You have been sent alone, to a warm desert planet for a commando mission of high risk. Your goal, as an elite soldier, is to infiltrate the abandoned human complex to perform vital maintenance tasks and to recover precious scientific research facility data. From the warm desert to the depths of the complex, you will blow up everything that blocks your way, like doors or walls, but mostly aliens. You will then be extracted from the planet by a space ship !
Alright, this is better than many mods out there, but it's far from perfect. The mapping is good, and the mod is very detailed, but there are some problems that simply are very annoying.
Let's start with the view bob.The camera shakes too much, and it becomes annoying after some time, even tought that you can disable it it's very recommended to the mod author to try reduccing it because some camera shaking is good, but too much is bad
The other problem is that is very cofusing to navigate trought the mod.You can only view your objectives once and there are some parts like whem the elevator falls that I simply didn't know what I had to do.
So: the mod is good but needs improvements.Try making anoher mod fixing those problems or simply create a upddate.
Job well done!
This is a pretty decent mod but I do have a couple major gripes.
1. Too many Antlions: When you first meet them it isn't too bad because there's plenty of ammo and health items in the outpost but when you first get into the facility/laboratory it gets a bit too hectic. At one point the commander sent me a message and I couldn't read it because of these antlions running at me; I died, reloaded, read the message then died again, and reloaded then I took care of the antlions. Reduce how many there are at once or decrease how quickly they spawn.
2. Obstructions: The game, for the most part, easily conveyed what I had to do to get past an obstacle but it seemed to bug or actually didn't say what I had to do. You have to plug three wires in three outlets but two of the outlets are in another room blocked by two doors. There seemed to be no way to open the doors so I noticed some markings on the wall that showed it could be destroyed. I used the crowbar first, didn't work. Then I threw some grenades, nothing. Well then, it must be the crossbow, wrong again. So, I noclipped through the sodding wall. This same event happened again with the glass to get to the server room, I was so sure it was grenades because there's a crate of them before you go in but of course, I was wrong but thankfully Mr. Noclip came to the rescue. When I had to go through the C gate, the blasted door wouldn't open and with all the Antlions around I couldn't exactly take the time to find a way to open it. So, take a guess at how I got past this, hint: it seems to be the theme of this review, give up? I noclipped, simple as that.
Other than all that nonsense above this statement I enjoyed the mod, I especially liked the bullet time effect at the end, definitely added some urgency.
Solid mod. Not a huge fan of the puzzles which I felt just hampered the experience, but overall it was very challenging and rewarding (I played on Normal).
And yeah, I turned head bob off right away. It's under keyboard options.
Definitely worth playing.
