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...
The design of the mod is solid (mostly), although there is not much innovation. The train ride was a nice touch but a bit disappointing that it was only a ride and you didn't really have to do anything. The final Hunter battle was enjoyable and unique.
Puzzles are rather simple but in the same way as HL2 itself. Levels were for the most part very linear. Lack of flashlight and gravity gun were a nice change of pace. The pacing between combat and non-combat was good.
The story is intriguing but only barely fleshed out. Voice acting is good enough. G-Man sightings were a nice touch.
This is one of those rare mods that captures the essence of Valve's games. However, it is somewhat inconsistent. The brushwork is all solid but the locations feel uninspired. The combat is difficult but sometimes feels tedious. I am also disappointed that the custom weapon was removed.
Still, this is probably going to be on Top Ten lists for a while.
A good mod with good action and a shockingly similar feel to the actual half life 2 seiries. BUT, at times the game play felt 'awkward' and seemed alittle confusing on what to do. It also had a supprisingly abrupt ending just when it seemed like it was starting to get good.
I strongly recomend this mod regardless.

Overall the mod was great, with a nice gameplay pace between combat and puzzles. The hunter "boss fight" was pretty interesting but could've been better executed. Some areas are clearly bland and lacking a lot of detail, such as the lighting which felt extremely simplistic. But the mod doesn't disappoint in the rest, offering a fun and diverse gameplay. Can't wait for the sequel.
