Return

for Half-Life

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

As the name suggests, you go back to Black Mesa. It’s a sparse area with some Grunts and Vortigaunts.

There’s only 1 headcrab to be found in the whole mod, which is a good thing.

Gargs can be found in various places throughout the mod, no need to look too hard, it’s not as if you could miss them, is it?

    Nice to go back to Black Mesa, isn’t it. I mean, are there any HL fans that don’t love BM?

    Visuals
    Whilst I did enjoy the mod it was a little sparse.

    Gameplay
    I found this very hard and the fact that grunts appeared via portals was really annoying. Killing the Gargs was pretty hard too.

    Layout and Design
    It’s BM; so lots of right angled corridors and large labs. 🙂

    Summary
    Hard and fun, just like it should be.

    5 Words Or Less Review

    Helps prevent BM withdrawal symptoms.

  2. confused

    Yeah back-to-black mesa, looking foward to trying it! Will review afterwards.

  3. Looks like fun, downloading now.

  4. Barnz

    It’s poorly constructed, but still fun I guess. There were some cool scenes.

    I didn’t enjoy this mod because… I don’t know why, but I just didn’t enjoyed it! Maybe it was because I am waiting for a good HL1 map for too long

    Boring… empty hallways (mapper made walls, but those maps are just unfinished overall), strange voices in strange places.

  7. confused

    I think if I have nothing good to say I shouldn’t say anything at all. 🙂

    I dont get it… man give me a weapon :S

  9. Perhaps were more accustomed to the higher degree of
    “decorations”since we’ve been playing HL2,Episode 1 and 2 and all the mods for years.

    Yes, it’s more Black Mesa. But the BMRF here is very boxy with horrible lighting, and the marines teleport into thin air 5 feet in front of you repeatedly. It’s really cheap and without explanation it very much breaks the Half-Life style.

    The gameplay is pretty much run and gun, although there is barely enough ammo and health is scarce. The good news is that you never have to engage either Gargantua that shows up, and in fact as soon as you bypass the second, the mod abruptly but thankfully ends with sudden text on the screen.

    There’s no reason to be there, nothing of note happens, and there’s no feel of activity which Black Mesa definitely has. It’s empty maps with a lot of dead ends and some tough combat although that is spaced out pretty well. At least this was an improvement over the author’s first release, in which you had to load every map manually. Steer well clear.

      Well this review was mine but for some reason I got logged out between writing the review and submitting it.

  11. Avoid It!

    NOTE: Before playing “Return” I did play “Return 2”, don’t ask me why, maybe it’s cause of that the second part was listed as “Half Life: Return 2” and the first just as “Return” (yeah I’m playing through the ABC 😉

    So this is the beginning of “Return” – whatever that could mean. It’s a Black Mesa-style indoor minimod with… well WITH?? Should say WITHOUT, cause many things are missing here.
    But what’s included is a confusing situation you’re finding yourself in. So just keep moving, kill and find the final elevator to escape I’d say.

    Pro’s:
    -Tough difficulty (even on “medium”)
    -Black Mesa feeling
    -Some scripts

    Con’s:
    -No story – you’re clueless what happened, and what to do, where to go
    -Many closed doors
    -Short playtime
    -Balancing
    -No variation, less enemy types, weapons & health
    -Very basic and undetailed graphic design – at least this could’ve been better
    -No puzzles
    -Dead ends and a deadly trap
    -Unfair placed enemies and the trap
    -No ambience sound, almost every hall is empty and silent

  12. Maybe?

    Nothing interesting, except garg and teleporting enemies. Just a map to shoot a bit.
