The first part of the mod, from the beginning to the first fight with the combine, I believe the mapping was good to mediocre, but after that, the maps looked beautiful, and it did give me a sense that something was gonna come at me, and the flashbacks with the citizens were pretty cool

I played this a while back in a play test, and I had to admit its one of the better source mods ive played in a while. It has that old nostalgia feel to singleplayer games, where the story isn't incredibly blunt but more subtle and leaves it up to the player.

Wizard really got his own unique style of level design down, and I feel like this is just a must play, its visually great, and the combat is fun as hell.
