Fight as an alien grunt through the great levels of Black Mesa, Half-Life: Chronicles: Episode One plus Xen training...
A very nice mod that puts you in the shoes of an Alien grunt as he and his friends assault black mesa!
You use the hornet gun and a melee attack throughout and you regain health and armor by consuming fallen enemies, bot parasitic aliens and humans such as grunts or security guards. It's very different and it works surprisingly well, forcing the player to be very aggressive when assaulting the enemy instead of falling back for supplies.
It's quite short, and many of the levels have been ripped from the Half-life Chronicles, however, this mod should not be overlooked for it's main character, combat and game-play. :)
not bad shortmode connected with half-life storyline
i like scene of "COUNTER-ATTACK" chapter, when we with other agrunt get fight againts humans. will be nice if we are playing in cooperate with another agrunts at more time, not just in first scene. its look like one man army of xen start counter-attack against bm. eat dead humans for regaing health and armor is good. nice sound and other effects for get filling us in agrunt role. like predator style there is glowing on npcs. green for human life form and red for xens.
Throughout Half-Life, You have played as Gordon, You've played as Shephard, You have played as Barney, And you've played as various people escaping from Black Mesa... Now you play as another alien.
Xen-Warrior has you playing as a Alien Grunt who has been just teleported to earth to wreck havoc on Black Mesa while keeping yourself safe from hostile humans (like in Point Of VieW)
The mod takes place at the same time as Half-Life:Chronicles, and Half-Life:ETF while providing some new areas.
However, There are two serious flaws that prevent this from being a ten:
Xen-Warrior has a tendency to crash if you save while the "Melee Hivehand" weapon is selected and sometimes you can get stuck in the map if you are not away from walls or object.. None the less, This mod gives you a new POV to explore.
