The Gate is a single player modifcation with a difference, featuring a 30 plus strong team of voice actors, and authentic WWII weaponry and heart pumping classical music It has a feel of no other mod out there.. There is a MP3 player coded into the Gate engine and we have genuine german voice actors playing the parts of the Soldiers..

It is staged in Egypt and Northern Europe during wartime, and incorperates new teqniques for stealth and sneaking around which was thought inpossible with the Halflife engine.. Coded into the Engine also is new kill characteristics such as one shot head kills etc...

The Gate has been 16 months in the making so far and keeps growing and growing...

When I turned off the autoaim, the game restarted and crashed. After I tried to launch it again, it said that running it in OpenGL failed last time, and it will now launch in software mode. Now the whole menu interface Is f'ked up and I can't do anything.

I don't really want to reinstall it over again. Mainly because of the long cutscenes I'll have to bare and the fact that I got pretty '' far '' into the game. The part where you get your gun.

The mod suffers from a variety of problems, but the most apparent is the poor level design. Progression rarely makes sense, cheap tricks are used to kill the player and worst of all - the whole thing is HGrunt mania. There is only one single enemy in the game and it's a badly modelled HGrunt with an SMG. That's it. If they had used varied HGrunts that might have helped a little, but really it's a very tedious experience. The low point of the mod (and the part that tested my patience most of all…
