DeanAmythe - Halloween Horror II: The Darkness – Map Labs #6 - 4 days ago
I guess they do that to make you less mobile, limiting your abilites (to make you feel more vulnerable). Hiding the quick save message I think is because of the speedmod mappers use to limit your movement....
dougjp - Cosmonaut - 1 week ago
WOW! Exactly the same reaction as geezer, I was blown away by everything. Graphics, combat, puzzles woven into the game in such a way as to make you think, but not give up. Its a special mod that's for sure. Possibly my favorite of all time. Thank you so much!...

Overall I found these maps to be quite disappointing as they didn't really make me feel anything. Satanaphobia [recimage id=2] I quite enjoyed the prank opening and the atmosphere was initially quite interesting, I then walked around expecting an elaborate puzzle to clear a doorway before finding out that it's just broken and I had to noclip through it. The rest of the map was pretty average but I did enjoy a couple of sections specifically the...
Wesp5 - Halloween Horror II: The Darkness – Map Labs #6 - 2 weeks ago
A rather disappointing collection of maps. Aberrant Transmission was the best by far and again breaking the light took some time to figure out as you can't do that to any other light too! Also why is it that many modders find it is cool to 1) remove jumping and 2) hide the quick save message?...
DeanAmythe - Halloween Horror II: The Darkness – Map Labs #6 - 2 weeks ago
Hammer Tools Inc [recimage id=3] Nice job converting the FNaF concept into HL2 and not entirely copying it. Although the camera switching took a bit of time to get used to, I got the hang of it pretty quickly. A phone guy was also a nice touch, but I think some players will be overwhelmed by the amount of information given to them, even though it isn't really that much. I myself already had an idea of what the jammer did when I used it when the h...
geezer1857 - Cosmonaut - 2 weeks ago
WOW !! WOW!! WOW!! Just finished playing for the first time. Plan to go back soon to play it again. Overall, the game is excellent with its movement, graphics, and story. I had a couple of spots where I was slowed down to have to figure out what to do next to continue, but most of the game was smooth and exciting. I'd recommend that you haven't yet, download it and get started. This game has become one of my favorites. Job well done in its design and work spent to make it ...

No reviews yet, so I figured I would post a quick one of my own. These reviews are based off of my passing thoughts when I played these over a year ago, so they won't be super long. The Sun Vanished by ThatsRidonkulous [recimage id=4] Really good visuals and sound design here, the world feels real and that adds a lot to the horror elements. I kinda wish the whole "sun vanishing" idea was explored a bit more, and I can't say it particularly sca...
Strontvlieg - Cosmonaut - 3 weeks ago
Not only is this mod long, but it's also high quality from A to Z. It is clear that a lot of work has been put into this project, and it definitely shows. Now, it's been a while since I've played this mod so my memory might be a bit foggy. Cosmonaut doesn't do anything revolutionary gameplay-wise, but that's not a problem for me personally. I never got lost, there was no kitchen sink combat, and there was an abundance of health/batteries throughout the entire mod. Secrets were scat...
vancanucksfan - Half-Life: Somatic - 3 weeks ago
This is really just one map with the files needed to make it into a mod. I liked the old church environment in the above ground part. The underground areas were pretty plain without much combat. Decent quality but you will finish it quickly....

Sorry? For what? If there aren't any new mods it isn't your fault. I think there will be enough new stuff in the future. Or do you have a guilty conscience, because of no MAP-TAP Halloween competition this year? This is just a speculation, no judging or anything else like that. Don't mind. In my opinion we users can be happy about the site not being closed down without Phil. I wish you a happy halloween!...

James19 - Entropy Zero - 4 weeks ago
Whoa, what a journey. What can I say? My first thought is: It's a masterpiece (until you reach the citadel). Fantastic, very creative how you approach scenarios, gameplay, gunfights. The stealth mission, albeit a bit buggy, was a fantastic idea. The enviroment was top notch. I really felt I was on city 10 sometimes. On the gameplay aspect, its worth mention that it was very punishing the damage you suffered, but it was tolerable when you think it's a mod that tries to do something differe...
Unq - Reissues - 4 weeks ago
Make sure you did this part as laid out in the Installation Instructions: Important – this archive includes four dll files which should already be present in your Half-Life folder. Only overwrite your existing dll’s if the mod’s ones are newer (very unlikely) otherwise copy only the main Reissues mod folder into your Half-Life folder and leave the dll’s. I just retested this download and the mod runs OK for me....

