Ok I'm going to start by saying that this game isn't "bad". It just has some problems.

Pros:
Multiplayer
Not dead. -The game isn't dead! There are still servers with people!

Cons:
Chaotic -Ok. This game is very chaotic for me(even when there is only 2 or 3 players)
Too many weapons -Not much of a problem, but a little too much
Buggy
Not as good as TFC or Half-life 2 deathmatch

Ok now for some ratings.

Gameplay: 8/10 -Would be better without chaos and the bugs
Music/Sounds: 7/10 -No music that I know of. The sounds are ok though.
Community: 9/10 -The community is fine and ISNT DYING

The overall rating is 8/10. Now that is NOT BAD. It is very good, but the chaos really bothers me(along with bugs). Another reason i do not recommend this is because there are many better TDM or DM games out there such as Counter-strike, Half-life 2 deathmatch, and TFC/TF2. If you want a half life deathmatch game, then get HL2 deathmatch. It is less chaotic, less glitchy, and more fun. I will continue to play this game, but it still bothers me a little.

----- PLEASE READ BEFORE BUYING THIS! -----

This game is no longer functioning and should not be bought. A few years ago I would've recommended this game to everybody, but due to the Steampipe update back in 2013 this game was entirely ruined. Before I go on, let me define the word "ruined" as it's used in this context. By "ruined" I mean that this game is so properly glitched that you cannot even change your player model anymore! Yeah, that should give you an idea of how much Valve cares for their games.

I blame Valve for this, but mostly an incompetent and lazy person whose name starts with an A and ends with a D, that was supposed to fix this using the input from the community on GitHub.

So yeah, rather buy the normal HL because not only do you get the singleplayer portion of the game with the multiplayer, the online play is still functioning like it should and there is at least a player base. Oh, and if you are planning to buy Half-Life Source which is the other half of this, then don't. It might not be equally broken, but broken enough to make you mad.

Or just get Black Mesa, then you will at least get something that is prettier on the eyes and functioning like it should.
