The true method of knowledge is experiment. So, strapped to the underside of a stolen Combine helicopter, you're part of my latest scientific investigation. Objective: To infiltrate and observe this peculiar little island a few miles off shore, its heart burrowed out by our ever-loving benefactors...
This blew me away. The story was vague but sortof interesting, however thats not what got me. The atmosphere and design of this game nails the Half Life 2 style on the head, and even in some cases IMPROVES it! This was great fun, brought back the Half Life 2 feeling both graphically and gameplay wise. 10/10, would play again.
The Minerva series, and Someplace Else, are one of the best executed mods I have ever played. The level design of Minerva is spot on and the gameplay very fluid. The mysterious story also kept me playing. If you are going to play a HL2 mod, this one should be high on your list!
One of the best mods around. The maps and their architecture are top notch, gameplay is stellar, story was simple, yet sucks you in quickly. The simplicity of it was the main reason why it worked so well. All acts felt suspenful and very opressing, the atmosphere was isolating and cold.
This mod is an absolute classic. By the way, this mod has most amazing OST I have heard in a mod. Maps looks great and well polished, gameplay is sellar, story and the mood are just right. If you've haven't played it yet, I say, you're missing a lot
