The Hazardous-Course 2 is a spoof of the original "Hazard-Course" from Half-Life, which resembles the first player training levels. In contrary to this, the Hazardous-Course, as it's name let's suggest, is much more dangerous. Although it's a mod for a first person shooter, the player can only wield a weapon at the designated target range. So it plays more like an adventure. The difficulty is quite challenging, but the rewards are accordingly. The Basic Training is peppered with hidden Secrets, which reveal tools, shortcuts, control rooms, and other features, to ease almost all challenges. There are two Secret Levels and one Bonus Level to discover, and to complete to access the final part of the Hazardous-Course. Help can be found on the page in form of a FAQ and a complete walkthrough. Unfortunately these are all in german. But to be translated soon. But be aware, that these helps may spoil some surprising Easter eggs, insider gags, and a lot of the actual game play of the HC2!

Let's be honest - i am casual. I found nearly third of secrets with mine secret level and gave up - that was a night, i had to wake next day early but i wanted to see EVERYTHING very bad, and i noclip'ed rest of the secrets (with LJ section earliet). And i regret about it. Oh, how i regret about it. This mod makes want to explore the **** of it, find every single unaccessible in any meaning corner, complete any bizzare task it provides and move on. So now i am going to smash my head with a hammer to forget my experience and complete it again, all pure.
P.S. Factory section is best, imho

One of the best mods in terms of mapping. Though, I hate the water level and train section, too boring & not fun.

Today I finished this mod 100% for the first time. I had played it once, not bothering with most secrets, not getting to the end credits, but I still enjoyed it throughout.

The mod features a high difficulty that mostly stems from requiring great movement skills. This can even extend to more "advanced" techniques such as air-strafing, speed-climbing ladders and some more subtle details about the longjump. In this regard the mod, even if it isnt combat-heavy, is very challenging and rewarding for those who don't mind it.

The mapping work in this mod is absolutely amazing. Every single part had its own atmosphere, intricate design, and there were rarely any dull moments. There are also quite a few very nicely designed puzzle parts that make you think out of the box. Along with the well-designed maps there's also lots of humour in this mod. The humour is often bizarre but easily understood and it keeps your mood up very well which can help in some of those parts where one is bound to get frustrated.

As for issues in the mod there are two places in the mod I can think of where the level didnt work as intended.

1. The first is in the train-maze with the direction-switch of the rails. Even if you press the direction switch the train cant travel past the junction and stops. For anyone who has this problem I'd recommend backing the train up a little bit before the junction, press the button to switch to the direction you wish to travel towards, wait for the animation to finish, then doing a quicksave+quickload. This should let the train travel past the junction.

2. In the climbing tower there are 4 platforms one can raise. They were only able to raise about halfway for me. I don't know of any fix for this and I had to get past using noclip instead.

I think playing this mod all the way to the end-credits has been one of the best HL experiences I've had. Thank you for making such a great mod and I wouldn't mind seeing more of your work if you pick up mapping again. :D

One of the most challeging, punishing, cunning, rage-inducing and funniest mods I've got my hands on.

Lowest Rated (3 agree) 4/10

The outrageous gameplay cast a damp over the extraordinary mapping. Too bad.
