Wilson!?

Wilson Chronicles is fun and some areas are challenging. So far it is only about 1.5 hours long but it is really fun.... I WANT MORE of it! Can't wait till there is more

Some of the lighting isn't the greatest yet
Some areas I got confused, but eventually find it out
There is some references to other things and lots of little things hidden


9/10
Again can't wait till there is more added and hopefully more viarety of enemies

Overall, a good game that clearly had alot of work and time put into it. There were, as expected, problems. I loved the game, but I think some of the areas needed to be a little easier to get past. Not enemy wise, but puzzle wise. Also, make sure controller support is good, because it's annoying when it isn't. I know it says partial controller support, but I'm just trying to make sure controllers work atleast as often as mice and keyboards. Also, (Spoilers) the section where you fall down a vent and lose your weapons? You shouldn't lose your weapons. It just doesn't make sense.

I'm not sure if I can say all the problems of this game in a list. Therefore, I will tell you my experience in the game, start to finish, so you, esteemed reader, can know what to expect should you play this.

I take a quick look in the maps folder, and I see only 8 non-background maps. "Perhaps they are really big ones" I think.
I start the game. Main menu, intro videos, and soundtrack is good so far.
I start a new game. I end up in an apartment that has way too many doors and a parking lot that has enough space for 5 cars. I also accidently walk over the keys out of the apartment, and use the red car because I was watching a walkthrough by a French guy. I also notice that my crosshair drifted to the top left.
I'm treated to an interesting car ride, sort of like Inbound, except you don't control the car and can't move anything other than your head. I also notice that my player character drives with one hand and an oncoming truck beeps at me for staying on my side of the road with absolutely no one else on the road whatsoever.
I get to Black Mesa, where I meet Dr. "Hey, Over Here!" and his brother Dr. McTwitchylegs. Freeman kicks off the Resonance Cascade about 3 minutes after I arrive, and everyone but me immediately ends up dead or zombified.
I get my suit, and I find that I can't see my health or armor; only my flashlight. I also notice that my fists are absolutely useless against anything zombie.
I quicksave, finding that the game doesn't tell you it just quicksaved.
I restart, and my UI looks fine. I meet a bullsquid, and I find that they want to punch you instead of spit at you. I also find that Black Mesa had a problem with too many people getting their legs chopped off and headcrabbed in the water.
At about the fourth level, I decide that I'm done with the mind-numbing stupidity, so I turn on godmode and rush past all the enemies. During my rush, I found that the HECU just came in without any announcement whatsoever.
I also used noclip a few times to get past gates when I didn't give enough of a damn to find the switch the devs wanted me to pull, because the switches and doors you need to use are indistinguishable from the ones you don't use.
In the middle, there's a time skip, pushing you right into the time near "On a Rail". At this point, the HECU are replaced by their reskinned darker cousins, the Black Ops. You also see a few Controllers too, who move very fast, almost annoyingly fast. At about this time, I also get rather disgruntled that you can't even sprint in this game; since you can sprint in HL2, I can only assume that the devs deliberately turned it off.
In the surface level, where you are on the actual surface for about 20 seconds, you meet the Alien Grunts. They look like a cyclops slime monster, and while they do use their hivehands, they like to punch you in the face more. After I faced those guys, about 20 zombies showed up 20 seconds after I left the very clear room. Then I go down an elevator. The forums were very kind and gave me the access code to the next map via console.
When I went to the last map, I had no weapons, so I used an "impulse 101" to compensate. I then found that there is a *lot* of guns that the devs made that they don't let you use. After pulling out an AK, I see the first friendly NPC I've seen since the start of the mod. I start to feel that the mod might actually start to get better, because the NPCs were also using subtitles. After helping the friendlies fight the Black Ops, I walk back up to them, hoping for a stated mission objective like "There's some Black Ops in the other room. Waste 'em." or "The scientist team wants you to reactivate the thermal trackers. Here's the door.". But no, they just stared at me. There were no other exits, so I noclipped out and found that meeting the friendlies meant the end of the game. I was not amused, especially since the guard was calling me Gordon and referencing old times.

That's what you're going to get if you play this.
