Hunting Down the Freeman: The Seven Hour Chore

2 084 819 views | 20 Mar. 2018

We're reviewing Hunt Down

We're reviewing Hunt Down the Freeman, a game wearing Half Life's coat and jumping brazenly onto steam. It's bad, very, very bad, and join me as I take you through, analyzing and picking apart each and every little bit of this terrible, terrible title. I review it's cutscenes, story, and particularly gameplay to demonstrate how it fails to do what Half Life 2 did flawlessly, while also failing on it's own merits, it's rife with glitches, bad acting, and it's just shit.

It also has Keemstar playing the US president, while IHE and Pyrocynical play US marines, it's fucking wild.

Your Average Scotsman

Huh. You know, on rewatching this, you can actually see the shadow of the MP5 before you pick it up at 5:27

So, they forgot to place it in an area where the light can better see it and they placed it under the fucking map by accident.

the gman subtitles font is missing

To the game's credit, Mitchell's more slow, methodical combat makes sense considering he's an HECU unit, but the rest of the game just does not work well with this.

Infinite Beak

I want to get everyone who developed this game, sit them down, and force them to watch every developer commentary in every Valve game

Artem Orekhov

Nick would have been a much better character if he spoke with a Cockney accent.

Adam: Do you remember when we first met?
Tehsnakerer: I don’t even know who you are.

old ally

Hunt Down The Freeman was so bad Valve had to make a new Half Life so people can forget about it

Mikey Unovapix

I can only hope for this to be remade, fixed, and done right. I'm talking straight back to the drawing board. Cutscenes, gameplay, combat, level layout, and iron out every other problem as well as all the legal fumbles and properly pay anyone involved. This could've been a decent game. Unfortunately I have a feeling we'll see Half-Life 3 released long before this hot mess ever gets fixed.

Trevor Philips

They obviously stole this shit

Tea And Crumpets!

It's just Gmod with FAS weapons and parkour mod

Raul Gonzalez

Berkan is malicious & incompetent
Hired by Activision the next week

Little little Tiny baby mann

Call of half life looks cool

Sergeant Johnson, Union Aerospace

Such a shame there's no good seven hour war game. Two years later, and it's still garbage

Andrew Witham

Hunt Down the Refund!

Qwerty

Its 4am
And I'm back again
I wish this video was 7 hours long so I had more tehsnakerer to help me ignore my life

Nekroz_Of_Super_Dora

Iirc the guy that made this game got a job at Blizzard. Good for him I guess

Gerardo Tarifa

This game makes Freeman look like "the bad guy" and they have made him act like that in the presentation, when in reality, Freeman in Black Mesa wanted to survive and stop the storm of portals

Lucian Ganea

Wait wait wait...how did Mitchell get in a hospital after he's fucked up by "Gordon" if Black Mesa was nuked? And they even put Adrian in the game, so OF is canon to HDTF story

Jake Shepherd

31:12 "We've been going through the unrelenting horror of the 7-Hour War." Proceeds to dome soldier by accident and not even stop firing.

Alpha Noodle

One of the best lines I heard in a while
"you fucked up my face"
gunshot

cost mceleoy

This is why I'm dumb Freeman sucks and also they need to like do tips like so you can like for your first playthrough it should ask you at the beginning do you want to play the training simulator just to get the feel of how the controls work

Dorei Games

Larry was the only good part of this game

Mister Laxenface

My man Pyros here, Hell Yeah!!!!

VortexMech 888

The guy who was left to upkeep the game hates it so much that he's improved it simply by insulting it using achievement names and menu screens

Discord Dan

If anything, i think the burning tree represents what a fuckin mess the game was in

Arco Games

giv up to combe

dragontavern2214

Why are vortigaunts fighting for the combine in the seven hour war? If I’m remembering correctly the vortigaunts were enslaved by the hl1 boss which is dead so the vortigaunts are free. So did the combine just go to xen and enslave the vortigaunts right after Gordon left?

Denis Boiarskii

Man, the Berkan dude leaves such an unpleasant impression for some reason. I just don't feel right when he says whatever about Half-Life and his game. Weird stuff though.

7emidio

If G-man was an "omnicient trickster", Shephard would have being killed by him. Ironic, eh?

Qwerty

Ah yes, I return to watch this for the 5th time

Ryan Hutchinson

This has to be the most well-organized and structured review for Hunt Down The Freeman I’ve seen. Clear and concise, straight to the point. Detailed and informative descriptions of genuine problems with core game design. Thought provoking arguments that keep the video interesting despite its length. I feel like I’m watching a crash course at a university talking about how not to design a game. Very well done. ?

Peperino 216

Why is nobody talking about the ugly zombie models?

None of Your business

They tried to be metal gear

Wobbles and Bean

You know what's sad? This could have been a genuinely fun game, had it only been made by a competent person. The premise is genuinely interesting: G-Man essentially made this guy untouchable to serve his own purposes, but Mitchell doesn't know that. Think of the gameplay possibilities: you could suicide bomb groups of enemies, knowing you will be brought back by the G-Man (although with a large penalty cuz otherwise there's no point), but it'd be an option in a pinch.

