I love this mod. I love how you're technically FORCED to do the house parts but cleverley done so. When you finish the prolouge you can't use the truck anymore so you can load but it wouldn't have any point (also wouldn't feel the same) but you feel like you haven't finished the game. (I use game cause this mod is product worthy) You feel Incompleteness and that makes you wanna do the mysteries and scares of the house. (So much that I'm doing seperate Let's Plays of the prolouge and the house so far you have succeeded in every scare. In case you wanna see it (currently isn't released yet) My channel is called jeremythellama1 on youtube) I really think if you keep this up Valve may come by and let you join their team. (if you haven't already been invited) I actually am so scared that I won't continue the let's unless i'm with my 2 friends. ;_; But I can't be completely nice unfortunately. The soldiers are WAY to weak and they're swat so theres armor versus terrorists that are less likely to have stronger Armor than swat who are made for cases that Cops can't do. I would REALLY love to have another shotgun. I think that a melee weapon would be good aswell. The foot is stronger than the shotgun instant death to terrorists (and zombies) but I LOVE it at the same time It's fun to run and jumpkick them and they just FLY to the other side of the room XD. Now time for the house. The basement door (In the house) you can get stuck in the door (around the stairsin the house and not outside of the house) something that annoys me is when you wake up it does a bit of the scene then you just teleport standing up and when you try to move you have a stroke effect back to where you were standing then you save adn then you can move. Is there anyway to get in the chest of his dead wife. What's his wife's name? Is it answered? the intro to the prolouge (where it tells us who made the mod) takes a LONG time but it's SO good at the same time. I can't wait for the next update Keep it up.
Very intense and moves so smoothly throughout the prologue. The suspensed and unexpected twists and turns on every corner of the house, just building up tension, cause you never know what...Horror awaits to give you an extradinary scare that gets you jumpin with the feeling of doing than just more than crap your pants. -CrazyDarkDemonMonkey
From shooting to minor horror puzzle solving this mod had everything I wanted on the day I installed it. What made it more fun was hanging out with Mxth and commenting on it as I played. He pointed out several things I did wrong. For starters, drop the sniper rifle. I like to keep as a many items as possible, but don't worry if you drop it you will find a better weapon to replace it with.
I played the mod atleast three times and on my last run through I asked Mxth to give me dual pistols. Give weapon_custom20 Oh, yeah... You punks feelin lucky? Now if only I coudl get him to add donuts in the break room.
As I said above the mod is half action and half puzzle solving horror. The horror part was pretty scary as Mxth has put more thought into scares than those people who make Dead Space (totally not scared of that). The puzzle are simple collect item and then figure out how to use it and on what.
At enemy time when your done with the puzzle and horror part you can jump in your vehicle and cutscene your way into the action part of the mod! This concept alone is cool to me. The action is so action packed you're gonna need a itching trigger finger to keep up with the hordes of dudes you just need to put into a early grave.
Hmm... down side is you don't get to set anyone on fire or kill zombies or jaint robots. Sigh, atleast he has a cool ending that leads you into the next game.
3 points for story, 3 points for gameplay, 3 points for music, and 1 point for CHEAT CODES! Dual Pistols for da-winz!
Arguably one of the best mods I have played! Possibly the best! It has its issues and a few bugs here and there, but I expect that those will be worked out in future updates and patches. Biggest issue is that sometimes stuff isn't as straight forward as I would expect (but this isn't often) and sometime the cutscenes are clunky. The voice acting is hit and miss, but for the most part its average.
However, the gameplay and customized graphics (like new skins and such) are amazing! It was so much fun to play! It was intense at time and by the time I finished the prologue I was getting creeped out. It sets a great atmosphere and leaves me wanting the next installment to come quickly! Can't wait!
Overall, a well deserved 10/10 so far!
