Garry's Mod review
The description of Garry's Mod
Garry's Mod is the most functional sandbox game. After the first entry, you will be able to get acquainted with your first map, which can be a platform for the development of your creative potential. You'll have access to the special tool that edits features of objects (colour, size, etc.).
It's necessary to tell the story of the game. Everything has begun when the Source engine was released. Its main features are rather realistic physics and extreme flexibility. That's why Harry Newman has developed a modification, based on the engine.
Now, it's a real game that still hasn't got any goals, campaign or something like that. Actually, any session here begins with the same: you turn out to be on the chosen map with a full arsenal of weapons from HL2, as well as an extra useful object that has become the subject of the whole mod – the portal gun.
The second basis of the gameplay is the menu. There it's possible to create various heroes and all sorts of things. Also, you can create live NPCs, both good and bad, get access to a wide range of tools, and change the basic parameters of the world (the speed of time, gravity, etc.).
By the way, you can find here various kinds of materials. Many models of characters and vehicles were taken from other projects, based on the Source engine. Garry’s Mod online game even allows you to insert YouTube videos into the game items in order to give instructions on how to get through certain sections.
Garry's Mod is one of the few games where there are no strict rules. You can create static scenes, pictures, and even a stop-motion video. Also, it's possible to have fun role-playing games and just to construct various buildings.
The game was made in 2006 that's why graphics are not so pretty. But it's not a big problem for Garry's Mod. In Steam, there are many free modes that can make visuals of the game very attractive and physics realistic. For example, you can find special shaders, improvement of various textures, etc. As for the interface, it's rather intuitive. There are shown only the necessary buttons.
In the arsenal of the player, there are all possible weapons from the game Half-Life 2. But the most important thing is that, among other things, a physical gun was also added. Due to it, you can easily move objects when you click the left mouse button and freeze them in space with the right mouse button.
Also, when you don't want to construct anything, it's possible to run, drive various kinds of transport, shoot and do other actions. Controlling is performed by standard combinations on the keyboard.
