SCENARIO In "Get a Life" you embody Alexander Zemlinsky, a subway technician suffering from leukaemia. Alex is not, unlike the protagonists in most games, an invincible super-soldier. But you wouldn't call him normal either, because there is something in his past that connects him with the events that are about to happen in the course of the story (we want to keep the suspense, so nothing more on that...). FEATURES * GaL will run on the latest version of the Source Engine, so that means you'll see HDR and the enhanced shadow system (as seen in HL2: Episode 1) in "Get a Life" as well * To give the player the best gaming experience possible, GaL will offer a custom HUD, an innovative healing system with several damage zones, drugs that will trigger a "bullet-time" effect, upgradeable weapons and enhanced enemy AI * About 11 hours of gameplay * 24 maps with varied environments * 61 characters * 13 weapons

Half-Life 2 Mod "Get a Life" features fantastic action-packed gameplay. I think i'm going to give this mod a 9/10. I experienced few errors while playing, and sometimes I wouldn't know where to go or how to get there. If you don't like action-shooter genres, then just forget about this whole project and walk away. Otherwise, you can join the club and beat the game wanting more!

I love this mod it's realistic zombies , the soldiers wearing their awsome gasmask and suit combo. The giant spiders and the cool cops/survivors and the awsome story line. If I could give this mod a 12/10 I would do it. (plus the slowmo makes you feel like neo !)

Good job, nice mod

Super mod ! Story , Soundtrack , map , Textures ...everything are good. I love this mod !

I love it!

A wonderful total conversion very ambitious and one of the most incredible final boss fights ever seen in a mod, on par with Sweet HL Kingpin.

Very long, many RPG elements, unique enemies and textures, it is a "must play" of mods.

the modals and guns were great and the story really good

One of the better Source mods I've ever played.

One of the best mods I've ever played for Half Life 2. The story, though a little confusing at first, is seamlessly incorporated with the healthy balance of exploration, combat, and puzzle solving. Combined with custom skins, textures, sound and kick *** weapons will guarantee a rich and enjoyable experience.

As for the quality versus quantity factor, prepare to be immersed in a rich and detailed 6 to 9 hour game. The limb health feature on some occasion was a bit intrusive during hefty combat sequences but adds more purpose and meaning than just walking over a health kit and gaining 25 health. It was a bit tough and challenging in some areas and I did get lost a few times, but these occurrences were few and far between.

I highly recommend this mod to anyone, it will certainly make a nice addition to your collection.

One great piece of a mod, yes.
