"The Masked Prisoner" explores the untold stories of several Half Life characters - taking place in a prison on the outskirts of City 17.
This was undoubtedly the best mod I've played in a year (or longer).
Some of the vistas, even though blocky, are really well detailed. It's indeed a shame that the author won't be resolving the plentiful blocky rocks and grasses, but all this is forgiven by the really well done interiors of the camp.
The scripting in the mod is top-notch and is obvious that this an actual designer's work. The action sequences are really blood-pumping and there is plenty to explode.
The mod also makes use of the "disguise" technique which is really cool with all it's subtlety.
At last, that end run was absolutely marvelous, super exciting. I've never seen an ending to a mod that was this awesome.
I wish Mr. Mike continues working on Source modding/mapping.
Very good mod, the gameplay is fantastic and the Alyx voice actor at the end sounds a lot like the real one. I just wish it was a little longer because playing as Barney again is awesome!
Really nice Half-Life mini-installment to explain where the hell Barney went to during EP2. What a klutz. Perfect voice actor for Alyx, though and actually surprised me that I was playing as him, and genuinely thought that I was originally playing as a HL2 citizen just captured by the Combine because RDM...
an overally very enjoyable experience.
i thouroughly enjoyed being a cp but would`ve preferred it to go on a bit longer before i blew my cover.
This is a short but very very well-made mod. At first, I guess the main character was a security from Black Mesa. At the end, I realized he is Barney. So nice!
Very great mod, not as good as other mods i played. but still such a BLAST !!
Good mod, good paced action, interesting story, but i think that artisticaly it could be beter...
+Alot of fighting and a nice introduction to whats going on with Barney.
+Some new voice acting, quite minimal but it all felt like it had its place.
-No puzzles really, besides a rather simple blow up combine generator.
Its definitely a fun 30-40 minutes if you have played alot of good mods and want more. I'd recommend this easily.
This is very nicely done, and it's hard for me to say that. My only complain is that it's maybe a little too short. Nice twist at the end, should have seen it coming.
Straight forward, wonderfully scripted and tightly design, the masked prisoner was a wonderful romp from beginning to end.
While the first release turned me off with orange-mapping, and the latest release is missing some details in the levels, the eye-candy is nothing without solid gameplay, something TMP makes up for ten-fold. With great enemy placement and tight and frantic combat, TMP is just long enough to keep your attention and short enough to refrain from becoming dry.
Simply stunning, I had a blast. :D
