The story takes place in Russia at the secret plant called "Object E7" or "Black Star" at the same time as the unexpected consequences at Black Mesa. G-Man was planning to organize three incidents of portal opening originally. First one - at Black Mesa Complex. Second one - at Black Star plant. The third place is unfortunately unknown. But thanks to the fact that the cascade resonator at Black Star was out of order, the planned incident didn't take place there. Object E7 is a laboratory complex researching anomalous materials and organisms. Its academic adviser is Dr.Victor Shmurghe. He has connected directly with G-Man. The protagonist is a political prisoner who was moved from a jail to Object E7. His main purpose was to test a prototype of the new protection suit H.E.V.5000. But he could escape during usual testing by chance.
I played all mod and I just can say, that for the one-man's work it's perfect! Very interesting plot, very good mapping, great using of new prop-models and graphical effects, amazing using of HL soundtrack. And there are even placed some easter eggs and secret levels! For me it's one of the best HL singleplayer mods, and I know what I'm saying, because I played almost all of them. But this mod I played in one breath! Thanks for the author, it's a great step forward (first his mod was Dopusk31, if someone didn't know).
Мод просто охеренный: просторные большие уровни, аккуратный и логичный их дизайн, новые модели\звуки (жаль, не хватает музыки новой), здесь и пасхалки и секретные уровни, приличное время геймплея. Закрываю глаза на то, что не хватает новых диалогов (для проекта такого уровня непозволительно, чтобы весь сюжет был текстов в углу экрана", 10 из 10.
1) some locations are made by "copy-paste" method
2) mod is little bit too long (yes, this is minus for me). It could be ~30% shorter.
1) Unique athmosphere
2) It looks like more HL2 mod, rather HL1-mod ;)
3) I'm proud of our russian mappers, keep it up
I'm giving this mod 10/10, despite of minuses.
