistance members seems a bit too much like the scenes in HL2. For example, right before you have to travel into the green radioactive sludge areas where headcrabs come from underground and zombies attack you, or when you have to get on the hovercraft. Only taking 1 pt off for that though. I really liked the new Gman voice, and am glad the voice from the game wasn't just reused. I think the new voice is a great alternative to the original.
Overall, a must download.
