Creatures came out of what seemed to be thin air. Animated and alive. They came without a warning and swept the world ...
This is a great mod. Good length and enjoyment. I turned off most of the additional affects u created except for alternate hud, because they were mostly annoying, a huge head bob while meleeing with knife and other weapons made me avoid melee attacks at all costs. At first i didnt like the iron sights but in the end i liked it. I ended up putting the game on easy after i got sick of needing to shoot little hound eyes a million times to kill them, which i thought was just rediculous. For these reasons i was going to give the mod 8 out of 10 but then the ending was awesome so i give it a 9 out of 10 :) i look forward to the next installment
In this mod, Team GT took the source engine we all know and love and injected it with adrenaline. Your weapons have jumping/crouching animations, you have ironsights, you can perform melee attacks with each weapon, and for what may be the first time, YOU CAN SEE YOUR FEET ON THE GROUND IF YOU LOOK DOWN. They did not spare any details, recreating even the Xen-styled environments from scratch. This mod even includes some new enemies, such as a zombie covered in tons of baby headcrabs which fly out upon his death.
The gameplay is too fantastic for words. Your companion has great voice-acting and is actually helpful. The story is good as well, being simple but effective.
As hard as it is to imagine, even this mod has its flaws. One of the only complaints I could think of is that the combat can get a bit overwhelming in some parts of the game, having to fight what seems like a platoon or two of soldiers.
Overall, though, this is a vital addition to any moddb-goer's collection.
Absolutely amazing, fits perfectly within the half-life universe, nothing is out of place and it even hints at some very interesting twists in the half-life world (I wont spoil anything) regarding the combine invasion.
The opening levels really draw you into the world and show what life is like in the time leading up to the invasion and the mod just gets better and better as you play! No spoilers but the finale are goddamn epic!
There are flaws of course, some of the combat sections drag on too long with repeated waves of enemies, there are the odd places you can get stuck, and whilst the voice acting is very good compared to most home-made games it is a bit off at times. But honestly, I don’t care; it was so damn good in every other area! It wouldn’t take a great deal of improvement to bring this mod up to the same standard as valve's Half Life games.
