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

“The last thing I remember was our train being stopped in the woods. OVERWATCH told me I was needed for questioning, so they locked me in one of those cold pods and stuck me on the next train to NOVA PROSPEKT. I can still see my WIFE watching me drift away.”

The Citizen

for Half-Life 2

The Citizen is set parallel to the events of the original Half-Life 2.

The player takes the role of an ordinary man, pushed over the edge by the oppressive regime controlling his life.

With his home trashed, his family dead, The Citizen leaves his apartment for the last time to seek new friends and a way to help the Human Resistance to smash the iron grip of the Combine. What follows is a winding tale of betrayal, determination and grief.

Many obstacles lie in his path, requiring a sleek combination of agility, stealth, intelligence, and sheer violence to overcome.

Please note, the RTSL file contains ALL the latest patches; The 1.1 version, the July 2010 patch AND the Source SDK 2013 patch. No other patches are needed.

Poll Question 069 – Full graphic settings or not at all?

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

I had an interesting discussion with a very partisan PP reader. His position was related to Crysis and is this: “If you can’t run this game at full graphic settings then you probably shouldn’t play it at all!”. So, this week’s poll question is:

Full graphic settings or not at all?
