Imagine Valve had a boy genius.
He had excellent results, got his PHD and for a time was its favourite son.
Now this guy works in a corporation, and he is barely remebered for his genius by his coleagues.
Valve, tell your son you love him, give him a big hug and don't let him waste his talent - he deserves a better job!

This game is AWESOME, it's fast paced (try to play COD and then go back to HL2DM and you'll see what I'm talking about).
Also the ONLY game that lets you kill your friends with a heating radiator! 10/10

See what I'm talking about:

After 10 years still a good game with nice physics engine. Slowly the community is almost dead, but some good players and servers you can still find. At deathmatch its better than CounterStrike, at teamdeathmatch not as its not so high tactical game. Maps are also many nice ones around made by the community. Some servers use funny mods or settings. The community itself could be a bit more friendly, as some players flaming around a lot. But in other games its mostly the same. About gameplay... it takes a while till you get involved with some tricks and the physcannon, but after a while you won`t miss that game. Cheaters are also some around, but not as much as in CounterStrike. Try to learn nade-throwing with physcannon and good jump techniques beside your aim, than you have a lot of fun. check out hl2dm.net, tsgk.com, half-life-gaming.net, bloodsuckers.de.

Easy to learn and hard to master, easy to play but hard to win. One of three best online oldschool shooters besides UT2k4 and CS 1.6.

P.S. Lagged, bugged, causing many people to insanely raging mode and make their assess bleed with blood from pain it hurts, but still lovely by every1 around here in community.

Not reccomended for ♥♥♥♥♥s.
