It looks amazing. Boy you guys can map!
Other elements let it down unfortunately.
The firefights were all face to face, very few long range fights. Door opens, 3 combine run at you. Turn corner, combine right in your face.
Found that rather frustrating as Combine AI will always have them run right up to you if they can.
They work much better at a distance when there is no route to the player with lots of cover.
Also, using names like "Kevin" and "James", don't really inspire adventure. I can't recall any names being given to me of the resistance members in the official half life games so this kinda made me feel like i was playing a mod rather than an official expansion (which is what we're all dying to play).
Finally I wasn't really impressed with the puzzles. Battery puzzle took 2 seconds to solve and we've seen it before, the powerbox on the wall that opened the secret door was just plain dumb luck that I tried that. It's tantamount to running round the walls spamming the E key.
Still, the sheer amount of work on this and the mapping put it way about many of the offerings out there.
Well done! The gameplay was not too short or too long and the gameplay was awesome! But they need to have more feelings in the voice acting and better lightning in some areas. Some parts had so bad voice acting it was frustrating! And many parts were so dark i almost didn't know if it was a friendly or enemy i was shooting at. Either way, fix more lights in the game or a flashlight that you can use so it's not so hard to see, and don't be scared to put feeling intoo the voice acting. Anyway, very well made mod i suggest you download it right now!
This game is awesome!
The story is totally amazing! It gets to you from the first scene, and you can't stop playing until you have played the whole thing and knows what happened to the caracters, who are really well made. Ypi really understand them and feel for them in their trubles.
The artwork is amazing and sets the mood perfectly for the game.
The game is really well made, no detail has been forgotten or left to chance in the process. Everything fits together perfectly, from the voiceacters and the artwork to the story and game-controlls. I can't find anything negative to say!
I really, really, really, really like it, and I would recomend everybody to play, and fall in love with, the cat lady!!
