  1. Mel
    Think Twice

    good game/good balance and game play/bit short/texture a bit vivid in places/maps a bit basic.

  2. Maybe?

    I agree with mel. I would add that the game starts quietly, then suddenly the action starts – good intense first battle, not easy.

  3. Play It Later

    Challenging yet fun but pretty short. Only downfall is that it may be hard to navigate to your next objective.

  4. I’ve added 9 screenshots kindly supplied by piledriver.

  5. Maybe?

    Some short maps with the typical HL story.
    (ATTENTION: it sounded that it is a mappack, meaning more than one part, so please bear with me cause I’ve only played this part!)

    Pro’s:
    -Some pretty good leveldesign
    -Good HL feeling
    -Few puzzles
    -Lot of ammo, health

    Con’s:
    -Very short
    -Weird combat, meaning enemy placement
    -A bit too less combat
    -Too easy

  6. Think Twice

    Old, very basic and simple little mappack, Bugged ai (thanks to some Hl1 patches?), theres few friendly Vorts that wont hurt you. Easy one too, usually you die because you fail with explosives.

    But then again, it was pure shooter, didnt include any useless puzzles that makes your hair go grey or anything. And none of those “take this NPC to place x stuff”. It was just “Take all these weapons and ammo and go kill things”

  7. Think Twice

    In spite of its short length, Gamestar takes a moment to get going. In fact, of the six maps included, three of them feature no action at all. When the action does kick off, it’s restricted to incredibly tight, maze-like hallways. These are not terribly interesting to look at and it makes it fairly difficult to use the high volume of explosive weapons you are provided with.

    The level transitions are a little fiddly, especially when concerning elevators. It seems to only work when you are pressed right against the back wall. On top of all this, the player does not have any clearly defined objective throughout and the abrupt ending left me feeling largely unsatisfied.

    Overall, Gamestar is a short, meandering experience with very little direction.
