It's 13 months after the incidents at Black Mesa. The Black Mesa Research Facility has been shut down. The nation never got to know anything about the experiments there. The less you know, the less you worry. The government founded a new organisation to handle "alien related topics". They hired the best scientists, technicians and military forces worldwide, its name is Poke646. Some days ago the Poke646 scientists spotted alarming signals from the Xen homeworld. It looks as if the aliens plan to invade Nation City by opening a massive amount of portals. But the Poke646 Tech Labs are already prepared: some months ago the technicians developed a huge generator which is able to close hundreds of portals at once with a bundled energy beam. Four generators are about to be installed at the edges of Nation City. With all four activated they will form a giant beam and hopefully destroy the alien portal technology forever. You play the role of Damien Reeves, the technical assistant...
Firstly, I have to say I gave up at the beginning of Chapter 2. Here's why:
This mod is one of these mods that focused too much on visual aspect and on an original atmoshpere, but forgot the most important thing: the gameplay.
* A "pistol" that sometimes doesn't hurt monsters
* Monsters killing you when you're stuck inside a reading terminal
* Sound: The music quite annoying, the 2 second noise looping when you're reading a terminal, the "new message" sound looping permanently driving you CRAZY
* Try-and-Die: Vortigaunt appearing all of a sudden somewhere around you in a big chamber with no place to hide sniping you, headcrabs that appear all of a sudden on your side giving you no time to avoid...
* The story, worse than Star Wars VII.
Literally one of THE BEST mods that the Half-Life Modding Community has to offer. Brilliant backstory and kickass combat sequences galore in this great mod. It offers a new character, new setting, and some new weapons at the player's disposal. If you haven't played this already, get it now! If you have played this already, it's time to give it a go again.
This is one of the greats when it comes to Half Life mods. It's a total conversion with a Universe that feels familar in a lot of ways yet fresh, this is helped by some great new weapons with pretty tasty looking animations. There is some poor platforming and few parts where the level design really falls down, but overall a good experience.
This is the single most fantastic Half-Life mod I have ever played. The whole thing is filled up to the brim with personality, quality, and an eerie feeling. This mod keeps you guessing from the moment you start to when (even after) you finish the game.
This is one of the few mods that are really well done. Soundtrack and modelling creates an excellent and original environment for a flowing gameplay. Although many times I wondered what to do next, just took me a few minutes to move on. Puzzles can be at times confusing, but nothing extremely hard. Story also is engaging and full of unexpected turns. I am amazed of how much you need advanced movement skills, I would say even more than in Half Life. The new weapons are creative and there is enough ammo to clear paths of tough enemies (not only xenians). I really recommend this mod, although is not long as I expected.

all of the weapons were awesome,
i wish i got a grenade though.

Easily on my Top 10 of favorite Half-Life Singleplayer mods. Very, very well done mapping with a fun story and great visuals. A must play.
HL mod for all times!
Another review incoming, and this time for one of the few great singleplayer mods for Half-Life 1.Many good things in here.Custom music used here, custom weapons, good story too.The quality is very nice, even though the mod is so damn old.And that's a good thing.
You had choices of weapons kinda intersting, such as a Nail Gun.That's right, a nail gun.Or even a automatic nail gun as a improving after you get through the game a bit more.
You can even have a double-barreled pump-action shotgun.Now that's awesome.
10/10, highly recommended.
