Over all its a great recreation of the original all the way up to the portal to Xen via the lambda complex.
The mapping and atmosphere is superb and the graphics are stunning despite the growing age of the source engine.
However as satisfying as this mod was I still have to point out some glaring problems :(
For starters the view models are well ... decent at best. The MP5 model is incomplete as its missing its front sight blade and along with its proportion issues it has really ****** reload animations to boot.
The bolt for example magically moves on its own while reloading which is a simple clip in clip our deal. the grenade launchers trigger is used but only for what seems to be a couple frames making it look jerky and robotic and the M203 isn't even reloaded.
The MP5 magazines are also 3 times the size of the ones on the actual MP5 model and this is just plain retarded. The grenade models for the MP5s M203 are also way too small looking like some kind of an airsoft toy :/ The regular MK2 frag grenades view model is also somewhat too small when compared to its RL counter part as well as the games world model of it.
The Glocks model and textures are ok but it lack any secondary fire mode like say the classic rapid fire or even iron sights or melee. Strangely the secondary does make a empty clicking noise while under water tho. the animations are ok but they lack a full reload animation IE no matter how many rounds are left the guns slide always moves back on it own during reload which is again annoying. simply moving the slide back to chamber a round by hand would have been much easier and more visually appealing when reloading.
I would also like to point out that the sounds scripts particularly with the weapon sounds don't always work failing to play
And as a final disappointment the M4 and Beretta weapons are missing from the game despite them being modeled and showcased on the website Alot of HD fans like me are bound to be annoyed by this as well.
I love everything about this game,but I change the graphics in the menu and nothing happends.The fps of the game are terryble,cause I'm forced to play in 1920X Xmwhen the native resolution of my monitor is 1280X1024,so i almost can't play the game..Pleeeaase,pleease fix this!
An exceptional mod. The map design was equal if not superior to the base game. The ending level was tacked on, though. Another thing that bothered me was in Alleyways part 3 (I think) where if you don't find the path, you are met with infinite waves of enemies. That was the only time I ran out of ammo in ALL weapons in Max Payne 2.
Simply. AMAZING. I had recently played Half life for PS2, and this is an incredibly BIG improvement. It looks amazing, the voice acting is better, you have more health, the guns are more powerful and feel better, and it is fun as all hell. 10/10, 100/100, 10000000000/10000000000. Good job guys, keep up the good work.
At first i made a really nice review to this game mod. But then i advanced further in the game and i got really ****** off... Yeah its pretty and scenic , yeah most of the voice acting is great and the music is fantastic but there is a huge annoying gash that just makes the game ****!
AI: WHAT BASICALLY MAKES THE GAME ****
Soldiers...Im fine with other critters plaing running to eat you but soldiers(well the alien soldiers suck in this department as well). Anyway so where were we? oh yeah - soldiers.... They. were. terrible. I felt like i was playing Soldiers of Fortune 2! All they did is snipe like crazy from miles away! Like literally, you can be hiding like mad with only the head of ur ***** hanging out from cover or moving like the wind and they will be just standing miles away with their back towards you and then they just 180 and repeatedly hit you in your face!! Even after u kill a few of them all the do is the same stupid **** --> just running straight to you! **** ! that is so annoying! generally my fights with them were too quick! The lasted somewhere between 2-20 seconds ! either complete clean sweep with headshots before they even fire a shot or (mostly in case of the bigger fights that happen on larger arenas) they ended with my death while i try to end the nuisance so i could enjoy the game. The other annoying part was that i could enter an arena and stand either by the entrance or in a spot where there is cover and headshot them continuously until my revolver is out and i have to switch to shotgun cause by that time the rest of the brainiacs are coming to check me out up close. ITS ANNOYING. There is no time to change strategy really... you change that once u load after you get killed once again.
ALSO smg got really ****** up. Too accurate and nades too fast and straight... cant wait to get to the point where AI will start using nades... i bet thats going to be a blast... right to the face... and my quickload button... COOL GAM
While the game could use work, it is well made. As it is right now, it shows many things that can be done with this game. Being able to customize your tools, armor, and look are great. Another fun feature is the ability to remake the world with either blocks or scenery you create.
