In Nightmare House 2 you wake up inside an abandoned hospital with no understanding of how you came to be there, only a vague memory of the girl from Nightmare House haunts you. Soon it will be difficult to determine between a dream and reality. How long will it take you to realize that escape is not an option?

Awesome nightmare feeling! Better than FEAR or other horror shooter. One of the best, or the best mod in 2010.

This review may contain spoilers

Gameplay: 9/10, The gameplay is good and well balanced. It ties in well with the story and the first half of the game is certain pants ******** material. Some bits are repetitive but just when you think thats all you have to offer something new pops up. The placement of weapons makes sense and so do the puzzel sequences. Also the action sequences in the second half of the game really gets your blood pumping. The mod does however lose points for doing the most repeated thing in a horror game which is you get seperated from the swat squad and have to find your way around without them for a level and the further on where you need to go around and unlock a door from the other side by going through a vent but then for the next 3-4 doors they just shoot the lock open with the shotgun! I think i speak for everyone who played this game when I said why couldn't they have shot that door down?

Story: 9.5/10, The story is very well balanced with action and horror and has mostly belevible characters who actually help you! It was indeed a very scary experience and I like how the story changes after the twist, although it does detract from the overall scaryness but it was worth it in my opinion. The mood was set well with audio and lighting and those manicans gave me nightmares for real definatley the most scary component. I do however feel slightly let down by both endings as it doesn't finish the story at all and leaves the player going what next? I also think you could have alaborated more on the manicans mabey having them spawn in that final sequence and have the lights shut on and off with them apearing closer and closer each time and then dissapearing.

Overall: 9/10 obviously taking inspiration from FEAR and other horror games Nightmare house 2 is a scary but sometimes anoying game. For the most part though it was an extreemly enjoyable mod and it is glad to see a hl2 mod get finished as it is a rare sight theses days. All i can say is i recomend this mod and more manicans

This game was the most amazing source mod I have ever played. It has an immersive story that's revealed as you play, and great player-NPC interaction.

NH2 is a great mod that has good story, frightening enemies and jaw-dropping cut scenes the only problem is that Dr.Romero sounds like an idiot but this is a must play :)
