It's a decent mod. The two major things that bring this game down are voice acting and the Half Life 2 zombie models. Though I'm pretty sure that this game isn't completely done yet so you could easily replace those models. The voice acting, however, needs improvement. I just can't take whatever story being told seriously when the voice acting sounds so hammy. This is still a good mod, but they just need to fix these problems if they really want it to be great
So, I finished it. (Act 1 of course)
It's a big deception.
The first map was really cool, with a nice ambiance. After we are inside. And a lot of inside are empty, square, hl1-like, it's ugly. You need to add more details, more logical issues. You played very well with the env_projected_texture and lighting, but it's not enough. There is potential but no application.
The second thing is the gameplay. Boring. Even if you tried to do something good, the fight are slow, without any interest. Try to make them more dynamic, with better effect and sensation of firing (particles !)
The third is the history, no originality for the moment. Let wait to see.
You've added so many really nice shaders which you have exclusivity but they are not at there best rendering.
HTML/CSS menu are really nice ! I'm really happy to see them.
I'm sorry to give you only a 6, I like the intention, motivation and application but the final result isn't the best.
I hope you read this review and change a lot of thing !
I'm happy to play HL2 Mod, but I really like enjoy them.