Really play up the fact that you're the villain, if you're gonna be the bad guy, HAVE FUN WITH IT! Make Mitchell an over-the-top deranged psycho heIIbent on killing Gordon Freeman, completely blind to everything else! Set fire to a convoy of desperately needed supplies being sent to survivors, just cuz you heard Freeman secured the shipment! Strap bombs to rats you find in the wreckage of society, to use as living grenades! Laugh maniacally as they go "squeek BOOM!" Come ON, we could have had so much fun with this!

mic nic

The big bulky aliens were not combine they were just aliens and the dev's who made hunt down the freeman just mixed old half life 2 concept art

Mitchell's hand after 5 shots out of an 500 magnum revolver:
"you fucked up my bones".

Brad

This is a great video. Good job man.

birdy boy

Hunt down the freeman could’ve really been something

Terry R.

I like how this game from 2017 looks notably worse than the game from 2004 it’s based on.

Honestly graphical fidelity aside I’d say Half Life 1 looked better too.

ok

Imagine instead of a normal Freeman they see an accelerated back hopping being of pure energy running at the speed of light

The director of this game comes off as moronically fucking dense.

I finally fully realized why you said wording... Madlad gonna burn the factory and take the kids with him in the fire lmfao.

Try to do a game AND then critize something You loser.

6:46 This voice actor would be so freaking good as Grand Admiral Thrawn from Star Wars

Riley S.

I watch this video a healthy 3 times a year.

Lorenzo Seixas

In a short span of time, this probably became my most-watched YouTube video ever. The editing is on point, the jokes are simply amazing and the review is superb. For the sake of humanity, you need to do more stuff like this, @Tehsnakerer.

I feel like the twist at the end with G-Man would be actually great if the rest of the game wasn't awful.

ClusterHopper

TWO MILLION VIEWS!

Lucas Bolek

2nd one is coming out I'm excited boys let's see if they've learnt literally anything from this game

2501

I wonder if there's something to salvage here.
What if a group of people take the premise and story and manage to fix it or turn it into something good.
It's probably neither possible or worth it but I wonder nonetheless.

The Madrummer

31:27 I laughed really hard at that! "Two important questions need to be asked about this plan: What's above the sea, and can the Combine teleport?" X'D

Aiden Cross

Don’t you just love Half-Life source when you have to escape Black Meessa

Discord Dan

I got a feeling that they only started loosing their budget when they got to making the combine, thats why they probably ended up making the combine with only 15 different shapes from blender 20 if you really try and look

You fucked up my face.

Vlad Olteanu

I managed to keep somehow of a straight face up until I saw "Bitchell" in the subtitles. Then I lost it.

Mother Hors

57:70 Best point made. What the game should have been.

Toyota Avanza

Plot twist: the dev really love Metal Gear Solid, so they just create this game lol

Edison Gatica

god this game should have been triple checked before handing over the source engine to make it, what did they even told valve to make this possible? if you tell me that your game is about a guy whose face got fucked by gordon seeking revenge... then you can fuck off and get out of my building. Also i didn't knew if the "city 17 in alaska" bit was part of the video jokes or it really happened, the game is so bad, that it make me doubt about the video's jokes hahahaha

Knicksi38

Hunt down the Freeman is a massive disgrace to the half-life Community it's so bad that even makes Half Life Source look like a decent remastered

OlafttheGreat1998

It's a shame this game was such a dumpster fire. The premise is genuinely interesting, but the execution is laughable.

noire

ok but 32:15 was funny

Trap Logic

Combine can teleport?

Nero's Gaming Hole

Just read a review for this on steam, it said
"Go buy winrar instead".

Four Scarlet

If someone remakes this game I have a feeling it has a CHANCE to be good.

Caster Madness

This video has value, and therefore i absolutely loving this alot!

Imagine if Hunt Down the Freeman was good.

I think larry may be homosexual

DrDan 64

Look It could not have been Gordon at the beginning as he never had a helmet there wasn't one there just saying.

The Raddest Chad

The virgin Mitchell vs. the chad Freeman.

FireFox UWU

in about 14:50 you talk about an enemies which by your term are "combine troops" but in the game they explain how they actually aren't from the combine since the combine had not even started to take over earth at that point

Am_Yeff

Fun fact: The parkour is stolen from A fucking gmod swep

Quiras2

I don't care if I'm late. You sir have the best subtitles ever!

unfa

30:30 Honestly I think the introduction of Colonel Cue is the best moment in this game. The voice actors really manage to pull off some decent comedy there, even though I don't think they've had any direction. Sure, the animation is a little awkward and stiff, but I think it still works. I like these characters much more than the main ones... Too bad they never have another appearance and are killed off-screen.

Fallout 3
Super Smash Brother Brawl
Mario Kart: Wii
Persona 4

Then remember this fucking game.

I make a tradition to watch this once a week at best and once a month at worst. The entire video is just bafflingly ridiculous no matter how many times I watch it.

I actually watched the entire stream just for some context on some of this random shit and there was none. It was a damn good ride though.

GlowBox

DIO

Mario Galaxy 2007. This 2008.

Christ almighty, the voice acting is embarrassing. It's almost as if they just found some random junkies/smackheads off the street and brought them in to do VOs in exchange for drug money. When you spent over 10 years to develop a turd like this, you know you're in dire need of a career change.
