"They Hunger is yet another notch on Neil Manke's creative belt. It also marks the darker side of Manke, a macabre underbelly that was hinted at in previous levels...but has now been fully unleashed. Beware!" The Quake Map Hotel

"I would have to say this is one of the best Half-life Single Player Mods I have ever played, it has none of the normal Half-life monsters/alien stuff. It has all new enemies to defeat, it also has fantastic custom textures, outstanding custom sounds, new weapons and the greatest maps I have ever played!" FragPipe.com

"They Hunger(part 1) does a great job on putting a whole new spin on an already great game. With the promise of more episodes to come (there's a great cliff-hanger at the end), Neil is creating something that could rival that of even Gearbox's highly-regarded add-on, HL: Op For. Yes, that's how profesional this mod feels, and on top of that it's completely free (no $39.99 required to enjoy this mod)."   GA-Source
