Half-Life: On A Rail

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

As Gordon Freeman rides a monorail in the Materials Transport section of Black Mesa, he learns from a security guard that he must ride to the High Altitude Launch Center to launch a satellite, which the Lambda Team can use to reverse the effects of the Resonance Cascade.

He also discovers the HECU’s true hatred for him, as well as larger reinforcements: sandbag bunkers with rapid-fire sniper rifles, mounted machine gun turrets (manual and automated), and even mounted rocket launchers.

After going round in circles, it seems, for a while, he goes up several elevators and at last reaches the surface again. At the launch site, he sends the rocket up into orbit, and regretfully goes back below ground.

Half-Life: Power Up

The Replay Experience Experiment: Half-Life 1: Power Up

Trying to reach the surface once more, Gordon’s progress is thwarted by a clash between a Gargantua and HECU soldiers in the Sector E Materials Transport.

He then learns from a dying security guard that if he restores the generator, he can ride the monorail to the surface. Freeman enters the Houndeye-infested subterranean areas and activates the generator, restoring power to the vicinity.

After activating more switches, he destroys the Gargantua patrolling the area by turning on the huge transformers supplying power to the tram line.
Hitching a ride, he smashes through a barricade of concrete blocks before continuing on his way.

Poll Question 279 – What is your favourite gameplay style

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

Sometimes it’s easy to miss the obvious questions. In fact, I am very surprised I haven’t asked this before. If I have then I must have missed it when I looked through the Poll Question List view.

We all know what we like but do we really know what others like?

Of course, a good mod should include aspects of all of the choices but there’s no denying we probably prefer one style more than another.

Which one do you prefer?
