A good mod, just need to do a bit of tweaking to get it working.


Goto "Library" and RIGHT CLICK "MINERVA: Metastasis" and click "Properties". Click "SET LAUNCH OPTIONS..." type "-game metastasis" without the quotation marks then click "OK". Click "CLOSE" and then now MINERVA: Metastasis should run.

This is one of the best things I've ever played, it deserves a sequel, the story telling is sorta like Marathon, it has a good amount of action, and the location, Adam Foster, if your reading this, the is AWESOME!!! If a sequel comes, it should have a log history so you can remember what "Athena" said, and maybe shed some more light on the person your playing as and "Athena" (Which kinda reminds me about Durandal from Marathon) as well. So I recommend this game? YES!!!! And maybe the sequel should be also for Half life 2 itself and episode 2.

For those - like me - who like the Half Life Universe, this game is a must!
Please make a sequel (or two or three...).
I would pay for that, definitely.
Thanks a lot!!!

This is a great mod! Great Story, awesome map design and it doesn't need custom textures. A great first mod for someone to get.
