One of the most expertly crafted mods I've seen. Whoever made this is very knowledgeable about level design and pacing. It's a must play.

This game starts slow and easy, but as you descend into the madness that lurks beneath the face of the small lonely island, it picks up pace and before you know it you are caught in a hell-like place with hardly any hope of ever escaping again.

This game is truly great. I played through it in like 2 hours but playtime may vary since I went through it pretty fast. One thing is for sure though; it did NOT only feel like 2 hours, if you are interested at all, defenitely check it out, it is amazing.

tldr; dl and play this, it's a must for hl or even just general fps fans

Great game, I think the best mod out there. It changes the HL experience but with the same similar gampplay, as the enemies are more realistic, harder to kill, sneaky little gits, the ammo is well placed and in good but not exhaustive quantities, you need to use grenades rather than blast your way through. The story and use of the area's is good, with retracing steps, especially to escape, as you would expect going into a facility like that.

Thoroughly enjoyed it, great work!

The problem with games like these is that Valve will never have to worry about making HL3 anytime ever.

That's how good this is.

Great Game, a bit confusing at 2 parts, had to look online. I get making you think, but it needs a little bit of obviousness. Great Mod!

An excellent HL2 mod that adds some cool levels and keeps the action flowing, with an excellent soundtrack to boot.

Thanks to the author(s) for your dedication !

Free if you have Half Life: Episode One. I completed it in about 4 hours last night on Hard so it's not a very time consuming game either. Was very entertaining, very difficult at times which I believe is a positive. Actionpacked to the max, always a firefight behind every corner. The map was amazing, a bit like The Silent Cartographer from Halo: Combat Evolved. Music in true Half Life-style, pumping beats to get your heart rate up. Puzzles and combat as in Half Life although more combat oriented, set in the same universe.

Spawn system/level design is one of the best I've seen. There's a set number of enemies per "event" (like opening a door, there's a lot of these), meaning you can clear it out entirely and feel somewhat safe. But the "events" put spawns far away at times, making the enemies then run towards the sound of fire but only arrive after most things are dead, surprising you without feeling random and making the experience harder and more lifelike at the same time. Never coming at you alone, always from several angles. At times scaring me to screams, panicing against what seemed like impossible odds in the moment. Fast paced, fluid, brutal. Excellent.

If you have Episode One and like combat more than running around looking at the view then you should play it. That's not to say it's not a beautiful game, it's probably the best looking game in the entire franchise... and it's a mod.

I wonder what Adam Foster is now doing at Valve. He was hired because of his impressive mapping skills (and these show for sure), but they're not doing that now.

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 easily one of the best Half Life 2 mods. It offers a comfortably similar mission style to compliment Half Life 2. Minerva may be short in overall game hours, but if you enjoyed Half Life 2 you will definitely enjoy this reminiscent detour.

Minerva offers exactly what you would expect from what is a mod side story that is intent on delivering a unique and enjoyable experience with purposely simlar gameplay to Half Life 2.

I would highly reccomend Minerva to anyone that enjoyed the Half life 2 singleplayer experience, but is still craving more of what made Half Life 2 one of the best atmospheric story driven fps games. You will not be dissapointed.

Pretty much the best HL single-player mod. Adam Foster got hired at Valve as a direct result of his work here.

Bored of waiting for HL3 ? So am I, but here's a little something to make the wait easier.

MINERVA: Metastasis is a source based mod set in the Half life universe. Its amazing if you're into HL and it's universe, probably a bit less if you're not (you would definitly rather start by playing HL2)
It has similar atmosphere, mechanics (duh), and immersion than HL2 and it's Episodes. Consider it as a plus or a side quest to the main game, kinda the way Opposing force and Blue Shift are to HL1.
It's creator has worked at Valve so no wonder it is a good game !

I really enjoyed the map and plot. No spoiler, but I can tell you that once again you're gonna have to f*ck with some huge combine installations :D
It's hard to tell when the game events occur compared to City 17's events, I think it's just some Resistance action happening before Gordon's come back.

Only downside is that the game had some weird graphic settings the first time played it, it was really bright and well... quite ugly compared to what I was seing online.
If it happens to you (you can compare with the community page screenshots) add "+mat_dxlevel 90 +mat_hdr_level 2 +mat_hdr_enable +mat_fullbright 0" (no quotes) to your game launch options.

The game is free if you already own HL: E1, so get it !

Holy ♥♥♥♥ that was good. Short, sweet, and to the point. Unlike HL2, where you have to fight to clear an area, in Minerva you simply need to keep running. Forget killing everything, forget the loot. Just run. Survive.

I was on the edge of my seat for the entire ride. What a beautiful project.

Cons: Voice acting would have helped. Reading a message in the middle of combat only serves to take away from both.

9/10

This game is a fun romp through a Combine-controlled island that you must liberate for the Resistance. It’s a free mod and it’s worth playing, so give it a try. It is weird, though, how it’s always 100% brightness everywhere and navigating the map can be frustrating sometimes, but again: It’s free.
