Atmosphere was extremely tense. You felt vulnerable the entire time. The moments where you did get trapped in rooms with the smoke outside were in my opinion the scariest because you had to wait for the light to go back, but the smoke continued to try to get inside, but couldn't. The gameplay was spectacular, the level design was superb, and the fact that it was entirely done WITHOUT any sort of coding is incredible. Especially the custom inventory and objectives. The only complaint I have is the ending, which was ****, I'm sorry to say. I mean, come on. Really? You couldn't have at least tried to make it longer? Like, I don't know, actually finishing the vehicle? Maybe attempting to find another outpost, but getting stuck because of the black snow? Pleh.
TL;DR, the mod is excellent, worthy of a 9/10 for it's intense and helpless atmosphere, fantastic level design, and superb mod mechanics, just the ending leaves something to be desired for sure.
Highest Rated (23 agree) 10/10
Black Snow NAILS atmosphere and makes you feel vulnerable and alone. As a part of a rescue team dispatched to a research complex in the middle of the tundra. You end up separated, chased and all but you remain. With dark hallways and the ominous presence of something unknown lurking in the shadows and no way to defend yourself, the true sense of making you feel afraid is done right. You must avoid a darkness out to kill you by using light, and solve many puzzles that will test your ability to think…
