Hi- just finished playing through this after having played your Deep Down. It took me just a little bit longer to "get into" this than Deep Down, I found some of the above-ground sequences a bit slow and quirky. For example, I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, but in the giant culvert, whre you jump across the gully, once I was down there with the Strider,it just patiently waited for me to figure out that I needed to jump. The blank wooden wall which needs something thrown through it seemed different and original, but once I'd figured it out, it seemed anticlimactic. However, once underground it became a real delight! Very much the flavor of the original Half Life, which I assume is the intent. And I DID like the jump through the plate-glass window where the Combine goon is waiting! Oh, and have I mentioned how much those fast zombies freak me out?! Very nice sequence with the water-filled tower. Again, a real HL1 feel. Faked me out, though. Thought I recognized the noise in the tunnel as an ant lion Guard and spent I-don't-even-know-how-long bringing explosive barrels up the ramp and into the tunnel. Then almost had a panic attack when I saw the Hunters! Took a few times getting through THAT! Only other criticism is that the finale was a bit anticlimactic -- seems like there should have been one final skirmish, or even some dialog with Alyx, rather than just the passage up and out. Although I will confess that when I popped my head back up into daylight (haha), and zoomed my vision to the end, yes, my heart jumped at the sight of her! Excellent work, an I hope you do more HL mods!
