The Citizen is set parallel to the events of the original Half-Life 2. The player takes the role of an ordinary man, pushed over the edge by the oppressive regime controlling his life. His home trashed, his family dead, The Citizen leaves his apartment for the last time. He seeks new friends, and a way to help the human resistance to smash the iron grip of the Combine. What follows is a winding tale of betrayal, determination and grief. Many obstacles lie in his path which require a sleek combination of agility, stealth, intelligence, and sheer violence to overcome
The voice acting was fine just not great. The battles were a little too hard. The use of advisors was interesting.... seeing how i used my rpg against one. Disguising as combine prooved to be a little weird. The ending is very peculiar. The use of no choppers is good because choppers are used a lot. Overall i give this 9/10 because of the very very small flaws. And you have done good use of level creating. Keep up the good work.
The story was very strong from the start to the end. The voice acting could have been more "expressive", but the rest was just wonderful. The part where you're suppose to get into the vent to open the door for your 3 comrads was kind of disapointing since, well, you have to leave them. :( The ending was rather... interesting. Nice job :D I'm glad that this mod used something other than a chopper. You'll see. :)
The part where you get to disguise yourself as the combine is probably the best part. Once again, excellent job!!
Overall, I'd give this mod a 10/10. :D This is a must play mod!!
This is an average, with an okay story that won't drag you in but enough to satisfy your time playing. The gameplay is normal half-life 2, just like any shooter, no complaints. The map layouts are linear but certain maps have me confused. Overall this mod is decent enough for a download.
The Citizen does not live up to its potential, while the initial release 2 years back was so bug ridden that I was virtually unable to complete it, the current version isnt that much better. Scripts, still, fail quite often forcing you to reload a level and eventually you will get tired of this process, as the mod isn't that too good after all. The mod is heavily scripted, which mmight sound promising, however, these sequences turn out to be mostly boring. The voice acting is very poor and so are the maps which are in no way beautifull to look at.
What you are left with is a mod that is full of bugged sequences that offers little motivation to complete it, odd pacing and gameplay gimmicks that do not really work out that well.
