It's hard to give a rating to this game, because someone could like the atmosphere and someone not. But if you look at it without personal judjments, it's a real piece of art.
It's like moving in a living painting full of sounds when listening to a relaxing (and AMAZING!) music that changes with the enviroment, the graphic style hepls a lot and it's perfect with the soundtrack.
I really suggest you to give this a try, with headphones and in a dark room. :)
Simple to learn, hard to master really suits this game.
The controls and the core aspect of its gameplay are very simple, yet the game is really hard (and I'm only playing on the first of three difficulty settings).
The core of its gameplay is this:
You control a stickman that defends itself against a whole lot of enemies. You can only attack enemies that are within (a relatively short) range, and do so by pressing either the left or right mousebutton corresponding to the side the enmeis are on.
Sounds boring? Believe me it's not.
Enemies come in much variety, and stages are just as varied.
Some stages are harder , but sometimes you just have the flow and completely obliterate the enemies.
And for that price you can't do anything wrong.
I didn't enjoyed it. I didn't enjoyed it as the mod, but as full-prize real AAA game. If it could be a game, it would be definitely in top 10 games of the year. It was a (very) long, interesing and spontaneous story. When I was playing the start of the prologue, I felt like I was playing sandbox game, later in good FPS, after that, adventure-horror like Amnesia, after survival horror, and at the end, mindfuck. This truly deserves mod of the year in the moddb. And that music...
This right here, is one of the best mods on here. Now Mesa-Fallback has you going to to black mesa but this time like Half-Life Opposing Force you play as the HECU, now the mod takes place right when the HECU got to mesa. You play as one of the HECU Marines (forget the name of the guy you play as but his name only appears at the starting text of the mod) and your job is too carry out missions order by your HQ, There's alot to talk to about this mod so I'm not going to talk about everything but I'm going to talk about some of the best and worst parts about this mod.
Pros: Weapons have been remodel and change, like the MP5 what is now call MP5 SE and it shoots slower but it does more damage then the normal MP5.
There's alot of new enemies types, remember the black ops from HL OP, well they appear in this mod and now they have robots (two types small ones and big ones). Also so Xen aliens appear in this mod too.
You get to see some of the most famous areas from half-life 1 in this mod and new areas as well, some of them are very well design.
Cons: Alot of this mod uses textures of Half-life 1, so you will have low textures and high textures
Back then when I play this mod, it never crashed on me but now after the steampipe update, it crash about every 30 mins or so
Some levels (maps) are very big and you now get lost couple of times
Final: This most is really well made with alot of new content,areas and enemies. Ever with the steampipe update making it crash every 30 mins or so, I keep playing it because its my of my fav mods out there
