Underhell is a Source Engine game developed by the Underhell Team in collaboration with We Create Stuff. Underhell Chapter 1 requires ONLY Source SDK Base 2007 installed. No Source game is required.
Even though this game currently only contains the prologue, it is quite obvious that the story is the top priority for this game. Never before have I played a game that contains just as much story as game-play, and just as much scares as much action.
The House is so far the only place that contains the scares, with several mysteries to uncover, and dreams to sleep through to uncover a mysterious story that probably means more than what is ahead of you in the next chapters.
The thrills and horror only go so deep for me, as I practically skipped the scary parts because I was to scared of my life to even continue forth with anything involving the House. So I just grabbed the keys, my gear, and moved my *** onto the Prologue story. Unfortunately once I made it past the Prologue I wanted to see more of the House. That didn't do too well, as I nearly soiled myself.
The action and game-play itself on another hand is absolutely superb in almost every way. Your firefights are gripping and really demand duck n' cover instead of run and gun. It sounds repetitive, but the developer of the game really managed to make the battles intense no matter what the situation at hand, reloading, shooting, taking cover, either way you're getting pounded with lead in a very tense and uncomfortable manner, which pumped my adrenaline A LOT.
This game is highly recommended to anyone who is looking for good shooting, scares, thrills, chills, twists and turns, and one hell of a good story. I give it a 10/10.

Underhell is one of those mods that comes along every so often, that makes you look at retail and remember when they used to make good games like this...and saddens you a little that the industry can't turn out gold like this these days. In a world of MMO's, Call of Duty FPS's, we get a classic game with a good story, incredible atmosphere, and depth to boot. Fun gameplay on top of that? This is a lovechild, and that is what makes it amazing. This is the result of someones vision come to life. They…
