[Mod] CSS Sci Fi 3: Hardwired

Post  Jakester on Sat Dec 10, 2011 12:37 pm

CSS Sci Fi 3 is a mod of HL2 that has the player take the form of a clone of gorden freemen, the protagonist of HL2. He is sent on missions by an unknown contact to help take down the combine.

Now, if your looking for a mod with a deep and interesting story, wrong place, the story in CSF3 is not the best. Its more the gameplay that makes it as fun as it is to play. The mod adds some new guns as well as a deep customization factor for the in game features (such as toggling the amount of gore, ragdoll types, AI, grapics, and other things.)
New features included in CSF3
Bullet time - Slows down the game severely and allows you to quickly drop a couple of enemies at the cost of your AUX power. (Has a few customization options in the config
Gordon kick - Simply walk up to someone, kick them in the face, and do a tad bit of damage, thats it. ( I believe the damage done is varied by your velocity.)
New weapons - Such as AK47, SVD, MP5, Grease gun, Laser rifle, airboat gun, Kar98, and much more.
More Gore - The gore isn't that fantastic. When bodies take an amount of damage in a short period of time, they explode into gibs. ( Can be editted in Config.)
New maps with objectives - Play missions on C:ss maps and other custom maps!
Some new grapics - Grapics have been slightly improved, most noticable is the blur from explosions.
And much more!


Gameplay
The gameplay in CSF3 is varied by how you want it to be, you can have enemies using shields and having better accuracy to make the game more tough. Or have them be the HL2 default for a bit less of a challenge. The battles may get a bit difficult but thats why god gifted us a quick save. Its especially useful for when you are being attacked by a strider and a squad of camo combine. overall, i think the mod maker did a fantastic job of polishing up the combat to make it a bit more intense.
