    This is worth a play for me. 7 maps of fun combat, platforming, and puzzle. This is basically your average HL2 custom campaign. Judging by my recommendation, there’s nothing cons about this entry except for inconsistencies with the story.

  2. Anon_1950669

    I liked it. Nice flow and combat. Nice puzzles mixed in. Nice mixture of indoor and outdoor environments.v Very nice mod!

  3. Play It Later

    What you have here is a decent sequence of maps, certainly not the most high quality thing I’ve played but there’s a lot of good ideas and memorable areas. Pretty good pacing of combat and puzzles throughout and this is definitely worth playing. Also contains custom decals and props from Black Mesa which was a nice touch I suppose if not a little out of place.

  4. Play It Now!

    Great mini-campaign, I loved that it had a quite a bit of meat to it while never feeling repetitive. The maps all felt very true to HL design in terms of combat encounters, puzzles and pacing. Awesome stuff.

  5. Play It Now!

    This is a great start to a mod, however there are a lot of minor details that I noticed that could cause a softlock. The biggest point to cover most of them is whenever a player needs to explode a door without ammo, they are pretty much stuck. Unless there is another way that I didn’t know about. This is what happened to me when I tried to softlock myself.

    Also, it’s probably just a skill issue and me using MMod to playtest these maps, but the final battle was brutal. I also tend to quick save at very poor moments.

    There was a story, but I only really understood what the premise was at the very end of it.
    Gordon freeman is going to C17 after visiting C14.

    I also had a lot of trouble getting into the powerstation at the end of the final map. I ended up getting on top of the playerclip and entering that way. This brings me to my next note. Please use playerclips more. I was able to prop climb and / or SMG jump over most of the barriers.

    1. Thank you for your comments!

      Some questions: – Where does the player have to blow up a door without ammo? There is none on the maps.
      – In the last map what was the problem with getting into the power station? There is an automatic door that opens by itself if the player gets close to it.
      I used player clip in a lot of places, but there must have been places left to jump over. Just like in the original game 🙂

      1. In the map “tunnel” there is a explosive barrel in a room behind a door. In that room there is two health vials and a supply crate. I can access this room via a vent just after opening a door exiting the “barnacle room”. In order to proceed the player must explode the barrel. If the player runs out of ammo (there is ammo near the room too), they have to reload a prior save and not waste ammo. For most players this is not a problem, but some might be unfortunate enough to blow through their ammo without a second though. I hope this helps.

        1. Hello!

          Yes, the player may run out of ammunition, but I think that can happen very rarely. I have placed quite a lot of ammo on the map. Thank you for your comment!

  6. Hello everybody!

    I am very proud that so many people have downloaded my map pack! Thanks for the comments, I will try to learn from them. I hope you enjoyed playing with the maps.

    1. There are only a handful of maps I actually didn’t like. This one is definitely something I enjoyed playing.

  7. Tibor,
    Your maps were delightful! I still really enjoy HL2, but there’s not a lot of new maps anymore. Yours were a blast! Nice and long, well thought out, good puzzles, and all different! I can’t imagine the amount of work and time you put into your creation. Thanks so much for sharing it! Keep up the great work!

    1. Hi, rwise!

      Thanks for the kind words! I have been making the map pack for 5 years. It took me so long because I only worked on it when I had a new idea or an original puzzle.

  8. Personal Favourite

    A blast! Play it!

  9. Personal Favourite

    Its the best map I’ve played in a long time, and definitely earns a PF to me. The design, gameplay and difficulty of puzzles and battle all had the right balance throughout.

    Thank you for making this map!

    1. Thank you very much. I’m glad you had fun playing. That was my goal.

  10. Personal Favourite

    Where have you been all of these years?, this could have been a HL2 episode. All very familiar (thats a good thing) with enough challenges along the way to still be rewarding.

    The linear progress is logical without trying to be too clever. Well done, its a long time since I enjoyed a new mod like this. More of the same please. One to savour.

  11. Play It Now!

    Been a while I posted anything here. I just want to say this is one of the best map packs so far. Very fun, mostly well detailed, interesting puzzles and action crafted in a very good way.

  12. Personal Favourite

    I have to say that this is a map that you should not miss playing. The story line has been crafted to keep you engaged while challenging your abilities to figure out the tasks ahead and still be interested in continuing. I look forward to playing it again and again, and will be searching for other mods and maps that Tibor Horváth has been working on the development of. BRAVO Tibor!!!

    1. Hi, geezer1857!

      I’m glad you liked the map pack!
      I made a Half life map pack a long time ago called “The Returning”. You can find that here on RTSL, but it was a bit of a novice.
      Unfortunately I haven’t made another map pack for Half Life 2 Ep.2 yet, this was the first one.

  13. Play It Now!

    A fun couple of hours. Try it out if you haven’t done so already!

  14. Play It Now!

    I had a really great experience playing this mod, you never get bored even if it could be a little repetitive.
    I find it quite easy regarding puzzle and combat but honnestly this is what I prefer, I really don’t like experience that starts to be frustrating because you don’t know what to do next or you have a ambush that need to be redone 10times to path through

    The storyline, the progression, the suprise and idea you encounter make this one a great experience that lets us hoping there is more to come in the coming years 🙂

    Really big thanks Tibor for your excellent work 🙂

    1. it didn’t take me 20hours but only 2 if a moderator can change this 😉

    2. Hi, Stef!

      I’m glad I could get you 2 happy hours with the maps.

  15. Tibor,

    After your comment I played “The Returning” (again, after many years), and I think that was excellent too, given the restrictions of the HL 1 universe. Some nice combat and puzzles too, and lots of gameplay.

    I do hope you do another map!

  16. Personal Favourite

    A Half-Life 2 adventure just the way I like it. The battles nicely balanced; not too hard, but not too easy either. One of the best HL2 adventures in a long time. Many thanks for this. 🙂

    1. Hi, Sethy3030!

      Thank you very much for your kind words, I am glad you liked my maps.

  17. coms

    AWesome thankyou
    You really understand the hl2 mechanics and feel
    sense of progression / exploration / detailed environments nothing contrived !

  18. Personal Favourite

    A truly delightful mod. One of the most enjoyable I have played in a long time. Not too difficult and with some great combat and puzzles. In fact all the qualities of a great mod and at no time do you feel overwhelmed by it. I guess it may not suit everyone as there is always plenty of ammo and opportunities to pick up health and armour making it completely possible to play straight through without the need for reincarnation. Highly recommended for those who like a good fun HL2 experience. More like this please!

    1. Thank you!

      I didn’t expect 900 downloads! I wish Bolloxed would play it on YouTube… 🙂

    A bit too hard at the start but it balances itself towards the end.

  20. Jonboy

    What map do I load first

    1. Hi!
      Read the Manual Installation Instructions!

      First map name is “station”.

      Have fun!

    Hi i liked it very much. I liked the new ideas (tunnel-drilling-machine etc.) It was a lot of fun to play. Thank you!
