Não há um único motivo para recomendar isto.
É curto (15 minutos), sem graça e feito de maneira amadora, coisa que não é mencionada em nenhum sítio.

oh i hadn't wrote a review for it yet
it's really bad.
the game is just awful.

For starters, some 12 year old kid made a different mod, who lived in Sweden, and mainly spoke Swedish.
That mod had it's own custom models and textures, maps, enemies, so on so forth.
Own music, own sounds, and over 30 maps (I think, that game was pretty long)
It also had pretty fluent english, I never noticed a single typo.
That kid is grown up, and his name is ruMpel.
Oh and he made another modification which shouldn't be compared to this.
Like how Afraid of Monsters shouldn't be compared to this.

Some grown-up ♥♥♥♥♥♥ bag went in ♥♥♥-effort to make like, two-three maps.
It had horrible grammar (a patch had been released, mission faild).
For god's Sake, he obnoxiously advertised himself in his own game.

Obviously I don't recommend this game.

Go play Gunman Chronicles or something, IDK.
That's also a nice mod.

Uh, I guess it's an okay custom map for Half-Life.
Nothing special, though. Music's a bit too loud and that final boss was pretty damn stupid.

This mod is terrible! You don't need to pay for it, but you'll be wasting too much of your time. I think that your time is too valuable to be wasted on this! I'll be happy to tell you why. Before I start though, be aware of the fact that the mod has two levels only, from what a lot of people said. I also couldn't get to the second level because of technically issues, the game crashed always!

You're Andrew Winner, a Black Mesa scientist tasked with the recovery of these strange crystals that come from the Xen dimension. Sounds like a big adventure involving different scenarios and awesome levels. No, don't expect that, the story doesn't go very deep either.

You know what Half-Life 1 does well? Pacing! Half-Life 1 doesn't throw you everything all at once. Gradually, the gameplay is kept fresh by throwing the necessary weapons and enemies over time. It also gives you a good number of ammunition, not too much and not too little. This game throws everything all at once ruining the pacing and that also wrecks the balance too.

Levels are too small and have cheap spawn traps. I entered a room filled with soldiers that easily tore me apart with bullets without me having the chance to ready myself. I can't shoot them unless I get in front of them, of which then they slaughter me!

The first boss level is ridiculous! It's a silly-looking monster that drops his Barnacle-like tongue and all you need to do is move around. There are also projectiles that are too slow to hit you. The boss is so weak that I beat him in 30 seconds. This is nothing!

This game is clearly unoptimized and unpolished. I had problems launching it since it said the executable was missing, the game would crash randomly and when I tried to go to the next level, it blocked! My PC laptop isn't game-focused, it's a Toshiba L500-13W but it can easily run without any difficulty Half-Life 1 and the Source version too. It can even run Half-Life 2 at 60 FPS! With this game I had to turn off vertical sync so the frame rate wouldn't drop below 30, but even then it had problems holding onto 60! This game is made in the GoldSrc, one of the most basic and oldest engines to date but it doesn't preform well. It's not finished from the looks of it. Finally, I can't get to the next and last level of the game!

The only thing the mod does well is the gun remodels and some action sequences. Why is it on Steam? Why was it greenlit? How? I do not know but do not play it for the love of whatever you consider holy! I don't recommend it!
