2011 release renamed to: G STRING BETA. The Dec. 19 2011 release is now referred to as a beta release- read the mod's "news" to see why. Download the beta in the mod's "downloads" section.
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 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.
The mod is not so great, it is very, very open and the atmosphere is incredible. However it is hard to figure out where you should be going most of the time and objects will get in the way for you a lot. Trying to climb some obstacles or figure out how to get to the next area can be a real frustration and mood killer. Also combat isn't the much enjoyable, (Personally I feel that Half Life 2 itself had some ok combat but ultimately just bland) sometimes I will be taking shots from someone who I have trouble finding and only realize before it is to late. I don't think that this is worth the download because of all of it flaws, however it does have amazing atmosphere and I really like how big and open the world is, I just wish there was a little more direction in where it is you should be going.
The only flaw in this game is that there seems to be no instructions that would be necessary in certain parts. I wouldn't know to paddle across that toxic water on wooden board without jumping in dieing a few times and straight up guessing. However this game was a great experience and you should be praised for your efforts. Probably the best mapping I have seen in a source mod.
Horrible map designing spoils whole mod. Seems like amateur work, a hammer user who just thinks that looks is all.
Yes for post-apocalypse scene it fits perfectly, but there is just so many flaws ex. ( hard movement, get stuck every 20 seconds, no instructions where to go had to use noclip many many times)
I appreciate the effort that the developer has given to this mod, but the playability is still far below average for me.
You just cant mash up post apocalyptic scene whitout proper playtesting and put those here and there and make it really messy looking (what was made on purpouse) and then give NO directions at all to player. As map maker you just suppose that people can find those hidden ladders and paths that you need to take but it really isnt that simple. I missed many times couple ladders and had to engage noclip just to find the place and ladders that led to it.
Core gameplay is pretty basic. Didnt get the fireballs at all, they dont seem to have any purpouse on the game.
Again visuals vere great, some effects were little confusing ex. the fireball sprite that made so big cloud everytime u used it. The map desing just broke it for me. Didnt finish it played 6 maps.
this mod is most likely to **** me off, I got stuck at the beginning, I wandered in the apartment for 20 minutes with no clue what to do(who the fxxk would have thought the key card is out side the window, I had to watch a walkthrough to know where it is.), this mod is completely lack of level design and very bad voice acting(I cant tell what are those people are saying most of the time), so yeah, I could have rate this 1/10.
