Hi Craig ;
Here is my review about the game "The Gate II" :
Craig the maps are very detailed, and i love the feeling of being playing a film. I like very much of your ideas, the action you did with the vehicles and the lot of models and textures into the mod.
Overall i miss the new weapons the mod was telling to have from the first and the cut content like the peenemonde maps, etc. What was a little boring for me is the area51, was too long for my likes, because i prefer and love the open areas and illuminated at all.
The script is good too.
I missed the song i compose for the game, and the possibilities of easy translation to other languages.
- Action, gameplay, detailed maps and lot of new models and textures.
- Weapons, cut content, the translation possibilities and the area51 is too long for my taste.
Overall i want to say that you had done a VERY GOOD JOB mate.
My calification is 8.5 / 10.
Love the concept of this mod, however there are a lot of things that need to be ironed out like people being able to Usian Bolt across the map at stupid speeds before I manage to pull off 2 shots from my bow. Guns need to be balanced, upkeep is too high and you can become broke easily but if these little things are sorted out i'll rate higher :) 6/10 for time being
This Game Is ******* Scary As **** Like I Get Scared At The Home Menu, What I Like About This Game And Like Most Horror Games Is That It get's You When You Least Think It Will, In The Custom One If You Have The Artificial intelligence Maxed Out That's When You Can Tell What I Mean When You Close The Door The Bear Or What Ever it Is Get You And That's ******* Terrifying Because That's **** Get You Like Out Of No Where, I Like The Game's Atmosphere And You Also Did A Good Job On The Sounds In The Game.
I couldn't finish this. I could not.
This mod is littered with content from other great mods, such as Resistance and Liberation and that one spaceship mod that had puzzles and was really interesting and was never totally finished (I don't remember the name, but you get the point). It turned me off knowing that my other favorite Half-Life 2 mods had content that was used without permission (I am assuming this as I saw no credits to the original authors, correct me if I'm wrong).
The health packs do not work. I had to turn god mode on because the health packs stopped working after you go into the sewers to meet the guy. The gameplay is extremely boring. Run. Shoot. Dead. Bleh.
The story was nothing special. You can predict what would happen next easily, and there wasn't any very good character development. It is extremely important in this story due to you wanting to save Anna because reasons.
The levels were good looking... and that's about it. Good looking. I had to use noclip countless times to see what I was doing wrong, usually it's because of a very delayed trigger script or just a broken trigger script.
The music is wonderful because it's by John Williams. It's copyrighted, so I would not recommend recording the mod. The music scores are not well placed though. I feel like the more "whimsical" pieces were used in the places where there should be just an ambiance, or a surprising fast-paced piece.
Do not download this mod. It is an absolute waste of 14 gigabytes.
Wow the mod really dissapointed me, so many bugs that i can't even play the game and the crappy arse start music too. The map is littelary Calardia not Europe, uniforms crap, i saw a guard wearing women clothing and that made me laugh how pathetic this mod is, and before you start raging and saying that this still alpha. I want to say i've seen less bugs in pre-alpha's. So i give it a 3/10 because the only good thing is that they are working on it i will change the rating IF it gets better than this piece of worthless crap.
