A video playthrough and review by Medve:

No, Station 51 is not Area 51, and has no aliens, what a bummer. BUT, there are Combine soldiers...and a lot of 'em. Yes, mostly you are going to shoot innocent soldiers, who are just doing their job (spoiler alert: trying to kill you), but you will also encounter some zombies and Xen creatures.

The strongest part of the map is probably the layout. It's not too linear, and keeps it interesting with secrets. It keeps your attention, and of course you don't have to find small objects in big warehouses (which is kind of a fashion nowadays). It's one bigger map, not even sure how did he manage to create such a big map in this engine, but in the end it takes about an hour to finish. Short, logical, has secrets, has plenty Combine to kill. If you haven't played it yet, go ahead.

Hmm, this is an odd bug. Maybe try and verify your HL2:EP2 cache? Right click on HL2:EP2 in your Library, then go to Properties>Local Files and click "Verify Integrity of Game Cache".

Did that, it said "All files successfully validated", ran the mod, and, what do you know? Didn't work. Welp, I'm stumped. I can run normal HL2 mods like a breeze, but EP2 isn't going to let me have fun.

Hmm, I can't seem to find a solution. But you can still play the maps by copying them to Episode 2 and manually starting them.

Copy the "station51_1.bsp" and "station51_2.bsp" files from the "\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\sourcemods\station51\maps" folder into your Episode 2 map folder, located at "Program Files\Steam\steamapps\*YOUR STEAM ID HERE*\half-life 2 episode two\ep2\maps".

After copying the map files over, start Episode 2, open the console with the tilde (~) key, and type "map station51_1" without the quotes. This should bring up the map.

If tilde doesn't bring up the console, go to: Options > Keyboard > Advanced > Enable Developer Console (~), and check this box to enable the console.

This should let you run the maps. The only difference is it will run the Episode 2 credits at the end instead of mine, but you're not missing much.

Sorry for the trouble, hopefully this at least lets you play the maps.

But there's a problem..I cant find my EP2 folder. I can run it and play it fine, but there isn't any files. I've tried clicking "Browse local files" but nothing happened. What the heck is going on ._.

I know but there wasn't a damn Episode 2 folder. There was no folder leading to any files. There is one now, but wasn't one before.

I love canon-style mods like Precursor. Gotta re-install HL2 and try this.

I was pretty impressed at the start. The mod jumps right into the action with snipers, combine, dropships, etc. No tedious learning curve, since MOD-players are experienced players. The good design puts monsters below you, under you and make them flank left and right. After that the MOD sadly starts to decline. Before the zombie part you have to shoot the energy ball to unlock the door. There is no reason for that advanced security to be there and what makes it even more strange is that the gravity…
