Just another try to escape from the Black Mesa. Can the nameless scientist save himself with your help?
Very well made. Gives the sense that you are just a scientist trying to survive. Some small yet welcome puzzles in this, some really tough action, and boy do they throw you into the thick of it early on, just before getting a decent weapon.
+Level design is terrif, gives for a very banged up Black Mesa, damaged panels, cracks, doors that you don't have clearance for, vents, dead guards and scientists ect
+well placed enemies and just enough ammo to be able to take on all enemies
+Medium length, a sad but rather abrupt... yet somewhat fitting ending.
This mod makes me want more, and that the creator may wish to continue this at some point.
The worst thing I can say about this is the ending. It's quite sudden and a bit sad. And watch out at the beginning. Get the pistol on the ground ASAP.
Besides that, it was challenging and enjoyable. I liked the Morse Code puzzle and just wish it was a bit longer.
Well, this was a middle mod. And the Overall felling is like there was a bundle of maps with some good-ok puzzles but the whole thing just felt too much narrowed, you know there were no big spaces at all.
Also we have a mediocre and totally disappointing end, I guess that's why is called "hopelessness", but all in all the concept feels poor in here.
You know there were some pretty annoying things in this mod. Like the very poor ammo you find and then you can really get some low, low health points just because the weapons are very few, and you can even turn on the impulse 101 cheat....
I guess this mod overall deserved a better ending though is nice to have some HL1 maps to play in this days where mod production is decreasing badly.
I really liked this mod, so I originally wanted to give it 10. And why didn't I do that? Because trying to press correct buttons on the code pad annoyed the hell out of me. Apart from this minor thing, I can only recommend it.
Would have easily given this a 10 if it weren't for two things. First, don't upload your config.cfg file with your mod. Some people may use different controls and mouse settings and it's annoying to have to reset them. Second, a couple of issues getting into some of the vents near the start, requiring you to crouch and then jump to get in. Otherwise, I loved it. I hope you continue because the ending was a bit of a downer. :P
