Half-Life: Abridged All-Stars – Map Labs #12

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

30th August 2023

After the rousing success of Half-Life: Abridged, the Map Labs crew ran a broader challenge to abridge popular Half-Life mods instead of the official games. The list of mods available to entrants was huge (too long to list here!) but it covered a wide variety of HL1 mods, HL2 mods, and even several small and single-map mods.

So here’s Abridged All-Stars, with 11 entrants!

As always, if you’re interested in learning more about Map Labs and maybe even participate in their upcoming challenges, visit the Map Labs Discord.

  1. Play It Later

    Really enjoyed Abridged versions of quite popular mods.

    I assume Equilibrium Flux didn’t get any reward since it’s a bonus map (guess it was submitted late), but imho it should have been 3rd place at least.

    Overall, great maps; thanks to all authors!

    Well, this one was a quick and cool map lab challenge, I think the winners are worthy, and most of the bonus entries were also pretty cool to play.

    Overall I enjoyed the neat and quick action in all these releases, and I think the entries reflected the mods that were supposed to pay tribute.

    I think it is a nice PN.
