Played it through just now. Some comments from me.
First off: Well done.
First chapter was very atmospheric. Liked the music and the colour designs a lot, very gloomy and ultimately quite intimidating.
However, I'm going to have to stop most of my positive remarks there.
Character design was nice but lacked variation on the human side of things. I loved the suspense you get from facing a huge mob of them converging on you in a street - but when they're all exactly the same, it wears off pretty fast.
The two headcrab designs were pretty good as well - but the animations for the large creature/zombie and the fish/fast zombie were quite buggy. More often than not, I'd kill them only to have them clip through the floor.
The audio of the creatures wasn't filled in for, which made me fairly disappointed.
The environments aren't particularly challenging or detailed either. I mean, the amount of invisible walls I ran into were very frustrating. I also had to noclip to continue as there was no clear way to reach the point that activated the crane on the beach level!
I don't know. This had a good start but it deteriorated pretty fast - the lack of information on where to go, what to do, the story or why you were even bothering to do what it was you were doing just bewildered me.
The ending too - just a random camera angle and then a really loud explosion sound that went after the actual explosion had ocurred.
Ever still, keep trying I suppose.

Ha it was good all the way through.. its hard to come by a mod that has no sign of the original content while here. well you got rid of 'Most of it' there are still things that can be fixed like uhh the NPCs models. they flip out after i kill them. and also the diversity of the Innmouth folk i killed the same man so many times. and the voices should also be fixed too. but besides that this mod gets my support in going on. i hope you can make a more polished one by the time its done.
