Half-Life: Uplink Extended is basically a remake of the original Uplink, aka the demo version of Half-Life. It features a higher LOD, new gamecode and the actually Gargantua battle. Even though i've released the mod, i plan to add a couple more levels to "extend" the mod in the future, hence the "To be continued" message at the end...
Decent job coming from another TWHLer (The Whole Half-Life) known as Muzzleflash / The Mighty Atom. It's quite a lot of fun as he had corrected many of the weird quirks with the original demo as well as adding on some interesting new architecture plus extending the original demo with some new gameplay. The only thing that brings this mod down is the rather buggy programming with this because things seem to act up quite often in this mod, sometimes even ending with a game crash.
All in all, an eight.
A decent job but still good. I didn't like the MP5/M4 having 20 less bullets in their clip and Ammo Clips giving less bullets! But everything else is nice, many minor changes to level design, new skyboxes, you can see the Radar Dome from the crates in the warehouse! And you can finally use the High Definition Pack in Uplink! You will finally kill the Gargantua and escape in an elevator that crashes. Then you enter in a dead end and the mod abruptly ends, saying "To be continued...". I hope to see a complete version!
This is a pretty good mod. You now can play the epic boss fight with Gargantua which is cut from the original demo. The extended level is pretty good too. If Valve extended the demo, this is pretty much what it'd looks like. But, the mod is not perfect. It's still have a few minor bugs and didn't really extend the demo that much. It would be nice if this mod gets updated and extended into a much longer campaign. And when that day comes, I'll give this mod a perfect score. But until that, I'm gonna give this mod an 8.
Half Life Uplink, along with Quake 1 and 2, were the very first fps i played (then about 2 years later i played the full Half Life game)
This is an amazing remake, adding some cool new stuff to the episode, it's really worth trying. Brings me back to the old memories... :)
