Forest Ambush

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

5th October 2008

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

This map was originally created as part of the HoloReality mod but due to requiring Episode Two content it was removed. It is presented here in an AS IS state. This means that it was not extensively beta tested, has some visual errors and contains places where you can get stuck.

When commenting and rating please remember these points. It’s better to have it in this form than not at all.

My thanks go to Silverlan, the author, for agreeing to its release separately.

  1. Phillip says Play It!

    I only rated this a Play It Later because of the small but important issues in the map. If these were corrected then it would be a Play It Now! map.

    SPOLIERS BELOW

    I have to warn you this is a really hard map. Getting past the Bullsquid is a challenge, as is finding a way over the pit and tanker. Then if you manage those you still have to face a Hunter, a Combine Hunter Chopper and a Strider. Phew, tough map. Good Luck.

    Phillip, Check the link to download on Filecloud server.

    Fixed, thanks.

  4. Play It Now!

    Except for the beginning bullsquid and the chopper that takes a million rockets to kill I found it rather fun.Would be great if the authour expanded on it and made some more maps and turned it into a mod.

  5. Play It Later

    Enjoyable and rather atmoshperic.

    Just when I thought the end would be easy I got swamped with numerous enemies. Though I’ve gotten so used to half life over the years, I made it through with 97 health.

    Might be difficult for casual players.
    Overall worth playing

    Play It Now!

    It took me a while to get past those striders and hunters but I pulled it through. Very awesome map.

  7. Robspace1

    I don’t what went wrong but I got as far as the circle of junk cars and vans and the two rebels and that’s it. The map went no further and I had to pull the plug. Too bad because the rest of it looks good. I tried twice to finish it but never saw the choppers or any real fighting. Don’t know if it’s my pc or the file.

    Very hard at the end, but a very good map. Well worth playing!

    I’m giving it a PIL because the end was pretty hard. No, it was very hard. I think I could finish it without dying (or cheats) with several replays.

  10. Play It Later

    I enjoyed the game until I got to the 3 rebels (one wounded on the ground) surounded by the tanker and the junk van with the rockets. One rebel said “Hi” and that was it. Tried a few times but no luck. No idea what the problem is. Running Vista 64-bit on a dual core lap top.

  11. Personal Favourite

    First of all… I cannnot believe Silverlan made this, I thought he was just a coder! Until I saw this! Man this is a heck of a map! I cannot believe he also made a bullsquid! How is that possible??? I’ll have to decompile and find out. Also: Wouldn’t you need the bullsquid model? IDK. Anyways, its fun when a hunter is sneaking up on you in the shed getting the Jalopy. Its also super fun driving over the hole! This is my PERSONAL FAVOURITE!

    Just reporting totally dead servers….

  13. Play It Later

    This map looks really nice and I like that it uses various different locations similar to Episode Two’s. There’s also some rather nice combat, and it uses antlions, zombies and combine. It’s pretty cool to see a bullsquid in Episode Two, but it’s rather glitchy. It was pretty fun running over that hunter with the Jalopy and I like the rollermine ambush, but I’m not the biggest fan of making large jumps with it. I’m pretty sure the end of the map is broken now, there were just some rebels chilling out and two rocket launchers I couldn’t pick up. Overall though, it’s a fun small level worth playing.

  14. Darth_Sylph

    i’ve seen this on the Steam Gmod workshop, except there it was called “ss_outland_breeze, and the boss fight at the end had you carrying around this Auto-Cannon, like the one you see in Ep 2 massacring a load of zombies,

  15. Maybe?

    I was also stuck at the circle of junk cars with 2 rebels. There appears to be missing scene files.

    Tough map, with what i assume was an invincible bullsquid. Along with that huge gap for the car, otherwise the design was interesting enough and I think it would have been a good map.

  16. Nice little map. Unfortunately it seems the scenes.image file got broken by one of Valve’s updates.
