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!
A pinnacle of seamless level design, secret hunting and difficult gameplay without relying at all on gunplay. I expected a 30 minute parody of the original HL Hazard Course, what I got was a 10 hour marathon of trickjumping, problem solving, sightseeing and cinematic references.
The best singleplayer mod for this game so far.
I just cant believe it's so hilarious, but along difficult. It's also funny - When you get your HEV suit and go back (not in Freeman's room, where the elevator is located), you can notice G-man falling :D
9/10 because it should have been released for HLSource too, anyways it's awesome mod!
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 :)
