    How do you run this mod, it did not have a readme

  2. Setting/Gameplay
    A very very very short level. You can clearly see two things: The designer was able to learn about triggers fast, and he also did know how to use them to form gameplay. But you can also see, that he has absolutely no practice with brushwork, and so, the levels are really ugly.
    The lightning was way to strong and dominant, brushwork is getting better at the end. You basically run around, getting your weapons and equipment together, are transported to xen where you fight a dozen aliens and someone the level ends mysteriously.

    Conclusion
    Not totally ugly but anyhow another “my first map”-submit. Don’t play it unless you have to (perhaps because you lost a bet or something) …

    Very short 1 map mod. No pretentions. Lovely textures and colours. Some new ideas.

  5. 2muchvideogames

    it’s not everyday that I use the gauss because I’m so flipping conservative with good weapons, but this map lets me use the gauss liberally.

  6. Phillip says Maybe

    Well, this is not the greatest HL map you will play today but considering it’s nearly 15 years old, we can’t complain too much.

    There’s too much wrong with it for anything other than MAYBE.

    Try and play it with just the crowbar.

    All in all a very average release.

    Avoid It!

    Well this map was really quick for me, partially because it’s very small but also because I just watched Phillip play through it on Twitch.

    Hidden in the readme is your goal: destroy a piece of equipment stolen by the Xen aliens to use against us. I barely even noticed it, you’re given the gauss gun and I inadvertently blew up the equipment simply because it was behind an alien grunt that I shot through with the gauss. Mission accomplished I guess.

    It’s a very poor version of Xen we see here. It’s blocky, poorly textured, and doesn’t even have low gravity – it’s totally missing any of the ambience or mystery of Xen.

    Even back in 99 this was a poor map. It’s not godawful, it’s just not worth your time.

    MEH!! Overall this was my general reaction after playing this map. I know it’s been done like since a million years ago, and back then it may have been quite fun or interesting to play… But here now there’s a little to be impressed about.

    I know the map overall aims to look like Xen, but it was not a xenian level at all I mean the absence of normal “earth-like” gravity is not there at all, I mean gravity is the same in the alleged start base and in the Xen level, and also those texture really didn’t feel like xenian normal textures.

    In conclusion play it as the recommendation says, only if you are a real fan..

  9. Think Twice

    A short map that tries to tell a story but fails.
    It only deserves a 2 at most because while it feels like an old quake mod it tries to be like half life, for an early 99’s mod( there are much worse).
    There’s blocky constructions everywhere and xen is badly textured. The lack of sound is also what kills most of it. I tried it because I was curious about the rainbow of recommendation ratings given to it.

  10. CTD at the tram which came along after climbing up. it happened twice. Is that the end?

  11. Think Twice

    Thanks Phillip. I can rate it now, and its “not pretty” at all.

  12. Think Twice

    It’s a basic incredibly mediocre map. Not a lot to say here.

    Well, the story is that you have to destroy some kind of equipment because the aliens have it on Xen. Yes, Xen.

    Xen is not a really pleasant destination for HL1 modding, and this one really shows. The textures are glitchy and blocky, not to mention that in Xen there’s not even low gravity, and the fact that you can only use the gauss gun there.

    Also, the map crashed at some point, and so I couldn’t see much more of it. (if there is)

    Anyway, play this if you’re REALLY bored. Otherwise, you better play something else.
