Under certain radiation exposure this artifact opens a portal. Presumably the portal will lead to another artifact in the parallel world. Mission: Enter the portal and find the artifact in the parallel world. You will receive our new development, a suit that will allow you to safely get through the portal, and theoretically protect you from possible dangers in the parallel world. Once you have found the artifact, press this button on your suit and you will get teleported back to the Black Mesa laboratory.
Another escape the prison map. This one contains large Combine architecture, with long balconies from which the Combine can attack you.
It was made for an SMC mapping competition, over 4 years ago, so take that into account when reviewing it.
Let me clarify that this question is specifically is interested in community made maps and mods, not retail games, films or other forms of entertainment. Now, with that out of the way my answer is No. Reviews are reviews not feedback or beta testing responses.
That said a lot can be learnt by the author if they listen carefully.

This is a single player map made for SMC Mapping Competition 4. The theme was Mars.
In this map you find yourself in a laboratory where something has gone horribly wrong.
Find Eli and do what he tells you to do.
You start outside a large mansion and your objective is to reach the G-Man.
Of course you need to find the right door and the right room, so start searching each room carefully for clues and keys.
Play with the lights out to get the best from this map.
Are you brave enough to explore the G-Man’s mansion? In this slightly scary mod you have to work your way through a mansion looking for keys and fighting enemies. Expect some surprises and maybe a few hidden items.
Play in the dark with the lights out to get the best effect. Unless you are too scared. Want me to call your mommy?
I wasn’t a big fan of Xen, probably because I’m not a good jumper.
There was a Half-Life 2 mod called Transitions that allowed players to visit Xen again with updated textures but it wasn’t that popular, probably because the start required you to do nothing for a little while.

After-Life 2 is the story of a player moving through a world which is slowly deconstructing around them. It is a struggle for survival not just literally, but also metaphysically. In a first-person shooter, you (the player) inhabit the body of a character in the story of the game. What happens when the character you’re playing knows they’re being played?
