Probably one of the best Half-Life mods so far. If you like the classic feel of old Half-Life mods, you'll love this. Instead of using the same old Black Mesa environment, the creator converted everything to an Arctic theme. Everything is remodeled and reskinned to fit the ice theme, including weapons. For example, instead of the Crowbar you get an Ice Pick, and the Soldiers use winter jackets and masks.
Combat can be tough, but balanced by the more accurate and powerful weapons in your arsenal, an Ace Pick, "Ice" Grenades, a Heckler & Koch G3, a white RPG and a Beretta.
There's no real developed story, but that's not a problem. It really feels like those old Half-Life mods, where you simply have to blast your way to freedom without any complex story, which gives it a good old-school feeling!
I totally recommend this mod for people who like classic Half-Life gameplay, mixed with a new interesting environment!
Fantastic mod with fantastic world! This is the best amateur events especially made by One Man!!! There are 100s new units to play about with and they are all balanced. Each unit reflects each side. For example, you can now make Cars for Queen which makes her more effective for speed. Another example is that you can play with monsters Aliens faction! The games speed has been adjusted so it's faster paced. You can set up a game much quicker and get into the action!
This mod is Great! But I think that Modder must to restore the "General's Challenge"!!!
Thank you very much Scanarri! Good luck in all your endeavors and creativity!
While this is my favourite mod on EAW, this is also one of the most frustrating mods as well.
-A LOT of ships from both cannon, non cannon and legends sources.
-Addition of new factions makes playing the game seem more "star warsy"
Now lets get to the frustrating parts.
-This game is VERY VERY unstable, expect it to crash like the windows 8 version of internet explorer.
-it is as unbalance as it is unstable. I defeated large fleets with only 3 EX-F star destroyers.
-More bugs than an anthill.
While most people would stop reading at the unstable bit and download a better mod.
Im more forgiving with the Cons because i was gaming in an age where they were a common part of the gaming culture.
But what i don't find amusing is the dev's attitude towards criticism. It not only reflects the views of the EAW modding community, but the future of this mod as well.
He bans people who points out flaws bugs and even those who show slight distaste for the mod, showing no integrity.
And with no bug checks or testing, the dev is just going to add more content and more bugs to the game, eventually rendering it unplayable.
In a quick TL;DR summary, Don't waste your internet quota on this mod unless you are patient and forgiving of bugs and glitches.
For all you spoiled jerks:
Just because this mod was discontinued and never released, does not mean this mod is bad, the core design and idea and quality put into the mod is amazing, and saying this is bad because you were impatient just makes you a total selfish loser. Not only that, is that most of the mod's ideas and mechanics are being RECYCLED into the other mod: Deep Impact — a mod that isn't just to make 'zero hour better'
this mod is cool its kinda better than missing information's e3 maps and it even include the oicw the right version and it replaces the pulse rifle just as i wanted it to do. and it has the e3 sounds but i edit the script for smg and oicw so that they use pistol ammo because i feel like i'm playing e3 and i edit the clip for the smg to make it 30 because e3. also i use a console command called zoom_toggle which lets me zoom and shoot while i zoom i wish this mod had that kind of feature. this is a great mod and you should try it.
Well i was really disappointed for this mod not because the unit but the mod does not work to me i could not play this
When i try to run the game it said please insert yuri's revenge CD
I don't have a cd because i just download the pirate version of this if you could fix it i will give it at 10/10
Sadly i am disappointed with this mod. After all this hype and (high!!?!? #@) scores i was expecting something good but... no. Firs of all it lacks atmosphere very badly. There is too many "LOLs" and "*****" and sexual themes. It felt very childish and premature. After couple of quests i wanted to uninstall this crap and start with the fresh install. To create quality video game there is some proper IQ required. And this chick date-quest thing, really??! (I am talking about the clan mod thing only, not the other like arsenal mod or patch which are great!)
One of the best mods I have ever seen for Deus Ex. Improves textures, some models, it even allows to choose renders (that means 60 fps in Deus Ex for me, and 60 fps means 10/10) and resolution of the screen and run perfectly on modern PCs. Also, no bugs and no crashes!
