    just finished the mod. very good. bit laggey in places. I still couldnt figure out how to use E the other scientist to come and fight with me. but none the less. had a great time playing.
    them aliens kick by but everytime I run into them.

  4. This borrows weapons, models and textures heavily from Sweet and They Hunger.

    A good game that borrowed a lot from other HL cutom games, however, the end product is an enjoyable experience with a nice flow to the game.

    Intro in an east european language – ok. Some ??? text and waiting, ok. Some enemies leaned from gunman, ok. But levels look boxy and not so clever with walls as grey and brown as the enemies (skeletons an wolves), moving like puppets, lights often nerving on/off/on/off. So I leaved for more fun elsewhere.

    More like a total conversion (TC) for HL than a usual mod, so don’t expect any Black Mesa or even HL related stuff, except some weapons and enemy types.
    As I’m not online when writing this (writing in Notepad right now, copy + paste later) and can’t translate the Czech readme, it seems you’re some sort of archeologist in some Mexican Aztec style nature, together with some colleagues.
    It also seems there’s no story nor do you know what to do except moving on, solving some little puzzles and fighting animals such as wolves (houndeye), skeletons (alien slave) and the popular headcrabs.
    The leveldesign is quite strange, there are new textures and stuff but they don’t look very good, the lighting isn’t great too. It even can get slow on my machine sometimes.
    According to the maps folder of “TAB” there are more than 20 maps, but my game crashed every time after changing from tab5 to tab6 and as I’ve already seen enough for my taste I don’t bother to play the rest of it, sorry! Therefore my review should be handled with care!
    It already took about 20 mins to get where I was and what I’ve seen and experienced did not change very much during gameplay. So I think there is no big change in the later maps… but maybe I’m wrong.
    However, it wasn’t fun at all to me. I just tried to get as far as possible before boredom wins, and luckily the game crashed hehe Meaning, even if a mod looks / feels / is crappy, I try to complete it.
    I can be very stubborn, yeah my zodiac sign is Taurus lol (Only extremely bad / pointless / silly / buggy mods can stop me finishing mods)

    -New weapons, textures, models etc. (not very good-looking)
    -Unique setting, reminded me a bit of “Sandscroll” and some other Egyptian-like mods
    -Good balanced combat
    -A few puzzles so far
    -A few good scripts, guess there are more
    -Quite long playtime it seems
    -Some jumping sequences without risky longjumps or too hard obstacles (yet)

    -Models / weapons stolen from “They Hunger” series (wolf, bullsquid, skeleton, shovel, etc.)
    -Ugly textures, sometimes annoying flickering light, a short level layout stolen from “We’ve got hostiles” chapter (—> map “c1a3d”) of the original HL (why??)
    -Bugs (elevator, game crash, etc. can’t remember more, but there were a few)
    -Too easy puzzles
    -Dead(ly) ends
    -No atmosphere (kickbum graphics and mapping would help a LOT here)

    NOTE: As mentioned above I’m not willing to play any further after my HL crashs at the mapchange from “tab5” to “tab6”, after about 20-30 mins of playing, so this review should be handled carefully!
