Dissolution is a science fiction, single-player mod for Half-Life 2 that mixes adventure and action game-play. Set in the year 2089, in a universe dominated by a mega corporate entity, Xterrier, the player awakes in a hidden lab to the voice of the mysterious Wilson. Guided by Wilson, the player must make their way through the ravaged Xterrier 581c colony, making use of any and all resources they can get their hands on in order to survive, all the while attempting to piece together the events leading to the colony's collapse and their own identity.

I relay like the voice acting especially on that mustache guy that started the mind corruption and the level design is good. sure there's not much stuff in the corridors but that's fine since its going for that futuristic look (like portal). The only complains I've got was that nothing tells you that the bottles give you HP and that got me killed several times. i found out by touching one by accident. That and the weapon animations. however i still prefer poorly animated guns over the default hl2 guns in a mod.
