With Operations 1942, we develop a Half-Life Singleplayer mod which is the first to have a high standard of realism and quality. All missions, the player will have to face while playing the game, will be based on historical events which will give the game additional atmosphere.
This mod is by no means bad. I remember playing it way back when it was just reskinned half-life models but now it makes use of DoD content it adds a nice degree of polish to the mod.
The difficulty is off the chart and that is why I give the mod such a high rating. A lot of people complain about it being too hard but I reckon these will be your pansy gamers who are used to modern releases which spoon feed players to an insulting degree. This offers something unique.
In the sniper mission in Normandy, I was actually using cover and flanking the enemy, rather than charging in head on. I found myself feeling genuinely tense as I navigated the corners of the ruined town.
This is a really nice change and I don't think the mod is getting the praise it deserves. If it's too hard for you, go play Call of Duty and kill off the last of your brain cells.
In some places the stealth element is a little unfair since Half-Life is not coded as a stealth game, but otherwise I genuinely enjoyed this.
The idea of the mod is cool, has nice textures and good mapping. It's, so far, the only one I know that requires real stealth for the missions, but unfortunately, it's almost useless because the shooting view and range of the soldiers it's too high. In some parts, you can turn the lights off to blind the enemies, but despite of this, they spot you and kill you in matter of seconds (the damage-taking of the player it's too high also, which is realistic), but to kill them you require quick aiming. When I played it today for the second time, I realized that never before I noticed the lack of melee weapons. This could be very useful in the game, specially for silent kills. The missions are way short, but I like the fact that anyone could create his or her own missions. Nice ambience music and menu music by the way (the last one is from Sims construction menu).
I'd recommend this mod, but only for those who really like the WWII themes and are prepared for a difficult way to use stealth. And if is there a better version, would be great a better tutorial (not one that only gives weapons away to shot immobile targets and try a useful button).
Original. (Nothing more to say)
Among the very few WW2 mods for Half-life.
The level design is superb and the custom content is top-notch, with 4 campaigns offering differing locations and objectives.
If your a fan of WW2 shooters then load up Operations 1942 on a long weekend or on your coffee break. :)
pls dont create his mod like his it makes you nervous create something new but not stealthy
I love this so much, the hard but fun gameplay just drive the entire game through. With the realism and immersion in the environments, it is beautiful graphically and gameplay wise. A well deserved 10/10.
very hard mod, but good work.
I'm very liked the mod, the only problem is that most of missions are too short, but idea and realization are very good. Also there are not so many realistic/historical singleplayer mods for Half-Life, so this one deserves that to be played.
Well, graphics are good but the scenario and weapons are better.
