Anybody else notice the horribad texture to the left of the master chief on the 6th picture? Jeebus, looks like that thing came straight out of Marathon.

Unfortunately I had a bad experience with this game =(. The first day I DLed it, I couldn't connect to any servers, had to delete client registry .blob or something like that, then, the servers had very few people with a good ping (from Canada)... So to be honest, I didn't experience the full potential of this mod =(... Anyone can tell me a brief explaination of what is the difference between this and Neotokyo for example? Thanks

It plays kinda like Crysis's multiplayer except without the armor modes and it doesn't suck.

I am very sorry to hear about the first impression you had.

Rest assured, we believe that Beta 1.2 can remedy this for you :)

We will have ten servers up provided by us, and more to come - as well as any that the fans throw up.. I already know a few who are going to.

I don't really think you can compare NeoTokyo and Orion - very different games. NeoTokyo is a slower paced game, with more restricted player movement. There is a good element of required team work to get things done, which also transfers over to Orion. However, Orion is a very fast paced game that enforces team work to complete the objective. It has weapon mechanics that were inspired by the original Counter-Strike (was a hardcore gamer wayy back in the day when it was still in betas), and some of the coolest maps.

You can read more about what to expect from Beta 1.2 from HalfLife2.net's hands-on preview that is going live tonight on their website!

If such a mod fail, a part from Moddb would die, absolutely awesome.
And for those who call it halo or something, Go F*** the Master Chief :o
