One of my favorite mods ever. It's a large grunt fest, you can really feel being in a war! You start off in a Warehouse District of a City and receive a mission to assassinate the G-Man. The initial levels are a little tough but everything else is quite easy (I play on Easy: it wasn't hard for me. If you play on other difficulties it will be very hard because of the large number of Marines). You must ride a Tram to go to the mountains where G-Man's HQ is located. You can see a lovely skybox with mountains on it! It's full of well done scripted sequences, too. After assassinating the guy and destroying his laboratory you must escape
and the final part is very well done! You must fight destroying Ospreys, Alien Vessels, fighting Marines and Aliens! And you can finally escape with an Apache. Fantastic mod! It was made by one of the best mappers of all time, the creator of the rat maps used in Counter-Strike and Team Fortress Classic!

A very clever mod with an extreme diversity of battle challenges, using only original content of HL1, yet you will hardly recognize any locations, it's a really nice piece of work, and the final part is just amazing.

I see no reason this doesn't deserve a straight 10 out of 10.

The mod starts off with a simple intro that clearly lays out the plot and starts you off. The rest of the game is going through a fun and carefully built facility. Designs were good and going through the mod was highly enjoyable.

The creator even put in the extra little effort to put some personality behind the main villain and some of the allies you come across in the game. Certain parts of the mod were especially flashy and detailed and I loved every second of it.

I found no problems whatsoever with the mod apart from a single texture error that just caused a small surface to flash. This is bug free and well crafted, so kudos to you and job well done. I loved this.

It can be very difficult and at times it isn't the most balanced or well designed mod out there, but those looking for some old school fun should look no further. Edge of Darkness should have you on the Edge of your seat :)

Holy Jesus Christ was this hard. Incredibly hard. Stupidly hard. I played on the most difficult difficulty and man, this made me rage so many times. Nevertheless, it was still an enjoyable experience to play through, and the mapping was fairly decent.

A seven.
