Darkness... My body hurts! Or is it my brain? The explosion! I remember it now. Maybe I'm in a coma? Or even worst, I may be already dead... Everything is so confusing... Zombies, monsters and ghosts from the past are filling my mind... Oh God, so many memories mixed with my dreams! I can't even distinguish them anymore. What if my entire life was just a nightmare? But it felt so real... Wait, what's that sweet voice? Sounds like a nurse! THAT is part of reality, I am sure. Now if I could just concentrate on this voice and try to wake up...

Briliant work..
Models:9
Models were great..For the age of this mod i'm suprised some mods can't even get a litle bit close to them..Altough the skeletons are similiar to vortiguants (They are reskinned vortiguants)the fleesh creeature sounds just makes it scary..I say models are HD enough and that you don't need UD to play but just the good old models..
Gameplay:10
Gameplay is amazing..When you think that you've seen everything in the episodes something new appears..Like in episode 3 Rude awakening where from a hospital you end up in a zombie farm..Gameplay was made specifically for this kind of stuff..It was great..
Story:10
This mod has a deep story..As you go further into the mod and reach episode 2 you find out that doctor Franklin found a special chemical that brings back corpses to life and that that's how the cheriff was zombified..
Maps:9
Maps were almost perfect..They could get confusing sometimes but the reason i don't give it 9 out of 10 is because the trees could use a lil more detail but everything else is set great..The detail in episode 1 to episode 3 is increasing..
Sounds:10
Sounds are amazing..The voice actors knew what to do..The heads that talk really are creepy and the frankenstein monsters are amazing on voice..The skeletons can creep you out by saying "fleeeesh cretuuure" or "so fat" or even "aaaah fleeesh"..
Props:10
This mod has allot of props..From what i see even in episode 1 they're rich on them..Episode 3 just shows off major props like the steam engine they made..All i can say is props look great..
10 out of 10..

For players:Please play this mod..Once you do you won't stop untill you realise it's so great..Who ever thinks this mod isn't good must have bad taste because this is "one of those" mods which doesn't seem to mess up anything and is ballanced..This mod should've ben declaired a stand-alone game or expansion..Moddb users who read this..Please vote 10 and play it!

When I first played this mod I didn't know what to expect. Well, I expected tons of Zombies and stuff but that's not the point. The mod pulls you in with its cool intro and scripted sequences. When just wandering around the church grounds, you often hear "Hungerrr" or "Freshh", even if no zombies are around. This has players dumbfounded and searching each corner for something to jump at them. Now down to the real part of the review.

Graphics: 5/5
The graphics in They Hunger are the old-school 3d fps graphics. Models look good, from Zombies to Civilians, from the Shotgun to even the Umbrella, the models and textures show hard work, and much time put into it.

Gameplay: 5/5
They Hunger has more to it than just mindless Zombie-bashing, there are puzzles and some mazes to be discovered when you play this mod. Maps are sort-of linear, but sometimes you will just be asking yourself "Where am I supposed to go?". Other than that, They Hunger also has very detailed maps. The catacombs in the church grounds are heavily detailed and are kind of frightening because of Zombies breaking out of there catacomb. Scripted sequences are also done very well.

Sound: 4/5
Voice acting and sound effects are really one of the greater goods in They Hunger. With cheesy effects to frightening Zombie shrieks, They Hunger really nails it. Zombies groan with dull lifelessness, just like they should. Other characters, like the Zombie Sherrif, have excellent voice acting.

Conclusion: I thoroughly enjoy this mod. IF you like Zombies, horror games and First persons shooters, you will love They Hunger

FINAL SCORE: 10/10
Perfect

I can remember the first time I played this, it scared the **** out of me! I loved the quality of the story, mapping and textures! This mod should ALWAYS be the first mod that ANY Half-life player downloads and plays!

classic

This is one of the best mods (and games) I've ever played. Amazing combination of horror and humor. I love it so much, that I'm currently working on remake, that were suspended by original performer. 10/10!

This mod was unbelievably bad. It has poor voice acting, maps that lead you in circles, and seems as if it were made before Half Life was even released. To its credit, SOME of the models and maps were creative, but even then, you'd just see the same base enemy with a different model. The voices of the zombies, particularly the skeletons, were just laughable. I wanted to mute the game before I died laughing at their ridiculous voices. The story was all over the place. I could follow it as much as…
