Description

This mod is an attempt to recreate the 2003 Beta style of Half Life 2. This project is similar to my previous work "Beta Aesthetics", but about a different era of development, which was in 2003.

Okay, so.
The installation method is extremely easy, and I'm glad it tells you how to install it in a txt file. When I booted up the game, it didn't look too promising so I had low expectations.
I click on new game and start up Point Insertion, and I was disappointed to see no changes to the G-Man but hey, can't have everything.
Everything in the train station looked great (apart from Breen's model, maybe change it to the Consul?) and it was until I made my way to the plaza.
The Citadel looked so out of place, there was no fog surrounding its peak which made it feel less-immersive. I also think the height of it was scaled down, looks so short now. I decide to skip to Highway-17 and it looks pretty good, even the antlions got a change and I adore it. I kill a few antlions, headcrabs and zombies then I find my first combine soldier. I took them out easily and I after killing two others, I go to check the corpse for details. But turns out they disappeared? I shook it off and moved on.
I continue down the road to find three more soldiers battling it out with antlions. I kill them off, move onto the soldiers and they're gone? Clearly something is wrong here.
I find Colonel Cubbage and... he's just a regular citizen. Nothing to tell me that this man means business.

But anyway, this is a decent mod. Could use some work and I have a couple of suggestions such as changing the citadel, making c17 have a green atmosphere and loads of fog. Other than that, however, I did enjoy most of what I played.
I'd rate this mod a good ol' 7-10. Has some bugs, but great effort. Excited to see any updates!
