Re-enter the Half Life Universe and revisit City 17 in the time before Freeman, in this fan made single-player mod. The Resistance is threatened by a decisive Combine assault, and as a wanted Resistance member you will need to fight to escape from the Combine's clutch. At the same time, a mysterious force is working towards ends unknown...
An absolute masterpiece for the community we have here!
The mod starts calm, with a nice escape scene but quickly starts to get fully flexible.
The mapping is excellent, not very often that you see such a polished mapping in a mod, all areas where visually extremely attracting (especially the last level, I was just WOW), the lighting and the texturing is perfect and all the different areas are fit together in a nice and steady way.
The gameplay was interesting, while you miss some certain weapons, like the RA or grenades, it was very enjoyful, which is mostly cause of the very good enemy placement and some small scripted scenes. Also the areas in which you are fight are very interesting. Then end battle was really nice and I loved that little guy ^^
The puzzles were all very clear and intuitive, never had the feeling of having no clue about where to go, but also was never disappointed by too easy puzzles.
The music appears not often, but is well done. Only I missed a music part where you have to wait for the garage door to open up and defend against the coming screamers.
All in all, perfectly polished, perfectly playable and especially perfectly enjoyable mod, everyone should play it.
Highest Rated (10 agree) 10/10
This mod is absolutely fantastic. It's wonderfully put together, with Valve-like quality. Truly one of the best Half-Life 2 story tie-ins since Dangerous World.
I hope to see more from this team.
