Point of View (POV) is a new single player Half-Life MOD where you will play as a Alien Slave named Xonxt. You will have new weapons to use, be able to explore new and old areas of Back Mesa and of Xen in a MOD with a story that will allow you to (re)visit areas of Half-Life, Opposing Forces and Azure Sheep but, this time, with a different point of view. Humans will try to kill you, xen forces will ignore or attack you and you will have to survive to all this. Friends will now be your enemies and enemies your friends now that you play as a Alien Slave...

What a fantastic mod. It is so professionally done, you'd believe Valve themselves made it. Easily one of the best Half-Life mods I have ever played. It has everything necessary to make a good Half-Life mod: A good plot, some excellent new features, new weapons (creatures), plenty of action around each corner and loads of twists and turns in the story.

There is really very little you can fault about this mod as it's near perfection; I also liked the new thought-log feature, I'm surprised it wasn't done in the original Half-Life itself.

The maps were brilliant, even better, unlike this mods brother, Azure Sheep, there are only a few long corridors and hall-ways to run through, but even those had some surprises around the corner which was a relief.

Out of the entire mod, only two things bugged me. The first one is the lack of a crosshair for the standard Vortigaunt weapon, it was extremely difficult to aim and hit targets correctly due-to the lack of one. In some cases, missing your target a few times isn't a bad thing as it adds to the difficulty factor, but trying to take out targets as small as Sentry Guns, Rats, Snarks and Chumtoads was nearly impossible on the first, second or even third try. It would of been nice if there were a few extra creatures in your armory to chose from too, but non-the-less, everything you did get did their job.

Secondly, as already mentioned, there are some parts of the mod where you just find yourself running through long passage-ways with not much happening, however, there are very few places like that unlike in Azure Sheep, so the score isn't hurt too much.

Overall: A brilliant mod, definitely has my recommendation to play, whether you're a Half-Life fan or not. Aiming can be difficult with the weaponry you are given, but the brilliant game-play makes up for that entirely.