Urby - CWCpack Initiative - 4 weeks ago
Having only just found and played through this, I am honestly shocked to see so many 5 star ratings. Since this is a collaboration from quite some time ago, I can understand that there should be some leeway for the overall rating, as the mappers clearly have varied levels of skill. Having said that, not a single one of them seems to be without it's issues. Maps are inconsistent with their rules, which results in players not knowing what to do in order to progress. There are also far too ma...

Rating removed since you didn't actually play it. It crashes because of Valve's update to HL last week. Opt in to the beta version of HL on Steam, or fix it yourself: open liblist.gam (text file) in the mod folder, and change: gamedll “..\valve\dlls\hl.dll” to gamedll “dlls\hl.dll”...

Error.__63 - RunThinkShootLiveVille 2 – Map Labs #3 - 4 weeks ago
This was so much fun, the modders did an amazing job. Even the maps I would consider "bad" had some fun parts in them, now onto my boring, bad review: Schwarzchild Radius [recimage id=5] This one blew me away the second I was given an opportunity to move, the entire space ship looks so aesthetically nice; it gave off a very unsettling vibe in the darker, lonelier areas The run segment was really cool, It scared the ...

The mod was working under steam when I installed it on 2019-10-06, but after the HL update of 2019-10-08, its not possible anymore to begin a new game or load the previously saved games. It works under HL 1.1.1.0 tho, and the saved games files are compatible....
Steve - Supplier - 1 month ago
I quite liked this. Started off a bit odd with the crates in the truck - I wanted those lol. I even went back after getting the crowbar... Btw, here everything was choppy and with low framerate. Inside, I really liked the design with good details. The zombie parts downstairs were well done I thought, and in stages too which worked well. A little more ammo wouldn't have been a bad idea? Nor maybe some grenades. The air ducts parts went on a bit too much for my liking... And then the outdoor...
DeanAmythe - Mistake of Pythagoras - 1 month ago
A bit of a mixed bag for me. I really liked the use of abstraction in this mod, really makes it stand out among others. This is also supported by some great geometry- and brushwork. Apart from that, the visuals were underwhelming, but that's to be expected considering when it was made. My main issue with this mod is the lack of clarity at times; sometimes I walked around for about 5-10 minutes not knowing what to do, only for the way forward to be almost hidden or very unclear. There are ...

lloyd_black - Paranoia Abstract - 1 month ago
Honestly, I really enjoyed this map. I don't know how much time I spent in it so I didn't record that accurately. This was a well thought out map but I think it's more artistic and a puzzle map than anything. However, I really like those when I'm in the mood. If you like puzzles and problem solving this is a good map. I did have to use 'noclip' a few times to get around honestly. I got stuck in the duct where the little lights were which required me to use 'noclip' there. I like the different...
lloyd_black - Condominium - 1 month ago
I didn't enjoy this at all. I don't know what condominium this was supposed to be but it just looked like a bunch of hallways. My maps might not be great but I design better than this and I don't release them. Everything just seemed very random and not thought out. The lights going out was kind of pointless in the concept of the map to me and took away from my desire to play it at all. I only played this for about 2 mins and quit. This is one I actually deleted off my system and that's rare f...
zoe - Cosmonaut - 1 month ago
This is an excellent mod and I hope the author makes many more. IMO, the atmosphere and settings are great. I almost wish there were more enemies so that I would be forced to linger a little longer in each area looking for ammo, health, or secrets. The one thing I wish was there was an ending screen that stated my accomplishments or secrets found. I know I didn't find everything, but I'd like to know how much I missed. I need to know how thorough I need on the next play-through. Thumbs up...

