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?

Fantastic Mod! You guys should make a Nightmare House 3! You did so great on NH2! =D

I wasn't expecting much when I first installed this game, just a quick source level buzz seemed to be my only motive of playing this mod. Little did I know there was more to it in every way. Right-Off-the-Bat, it is easy to see the amount of quality that was put into this game. If you happen to own the second episode of the Half-Life 2 series, you should be ashamed of yourself if you have never played through this game...I mean mod!

Awesome game,I think everyone should play it at least once

This game is essentially "what would happen if we took F.E.A.R. and boiled off all the SWAT nonsense?". Well, Nightmare house 2 is what you get. And lordy, what a competantly put together mod it is!

Scared the crap out of me at certain parts!! Great game overall, the only thing I found to be lacking was the voices. They werent quite there in expressing emotion. Other than that great game play, puzzles, etc. Length was decent, recommended to all my friends who play half life games.

I had been hotly anticipating the steam-pipe compatible version of this mod (since I heard nothing but good reception about this mod, plus I couldn't run the game before). I liked the lighting, animations, character models, etc. I also like how the mod has these little nods to other horror shooter games (such as F.E.A.R: First Encounter Assault Recon). Overall this game is top notch by the standards of mods. It's definitely worth a look, and since HL2 is no longer required to run the mod, there is no excuse for not trying it out.

Nightmare House 2 video review:

Nightmare House 2 is a masterpiece of a mod and must be played by both Half-Life fans and horror fans alike.

Everything in this mod is thought out 100% from pacing, atmosphere, progression, gameplay and so on. The mod itself is stable, runs well on most machines and looks great visually and aesthetically

As a horror game it excels in everything and most of the things done in this mod are done at the professional level.

Did I forget to mention that they took an already amazing mod and made it even better with the 2015 update? Go play it and see the great changes made!


light is all messed up, too bright/dark to even see. won't change rating til someone fixes this cuz right now it's unplayable... ;D

For unique horror experiences, NH2 is one of the highest recommendations.

Some say it has common horror themes in it or is obviously influenced by Fear, but lets not forget these themes weren't that original when done before, and are common horror ones that get repeated down the years. It's all in the execution- and the way NH2 executes its ideas is incredible.
It has so many original approaches in it with different ways to scare you- so full of ideas- it always keeps you guessing.
It has FPS elements but many of the things that are scariest are ones you can't shoot. It's made with real polish -a really atmospheric experience.

It's highly recommended for lovers of immersive horror games !
