Re-enter the Half Life Universe and revisit City 17 in the time before Freeman, in this fan made single-player mod. The Resistance is threatened by a decisive Combine assault, and as a wanted Resistance member you will need to fight to escape from the Combine's clutch. At the same time, a mysterious force is working towards ends unknown...
My second favorite HL2 mod from now on(the first one ie Minerva).I especially enjoyed fight with the Hunter-Boss.It was really new and nice experience.Besides the map design is very clever and decent.Voice acting is also solid.
This is quite possibly the best single-player HL2 mod I've played - especially the first 10 minutes or so. As others have mentioned, there aren't really any new design ideas that you haven't already seen in the Half-Life series, but the quality of the maps is right up there with what Valve has produced. It would be nice to have a more exciting battle for the finale though, as the current ending seems a bit anticlimactic.
A decent mod, Well voice acted, fun/well mapped levels (and in some cases challenging) and fantastic music along side scenes.
Considering its free, this ones definitely worth giving a go.
In depth Summery:
Story - Short and sweet, any Half Life fan will understand whats going on in each level, Some would say its lacking story however I think they got just the right amount needed without shoving the plot in your face.
Game play - Not 'difficult' as such but there will be moments when you will have to think rather than constantly shoot. I personally had a couple occasions where I had to assess the situation more closely before moving on.
Voice Acting - Good voice acting, however the accents did throw me off a bit the first time I heard them, It didn't hinder the game however so I'd say it dosen't change anything.
Final Verdict - 10/10
I HL:Precursor 10/10 because it had clearly had effort put into and it was genuinely enjoyable, despite it being a short story it was still fun to play and thats what counts.
Great mod! If you're reading this and thinking about downloading it, just do it.
Story stuff: The basic idea was pretty good, though the story wasn't that interesting. It wasn't horrible or anything though.
Level design: Absolutely stellar. Was better than hl2 IMO. Though that one point after the Hunter, I had to noclip through the fence to move on.
Gameplay: The best. It didn't have a thousand weapons like hl2, it made the most out of the ones you had though.
