    OK as I said in comments under the recent Challenge download, this has been a SUPERB week for game play. And Tales From The Source is yet another reason why! don’t know what to do with myself now that its over…

    If you haven’t played it yet, be prepared for (possibly) an emotional merry-go-round of opinion on this one, as you get immersed into a sometimes and I’m sure deliberately frustrating experience. But look at the layout, the design concept.

    You are sent on a seemingly simple mission, and right away you experience roadblocks. Make sure to look around, and consider alternate less than obvious locations/ways. The author keeps the action going all the time, you will find yourself saying something along the lines of “will you please get out of my face???” Anyway, luckily there is lots of health and ammo around. Good thing.

    Have fun! I sure did. Thank you for making this 馃檪

    This was pretty fun to play. And also follow my philosophy about good Half-Life Mods: “realistic story told simple and neat gameplay”. This whole little map has it all. An excellent layout with great use of the space, and clever beatable puzzles.

    Also, the combat was pretty solid and fair from the beginning until the end. The last part, the escape part was also a perfect mix between combat and that rushed escape feeling, overall the story made it clear that those CMB were really pissed off with you because you took that special piece of technology in the turret.

    So yeah it was a real joy to play this one, so give it a try, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

    I played this mod twice and second time I managed to finish it.
    Short mod, but very good and varied. Because of such mods I am still interested in Half-Life 2 series and even began making models for the game.

    It was a verry fun experience with a perfect mix between progression, combat and thinking

    didn’t directly know what to do at the end with the turret

    I liked the rushing end 馃檪
