I'm not afraid of ♥♥♥♥♥♥s
But I like making fun of them
It was made-up by some P.C. ♥♥♥♥♥♥
To make ♥♥♥ haters look stupid

Anti-homophobe by Brutal Truth
Is a pathetic attempt to be P.C.
Kevin's obviously not a homophobe
Because he's a ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥♥♥

This game is a classics.No doubt at all.I remember i receive this game when i was 10.i dont know why,but this game seems to be really attractive to me.when i turn on the computer,i start my hl2dm,and i just play it for a whole day.Day after day.

when i grow up im still playing this game until 16,it helps me get through all the depression and sad moment in my life.when i feeling upset,i sit on the computer desk and start playing hl2dm,after a couple of hours and im just pull myself together again and i can get ready for the next test.I remember those old days on puzzle map and coop map LOL

This game is surely my precious childhood memories,i hope valve can remaster this game but i know it wont come true because i know halif life 3 will never release too.So Sad.

Only recommend this game if you have a friend to play with,compare to few years ago,there are many active player before,but now there are just few player left.Recommend Coop map and Puzzle map for a lot of fun

ChildHood. 9/10

Half-Life 2: Deathmatch. Physics can be really silly, but there are great communities- both veteran and new, various aspects to open source benefits, and much fun to be had.

12 years later, and this game is still alive.

It's the multiplayer DM version of HL2, with every HL2 weapon + the CP stunstick. This game is one of the few Valve multiplayer games without a toxic playerbase.

What can I possibly say that hasn't been said abouth HL2: Deathmatch? It's all good, classic, old-style shoot-everything arena style fun. Though I must say it does tend to drag after about an hour or so playing straight.

If you're gonna get this game, make sure you either find a good server or some friends to play it with because sadly this little gem probably ha slittle online life left. Whenever I get on, more than half the servers have nobody on them and another 1/3rd is way too customized or geared towards veteran players.

Provided you can get some people to play with, this game is awesome. Throwing toilets at your friend's heads at 80 miles an hour has never been so fun. It's cheap and definitely worth the price- get it of you have some minor cash lying around, during a neat sale or just getting the whole damn Valve pack!
