A few hours after Adrian Shephard and his squat got scattered allover the Black Mesa Complex, headquarter sent a rescue team to search the lost crew.
I haven't felt compelled to give a modification such a high rating in a long time but man, this mod completely deserves it. At first, you might think this is just another Black Mesa mod, but it goes far beyond the typical "original character" at Black Mesa.
For starters, this mod has some of the best mapping I have ever seen in a GoldSrc modification. Almost every map feels like a work of art that stands out on its own. One unique aspect about this mod is how brushwork was used almost exclusively and was animated as much as possible. This man has done things with brush models I never even thought about. Not to mention the intricate connection of all the maps. Essentially, not one tiny detail was left out. Anything you think should move, did move. Any reaction you think the characters should have, the author made them do it.
The gameplay was alright, there was some simple gun play thrown with some interesting puzzles. There was enough variation between exciting scenery and fighting to keep you involved throughout the whole mod.
Some of the complaints I'd have are the voice acting could've been a little better, and there were some bugs that got in the way. For instance, I think the usage of Opposing Force's original dll brought back the dreaded, "standing on an elevator and getting stuck" bug. There were a few other annoying bugs, but nothing I would drag on about.
Overall, this mod took what I would normally consider a boring and done-to-death scenario, and brought a lot of originality and inspiring content to the table. A must play.

Allright, just finished it :) WOW, what a wonderfull Mod.... i really really enjoyed the mod and it had a lot of nice ideas and somehow a fresh unique look. I cant really say that i found something that i really dislike , mostly normal hl1 bugs like elevator stuck or not moving scientists :D Some buttons were so small i didnt saw them on the first time. Too the "Cards" are super small :) maybe add a sprite so you can see them =) *Spoiler* The Rock you need to shoot, i nearly started to cheat there…
