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...
A great little side story to the main series with almost perfect level design, the use of shadow and witholding the lam was a great touch and all in all I only got lost/killed once when I got confused the rest were my fault.
The only bad point is the story being fleeting radio conversations and almost nothing else, something stronger/ perhaps the addition of 1-2 moe speaking characters would have helped.
An inspiring modification, set within the Half Life 2 Universe.
Congratulations to the creators of this mod, you've managed to truly capture the melancholic and desperate atmosphere of Half Life 2, delving into the storyline without treading on the toes of delicate and precise lore.
Excellent writing, pace and mapping! I give this a solid 10. Thanks for immersing me once again in this sublime universe during this long wait for Episode 3.
(Brilliant Russian voices comrades.)
This mod is just awesome. Great story line, good puzzles, intense action. The only thing I was annoyed at was the fight with the hunter, and how the hunter kept healing itself with the different energy pads? on the ground. I didn't realise there were so many, and by the time the hunter found them all i ran out of ammo....
Regardless of that, I greatly enjoyed this mod and would love for the Precursor team to create another mod!
Even with minimal amount of exposition and simplistic use of voice overs through radio communications, this mod manages to stay exciting with its great map design that adds a sense of urgency to navigating a combine occupied city and zombie infested sewers.
