All in all I really enjoyed this mod, minus the hang ups already described. It had a very good start. You were not hand held through it, even though it can be frustrating not knowing what to do or how to go about it. But the ending could of been much better and left you where you started at, as it could of delved more into the story. Still though a decent mod.

One question though. The area where you find your first security guard after you have been teleported, the one with the locked door that the guard has to use the eye scanner to let you in... there are bars in the wall that can be broken and also in the adjacent room where there are explosive crates, there is a grate (two grates I believe...) that can also be destroyed. But both lead to long pipes and infinite darkness.

On the wall where the bars are/were, behind one of the pipes, appears to be a door or hatchway. That can not of been put there by mistake, yet I can not get to it. What was the meaning of that to be placed there? Some thing extra for the player to get to had it been implemented? A mistake? Something to kill the player? Just window dressing so to speak? Or am I missing a secret some where? It is hard to believe both ways to the pipe room leads to no where.

Also the map transition between the rocket area and the scientist facility, where the door has to close behind you and then you touch the keypad for the level to load, kept getting me stuck. No matter how close I was to the pad or doors, provided I could still reach the keypad, I would just freeze in place and the noise coming from the two cylinders that revolve in the next room were constant. The only way for me to pass it was to keep jumping as I touch the keypad in order for me not to get stuck.

And I had trouble launching the rocket. All objectives were met, all power was on. I was pressing every button I could see on the switch board and nothing. I kept running all around and could not find anything extra, even pressing the USE key on different consoles.

I had to of done this several times when going back to the switch board I had by mistake "rubbed" against the red button and then the rocket went off. O_o

The security guard got stuck on the steps between map transitions and I believe he was suppose to open the door to the lab with the key pad. I just fought my way through waves of grunts and assassins to find this out and now have to start over... O_o

Cutscenes are a naughty no-no in HL, and in this case one that kills you is a big no-no. Valve is against taking control away from players and here you could have avoided the deathly explosion. This mod is hard, placements of weapons where so hard to find that I didn’t find them :/
In fact one mistake and you could end up coming up against grunts without a weapon XD.
In any event its challenging, you have little health and quite a few grunts to come against which is ultimately a good level.
It also takes a unique twist to the standard HL fare in terms of storyline.
I would give it a MAYBE for those you don’t like challenges, and a PLAY IT NOW! for those who love a challenge, so I settled on PLAY IT LATER

I would say its a love/hate relationship for me.
7/10
