Half-Life 2: Retaliation is a singleplayer Half-Life 2: Episode Two modification. It brings you into the familiar world of Half-Life 2 just as the antlion invasion of Nova Prospekt takes place. You step into the shoes of a notorious Rebel soldier who has been held captive in Nova Prospekt for months. During the invasion, he escapes his prison cell and goes on a long and violent mission to retaliate against the Combine, and aid the Resistance in the revolution. Travel through brand-new areas in Nova Prospekt, fight your way through three never-before-seen locations in the Half-Life 2 universe, witness the beginning of The Uprising, and ultimately carry out your retaliation.

First, we have some more music. Yes I know, it seems as though EVERY news post has more music tracks in it. Well, the truth is, they all do! Deal with it :P Enjoy the new music that is part of the Half-Life 2: Retaliation soundtrack, but please note: This is from the official movie score "Constantine" and was composed by Brian Tyler. We take no credit for the music. We just renamed the songs for our soundtrack for appropriate reasons.

Second, we like to remind all of you that we do have a:

Not only is your comment uneducated and very similar to a dumb trolling try, also, even if you don't want to sound like a troll, you are denying one simple fact:
Half-Life Soundtrack, would HL and HL2 be the same without music?
Think about it.

I don't troll you, I never said that your mod ****, but it could be much better. Music is good, but you level design is not quite good, so make it better and stop call me troll, I hate it. Sorry me, If you see trolling in my posts,It was not my purpose.

We would appreciate it if you would KINDLY offer criticism and constructive comments, rather then pointing out flaws. We are doing what we can, but we need you to at least have some respect.

He's not a troll he's just blunt. It would be better if everyone who offered criticism would also suggest a way to improve, but a lot of 'em here dont.

I think what he says in not so many words is that from the screenshots, all of your larger areas are just big rectangles with some stuff thrown in. That will bore players after a while. I know big warehouses are usually just recatangles too, but as I said, it gets boring.

What Modders usually want to do is make each level stick in the player's mind after they are done, to make a mark. After a while, all of the big box rooms will just blend together and in the end they wont remember anything but box after box with hard battles in them.

I know your Mod is still in the early stages and we have yet to see a lot. The mapping doesnt neccesarily need to get better, it just needs to get different.
