A lot of HL2 mods that I've played all require some firearm to get past any enemies I come by. What Research and Development does is strip you of your firearms and equip you with a gravity gun, bug pheromones and more. The opening scene's leaves you questioning where you actually are and how in the heck you got there in the first place. You start off witnessing headcrabs being executed and then returning the favor to some combine.

From the beginning the puzzles are a bit difficult and mix between medium and hard. The visuals have great detail and the high structures give a great depth of field to the surroundings. The puzzles are a delight and the combat even more.

Excellent mod! Got through it a few days ago. Some sections and fights are very frustrating, but I like the puzzle oriented feel of the mod overall and the final fight is actually kinda fun to go through. Well worth the download.

Too bad none of my computers are good enough to run HL2. That's why I have TOB on 360...looks fun, though.

Awesome mod I just beat it 9.5/10. Ranks up there with Paranoia for HL1!

Sweet, looks good. Too bad I have Ep. 2 on the 360, and only the original HL2 on the PC :/
