Research and Development is a puzzle-centric mod for Half-Life 2: Episode Two featuring an unarmed player but plenty of violent mayhem.
Research and Development is an extremely unique idea. The player solves puzzles and engages in combat with dangerous foes, soley using the Gravity Gun.
Playing this mod reminded me of Portal, in the way that all puzzles are different and that combat is purely strategic. This may very well be the most beautifully executed mod I have ever played. If you have any doubts about downloading it, ignore them.
One of the best mods in Half Life 2 atmosphere. The best thing about this mod is a lot of logic puzzle, source event system is pushed to limit. Every room presenting something new in Source modding. Very clever, and beautiful- level design also advanced- in Episode 2 style, maybe a bit better. Generally 10/10 you won't find a mod like this! Worth playing, best gameplay ideas on Source in your hands.
Amazing work! I actually forget when playing this, that it's a mod. It feels like like a company spent a year with a team creating this work. I really enjoyed the fact that there were so many puzzle elements, that blended with sections of action and adventure.
Very well written and directed dude!
