It was basically a short mission containing new graphics. I honestly thought this was going to be,"explore" the lighthouse and town that would take hours, i was disapointed when i found out you can do this under 15-40 min. The graphics were good though. I reccomend this if you want to see a new tpye of grapics or whatever, but people, IT IS NOT A GAME.

One of the most inspiring, most enlightening games of it's time. After finishing this game for the first time, I had to go back and play it several more times. In fact, I replayed this over 70 times and I still wasn't able to fully soak the story of the lone fisherman and his quest to help the protagonist Grodan Friedman and his trusty companion, the crowbar. I spent many hours up at night just trying to fathom what exactly went through the mind of Friedman as he traversed through the barren landscape of Highway 17. Don't even get me started on how much the High Dynamic Range adds to the whole game. Seriously. I mean, you couldn't get anymore detail and lighting even if you went outside, took a rocket to the surface of the sun, and stood there even though you'd be burning up. Overall, I give this game 8.76 times the square root of pi out of ten. Plus, you get more Garry's Mod Props. Awesome, right?

This game is a great piece of art demonstrating all of the components leading to the new version of SOURCE, I find it very interesting and a fun little game.
