Paranoia - it is a our single-player modification for Half-life. You will play the role of a russian officer of the secret service. Your first impressions are that this mission will be just like any other, but you really have no idea what nightmares future events have in store for you...

PARANOIA is a mod developed by Paranoia Team (now known as KP Studios). It features alright gameplay, creepy monsters, neat mechanics, good sound design (except on the guns), and good level design. The story is also good, presented in mainly written logs you find scattered around each level.

PARANOIA was a pretty good mod. I enjoyed it, but it had it's fair share of problems. My main one were the guns. The guns just didn't sound powerful. One or two of them do, but the shotgun sounds like a ******* BB gun compared to something like the RPK.

Overall, it's a nice short experience. Paranoia 2 you could probably pass up though. Please pass it up.

I played this game a long time ago and forgot to rate it, this game is really well done, good graphic that pushes goldsource to his edge and a terrifying atmosphere!
Probably gonna re-play it these days :)

An incredible atmosphere, Tons of upgrades from the original half-life's lightning, textures and AI systems. Challenging and interesting gameplay.
Cons are: often crashes, too short, the low quality of the recorded voices can sometimes break inmersion.

Boring slow intro and tutorial level and then the game locked up on me. Restarted and I soldiered on and found that with the gun model and helmet positions on screen looked kind of wrong. Well it felt that my character had a barrel over there head and shoulders riot shield size instead of a mere helmet which was what it was supposed to be. That was kind of really super immersion breaking. That made the FOV awful plus the brighter lighting through the opaque visor made everything look crappier.

"Paranoia" is a good mod, especially it is standalone, is awesome.

The Pros:
-Awesome graphics.
-Standard Ritual Entertainment's animation for NPCs.
-Fair storyline, I love the part where Major first time face zombies.
-The gameplay effect is awesome as well.

The Cons:
-Crashes ramdonly, but nevermind at it.
-I think the Face mask is kinda of blocking, doesn't it?
-Short story, it could be much better.

I very loved this mod, it is very fun.

Great game and atmosphere.Included a few unexpected jump scares.Second time in K.R.O.T is more awesome although the AI is problematic.The game is too short and i would like more,but i guess that that's what good games do make you want more.

I love this mod. It managed to scare me especially with the ambiance and the horrific monster designs. The only real problem have with it is that it was too short.just when i was really starting to love it,it ended.Can't wait for the sequel.

Całkiem udana mieszanka FPS-u z elementami survival horroru z bardzo ładną grafiką na silniku Xash3D. Szkoda, że takie krótkie - ukończyłem grę zaledwie w jeden wieczór. Kolejnym mankamentem gry jest jej długość, choć to bardziej spowodowane jest tym, że pierwotnie była tylko modyfikacją do Half-Life'a. Nie ma tutaj co prawda takiego klimatu zaszczucia przez potwory i grozy jak na przykład w "Afraid of Monsters Director's Cut", ale fragmenty w podziemnym kompleksie miejscami potrafią nieco przyprawić o ciary, zwłaszcza kiedy mamy do czynienia z genetycznie zmodyfikowanymi żołnierzami Spetsnazu czy też wyglądającymi jak zombie nieudanymi ofiarami eksperymentów. Warstwa muzyczna jest ambientowa, czyli w chwilach walki włącza się nam ostry rock, zaś inne brzmienia w chwilach bez walki potrafią nam nieco przyspieszyć bicie serca. Ogólnie gra na plus, tylko mogłaby być odrobinę dłuższa. Bardzo polecam i liczę, że dwójka będzie co najmniej ze dwa razy dłuższa niż jedynka. Pozdrowienia dla całej ekipy tworzącej ten projekt.

The first release of this long-awaited HL1 mod in 2007 blew me away. The level detail is still stunning even seven long years later!

The models are very articulate, the sound is engaging, the atmosphere is foreboding, the action is stellar, everything about this mod speaks volumes in terms of quality for such an old engine!

Play the game release, it's one hell of a ride! :)