MetalGearToaster - Leon’s Mappack 1 - 1 month ago
Leon's Mappack 1 This small pack created by Leon tasks the player with one simple objective. Kill some Combine, Go through the city, Escape. I don't feel the use of text was useful because; the map should guide the player through on its own. The ending bit got a bit tedious; considering the amount of unnecessary damage. Other than that, for maps made 1 year after Half-Life 2 came out; it's fairly solid....
DeanAmythe - Cosmonaut - 1 month ago
Cosmonaut was one of my favorite entries for any HL mapping competition ever. Seeing it being expanded into a full mod made me very excited. Played through it, and was definitely not disappointed. Dolmo has done some fantastic work here, and created a possible future classic. There is just so much to like about this mod, I don't know where to begin. Gameplay is classic HL2 in a good way, you have your intense combat sections broken up by some puzzles that you meet just bef...
Steven Cabbage - Cosmonaut - 1 month ago
Cosmonaut is one of my favourite Half-Life 2 mods I've played so far. First of all, I love a gameplay of the mod. It doesn't bore you when you're playing, you don't want the mod to end. The gameplay isn't repetitive, but very variative. Secondly, I can't say that the mod is visually impressive, but it is really solid and high-quality. Detalization and brushwork were pretty good. The level design was really well-done. Thirdly, I love that the mod features lots of secrets and achievement...

Twitch_MojoRising - Third Party - 2 months ago
Honestly mods like these, are my favorite kind. Implementing itself within the universe completely, taking place during the events of EP 1, Gordon is escaping the city, and the rebels are moving in to save a high valued target and get out them selves. Playing as a resistance rebel your traverse a broken City 17, witnessing the combine struggle, the metro police fight and flee forming there own unit as there still human, and the resistance wants there blood. Its a traditional mission, wi...
Twitch_MojoRising - A2B Trajectory - 2 months ago
I Thoroughly enjoyed this map, started out eerie dark and alone, in a limited enviorment, your searching for the way forward, discovering weird contraptions and how they work, using them to proceed. Had very good map design in my opinion, very cannon feeling to the Half life universe, minus the backdrop in one scene, and had a very clever moment that included half life 1 sound effects coupled with a scene that i feel would give Gordon a flash back of PTSD of Black Mesa. Proper Boss ending,...
Twitch_MojoRising - Supplier - 2 months ago
Personally i really enjoyed this map, was hard, well done, proper boss fight, forced me to adapt, and made good use of the music as well. I thought the boss fight was quite challenging as there are very limited resources and 1 clear way to attack, but imo i enjoyed that limitation in the end. Short, Hard, Well made, a traditional Half life 2 singleplayer mod. i give a 5 Star....

Steve - Dark Intervention - 2 months ago
I hear this is a first map which is impressive with an overall idea which I could see working well. But I found it felt too staged using a design that's spread out too much, if that makes sense? The soldiers didn't have much AI and just stood there until I started to hit 'em... Okay, it's supposed to be dark but it's boringly dark - and far too dark. I also had weird graphical effects for cars, doors, etc... Hard to explain but it was like a bright bloom effect. Very odd. I think this map...

Steve - A2B Trajectory - 2 months ago
I really liked this. I thought the puzzles where more interesting rather than impossibly annoying. Visually, it was a little dull and bland, so more detail in that respect to jazz up your environment would have been nice. My main negative was the lacking monsters/bad guys during those periods they appeared. Just a tad more please. For me, the "worst" part was after opening the gates and having to contend with the mounted gun - simply because I needed medkits around this area. More and more ot...

MisterYij - Project Einstein - 2 months ago
This is basically a map filled with loads of enemies who teleport en mass around you while giving you limited ammo.

Unpopular opinion here, but after seeing how highly rated this map is, I'm left thinking... am I playing the same one these guys did?? It's a decent map, but leaves alot to be desired.

MisterYij - Freeman’s Revenge - 3 months ago
A short handful of maps that will take you less than an hour to complete. Takes you through mainly a military installation with mostly corridor shooting, but some medium-sized open areas to battle in. You'll mostly be facing the human grunts (which is great as the soldiers in Half-Life are still a joy to battle to this day!), as well as Xen, plus witness both sides battling it out. Played it on hard mode and it's been a little challenging, with grenade-launching happy grunts and sneaky snarks hi...
MisterYij - E-Lab-orate - 3 months ago
A very, very short level that literally takes 15 or less minutes to complete and only has a handful of enemies. Not a bad map, not alot going on, but not alot to complain about either.
