With the Citadel on the verge of a catastrophic meltdown, Barney and Gordon Freeman are trying to escape City 17 when their plans take an unexpected detour.
If you want to play HL2: Episode One but with Barney instead of Alyx, this is the mod for you. The only things that make it worth playing are the strider battle and the level of quality.
Nice, short mod! :)
I'm not going to judge this by its length, seeing as not all mods have to be several hours worth of playtime.
The mapping was ok and there were some nice detailing put in (like the pidgeons near the end).
When teaming up with Barney there were some minor logical flaws. For example why would he run from cover to cover when the strider was obviously busy making short work of the rebels? And when I followed him hot on his heels, he still shouted "This way Gordon!" as if I wasn't following him at all. When we reached the gate, and Barney is left on the outside, it was as if the Strider was patiently waiting for the dialogue to end even though it had a clear line of sight to Barney. Then after finishing Barney ran straight for the Strider, ignoring the cover completely, being shot to pieces as he went, which is not only unlogical but also inconsistent.
The voice acting was decent, although somewhat monotone and wooden in overall. The voice fit Barney well, but technically the acting could've been more alive. I also noticed that the volume of the voice actor was very low compared to all the other sound in the game, which should be tweaked if a patch or add is made to the mod :)
Weapon and ammo placement was a bunched up in strategic locations instead of being sprinkled through the map, which kind of broke the flow of the game instead of helping out as they all marked the beginning of a new enemy wave. Some larger caches are nice, but the item spread could've been better.
