    Very good mod with one but very funny weapon: THE HATCH. You can throw it, this way of attack is powerful and practical. You’ll love kill the new soldiers enemies with this! (they use Crossbows and a shotgun, performing the double shoot OMFG!).

    The mapping also is very good, with many different locations and new enemies in the deppending where you go (Example: new xenians in XEN). And theres lovely humoristic sequences.

    The same deffect to Todesangst 1: too short!

    Good: Cool name; great idea that is well executed; nice new content.
    Bad: Nothing amazingly spectacular; new models are slightly modified originals.

    Review:
    Another good mod. I guess everything from Germany is good. Good cars, good engineering, good HL mods…yeah. This is a good mod. The story is nice, all the items are placed logically throughout the maps and as a bonus, and there are two episodes! The only things I didn’t about is that the campaigns were somewhat short and there weren’t many things too spectacular about it. But anyway, here’s the story: you are Gordon Freeman, and after coming back from Xen, you are practically a hero.

    However, your boss, Dr. Jack Newell, an expert chaos theory mathematician and Director of Black Mesa R&D, thinks otherwise. He doesn’t like you for all that you’ve become. In other words, he’s jealous. So you, the intrepid Gordon Freeman, must stop Newell from unleashing the Xen beasties into the wild of Earth. Good story, eh?

    Play It Now!

    Among the very top best of HL1 custom games, quality mapping with a good balance of gameplay with maybe the voice acting being the only weak part of the mod. This aside it’s a most play for all HL1 fans.

    Play It Now!

    No description this time, just saying this a class of it’s own!
    Many liked part 1 but to me this one is an epic, unique mod! Go play it!

    Pro’s:
    -Pretty neat story presented in cinematic cutscenes (+subtitles!), combined with some humour
    -Very good leveldesign this time, sweet maps with nice layouts and lighting – sometimes boring
    -New textures, prefabs, sounds, music, throwable hatchet, customized models (NPC’s and also enemies), etc.
    -Very long playtime – about 2-3 hours (not sure, can be even more)
    -Now very good balancing in combat – plenty of ammo but tough mercenaries, aliens
    -Some pretty good scripts
    -Quite much variety about locations (labs, space station, outdoor areas, etc.)
    -A few, but easypuzzles
    -Useable stationary twin turret (against helicopter)
    -Secret areas (five in total)
    -Specific, short hazard course incl. bonus area (access code can be solved during finding secret areas ingame: each time finding a secret you’ll get a new digit – by the way, noclip will not function to access the bonus room in the hazard course!)
    -Fair placed auto-saves

    Con’s:
    -Sometimes ugly textures / not very detailed rooms, being boxy or just boring-looking
    -Again too less and too easy puzzles
    -Mercenaries only use shotgun, no one has the assault rifle – BUT sometimes they have a crossbow (!)
    -Some longer walkways
    -Deadly script if advancing to fast (at least one, can’t remember)
    -Some minor bugs (elevator, ..)
    -Can get confusing sometimes (space station for example)

    Single Player First Person Shooter Maps and Mods for Half-Life 1, 2 and Episodes 1, 2 and 3

    Rare these days is the Half-Life pack with a reasonable and interesting plot. But Todesangst 2: der echte Feind (T2DEF) continues the strong plot and gameplay from the excellent Todesangst, and in most ways surpasses the original.

    The scope of T2DEF in comparison to the original is much greater. While Todesangst was essentially a map pack for Half-Life, T2DEF is a full-blown modification, including new weapons, enemies, music, customized voice acting, and a lot of new code that allows for some pretty neat tricks (such as mp3 support, fog, and some cool camera systems that you will get a chance to use). This time instead of making a map pack alone, Daryn “Peppyfool” Waite has both expanded his capabilities and added a supporting team to help build T2DEF into the full mod that it is. The hard work of the whole team paid off: Todesangst 2 is a lot of fun to play, and is certainly one of the very best Half-Life packs to come out recently.

    First, if you haven’t played the original Todesangst, go download it right now and play it before you even think about playing this pack. OK, well it’s not totally necessary, but it will sure help you in understanding some aspects of the plot, since T2DEF is a well-conceived and interesting continuation of the original.
