Zombie Panic: Source is a cooperative survival horror Half-Life 2 Modification, the sequel to the popular Half-Life Modification "Zombie Panic". As a member of a party of survivors you find yourself without provisions or any military support. Fending off the undead has never been more difficult, but with a large variety of fire arms, explosives, and unique items, the task is not impossible. This time through we introduce you to new characters that you can control, numerous weapons including a large list of melee weapons, and the Carrier zombie which can turn friend into foe. We started it all and are happily continuing the fight!

Originating in December of 2007, this game is considered one of the best Source mods ever created (not coming from me, but from a majority, because that would be bias!).
An exceptional FPS, with a great community. Gameplay almost never gets repetitive, with numerous maps and unique players. Visuals are what you'd expect from a Source mod; motion blur, HDR and whatnot. Teamwork can be very critical depending on the map, such as requiring zombies to work together in specific strategies or survivors sticking together to heighten the chance of survival, although teamwork is usually not present due to poor communication or stubborness.
Lag compensation is quite horrid and the hit boxes can be also which makes me deduct a point on the score.
The game is quite easy to get started in, but has the typical motto of "hard to master". It is difficult for starting players, but you get better at the game rather quickly, so do not feel discouraged if you lose a lot in the beginning! Some servers offer modifications such as models, trails, stats, infection cure, and more. The community is slowly deteriorating away, but hundreds of players still play each day.

There are up to six survivors to choose from, all with their own unique voices and quotes. Survivors can use voice commands as mentioned, "panic" which gives you a temporary stamina boost, a flashlight, and many other actions. There are weapons of course, and unique melee weapons too. Some weapons include rifles, shotguns, chairs, IED explosives, grenades, and even props themselves.
Zombies must attempt to kill all the survivors before running out of time, lives, or the survivors reaching a point. The carrier is basically the 'alpha zombie', having more strength, health, and the ability to infect and 'roar'.

Modes you can play are objective mode (ZPO), survival mode (ZPS), team arena (ZPA), and hardcore (ZPH). An additional modded mode called Deathmatch (ZPD) is present, which pits survivors versus survivors. There are also some deathrun maps. Some maps may require you to barricade, and some may even require you to dodge blocks fired at you. The maps are very unique and creative, adding to the endless replayability factor. Some maps may be well balanced, or very survivor/zombie sided.
My overall score of this game/Source mod is: 9/10 and I highly recommend this game!

Side note: game's an incubator for Russian and Brazillian children shouting into their terrible mics.

My short time of playing Zombie Panic! Source have been great and I have adored every hour of my time playing! The best free game that I have ever invested almost 500 hours of my time on! The concept of Zombie Panic! Source is to survive and do the objectives, or survive long enough to kill all the zombies or until the round time is up. I, personally, love the survival maps and the notion that you turn into a member of the undead once your life as a survivor ends. Before I started playing ZPS I wanted a game with this similar idea and was satisfied when I finally got to experience this game. If you haven't played this game, I suggest you give it a try. I'm sure everyone would enjoy it once they learned the basics of how to play. This game will have you staying up an extra couple hours during school nights. Or, for others, delaying the time they depart for work, just so they could get an extra couple rounds in.
9/10

Good game, good memories, great gameplay.
One minus of this game: Most of people in this game doesnt care about teamwork. Its too hard to give me some damn bullets, when I really need em?
Its to hard to work in team and complete objectives together?
Are you playing for damn kills only, without care about your team? Well get in Church\Cabin 24\7 servers and play there...
Oh yeah, and sv_pure 1\2 abuse.

In total: This game is fine, just give a try.
