Best and most immersive game I've ever played. Really. I don't play during the daytime anymore because I'll waste the whole day and, subsequently, feel like a disgusting human being. That's how much **** this game rocks out with. The learning curve isn't as bad as it's made out to be--honestly, a tileset will alleviate most of it. But, I won't write yet ANOTHER review for the game, as it eats into my evening of actual playing time. If you're really interested, check out the extensive wiki or bay12games.com. Conversely, download the damn thing. Lazy Newb Pack isn't my fave, but it comes with tilesets and will get you started. The only add-on other than a tileset that I heartily suggest is Soundsense. Look it up and download it. It makes it much, much easier to understand what goes down in the game when it finally hits the fan.
First: I'd rate this mod 7,5 but since there are karma trolls in here, I'll add up my rating to 10 to do my best to negate the trolling.
The mod is nice, levels and graphics are solid and good, only thing that bothers me are the fact that the antlions mostly march to you in a line and you just shoot them down then. The mod builds up a tight atmosphere, but never manages to have any highlight moments, as the storyline is so thin that you can roughly even feel for the reason why you are here and what you are doing.
