Nuclear Winter is a single player mission for Half-Life Opposing Force. It comprises 29 new maps plus a ton of new scripted scenes, models, artwork, character voices, sound effects and music. Nuclear Winter was recently re released with Steam support. Opposing Force is no longer required. In the early 21st century the U.S. fight several anti-terrorist campaigns in the Middle East. Bickering in the world community over the morality of these campaigns eventually leads to the withdrawal of China and Russia from the U.N. Even NATO is divided and it soon becomes obvious that America's only real support comes from Great Britain. In 2009 the league of Arab nations invade and occupy Israel.

Nuclear Winter is very amazing.
Storyline: The plot of the Mod was great. It starts of normal before it becomes horrifying, just like Paranoia. Because Radiation is my best favourite hazard, it's a very interesting way to involve Radiation or Nuclear based events in Mods or Video Games.
Voice Acting: To be honest, The voice over's are great but some of them are a bit hard to hear.
Voice Effects: Vlad (while speaking in the microphone) sounds great but it's a bit hard to hear on what He's saying.
Locations: Because I'm interested in Video Games that contains Zombie or Mutant apocalypses, the maps that are infested with Mutants are very great. The Locations that contains Black Operations is great.
Scenes: In the part where You first confront Black Op Tanks, The Black Soldier's death was a bit laughable. In certain scenes of the Mod, it shows a photo of a black-haired Woman named Xena. Because I can't hear anything they're saying, It's a bit hard to understand how they pronounce Her name. Not to mention, these scenes are a bit laughable also.
