Imagine, a Hollywood producer got his hands on the game. The result would be similar to what the Cinematic Mod is: a graphics blockbuster, redesigned to the typical game to movie adaption with an orchestral soundtrack and beautiful people everywhere.

This ought to be renamed "Fakefactory's Pornographic Mod" because that is exactly what this is. The dirty 40something year old man who made this seems to have a peculiar obsession with Alyx and Adriana Lima, as with every iteration of this mod Alyx is turned even sluttier than in the previous version, and is guaranteed to have the face of Lima to complete the sluttiness. And not only was Alyx affected, Mossman and the female citizens/rebels also were "enhanced" by Fakefactory's definition. They have all been turned into some kind of street tramps. Basically, all of the women in this mod look like they were designed by a socially awkward 14 year old with a hormone-infested mind. And the male characters don't look much better either. They all had ****** "enhancements" that make them all look extremely out of place with the Half-Life 2 universe, and some of them look completely retarded. Also, this mod adds ironsights, possibly to cater to the COD fanboys who don't turn away from HL2 the second they see it. Why don't more people realize that ironsights are cliche as **** and done to death? Basically the only redeeming value of this mod is that the mapping is very well-done, and it must have taken a while to get the maps back in working condition after decompiling them; but even then, the god awful character models in the "full experience" completely nullify anything good that this mod has to offer.

Convert Half-life 2 intro a Movie in 3D

PD: I recomend to play black mesa source, after play HL2 with cinematic mod and enyoy the HD experience, if you dont want HD models put the old ones.

Just great. The mods to characters won't be to everybody's taste, but as for the graphics quality, it doesn't get much better because there is no competition.

Some of the character models are very... odd and disproportionate to say the least. However, the extra detail put into not only the textures but also the environment is definitely very impressive and worth a second playthrough of the HL games.

Best Half Life 2 + Episodes Remake that ever be made. The newer version you get- the more props, textures, locations, eye-candy landscapes you will see. Level of details is colossal, some locations just look like takes from movie! Background level design is pushed to limit, bridges, ships, planes wrecks, large buildings, factories, trees and mountains- and even more! Some new locations, every location is evidently changed! Every weapon/character models are changed! Optional new models, effects, tweaks and music. Mod need very good PC. Its sometimes crashes and lags or shutter. But Source Engine is not ready for epic mod like this. I'll give 10/10 because it deserves more, and i have to up the general rating -people with single core processor and weak graphics cards downs the rate. Don't rate it if you have weak PC- its a mod that pushes to limit not only Source Engine, but also your PC. Beautiful for eye, nice for play.

Wow. Just, wow. This is Half-Life the way it should have been. Extremely high quality, brings the series up to graphics standards I bet you never through the Source engine could deliver.

Oh and BTW, I've already commented on this, but I don't want to hear your ******** complaining; if you don't like the music, or the models, or the fact that there aren't enough models, or whatever the fock else then don't download it and don't waste your time bitching about it. Seriously, once you've produced something better then, and only then will you have the right to coplain. Until then the mod is not only FREE but optional, so STFU. Thank you and have a nice day!

Damn man! With that mod old game like HL2 looks better than most of nowdays one. I know it need many PC power but that not a problem. ;)

Damn, I bought few days ago HL2 to play that mod!

Just one thing - I would recommend you to change some citizens sweaters textures. They only one thing that doesn't fit.

But still 10/10. :)

if only it's a graphic enhancement mod it would be great. visual enhancements are really great. some times you feel like you are playing a next-gen hl game. but gameplay and map changes hinders this mod from being great. also it takes almost 50 GB of your hard drive after installation! so you'll need a big space for this. also those pornographic visuals on the walls are disgusting and definitely doesn't fit in half-life universe. I'm not gonna complain about those infamous hd models because they are optional now. you can choose originals. if those downsides are okay for you, try it. otherwise don't bother downloading and installing it. you can just look at the scrrenshots.

This mod is proof that games can be art!!! HL2 was a great game that made ripples in games entertainment. This mod brings the atmosphere of Half-life 2 to life. Everything feels so grey yet very much alive! Each character loos beautiful, every gun fight feels like it could be your last, every citizen who helps you on your quest, reminds you of the bleak future the combine have brought upon humanity and highlights the weight Gordan carries.

The new visual customization makes for a unique experiences that most remakes do not offer! The level of love and professional craftsmanship that has gone into this mod is seen in every beam of light breaking in through the walls and shining through the skylight. Every speck of dirt that stains the HEV suits visor. Every spark and flash as bullets fly to their targets. Out standing 10/10!!
