    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.

    I got to weigh in. Yes it is a great mod, but a con that nobody has mentioned is the game’s real lack of long range weapons. No Gravity Gun, no Crossbow and no .357. This makes battles like the one at the end near the bridge, DAMN HARD. And too hard makes a player frustrated. And that’s not good. I’ll do a review later. It will score high, but lose points for the lack of balence in weapons.

    Ok, the mod is polished, and it plays well. The enviroments are good, and change up nicley throughout the game. Lightning, texture, all of that looks pro. The battles are very fun as well, and the author throws some different challenges at you during the game. Some areas like the big reddish factory is such a beautiful eye-candy event, I wanted to stay in there and hang out for a while! Really, this game feels like a Valve production. Even the audio is nice, using different music than Valve’s for a nice change up.

    The one drawback (as I already mentioned) is the lack of weapon balence. Nothing for long range battles, no crossbow or 357 mag. Not even a Gravity Gun to combat the combine when they throw grenades at you long range. So when in bigger long range battles like the several battles near the bridge, the player (to survive) has no choice but to stay back, take lot’s of damage, and use the 9mm pistol as a long range combator…and really that is no fun. Yes you have the Combine Pulse rifle, but that will run out of ammo quick. SMG nades run out fast as well, and really are not very good long range. So really it will come down to the pistol…just to survive.

    This is a great mod, and deserves a place at the top. I’ll give it a 88, but it could of had a 98 if the weapons problem was fixed. Shame.

    Got a WOW effect with this one, at least, for the intro sequence which is very well done.
    You are a resistant posted in City 17 about 300 days before Freeman’s incursion. But the Combine are looking for you and your team and you must reach White Forest.
    The action is good alternating combat and quiet at the right rhythm while the difficulty increase till you meet the Hunter. Mapping is excellent like a professional work. The parking map and the final one were really impressive.

    Hope the team will release other mods cause masterpiece like this are too rare.

    Finally got around to finishing this mod.

    It’s a fun mod to play and just for sheer length it’s impressive. The environments are well presented and the level design is well thought out with lots of space reused in smart ways.
    It’s challenging in some places but always fairly well balanced.

    The no flashlight or sprint really got on my nerves.

    I just have one beef with this mod… I’ve seen all this before. There’s nothing here that’s new with the exception of the clever Hunter recharge thingy.

    With all the effort and work put into this mod, really you could just go back to the original HL2 and it’s episodes and get a similar playing experience but with more polish.

    Play it but don’t expect anything to blow your mind.

    Very nice mod!
    The atmosphere was great, great combination of dark, spooky areas and action parts.
    The environment looked very realistic and fit the atmosphere perfectly, and the little details made the whole mod just more likable.
    The train ride was fun, great surroundings and mapping work done there.
    The canals/underground part was also nice, the level design was concentrated on one point, and you had to work your way to your goal, everything looked small, but it was fun to finally reach the elevator.
    My favourite part was the administration/office building of the warehouse complex with the snipers and the combine raid.
    Everything looked just right, and I could easily find my way out without having trouble or getting lost.
    The ending was a bit disappointing, I expected a bit more than a dark mine and a fading screen, even a door leading inside the base would’ve worked, I wanted to see a deserted, abandoned missile base as a fitting finale for the fight, not just a dark mine and some old guy. But that was the only bad about this mod, and I hope to see more of the creators in the future!

    Finally, I want to say that the music was absolutely amazing, even if it was a bit short sometimes. It brought me into the right feeling, and the (unfortunately very short) variation of “Triage At Dawn” at the beginning of the last chapter brought me into the right mood for the last part. Great job :)

    Please excuse any spelling or grammar mistakes, since English isn’t my first language ;)

    Having over a year pass after testing this I felt it was time to actually play it. I noticed not all issues were addressed, nonetheless this is a quality mod in so many ways.
    Unfortunately at the time of playing I didn’t write anything down as the site was on pause, so hopefully I will come back with a full review in a short while after maybe even replaying it cus it’s just that great and there’s a lot to be mentioned.. hope I won’t end up repeating what everyone else already said.

    OK they finally fixed it and released a newer version on moddb.

    The soundtrack strikes me as very good, even from the first chapter, which starts off with believable environments. Voice acting is also top notch. Loved how even the vent breaks the linear pattern and how the level is peppered with small puzzles and you feel like a real infiltrator.
    In 2nd chapter I remember an elevator with actual weights, now that added to realism and the train ride is still a hoot.
    G-Man makes his appearance in 3rd chapter. I still think that mounted gun has a bad placement in the fast zombie area. And G-Man honors us with his presence again! aaaaand the beautiful indoors in that factory is still breathtaking. Too bad I found a light bug in that area, right in the first room to the left (the room is dark or lit depending on the angle you sit in), no biggie, I still contacted them about it.
    In the final chapter, the long range pistol is still the best wep against the last combine and that’s boring, but the ending wraps everything up pretty well and still leaves us wanting more.

    I was glad I could play this little gem again as I got nostalgic from listening to its marvelous soundtrack as any other mp3s.

    Playing time is a guess, but I’m a cautious explorer.
    I enjoyed this mod very much. The opening sequence where you are trying to escape the clutches of the Combine has a real sense of urgency and danger. Difficulty level was right for me, apart from two scenes. These were the hoard of fast zombies when you’re waiting for a door to rise and the hunter combat. The hunter ‘protoype’ was a good idea for a boss fight. Play it now.
