Make your way through City 17 down into the sewers and back up to the light in this new Half Life 2 adventure. Four new maps filled with Grav Gun puzzles and intense action set peices all in the style of traditional Half Life 2 gameplay. If you miss Half Life 2 and can't wait for Episode 3 then this mod is for you.
This mod is visually too simple, there are no details and there is no ambient sound / music to make the atmosphere. There are hordes of enemies without proper ammo/weapons/health so cheats are a must here. Also in some places I felt lost and thought "what am I supposed to do here or where I have to go" so adding some visual clues would be great. However, I have seen some clever puzzle ideas. This mod felt like kinda unfinished for me so I am disappointed. 4 stars out of 10.
This mod was okay. It's about my level of mapping skills now, maybe even a little better. The puzzles were interesting but sometimes hard to figure out. Other areas looked a little devoid of detail. Anyway, I didn't feel like there was too much of a story. Do Alyx and Dog at the end relate to your next mod?
A short, but well done mod. It has some minor bugs, which don't hinder gameplay, but look a bit odd. There is no real story as such, the player is simply thrown into the puzzle-solving and enemy shooting, without any major introduction. The level design overall was very pleasant, but a bit plain in some areas.
All in all I had a lot of fun playing this one hour long mod.
+ Clever puzzles with growing difficulties and variation
+ Satisfying, yet challenging combat
+ Well done maps
(- No extra content, everything was seen before)
- There was one progress impeding bug (including a double door and zombies hugging it, preventing me from opening it)
- One fight in a sewer area involves some difficult enemies, but provides too little light to properly see them, that was a bit unfair
- Some areas in the maps are a bit plain/bland looking
The mapping was decent as was the puzzle ideas.Some things like the strider and train coul be fixed( I kept not being able to grab the ladder above the train but I give it an 8.It doesnt have any custom sounds or models(you could have added a few that would be relitive to the half life 2 universe) but its okay without them.I prefeer half life related mods and not having anything custom just sticks to the half life universe more.
