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!
Hard and somewhat hard to follow, HC2 is a much greater challenge then the original training could even dream of possessing, and will have you test all your half-life skills.
At times, it feels like trial-and-error, and some of the puzzles infuriatingly complex, but this is still an incredible challenge to take, even on easy, and those looking to get their brains tested and their ***** kicked will feel right at home with HC2 :)
This was one of the best mods I've played yet. I'm still not even finished playing it. I can see myself playing through this mod a hundred times. The mapping is excellent and the gameplay is fantastic. Sometimes it can be confusing, but it's still fun as hell. I'd recommend this to anybody that likes a challenge. I've gotten quite a bit of headaches from it, but it's all in good fun. c: This is one fine example of a mod I would without doubt rate a 10/10. He also threw in the source files under the downloads section, which is pretty amazing. You can learn a lot of stuff by checking out the RMF files. Great job!
I was completely taken aback the sheer amount of quality content that was jammed into this mod. The 'main game' was fun and challenging, the secrets were plentiful and well designed and the extra content was mindblowing.
My only gripes were caused by bugs inherent to the steam version of the goldsource engine(exploding elevator bug)therefore:
This is one of the BEST HL1 mods I've ever played. You can tell that numerous hours of hard work and effort were put in this mod. It's innovative, fun, tough to beat, and even has a bit of funny humor in it. The secrets in the game are also awesome. Definitely worth a download. Get this now. 10/10
