This is a remake of the original Half-Life mod The Challenger Deep. This re-designed mod has been in development for more than 7 years. It follows the same storyline as the original.
A VAST improvement over the previous mod, with greater level design and firefights!
The mod is also substantially longer, with great atmosphere and a better focus on the story and just what the scientists in challenger deep were doing at the bottom of the ocean.
It does come with it's hitches, however.
There are frame-rate issues here and there, and the larger open areas make fights overwhelming at times and hard to navigate.
However, it is a great remake of the original.
Give it a go :D
Could've used some additional testing as it suffer from a few bugs. A few levels are also poorly optimized with some very varying framerate especially the big open rooms.
Otherwise this a very good mod with some great and open level design. Pretty much blows away the original which was the definition of quantity over quality.
Most disappointingly however, the ending is extremely short and to be honest quite weak leaving you with a few unsolved questions.
Okay this mod was somewhat of a let-down for me. I really did overanticipate this mod but I really thought this mod would feel like a new expansion to half life. The new textures were awesome though, and the level design was actually quite amazing. There were some ridiculously wide open rooms I feel. But the worst thing in this mod that ****** me off the most was the scientist. He glitched out near the end of the game. So I actually never got to finish the mod. Overall, I think if I tried again then I might be able to get that damn scientist to follow me. One more thing, I did like the presents you could find. It really sets replay value on this mod. Anyway, pros and cons time:
cool new setting
not too difficult
clean running with no crashes
buggy situation with the scientist that needs to follow you in the end
empty wide open rooms
a little too short
