As the old world is crumbling something new is coming into being. Many people are waking up to their true powers- their DNA changing somehow... You, Myo Hyori- an 18 year-old girl of Korean descent, are one of them.
I´m aware of the enormous work behind this mod, yet, the way it is implemented made it feel boing and sterile with many drawbacks that prevented me to enjoy it and so i quited very quickly. I know i can´t judge a 1.7gb mod by the first five minutes but sometimes the way something starts tells all about it. If i had to chose a rating for the effort, it would be 10 for sure, but here we are rating the product and not the work behind.
This is one of the best mods I have ever played.It has strong atmosphere like "dear esther". The story telling elements and the struggle through the desolate city, finding an escape or path is brilliant. I never had the feeling before that I could just walk any direction in a map to find the proper way and even if it wasn´t clear all the time where to go I had the feeling that it was just natural to find the right way. Right now I´m in the middle(?) of the mod and haven´t played any mod without crosshair so I have some trouble but on the other hand it is more realistic that way. Maybe add ironsight then I won´t need crosshair at all.
Congratulations to this mod. If you have done this all by yourself you have my respect. BTW I´m a big asian fan and love the art work and the music clips very much. Great mod 10/10! Keep up the good work!
This game is a revelation; it is the most amazingly complex environment to wander through and is quite a challenge on all levels. This version, (1.0) has an almost otherworldly electronic view of a decidedly rundown city, richly textured and festooned with graffiti and billboards. A capitalist vision turned nightmare!
You are lost in this city, but don’t worry, you are very wanted!
Massive vistas and climbing feats abound amid some very violent combat, where the lack of a crosshair makes combat hard, but not impossible. Even I have managed to get quite far!
This game has constantly delivered new and exciting imagery and sound with every new location, it’s simply amazing. In fact some of the environments are so detailed I have been forced to check the “YouTube” walkthroughs a couple of times to find an exit, when I realised I had already found it but another thing caught my eye and distracted me. I do like to wander and this is the game I have often dreamed of playing.
Now I will set about finishing it, although it has already been good enough to earn a very deserved 10/10 from me and I’m still less than halfway through!
I saw a robot with the Guy Fawkes mask from “V for Vendetta”. It was so surreal!
Well I have now finished this epic cyberpunk mod and I must say I takes me back to the day I first saw “Blade Runner” at the cinemas back in 1982. Then, as now with this mod, it blew me away with such new, interesting visuals and sound. Neon lights, rain and decay make for some magic moments in this mod. Yes I think this mod must be played, it is brilliant and thought provoking.
This is the best mod for Half Life 2 that i have ever played. The girl who made this should have gaming companies fighting over her. I played the Alpha version and it does need some fine tuning but all in all a very good Mod and very tricky puzzles. If not for the You Tube walk through i might have stopped playing but i got so addicted to this game that i had to keep on playing.
You should really be proud of yourself for this, as far as dystopian scenery and in-game atmosphere goes, you might as well have written the book. The environs live and breathe an atmosphere of oppression, desolation, and past calamity. They are fully engaging, and many times I've caught myself being distracted from the game by how much depth and detail was put into the world you've created. I only wish the gameplay matched how great this mod looks.
For the majority of the levels, it feels like you did either very little playtesting, or simply wanted it to be confusing. There were many parts where I was impeded because I missed something obvious that you placed far too inconspicuously. Another issue of note is the player characters weapon animations. The hammers animation is awful, it looks like instead of hitting with it, you just recoil with the hammer; it makes no sense at all. The psychic powers are a nice plot device, but ultimately feel largely underwhelming, as I always seemed to favor the usage of firearms every time. The plot was also hard to follow in some parts, and really left me direly wanting to know what was going on, and you need some goddamn subtitles. Seriously, your characters are really hard to hear.
In conclusion, this mod feels like you have your image in mind, but you forgot everyone else doesn't. The world you've created is just fantastic, a real joy to behold; but from the standpoint of the player, it's confusing, hard to navigate, and it's seldom clear where you're going. Both in terms of the plot, and in the level itself. Ultimately though, with a little bit of gumption and some tolerance, any player can tough through the rough patches in your mod, and hopefully enjoy all the work you put in.
