Actually surprsingly fun. I had a blast playing just 1 hour of it, and on my first match I was in first place racking up so many kills. Give it a try, I thought it was great fun.

I used to play this game 5-6 years ago and it was so much fun. Seeing only 300 players in the game makes me sad... I no longer play the game and in the eyes of many this game is dead, but in my heart this game will never die.

I got this game in half life bundle so it's okay for run and gun, but only people who really enjoyed half life 2 and deathmatch style will appreciate this game.

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

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 brings the balanced weapons and the almighty Gravity Gun to a deathmatch setting to let you do what all good men have only dreamed of.

Toss a toilet at a mans face.

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.

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.

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.

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.
