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.

Great mod set in the HL universe, the new enemies (of which there are a more than a few), controlable man-hacks and drivble combine APC! :D

All great stuff, the levels and puzzles are well designed and I encounterd NO glitches of any kind through the entire play through.

About the only thing that doesnt work for me is the story.
How and why we are playing for the combine and what lead up to this point are all left way to late in my opinion and what little we get until the end ment I didn't gel with the characters until very late (when they are unsuilting one another :D ).

There seams so much more depth to the story and it was brushed over.

However the progress can be een in "Water" which is much stronger story wise.

All in all still well worth playing through.

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.
