Sweet Half-Life is a single-player mod for Half-Life. It includes 3 new weapons and 5 new enemies. weapons: Minigun: Mowing down an area has NEVER been easier with this bad-ass! Be careful, as it shares ammo with the M16. M16: One of the mod's main attractions, the M16 is the coolest weapon. 50 round clip, MP5 grenades and a short reload sequence. Plasma gun: 60 round clip, 240 ammo carried, and the R-A-C-E's standard issue. Secondary fire uses a BIG shot of 10 rounds. Short reload sequence. Enemies: Minigun grunt: Was "Dumped" from the final game, but it's YOUR chance to see him NOW! Armed with a minigun at all times and its speed make it a weak class selection. R-A-C-E: Standard aliens, always with a plasma gun. there are only 9 seen in-game if you choose Route A (twist the valve), but a LOT more if you choose route B. Probe: Think they will take a picture of you? They will zap you instead. Will detonate when killed. Probe boss: This is a quite hard boss. Only...
The maps were pretty good, and have the same quality as half-life maps.
Now the story was also very good, just like vanilla half-life.
The gameplay was awesome. I loved the new weapons, as they were actually different and interesting, unlike other weapons which are just like older weapons. I also loved the HEV scientists, that way I felt like I actually had a team to fight with me. I also felt like there was much more interaction with the scientists. The gameplay was the most exceptional part about this mod that I loved even more than vanilla half-life gameplay.
A MUST for anyone who likes half-life, and IMO, one of the best half-life mods out there.
Thankyou to whoever made this and you are a great modder
Ok This mod is awesome!
I love how theres more allys such as the HEV scientests
The new enemies are very interesting indeed,and the new weapons also,they are not like other mods with new weapons,they are not just retextured weapons,or old weapons,or weapons from other games,your group made them,i think everybody should play this mod,i give it a 10/10,and i love how you get to choose 2 paths near the end of the game (i took both of them :P 2 diffrent save files) the bosses,ooh a masterpiece,theyre attacks are so cool,i think the maps in the spaceships are best,your a great mod designer, final thought? boy those aliens love that classical music!
For an action mod, it's barely a good comedy one. The ambience and several maps gave me that feeling of playing Half-Life, but got some weird things like unfitting music in some parts and grey stereotyped aliens. The gameplay is not entertaining as HL and couldn't get into it. In fact, there was nothing special in this aspect except for the new weapons, which I consider a nice addition. Also I like the scientists fighting along with the player, something I never thought before. The idea of 2 paths to 2 different endings was good; one of them (with the aliens) was funny. The other one, just awesome. As for the endings, I didn't like none of the above.
All in all, Sweet Half-Life has more good things than bad ones, but the mod itself is not outstanding.
