Titan: XCIX is a first person adventure that takes place aboard the ill fated star ship of the same name. When an accident rips apart a lone ship on a routine mission, the crew find themselves fighting for survival, and each other in a unique Single Player experience, that's been in the making for the past two years. Developed single handedly by Robin "IZaNaGI" Molde (Jailbreak!: Source, Survival Mod II for JK:JA), Players will face many challenges that will test their brains rather than their trigger fingers. Requires Half-Life 2: Episode Two
Though I did not play through the entire mod, I played through about an hour, I can honestly say that what I did experience was really impressing. There were a few things that werent all that perfect but thats nothing a little polishing cant fix. Great mod!
A high quality, but short mod. A lot of fun for thinker types.
If you are looking for an action packed game from beginning 'till end you will not find it here.(Despite there being a few action sequences)
+ Very fitting maps (Lighting and art style fit well together and the art style is consistent)
+ The mod makes you feel like one of the crewmen, you aren't just a mindless drone that has no more to do but shoot at anything that moves. Plus, they actually treat you like a crew member they've known for a long time (The way they talk to you)
+ It tells it's story in various ways, sometimes with cut-scenes, sometimes with (well done) text files one can find and most of the time you witness things as you play and listen to the other crew members
+ The story, while not original (racism is nothing new, though still a big subject for us) is told really well and is interesting
+ There is a lot to explore and the story, while linear, offers you a lot to ponder and think about
+ There are quite a few other crew members to help you or hinder your progress. They feel fitting and are all different, they don't feel generic. (I have no real complaint about the voice-acting, either)
+ There are some (very) challenging puzzles
+ The ship's AI is funny and interesting, even if the idea is nothing new
- The mod was a bit short and the end was a bit sudden
- It was sometimes a bit difficult to beat some puzzles
- A bit nit-picky: The other crew members should really use some custom animations, the standard Half-Life 2 animations don't always feel that fitting
The spaceship looked a bit naff in the intro, but the interior was well crafted and had a dark foreboding presence! Loved the wet areas and the outside shower! This is an excellent HL2 total conversion, great graphics and sound and interesting gameplay. Been waiting for this since I saw some very promising early in-game shots. Promise fulfilled!
More a puzzling exploration mod, (A+ for that!), than the usual space opera and a lesson in battery care in wet environments!
Part two is coming soon I hope?
I like the overall look of the mod, especially the red motif. The puzzles were easy enough but I never felt like they were overly simple. The references to other mods and fourth wall humor are nice additions since they lighten what seems to be a very foreboding game. The exterior sections were short but interesting; I hope there will be combat during those sequences in later installments since those deflector arrays look like they could provide some cover for guns as well as meteorites.
I like the look of the hud and how it differentiates between cutscene subtitles and whenever the player character is examining something.
HEY WHERES PART II.
THIS WAS A GOOD MOD IT WAS SO WELL DONE ITS ALL ABOUT GETTING OFF THE DAMNED THING LOVE IT. YOU GUYS ARE PROS AT THE MAPPING AND THE MODELS. HEY AND THE ANIMATIONS WHERE GRATE THANKS FOR THE MOD.
