    There doesn’t seem to be ANY fighting or action in this mod. You’ll need a lot of patience and the ability to press lots of buttons at various times to progress.

    I didn’t give it an AVOID IT recommendation because that seemed a little unfair. Imagine Russian speakers giving great mods a lower rating just because they didn’t speak English.

    You might enjoy the challenge of finding ways to progress, but you won’t enjoy the voice acting.

    A proper walkthrough might be needed if the later levels have something worth seeing.

    I will try to continue the mod and may even stream it for all your “Frustration Freaks”!

  2. Let me explain some moments of the mod that you could better understand its idea. The main feature of the mod is a foul language used for the voice acting. And this foul language is very-very foul 🙂 But the author of the voice acting consider it funny and call that method “Foul language therapy”. I must confess it’s really funny sometimes. Of course, if you have corresponding life experience. I mean, you at least heard these words before and can understand them. Because some sentences are very flowery. Besides, some voice actors speak like well-known political figures or make mention of those figures. For example, Dr.Rosenberg(the man standing in front of the camera near New Year tree) congratulates the personnel of Black Mesa using a voice of ex-president of the USSR M.Gorbachev who did it every 31th of December. Here are some more jokes. The 7-our war had place between UN and american scientists because Gordon Freeman and Dr.Cleiner were too hard on drugs running an experiment on Anomalous materials resulted in Unforeseen Consequences. Barney Calhoun and other security guards are completely full-fledged alcoholics (you can see bottles and glasses on tables everywhere). They are permanently talking about drinking. Dr.Cleiner is a narcomaniac. Gordon is a dangerous stupid destroyer with a crowbar. And so on. I am sorry but I can’t express all the range of relationships among them by literary English. This mod is a kind of parody/black humour like a movie “The naked gun”. Plus a foul language and a Russian mentality. Imagine, who could extract pleasure from “The naked gun” not knowing English?

    Sorry, but this mod is just highly focussed on a russian audience. I mean, only russian people can actually understand the sense and the goal of the mod and I’m afraid fluent knowledge of the russian language is mandatory in order to understand this mod. And also navigation and exploration also require full understanding of russian language.

    So I just played this to see how the maps were like. and though they were OK with a fully BM feeling. I just got lost and nocliped to see how the maps were like, also i had a fatal map crash at right after you exit the huge big fan place. So indeed i just provided myself impulse 101 and kill all the scientist in there, i had some fun battles against some angry barnies so that’s it.

    I wonder if is actually worth it that someone put some english subtitles on those russian voice acted parts.
