Creatures came out of what seemed to be thin air. Animated and alive. They came without a warning and swept the world ...
Caught between an 8 and a 9.
Very well constructed game, really good characters and a very intriguing story, I absolutely loved the start and am yet to finish it. The models, environments and weapons are all really well done.
I think it's brilliant! 8/10
the demo was interesting, and for a while i didn't notice that the first large release of 1187 had come out, and it seems i was missing out, for sure. most of what's been done here, i wasn't aware source was capable of. if you thought COD, battlefield, or anything is immersive, 1187 is so much more. the firearms are done very well, everything but the enemies you're fighting is pretty realistic (since they're aliens!).
it would be very difficult to make a better single player source mod than this. there are many other good single player source mods, but this just tops the pyramid.
doing the crash course map alone shows how immersive and well done this mod is. the work to get to this point, is obviously to a good end and was worth it.
The concept is really good.
From what I understood, it is about living the time lapse between Half Life 1 and 2 through the eyes of a "normal guy".
Even though I am pretty sure this "normal guy" is in fact someone important to the story, the fact that we are an ordinary man facing extra ordinary circumstances makes this mod feel overwhelming in a similar way the movie Cloverfield might make you feel.
On the development's perspective I would say it is really good too, good weapons, level design, believable voice acting and good music.
The 3 points I have removed is not for one particular reason, but an addition of minor to medium details that could be polished and improved, as well as a general value of appreciation I have for this mod.
The different patches show that the team is really dedicated and have a passion for this project.
As far as I am concerned, this mod stands on the top 10 of Half Life 2 Story Line based Single Player mods.
Keep up the good work !
fantastic a mod seemingly about the seven hour war. the mod has interesting combat, great voice acting and an appealing plot to half-life fans. while it is a great mod and half-life fans should play it, wait for an update as even with homemade fixes valve has harmed this mod with updates like so many other mods.
p.s. STOP IT VALVE YOU ARE BREAKING EVERYTHING!!!!!
