You play as Thomas Redgrave. A scientist working in Area3 Research labs. The story is parallel with the events in Black Mesa, the same day when Gordon Freeman and Scientists in Sector C started the whole event. INSTALLATION: You need to have HALF-LIFE installed on your STEAM (original half-life, no half-life:source or Half-life2). Run it at least one time. Install BraveBrain v1.1 to your STEAM/steamapps/common/Half-life directory and restart STEAM.
I must start out saying that this mod did a good job at returning to areas. I even loved the one vehicle part. Really was a killer. Otherwise, this mod is just okay. Pros and cons:
-cool returning areas
-awesome vehicle scene
-nice ax model
-some fun areas
-and overall a clever idea for a mod.
-clunky level design in places
-way too easy battles
-way too predictable puzzles
-awkward texture choices in places
-foolish voice acting
-and overall Brave Brain gets an average 7/10. It really was a disappointment for me and I really was expecting much more from this mod. But at least it does have its moments of awesomeness.;)
Highest Rated (5 agree) 8/10
Every mod has its level design leave a flavor particular to its designers tastes. This one is alot like valve's Black Mesa, theres even 2 areas where you get to revisit. The beginning was a little on the hard side as you had to deal with aliens with a axe. And it stays that way for a little while before you finally find a ammo room which makes alot of sense to me. Most mods give you guns straight away with the crowbar and I've never thought that realistic, weapons and ammo should be in storage or…
