Old but gold :D
You have to use logic.
It looks good, but I can't play it :(
I have this game in steam :P
ALERT: This review contains spoilers and details from gameplay.
I thought it won't be as creative as 2Pz and the mod proved me wrong gladly :-)
The variety of Jap units is very interesting, here are some touches in the mod I found unique and creative:
- Jap voices,
- Snipers on trees was a very good idea,
- There is a snake in Campaign 2! Yes, a well detailed one .. has visible scales, and detailed mouth with teeth and tongue! It hisses on you when attacked. I though it is harmless until it bit one of my soldiers and he died instantly lol,
Update: I found a Crocodile in campaign 3, a pretty big one.
Update 2: Watch out from the big poisonous Tarantulas.. too!
- Airdropped reinforcements,
- Beautiful new maps,
- Stopping trucks convoys is not required most of the time but will give you supplies,
- Weapons accuracy is not precise to make battles more realistic.
Also Mod is challenging; missions would corner your team and give you some good beating, make sure that you don't send one soldier alone to complete a task, always maintain fire support.
Timed missions can be crazy, they are well thought of and time is not on your side.
One thing to do to improve Gameplay:
- Objectives texts need to be revised and edited to be more informative and clear.
10/10 and recommended.
Thanks Albus and other contributors for making this mod.
nice game also good touch with minecraft engine.
an exceptioanlly good joke lad!
A high suspense with a great quality of graphism and sound !
this is acually a custom game where i can run around being chased by monsters and not doing many confusing puzzles. i never got stuck one in this cutom story
this truly is a poor excuse of a mod
Black Mesa is a very good example of what a fan base dedicated to a game can achieve. A fan made Re-creation of Valve Software's 1998 cult classic Half-Life, Black Mesa makes a brilliant attempt at bringing people of today back to a game that helped revolutionize the industry back in the late 90's.
Black Mesa has had a lot of custom content created specifically for it to bring the atmosphere to life, including a custom soundtrack and entirely new models and textures. The voice acting is high quality and with the more modern tech of the Source engine, the characters have been bought to life better than in the original game.
Black Mesa does a good job in connecting Hl2 and HL1 together better by including the characters of Dr Kleiner and Eli Vance from HL2 so as to improve canon between the two games.
Aside from all the good things it does, Black Mesa does contain some negatives.
I for one, feel that the weapon and NPC animations are lacking somewhat, as they feel stiff and not completely natural. A good example of the animation is the Crowbar you get at the start of the game; the animation of it when being used doesn't feel as normal as it does in HL1.
Another thing that I found upsetting was the fact that the chapters Surface Tension and On a Rail were not the size or challenge they were in the original game. Surface Tension has been left half finished and On a Rail has been shortened so much that the challenge it posed in HL1 (Even if it was annoying) is no longer there.
I am also personally, not keen on the repositioning of the Bullsquid's eyes as it does not look like it did in HL1. I've also noticed the Bullsquid uses Vortiguant eye textures for its eyes which I feel is slightly lazy of whomever made the textures for the model
since an earlier alpha/beta version of Black Mesa's Bullsquid resembled the HL1 version much better.
I hope to see the negatives addressed with patches, updates and even fan made mods. Until then, I eagerly await the Xen release.
Black (or maybe sometimes white) pearl. All is done excellently. If famed indie platformer "Closure" is a king, then this game is a prince.
You'll play for hours without realizing it, is a very addictive game :)
Jugarás durante horas sin darte cuenta, es un juego muy adictivo :)
just one of the best mods for SOASE game
a beautiful pack, well designed, troops look good and are armed as to what you'd think for their factions, however i was unsure as of any mods in this module, for example the meet the Guild master and town elder buttons, i find these two alone are a mandatory bit that should be added to a good mod pack. This module has an insane amount of potential, and i could see myself playing it for hours on end, but without mods like the two i mentioned, this is just a well designed native in my eyes, and if i wanted to play native I'd play native (sorry for being blunt here) Here's hoping you guys add some more to the mods in the module, I'll be waiting for news on this mod pack to see if it gets better.
- Huge creativity
- Well written story
- No real intro
- The objects you need could have been a bit harder to find
- Mapping can be improved
- Not really scary at all
- Glitch with the mushroom (if you throw something on it, the gland is not there)
Neutrals: (Does not affect the score)
- The "going back to the bedroom" thing is a nice idea and I understand it's an important part of the story. Still, it could be a bit annoying in lenght.
The mapping is not a "wow" factor and it offers a low challange. Although, the story is very well written and that is a huge plus from me (since few people focus on the story nowdays), I found very few bugs and I enjoyed playing it. A lot of things can be improved for future stories/patches, but it easily deserves a 8/10 anyway. Good job!
8/10 - Very good
Très bon jeu
