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!
Its definetly the funniest mod i played for hl. Maps are made very proffesionally and some maps have a terrfic atmosphere, in general the objects in the maps and environment is very detailed and clean. Some moments remind of scenes from funny old hollywood films like police academy,with random stuff happening all the time. There is at least one part in the game which I have to mention is boring, a labyrinth with an incredibly slow train, didn't really understand the point of that but if it was for humour as a joke that all employees have to go throguh that, I felt the 20 minute ride barely made up to it, and I was lucky to get to the end that fast by the way, there was literally hundreds of turns in nowhere. This mod also has a huge collection of secrets, around 5 dozens, but when you get to them (And i got to only like 5 % of them) generally there isn't much to do although there is a huge one in the end I won't spoil ;). This isn't a total conversion mod of course and the story line is pretty simple but the point of this mod was the humour, environment and challenging objectives and two me this mod got a 9 in the end! Definetly something worth mentioning when thinking of classic HL mods. I'm actually going to rate this mod a 10 though because there was someone who rated it an undeserved four
