It was just - WOW.
I was searching for good Stargate mods for games, the one for Half-Life wasn't thaaaat good as I thought, then I found this one. And it was epic. Nice story, nice action, some parts were hard, but thats what I'm expecting from games. Thank you for developing this mod.
I may have over reacted, the beggining sucks but as a True stargate fan I have to respect all your amazing work. Keep on pulishing it : D
Im gonna give you guys some advice that will probably change my rating and everyones:
1. Put a grown up to make the military dialogs
2. Loose the ships from Battlestar Galactica
3. Jaffa are way 2 invincible, you need a full clip of a P90 to take one down.
4. Try to make some metal particle effect when you hit a jaffa, it will look just like in the show.
Just seeing the work that went in to such a mod would justify such a rating. The devotion to the sci-fi genre in this is overflowing, while the writing is a bit dry the lack of narrative can be easily forgiven when remembering the modders don't speak English as a first language and voice overs fall into 2 categories of expensively good or poor. I would rather have text than a bad voice-over.
The weapons in this mod are plentiful, as are the levels. On my first time through, not knowing the great length of it, I always half expected the hardest enemy I had yet come across would end up being the final boss and that the game would end. But I never did, from the earth to the stars the game kept going.
Though I would have liked if all enemies but bosses would have a weak spot (e.g. headshot kill zone) so some measure of stealth could be maintained, only a small portion of the encounters were ones where you had to really focus to keep the advantage.
Being a small team mod, I don't expect much from a mod, especially when they aim to include many custom textures. This mod however blew my entire concept of what a fan mod could really be, out of the sky. It is fantastic. Glitches and bugs be dammed, this mod is a masterpiece. As is with crashes and all I would have paid a small sum to play this know knowing what it contains.
Anyone who rated less than 5 either has no love of any of the series represented in this mod or has expectations far exceeding that of reality when it comes to total conversion mods. I would dare any of them to do better.
I love this mod, please make another or expand this one more.
After beating Crysis from easy to Delta, then beating it from easy to Delta w/cheats ( which make is easy on every level). I stopped playing it for a while, reinstalled it yesterday and went through it all again, then went hunting for mods and found this. At first glance it looked fun, interesting, and add more playability to the game. DL, installed, got it working and boy, no voice's makes it very bland, text was giving me a headache. First mission was a pain on the first try, couldn't kill anyone, so on my second try i read the text while trying to survive and finally did it right. Got to the evac and was getting owned by the Koreans/Chinese as if they have lock on bullets or something. Impossible to see them with the snow storm, so had to rely on hit markers to find them. Not to mention it takes like a clip to kill just one, and thats on normal mode. auto-reload would be nice, more med-packs at the evac site. The NPC needs to aim better. I think this mod has some potential but from what little i read on the official site, the devs don't want to do anything else to it. Kudo's to the 2 devs if they made this just with the both of them, though probably would of been smarter to try to bring on more hands to help. If no more patche's or tweeks, possible voice dialog added, clearer mission objectives,auto-reload or atleast the option to turn it on, some type of armor, bulletproof vest or something. Enemies on normal mode shouldn't have 99% perfect aim & hit.
I would recommend to bring on some more modders and do another patch or something to make it more enjoyable.
Put more heart into it, 4 years in the making and from the reviews i read, forums, and gameplay, it is lacking alot of heart.
Best of luck.
