The Minerva series, and Someplace Else, are one of the best executed mods I have ever played. The level design of Minerva is spot on and the gameplay very fluid. The mysterious story also kept me playing. If you are going to play a HL2 mod, this one should be high on your list!

One of the best mods around. The maps and their architecture are top notch, gameplay is stellar, story was simple, yet sucks you in quickly. The simplicity of it was the main reason why it worked so well. All acts felt suspenful and very opressing, the atmosphere was isolating and cold.
This mod is an absolute classic. By the way, this mod has most amazing OST I have heard in a mod. Maps looks great and well polished, gameplay is sellar, story and the mood are just right. If you've haven't played it yet, I say, you're missing a lot

Best HL2 baset mod ever made! By HL2 baset I mean that the mod follow or is close to what the game HL2 looks like.

It is by far the greatest single player Half-Life mod to date. Adam Foster has made a mod that is up to Valve quality. If for some reason you haven't played this mod yet, then drop whatever you're doing and play this beautiful mod right now.

A truly well thought out and well executed mod for Half-Life 2. Giving the player a rich experience both through the the gameplay and the story told. It is no wonder that Valve recognized the talent of Adam Foster, since it is very well apparent in this excellent mod.

Nothing short of excellent. Could very well qualify as a Half Life 2 expansion

Great mod. Maybe even the greatest. The "scornful control figure" managed to get on my nerves, but that solved itself... eventually. I really look forward to see Minerva's designer imprint on episode 3....

Superb level design, intriguing story, perfectly paced. Can you ask for more?
In the surface it may seem as Half Life 2 with just a different setting and story, but once you start the game you notice you're wrong. This is a flawless mod and should be played by any Half Life fan.

If you have Half Life 2 and Episode One, download this, it's free!
If you don't, buy them! This mod is worth it, and you would get two awesome games in the process.
