Set in both the heart and outside of City 17, "The Citizen Returns" contains the final chapters of our citizen's story, as well as an updated version of Part II. The story takes place shortly after a failed assassination attempt on Dr. Breen leads to the first ever use of the Overwatch Broadcast system by The Resistance, represented by former garage owner Larry Soderstrom. The Combine forces decide to capture him and try to use his public repentance and execution as a means to appease the emergent rebellion. The Citizens of City 17 however have other ideas in mind. Larry is now a symbol for the rebellion and a key asset in a bigger plot to deal a fatal blow to the Combine and its grip on humankind...

How about putting this mod into Steam? So that, we can play it without of EP2 content?

You do know that you'd still need EP2 to play it, even if it were on Steam, right?

For My opinion
The story is better than HL2 , when I played this mod , I was more interested by the story than in HL2.
Let's wait a part 3.

The mod is listed as a HL2 Ep2 mod. I've never tried to play it without Ep2 installed so I'm not sure if there's any way to play without it.

who in his messed up mind created the casino part?? xD Just joking that was an amazing part but so out of place compared to the rest of the game (in a good way). The hanged people were disturbing but the scariest part was when you were approaching the banging door and you suddenly hear footsteps and 'something' walking past by you behind the stained glass. Not knowing what that was really makes it uncomfortable. Even though the 'creature' was scary enough I couldn't imagine how it would fit inside the hl2 world. What even was that? Sorry for the long post the casino really surprised me. :D

I really enjoyed this mod, and it's a great example of good design overall. In particular, I like the small details put into this mod that makes it stand out in a positively quirky and memorable light. The character of Larry will be a staple of this mod as the no-nonsense yet laid-back leader of a good majority of the mod. I highly recommend playing the first The Citizen first before playing this just so you can get Larry's full character. This mod also serves as an interesting example of choices…
