The true method of knowledge is experiment. So, strapped to the underside of a stolen Combine helicopter, you're part of my latest scientific investigation. Objective: To infiltrate and observe this peculiar little island a few miles off shore, its heart burrowed out by our ever-loving benefactors...

Well-made mod, especially against most of what's created today. I had a few issues with some strange mapping and, initially, a lack of direction on the island, but the direction was all rectified once I was in the underground facility.

I love the level design don't get me wrong.Story is very importent to me and I felt that the way it started with you being stapped to a helicopter and the idea was lost on me.Everything was excellent, the design of the levels was second to none, and the way it played out, amazing but I felt there was something lacking.This is the best level design if only a few writers and voice actors would help flesh some of these amazing mods out.They lack that professional feeling but this is great level design.

Minerva is an excellent HL2 mod.
It encorperates the mystery and the syspence that is accorded to all Half-Life games; mod or otherwise.
I really enjoyed playing this mod. It was an excellent tangent to go out into. Our Benefactors have some mysterious stuff going on in iceberg-ish like islands.

Download and install this mod.
It's definitely worth it and is an excellent play.

Quick point-form review...

-High quality mapping
-Fairly long and actually complete
-Plenty of surprises keeps it interesting, solid action from start to finish

-Difficulty can be a bit high & inconsistant
-Confusingly restrictive and linear navigation sometimes detracts from the action
-Rather unimaginative storyline somewhat poorly delivered

Overall, above average quality mod definitely recommended. 9/10.

THE best Single Player Half Life 2 mod based in the Half Life 2 universe in my opinion.

Great level design, great concept, great ideas, interesting narrative elements.

And above all else, which is why I am bias with this mod...

It was made by one man, who later got hired by Valve.

An inspiration to us all and especially to me...

Best mod i've ever played!

It's going to be hard to remember that this is not related to the actual story line.

Excellent throughout. I cannot recommend this mod enough. Please, do play it. ^_^

Also, to those who comment on having HEV suit hands in this mod -- your "helper" mentions relatively early on that your suit's manufacturers were "more interested in science" than other things, such as long-distance communication. This implies that the suit is, in fact, canonically a Black Mesa Hazardous Environment suit. How it got into your hands before this mod takes place is for you to decide.
