that was great
i wasn't looking at the clock, but it felt like i was playing for a long time... and that doesn't usually happen with flash games. the only things you could really improve on would be to maybe have some background music, and maybe a boss at the end, although having said that, it WAS a relief when i got to the end with almost no ammunition to find i'd killed everyone; i was trying to shoot that last guy with the sign for a long time, haha, imagine how foolish i felt wen i realiazed you couldnt :P. anyway, top game, i reckon for its great time value its 5-worthy. and to everyone who's complaining that theres no story, i think the whole point of this was to give freeman a backstory, and im positive that not every single millisecond of his pre-half life 'life' was exciting. good game keep it up :D.
The title pretty much explains it all. I just walked around for the first 5 minutes and got bored. It's a shame because Half-life 2's a really great game and even more importantly a EXCITING and FUN game 2 things this was lacking,
The physics are really good, but there are several things that need a lot of improving:
-The english is pretty terrible sometimes. Why don't you have someone who actually speaks english as their first language to review your text?
-Climbing and dismounting stairs is annoying and difficult.
-Gordon should be able to run faster than he currently can. Slow pace of game = boredom
-Give Gordon a GUN to start off with and more enemies to fight! It is really boring at the beginning of the game running along the screen (very slowly) and having nothing to shoot or interact with.
As I said, you've done a great job with the physics code, and the graphics are nice. But the gameplay needs to be improved dramatically for there to be any fun!
Great physics - gameplay needs improving
The physics were very cool; however, the gameplay wasn't all that great. I didn't like it how the screen scrolls far left or right when you face those ways (which ultimately prevented you from aiming straight up). You should also allow the player to jump fast while sprinting. The animations were pretty boring and looked like they lacked any realism. If you fixed up the few gameplay flaws and improved the animations - it'd be a very high quality flash game - the physics were very fun!!
Oh - and more very important thing - Gordon Freeman DOESN'T talk :P
Good, with some gameplay flaws
The idea is great, and with a little work, it could be significantly better, the ability to have more than one weapon at once, or at least be able to drop your current weapon to switch with a more suitable one is really necessary. Also, you need to be able to shoot straight up.
