"We just have received word that a group of terrorists took over the Lonely Weapons Laboratory near Seattle. No more information are currently available. The CEO of Lonely Weapons, Fuzzy Mcgee is currently missing and we have not been able to establish contact with the terrorists. Your main objective is to infiltrate the laboratory and find Mcgee. Find information. I want to know who is behind this." The third person mod, Half-Life: Tactical Espionage Action puts the player in the role of secret agent Frank Johnson. His mission? To stop evil!
This is a must play, the team behind the mod was obviously very talented because this mod is just perfect if you like stealth games. Incredible mapping, a very responsive third person view, an interesting new gameplay elements such as the radio mode or the shooting mode. For the whole mod you have either to be stealthy (you have a camouflage system) or shoot your way out with your MP5. It's quiet short but full of good stuff, but like I said, this is mostly a stealth game. I personally don't like stealth games that much so I didn't enjoy it a lot (I tried to play it like a standard HL mod and quickly failed). Fortunately to help you in combat there's a regenerating health system! The mod also has some interesting (but sometimes confusing) puzzles. You will certainly enjoy this if you're in the mood of playing stealth games.
It felt alot like metal gear (witch I love) However. The game was clunky and felt like it was missing something. also the custom models were hard to find I liked it but it had lacking stuff like disapearing enemys, and also barely any custom models.
