True, but it that one brief level was the selling point of the entire game and looked piss easy too.

I think I'd rather play Postal 2 for that.

Odd how nobody remembers Half Life:Decay. Laughing


Never heard of it Neutral

Can't say I have either, unless you mean Half Life:They Hunger?

I must admit, I don't play FPS as much as I used to because most of the releases in the last 4 or 5 years have been so dull, I think it was only Doom 3 and Half Life 2 which maintained my interest in the genre and Quake 4 felt so dissappointingly clunky.


Most of today's FPS's are always involving WW2, the "War on Terror" and some other patriotic bullshit. I half wonder whether that's why we've got so many "militaristic/edgy/hardcore" teenagers who think war is so badass and cool, even though they run for their lives if a car backfires outside.


Absolutely spot on.
Although I liked the initial glut of WW2 shooters like "Return To Castle Wolfenstien", "Medal Of Honour", "Call Of Duty", the original "Day Of Defeat"(which was the VERY best out the lot), once "Americas Army" came out along with a load of bullshit Vietnam/Middle East shooters and especially "Soldier Of Fortune" (which is admittedly amusing on the gore/maiming content but sickeningly jingoistic), I really got pissed off big time with the whole genre and yearn badly for the more occult/sci-fi shooters of yesteryear.

I want a shooter game not some fucking political yank bullshit propaganda about how cool it is that American rules the world because it has the biggest guns.


Maybe, but it should at least be remembered that the closing chapter of Modern Warfare 2 involves playing as an SAS soldier shooting huge hordes of Americans, I thought that made a refreshing change.


And the bad guys were Soviets-I mean Russian Ultranationalists. Rolling Eyes

Then again, patriotic Russians can be just as grating as patriotic Americans.

Also, seriously, what did you think of Half Life:Decay?

"They Hunger" is brilliant example of modding. I heard there was a Doctor Who mod, that combined the plot of "Remembrance of the Daleks" and "Resurrection"

There was a brilliant Half Life multiplayer map inside the TARDIS which was situated in Totters Lane junkyard.

You could walk in and out of the TARDIS(which was really well done) operate some of the controls(the time rotor and the scanner which brought up The Master from "Castrovalva") and it even featured the Zero Room which had a floaty gravity.

It also had the cloister room with the entripied ivy ridden columns in and stone seats as featured in "Logopolis" where The Doctor talks to Adric.

The map you speak off which is like a combination of "Remembrance" and "Resurrection" actually sounds more like the single player Quake 1 mod with the Daleks in which again is another very very good mod.

Getting the rocket launcher out to splat Daleks is tremendous fun!

Much better than that recent PoohWho third person shit game released by the BBC.
