Attend the tale of SARMA Cube - it is the grave for many noobs. In this strange Cube some gentlemen lost so they never were heard of again.... One day they all were sacrificed in SARMA Cube, the deadly complex with strange aims.

I rate this highly because it accomplished something that I think games rarely accomplish. It made me go through the emotions of someone in the situation presented.
Potential spoilers follow:
At first I was intrigued and solving the puzzles was fun, then I became frustrated and began to suspect I was not going to make it through the obstacles, then I realized the operator was going to kill me and this led me to want revenge, and finally my sense of justice was satisfied. I looked back and realized this game had been a very challenging, frustrating, exciting, and just down right fun experience.
It is a game that at times you love to hate, and in the end it brings it all together like very few games ever do. Excellent!

Прикольный мод. В меру длинный, в меру короткий. "Флэшбэки\галюны" - классная штука, именно такие "путешествия во времени" лично мне всегда нравились. Есть и некоторые недостатки типа "что делать дальше?" (приходится применять чуть ли не пиксель-хантинг =) ), "как это работает?" (например, газовый пол), "где что открылось?" или явно отсутствующий таймер в последнем испытании (как безумный искал кнопку). ...но на самом деле общей картины это не портит. С музыкой, кстати, тоже всё в порядке. Мод понравился.

Просто потрясающая игра! И атмосфера, и геймплей, и дизайн - все на высочайшем уровне. Головоломки очень интересные и разнообразные; атмосфера офигенная, но это словами не передать, надо самому почувствовать. И, наконец, понравилось читать записи Бишопа на стенах и отчеты Sarma Initiative для Aperture Science на стенах в видениях. Кстати, эти видения тоже сделаны очень круто.
Один из любимых модов, который я даже считаю теперь полноценной частью Half-Life. 10/10.

I have already given my review after beta-testing it, I won't change it even if some contents appear to have been taken from other mods. I'm not rating for some textures or sounds, I'm rating on the mod itself which I think was good enough to be comparable to the first Portal game by Valve.

This mod made me feel like playing Portal again, only with even more epicness. It is a great adventure with a variety of puzzles and an intriguing story. The quality in sound, music, models, as well as everything else, is astounding.
However, it is not without its flaws. There are still a few bugs that may become frustating, and some of the puzzles are very difficult to solve because of the lack of hints.
Overall, this was a very enjoyable experience that exceeded all of my first expectations when I began playing it.
