A scientist receives a letter from a colleague but their plans are adverted when the plane's engines fail, stranding our protagonist in the wilds of the jungle. Will you survive?
Was very dissapointed with this mod. It won an award for best CS so I was very looking forward to palying it. Unfortunatley there was nothing special about it and was only a little suspensful. The brute at the end was also very boring and was just in the way
+Variety of levels
-Not enough scares
-Although there was different levels a lot of them were pointless
-Monsters were really easy to avoid
All in all this desrves a 6/10
This was a well developed custom story, but I have to knock off some points for the bad voice acting. Other than Gordon, the other two voice actors wren't that great. The male voice actor was very monotone, and the female voice actor was obviously having some troubles reading the script, as well as having mic issues. Adding voice acting into your story can really set it above the others, but bad voice acting can annoy the player and take away from the atmosphere of the story. You have to make sure your voice actors can display the feel of the story through their voice. After seeing screenshots for "The Phanter", I was kind of let down that I didn't actually see the character during the play through at all. Excluding the things listed above, the story was very original and well made. I often found myself running out of oil, but then finding oil within the minute or so, the item placement was very well thought out.
Developer feedback: I would shorten the section where you see the pile of bones, and then you are stuck in a loop. I only had to run around it once to realize I was in a loop, then was completely bored while running around the loop waiting for something to trigger and set me back into the playable game. I would also play more on the spores. I feel like they are a good idea that you could have implemented into more scenes instead of just that one.
Alright, so heres the thing. This was a fairly well done custom story, it had a great atmosphere and I felt really into it. But! There was A lot of cons about this story. Now im not really one to put this out loud and i dont do this often, i am just suggesting this. Heres the list
1: Voice acting: The voice acting was no offence but, terrible. I was seeing (SPOILER) Blood on the floors in some rooms, and when your character halucinates, The Kid who was voice acting was LAUGHING while he was doing the talking. And while he was giggling he was talking about murdering and satanic acts which went with the story. I, and some others do not see how this is funny.
2: Goes off topic: (SPOILER!) This story was talking about how a certian chemical was needed to cure a disease (Forgot what it was) but after the plane crashes and you continue through the story, it doesnt have anything to do with finding the chemical, its just monsters and blood and demons, which does not make sense.
Last but not least, 3: The ending: The ending STILL Did not possess the chemical you were searching for, you could at least have wrapped it up with something good, other than breaking out.
As i said i am not discriminating this custom story, it was worth the time and was fun and scary, and I dont mean to sound full of hate. Im just informing for if you make any other custom story..Please take these into reference notes.
