Deadly Cargo

for Half-Life 2

1st September 2018

You ARE the deadly cargo!

You are being transported somewhere but foolishly they left a crowbar in your “cell”.

You have waited until the train has stopped and now it’s time to escape.

Author’s Note

“This is the sequel to a map I made called Arlington but was to large for this site.
You have been captured by the Combine and being transported in a train, the object is to escape and help rebels”

    Very interesting unique gameplay progression. Confused after killing all the combine and with the rebels, nowhere to go (I tried everywhere including “up and over” but its a dead end?)

  2. interesting use of in and out progresssion through a metro (screenshot) but once you are out and take contact with your squad there is no futher things to explore another less than 10 min gameplay

  3. Phillip says Avoid It!

    I don’t give AVOID IT! recommendations very often, but this really isn’t very much fun. The train gives no room for interesting encounters with enemies and the fact that you have a gun and they mostly have stun sticks makes it worse.

    The outdoor area is totally wasted and unless I did something very wrong, you get stuck at the end.

    Save yourself ten minutes and do something more interesting, like watch me play it!

  4. Think Twice

    Like Phillip said, this map isn’t very interesting or fun. The architecture and the lighting I thought were mostly OK, but they could easily be considered bad by anyone else. The train is just a simple non-moving train with a few metrocops to kill and the outside area was very bland and blocky. This could have been good for 2005 standards, but it’s not so fun to play now.

    Overall, give this map a play only if you wanna play everything from this site.

  5. Avoid It!

    I was very confused playing Deadly Cargo. It starts off with you in a cell in a train. You get a crowbar and get out of the train and kill some zombies and headcrabs. At that part, 1 minute in the mod mind you, I was already confused where to go next. I ended up noclipping back into the train, outside the cell. After that there was some combat involving CP’s, but this was uninteresting because most of the CP’s had stunsticks, and I had a gun, as Philip mentione in his review. I got out of the train again and there was now an outside area, which looked really blocky. After progressing a little further I met a wall and there was no way to continue. After noclipping around the map to see if I had missed anything, I gave up.

    Avoid It!

    Trust me, this was not good in 2005 standards either. Unfortunately there are so many problems with this small map, it’s quite an achievement to pack it so tightly.

    The problems start with getting out of the first area. It’s unclear what to do and I had a really fiddly time even getting the crowbar (which you can’t see anyway). Add some invisible walls and simply reaching a dead end you get stuck in that is apparently the end of the map, and you get a true map to avoid.

    Overall a dreadful map. Very bad laid out, and to me, it seems like the whole train map was broken. so I have not much more to say…

    Possibly this was the first work ever of this author.

    Things like this shouldn’t be released. So if you have something similar, please never show it up.
