My review:

The first part of the mod in the Xen universe is a masterpiece regarding the staged war between Xen creatures and humans that entered their home world to do research. The middle part was still cool I guess but the farther you progress in this mod, the less frequent the really interesting parts of playing an Alien creature are being provided.

Fighting alongside other Xen creatures i.e., maybe having a little Vortigaunt squad to follow you or set some creatures in the laboratory free to support you on your quest. Maybe make Xen weaponry like these frog grenades more frequent or at least more efficient if that rare.

While the maps and theme of the game were still interesting in the late-game, it just wasn't as interesting to me to just be a Vortigaunt. It's just like with many HL2 Combine mods. Just playing a Combine and fighting Zombies/Antlions or Rebels isn't really interesting. For the love of god, give me a lot of different Combine toys to play around with. Let me fight alongside other Combine and go into a war against the Rebels. Let me place turrest and mines, drive APC's, have helicopter and Strider support, activate Combine energy barriers, etc. etc. - you name it.

That's my main criticism with this mod. Imo the Xen/Vortigaunt theme should've been established more defined. And (SPOILER) the last part of the game where even your Xen allies fight you should've been a f*cking lot shorter than it is. Everyone trying to kill me is the least interesting video game theme I can imagine.

Rating: 7/10

But to be fair:
Xen part = 9/10
Certain short parts of earth = 8/10

How is 9/10 and 8/10 = 7/10 overall? Shouldn't it be 8.5/10 then?

Well, the build up is great and all. But if the game tends to get boring midway and especially endgame I just can't rate it as overall good. Because Xen is fairly short in contrast to the whole mod and the good moments on earth are rather sporadic and even shorter. So that's why the 7/10.

What a fantastic mod. It is so professionally done, you'd believe Valve themselves made it. Easily one of the best Half-Life mods I have ever played. It has everything necessary to make a good Half-Life mod: A good plot, some excellent new features, new weapons (creatures), plenty of action around each corner and loads of twists and turns in the story. There is really very little you can fault about this mod as it's near perfection; I also liked the new thought-log feature, I'm surprised it wasn't…
