12 years old and still one of the best fps games to date. Very few active servers these days are stock settings, but it's still a blast with the add-ons. Another plus is that there is still a fairly active and (relatively) non-toxic playerbase. Overall 10/10, modern AAA shooters should take some notes from this gem.

This was probably my first game ever on Steam, after doing the whole Half Life series. Downloading this to see if the servers are still up. Hope they are, I had so many memories of this grinding it out with teams 10 years ago and totally "pwning" noobs.

Half-Life 2: Deathmatch is an epic Half-Life 2 multiplayer game that was still alive in December 2015 then slowly died until February 2016 when it died and nobody really plays it anymore. You might actually find some people who still play this however.

9.5/10

It's basically Call of Duty for those of you who want to play Call of Duty but don't like the fanbase/don't plan on spending >40 dollars for a good Run n' Gun.
Go try it.

Games good.

Roleplay servers are Decent for what they are.

Admins are abit random and unpredicable so some are good and some are bad.

Deathmatch mode is not for the faint of heart as its now a old game and people who are great at the game will only beat you down untill you begin to cry and rage. Not recommended for newbies unless you have someone holding your hand.

There is other modes but i dont think about them much.

Other then that buy this game if you are willing to get your ♥♥♥ kicked by Experts.

This game is actually pretty fun if you find the right servers. I recommend the Saigns servers since they are non stop run and gun. Especially their RUNOFF and LOCKDOWN maps!

This game,,.. was my first game on steam, other than the Half Life 2 Demo, way back in 2009.
Good times of killbox servers, spamming classico (tenacious D) in chat, blowing myself up trying to grenade jump and rocket jump, finding a server with a good map rotation and regular players, and yes, throwing a toilet at my friend.
Definately my first source game and the best. Played it for years, it's still so fun.
Totally Reccommended. And those who got it free received a real gem of a multiplayer game.

The very first game that I played on Steam. It brings back many memories of learning how to play fps games on PC and introduced me to VALVE in general. I promptly got the VALVE Complete Pack and have loved all of their games since.

This game is litterally just HL2 but instead of playing through a story, you play as a rebel or combine, and fight the other faction. It is simply a Deathmatch game, but there is team deathmatch. All the hours I have put into it were mostly from long ago, but every time I launched the game I had fun with friends, and even made some new ones. I have no idea how popular it is now, but if you still have a group of friends that like to play it you can host your own server and play, or even find one of the empty ones to join.

Absolutely Brilliant action. Playable with bots so no worries with dying servers. The game itself is a reminder of how the simple multiplayer games of then can outshine those of now. Best speed of fps action. Buy it with the half life complete pack.

I've seen reviews saying it's hard to find servers.
IGNORE THEM. It's easy to find a server. There are plenty at any one time.

Anyway, this game is AMAZING. Don't know if it's 200 hours of (total) HL2 playing or what, but it's HEAPS fun.
And then when I find I'm coming first on my first game, well, even more fun.

Play this NOW.
