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
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.
