  1. Phillip says Maybe

    Not much to recommend this beside the funny cutscene at the beginning.

    There’s some shooting and running around but it doesn’t last long. Only play if you have nothing else to do.

  2. Think Twice

    I actually had to remember what my own personal take on Phillip’s recommendations are to decide how to rank this. I usually give maybe rankings to those games that I don’t really want to play again, but that I thought had some element to them that at least made them worth playing once, just to see that element in action. So I use maybe’s for mods that are “Worth Checking”

    This doesn’t quite get that, so I take a step down. It’s not a bad or broken mod, so it doesn’t warrant an Avoid it ranking. Instead it’s a solid, if not terribly engaging piece of work. For me, that ranks as a Time Waster, so Phillip’s equivalent is Think Twice.

    Summing up: Short and solid, but nothing really new or interesting.

    Avoid It!

    Let’s see here….starting off with 3 combines and a few manhacks coming at you when I don’t have a gun, great… Run around, find a pistol with almost no ammo in it, find some more ammo, turn around and start shooting at something when I instantly get killed by 2 manhacks and 3 combines with smg’s shooting perfectly at my head. Respawn and notice that I have to watch the cutscene again, yay… Start off again, still slightly too outnumbered for my taste, try to go into a small building, OOOHHHHHH A SHOTGUN!!!, oh wait there’s a nice metrocop blocking my way. They kill me off again, cutscene time! I sprint up to the gun during the cutscene’s very long black screen period, elegantly headshot the cop blocking my way, get the shotgun and kill off the other guys(and manhacks) easily. Go inside the main building shoot a guy, no more ammo, weeeee, a room with 3-4 combines with shotguns and smg’s, after failing to kill them off with the power of my mind I switch to easy(from hard). Everything goes smoothly now since the combines aren’t really aiming at me anymore and they die from pretty much one shot from any weapon. So I finish the map in probably 15 seconds? The level design wasn’t too bad though, but then again good graphics does not make up for bad gameplay. I’m a total noob though so it might just be me sucking really badly, which would be strange though since I can easily take most mods and all the HL games on hard without problems.
    Play it if you are an aimbot(hard and normal) or if you have a minute you need to get rid of(easy).
    Avoid it twice, now or later, maybe.

  4. Maybe?

    Neither the map nor author deserve AIs or TTs.

    RomanticDog set out with an objective and achieved his goal splendidly.
    This has been well mapped as far I can see and well plotted too.
    After Easy I played in Hard with no problems at all.

    Pros. A bit of fun & excellently done.
    Cons. It might just take you as much as 2.1/2 minutes to play it if you take it very slowly! It does not waste a lot of time for sure.

    It’s not a ‘must play” for certain but worth downloading and saving so you can play it when you’re in need of a bit of titter.
    Think of it as a one liner comic link between more serious works

    Beware the donuts, very fattening.

    Not going to bother with this one, but thanks for the above comments.

  6. AI

    Too much work for a few donuts! I’de rather go to Dunkin Donuts instead!! πŸ˜‰

  7. Maybe?

    Do you have donuts?? xD

    In terms of mapping it is pretty good. The map is quite detailed and had a bunch of custom content.

    However, in terms of gameplay it is not very good. I don’t think cutscenes belong to HL2 or HL2 mods and the beginning was terrible. The player was unarmed, yet there were metrocops everywhere. The first time I played I could not find a gun, so I died. The second time I played I found the gun and died right after picking it up. The third time I played I rushed straight to the gun but a metrocop blocked the doorway and I could not reach it. I died. The fourth time I played I actually managed to grab the gun and kill all the metrocops.

    After that, it wasn’t that bad. However, the beginning ruined the whole map. Also, it was quite short.

    In short: play it only if you are very bored and prepare for an annoying beginning

    There is a few problems with this, so called modification as of which I would not even call it that.

    This is more of a single-player map for Half-Life 2 Episode 2, and you don’t even need the extra models that have been included they are the same Combine Police models that are already offered in Half-Life 2.

    The entire map for me only lasted maybe 2.5 minutes game-play wise, and I think the language spoken in this is Russian not English. The developer I am not sure if he did this on purpose, but the name of the modification is called “Donuts”, but it really seems to me like he spelt the name improperly I think he was really trying to spell the word “Doughnuts”.

      Donuts is a valid spelling of Doughnuts, at least in the U.S. πŸ˜‰
