Half-Life 2: Short Stories is a team working on a group of modifications that take place in the same realm. A lot of the focus is on the story and gameplay, new innovative set pieces and puzzles. After the release of the first episode of Human Error, the team is planning to release more episodes and expand the characters and the world.

I did NOT expect to be a CP. Great story line, althought the CP's faces are stretched, everything is fine.

10/10 mod! Innovative weapon system, excellent level design, Usable APC and Manhacks, extremely funny dialogue, great weapons, and working alien controllers and grunts! It has a strong plot, believable characters, and a offers a new point of view of the Half-Life universe. It also gives a believable reason for the protagonist being forced to take on the entire invasion by himself; which I won't spoil. The main character isn't simply a faceless, voiceless, emotionless stoic; he's still voice and faceless, but from his actions and what he sees, you can tell he's suffering from his past choices. This mod is all around wonderful, and a must-download! That said, there are still some minor flaws. For example, the models for your 3 Civil Protection colleagues and your....spectral friend seem a slightly lacking, but not enough to warrant point deduction; and the voice acting is a little iffy at times. It's also a bit on the short side, but with so many new features, that's understandable. With the Source engine update ruining most mods, it took its toll on this one too. Some of the mechanics are broken, but no point deductions because that isn't the mod's fault. Overall, this mod is truly one of the greater ones released, and I look forward to further installments.

Cons:
-Some custom textures (Mainly on NPC's) seems to be dirty, not cut well, or phonged strangely (I prefer not too much phong-mapping, so that's my opinion)
-Some of the maps very pretty clustered with items, badly spaced
Pros:
+Original gamemodes and storyline.
+For the most part, very well made maps.
+Quite balanced gameplay with a good feel to it.

wow were do i start, hmm ill just start iwth the bad things about this mod cause id be typing too long if i listed the good things, the weapon slots can only hold thing is annoying and u should be able to take battery from your stun stick back to your suit. THATS IT. this mod is heavy on story and one of the few mods that was released that lets u play as a cp. the ghostly appearances of your dead girlfriend are weard and unique, plus the apc part was awesome, im sick of working 4 the rebels.
GOOD WORK GUYS hope to see a sequel. you guys should make one that takes place during the renosance cascade at black mesa, just an idea, but a good high quality mod, nice work!
