Extremely hard even on easy, a zat gun on the series killed with two shots here it only kills after 4 or 5, the staff weapon is very inaccurate, much more them it was on the TV series, the human weapons are almost useless and run out of ammo very fast, you will spend a full magazine on a single jaffa and still he will not die, you will be using the jaffa weapons more times than not because of that, this game is a reload fest and that is a sign of a very badly designed and unbalanced gameplay. Stopped playing at the first boss, it is extremely hard, and that is because the tank you drive is very hard to maneuver, is slow and becomes unstable every time you shot the cannon, making it even harder to drive the tank, they also disabled kicksave on the boss fight, so if you spend half an hour trying to kill it and you want to save to not start all from scratch you are out of luck, is die start again die start again until you rage quit like i did.
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.
