Half life is not just a game to me, Half-Life was the very first FPS I ever played It has effected my perception of what is a good game.
Half life produces a amount of adrenalin other games fail to produce.
Half-Life achieves this through a level of immersion and action that is just phenomenal.
Despite it's age I would play this game any day,
Alright, my review on this.
Firstly, for a first custom story this was nothing special. I checked around a little bit in the first room. A few messed up textures in there with poorly placed roof, but its nothing too serious. And the key... It might be just me that was being stupid or something, maybe threw the key around somewhere. But I found it eventually, after running out of oil and having the gamma on 2.
Then the storage. It looked actually interesting as you moved on to the foggy areas. A bothering thing though, the scares. I know they are nothing but sounds, but they are played where the player is located. I would recommend playing the sounds somewhere in a far distance, where the player can feel startled as something is following him instead.
Now, what really made me give this rating was the Archives. That nearly looked like a beta level. It wasn't properly done either. The Brute and Kaernk was both bugged and I know why. There are no extra pathnodes that allows the Brute to search. There were only the important pathnodes that were added. I literally had to walk up to the Brute and make him chase me through the door to make him understand. Then I had to lure him to break down the door, because I was pretty sure if I died, the door wouldn't have automatically broken down or started another brute to do the job.
Well, this is your first custom story and I can accept that it is not perfect, but if you can improve on your next one, I would play it again.
I have played well over 25 hours of this mod, and just to re-enforce what i've already left in my comment on the mod page, the time and effort of this mod really shows, everything kinda just clicks into place to give and end result of a professional looking mod, and many hours of replay-ability well worth the title of 'Star trek armada 3'
First the positive - I love that you incorporated pretty cool voice acting, that are done really good as a matter of fact. I'd like to see more VA like this in any other future mods!
The story is OK, and I liked it.
The negative - As far as the gameplay goes, I felt throughout the game that it was decent, but in the end the MOD is really easy, maybe too easy. No challenges, no tough brain tinkering...
I liked the voice acting BUT... the "music" is soooooo lame and soooo annoying, that I was actually going through files and settings to turn it off!! And I am a musician myself, I know what I'm talking about. How can you play Maj chords in an environment where blood needs to freeze from music?! Oh, and the mistakes in every single song... Plus - the violin is 20-30% off with the tuning, gave me (negative) "nightmares" (I actually finished music school - violin).
And dude - NO LIGHT SOURCE?! OK, it had it's cool moments, but never, ever do a MOD for Amnesia without a lantern/flashligh...
I haven't finished this mod only because it had a really bad bug.
-I was in the lower water area and I was in the machine room. I had put everything in the machine (coal new cogs) and the water monster came up in the machine room! I know for a fact it wasn't supposed to do that because there wasn't any water!
-I might be mistaken, but after you fix the machine, the water level is supposed to drop correct?
-I like how big the map is, but don't exaggerate it. I thought there were too many room and I felt as if I was going in complete useless rooms. I know that's like the whole point of a game but this one had a couple too many unnecessary rooms.
- I really like the story line. It's a definite one of a kind story!
- The atmosphere literally makes me want to have unlimited amounts of oil. It's creepy!
- The monsters are put in the right timings and some were definitely unexpected!
- Right amount of oil and such
- Good puzzles
I thoroughly enjoyed this brilliantly made mod! Possibly fix those bugs and I might just give you a 10/10! ;) I don't give those out very often. :) Great job!
