About

Author’s Note:“This map has a long history behind it. I started this map on the 10 of October 2005 and I finished it just a bit after then. I went on holiday to Turkey with the rest of my family where I worked on the A.P.C.s on the bridge (you’ll know the bit I mean when you play it ;=]) and then I attempted to reinstall Windows X.P. because I thought I had a problem with the U.S.B. ports of my computer (which on further investigation I didn’t).”

“However, the installation stopped halfway though leaving me with no choice but to reinstall Windows X.P. completely from scratch (which in turn would erase all my data).

I was not going to let almost a year of work go that easily, however. I had access to this device known as “The Microsoft Recovery Console” from which I could copy files like this: C:program filesetc That was the location of the file to E: The destination (luckily I had a partioned portion of my harddrive).

I didn’t have any instructions for this though, I found it out through trial and error. I then finished the map on October the 12 and am therefore making my work available to the public. I put a huge amount of work into this and it was my first proper H-L 2 map. I really appreciate any sensible feedback. Enjoy playing it!

So, the plan is real simple, Gordon. You and Crazy will charge in, grab some guns, and let us out of the cells. Once we’re out, well…we’ll figure it out from there. Talk to Crazy when you’re ready, he’s probably watching the zombies again. Good luck…we’re counting on you.”

    pretty hard. but fun

  2. The entire map is set in a couple city blocks.You follow the streets around enter a couple buildings to hit the switches for gates and end up at the jail.There are combine all the way around the streets so its shoot to kill to get there.I didnt find it hard since there is lots of ammo/armour/health.

    If this was done in a setting like the Grand Place in Belgium,with streets running in different directions and easy to get lost and all the centuries old buildings etc I would of enjoyed it more.But I dont know if thats even possible.

    Have you say Belgium…if you are from this place you are not alone…

    What’s the payoff? I get to the jail, break down the wood planks to get into a room, push the button, go out the back door, climb over two armored cars and I’m back at the beginning. Is that it?

  5. billy joe bob dupree

    Never mind. I got it. Just didn’t push the door in the right place the first time.

  6. Well, I didn’t enjoy this map very much at all. It crashed on me twice and I had real trouble getting very far (Maybe my difficulty setting was still on “hard”, who knows.

    Anyway, after the second crash I gave up!

  7. Have you say Belgium…if you are from this place you are not alone…

    Nope not from there.Just lived in Waterloo for 5 years when I went to school.Beautiful country,as is most of the EU

  8. PasserbywhoplaysHL

    You an IB man andyb?

  9. i went to st.johns international school for grades 8-12.just normal schooling.

  10. Didn’t like it to straight forward and a little to hard for me…

    Gameplay:
    Run and gun action with a few buttons to press, however the flow is very boring and tiresome. A lot of enemy combine soldiers are thrown at you in a large city enviroment that is niether exciting or fustrating. Player does however gather enough supplies to survive though. Knowing where to go isn’t at all obvious and the long walks were annoying too.

    Design:
    Very average, with some very basic structure and texturing throughout. Although the map doesn’t have plain blocks and square rooms is a plus, however the bad design ruined it. Lighting was bad in a lot of places, especially the indoors as it was a green toned yellow and didn’t look good at all.

    Conclusion:
    A tiring and boring map with bad design.

    Rating: 30%

    isnt that the same quote for the “prison break” maps?
