Operation X

for Half-Life 2: Episode Two

10th December 2017

Escape. A simple word but one with many possibilities.

In this old school mod, you simply have to escape.

Don’t expect beautiful views , clever puzzles or rewards for careful exploring.

Expect some fun shooting enemies though!

Important Note About the Files

I have made two files available; A mod version and the maps. The maps just need to be installed into your EP2 maps folder, whereas the mod version needs to be installed in your SourceMods folder. In this case, either option is fine. I generally don’t like installing files into my base installation, but it’s only 5 map files and they can easily be deleted after you have played them.

  1. Phillip says Play It!

    I really didn’t know what to expect when I played this. Five maps that might not even be joined together (not sure why I though that) but what I got was a very fun run through some very simple settings.

    It doesn’t sound like much but I really did enjoy it. With some better planning, story elements, great visuals and some puzzles elements and this could be an absolutely fantastic mod.

    All in all, I enjoyed the simple gameplay and would recommend you at least try it. Just be aware that it’s not going to look very nice.

  2. Play It Later

    It’s plain and simple good ‘ol no-frills action just shoot everything and escape! Looks ugly and feels extremely old skool but what’s not to enjoy with a little gun love?

    I enjoyed most of the trip through these levels but I’d say Map 5 was the weakest of the bunch. Overall there are some good BAM BAM shooting maps here but nothing compared to what we normally experience from HL2. Anyhow, I enjoyed it and thanks for making a mod/map version (i used the maps method myself)

  3. Play It Now!

    I enjoyed this, sure it’s not as polished as glass like some mods/maps, but it wasn’t that bad and the gameplay was very good I thought. It was actually a lot larger than I thought it was going to be. With a little more time spent on it, it would be brilliant IMHO. It flowed well and there were no almost impossible puzzles to solve, most things worked as they should, though I could get stuck at ladder tops sometimes, but jumping as well as moving forward solved that mostly, except for one gantry I just couldn’t get on, but that was only for ammo and I had plenty anyway, so no big deal. For me it was a breath of fresh air after some of the things we’ve been offered recently…run and gun, do give it a go..it’s fun.

  4. Play It Now!

    I really enjoyed the good amount of traditional HL enjoyment, shooting and fighting. As previously mentioned it is larger than expected. The only thing is the fighting tends to get repetitive. It not a mod that outsmarts itself! I definitely recommend.

  5. Play It Now!

    It’s not fancy but it’s a steady set of maps that I enjoyed. I played the mod version which worked absolutely fine. There are a variety of enemies and you even get to use the Magnuson Device in a couple of places. The combat is pretty balanced and you always have enough ammo and healthkits around to keep you going. Definitely worth downloading and playing.

    Runs under Linux after renaming the maps Folder of the mod to lowercase.

    I guess the best way to depict this mod is “old school”. Is full of frontal but tactical combat, linear progression and a strong feeling of Multi-Player arena maps displayed as a Single-Player layout.

    Overall I like the whole intense combat on it until you reach the end, although I’d also have loved a basic storyline, which could have been easily inserted into the mod.

    All the way this is a fun medium length mod to play.

  8. Rigby

    If I didn’t dislike the combat system of Half-Life 2 so much, I’d have enjoyed this mod. But alas, I don’t, and this mod offers absolutely nothing but combat. I stuck through it, and some parts of the game are incredibly difficult – to the point where I had to literally cheat to clear them, and by the end of the game I just got bored.

    If you enjoy the combat system of Half-Life 2, you’ll like this, but personally, if I could vote, I’d give this a think twice.

  9. Play It Later

    It was a fun little package But like some other reviewer the general feeling was: “if this and that was present it would have been a really great mod”

    What I like :
    + clear progression with enjoyable combat
    + increasing difficulty
    + the first part were you progress verticaly and finally can see from where you come
    + not only horizontal but also vertical progression and combat

    What I dislike
    + repetitive texturing and environment
    + too squary to even boxy design
    + miss of variety in combat and challenge
    + too repetitive design for the last part with all those swinging door in continuous hallways
    + lack of surrounding (not accessible) design and area
    + no music no cooperation (at least trough voice acting), lack of sounds

  10. Play It Now!

    Ooh… I done it!

    The first thing that you will see is a simple level design. But after the clearing of the first map you will understand why I like this mod so much. It is a interesting and hard gameplay. I appreciate the gameplay more than the level design (because I can’t make a good level design too).

    Some technical troubles (cut textures of the map, combines are turned back to the player, manhacks don’t know how fly to player and so on) say that author do not know a many in mapping yet. But it doesn’t stop him to create a interesting mods.

    Keep it up!
