The Unknown Menace has its very own story and challenge, but like most creations, it took inspiration from other games and mods. The Unknown Menace took nothing from the storyline of Half-Life, and is completely independent from it, although the user will have to possess the game to play the mod, because it uses some sprites, models and textures from it, that wont be featured in the pack.

A great one in my opinion. The only Half-Life mod that was as fun, as to make me replay it. The enemies kill you in around two shots so make fair use of the quick save button.
There are a bunch of new weapons, including a Uzi, a high powered Barret sniper rifle and much more. Though, you won't be using much of the weapons too frequently, because their use is fairly limited.

The game starts off all stealth-y-ly, towards the mid-game hovewer, you'll be going all John Wick on the terrorists, head shott-ing with the help of aim-assist. (And you can't turn it off either, because if you will, or change any options at all, you will pretty much break the game.)

7/10 from me.

+ Very satisfying gameplay because of the headshot mechanic.
+ Great mix of stealth and action.
+ Has that old school style of difficulty.

- Some of the weapons look weird, and some have very limited use / are ineffective.
- Dull voice acting.
- Aim assist makes it too easy, and the game pretty much breaks if you try disable it.

It's because this mod was created for the old WON HL. Try to play it with Xash3D Engine:

Another mod with "CS-like" gameplay, where enemies do high damage resulting in game over with only a few shots. There is a CS-like radar to help you deal with enemies. Also a ton of new weapons, but beware the ending that is on a strict timer (kinda like in trespasser)
