cool and good!

Without subtitles, I was completely at a loss as to what was happening.

Even with subtitles, many players would find this mod... er... rather dull.

But I for one actually enjoyed the scripted events that helped tell the story of how Gordon Freeman came to Black Mesa, meeting several familiar characters along the way :)

It's not the most action packed mod ever, but those looking for some good ol' fashioned Black Mesa atmosphere and storytelling, look no further :D

I agree with perlateo:

- The running scientist. Maybe some players would find it boring, if the scientist would just walk slow like in the original intro, but i personally like it more realistic
- The Russian language. I know Russian but, scientists and Barney Calhoun talking in Russian destroys the atmosphere totally. Whole Black Mesa looks so typical American, that scientist speaking Russian seem to be from another planet.
- The translation is done very poorly. For example, after your registration you get into a train and the scientist tells you after arriving "We came". Correct would be "We arrived". "We Came" would mean, well, that they just have had sex with each other ;)

Also there are some storyline errors, for example: Rosenberg and Freeman never met each other.
In the Test labs you added a door which doesn't exist in the original game.

I wanted to meet with Alyx Vance (while she was a child) and Azian Vance (Eli's wife) :(

Generally I enjoyed this mod. 8/10

Annoying puzzle & words.

One of the most boring mods ever made for HL. While the mod is daring to be something not based on action for a game that is action based, there is some room here for success depending on the ideas put forth. The gameplay is tiresome, there is one scene where we get to do one of those barney vs gordon competition to see who get inside and unlock a scientists door (gordon naturally taking a ventilation shaft) but the story seriously does not go anywhere. We are fed small snippets and have to do boring crystal anaylsis. The mod ends without us finding out anything new about the characters and the storyline, well I don't really know what the point of it was.

my revies will say worst game till i can acuttaly play and someone tells me how to fix the monster monster_furniture thing goes away
