Half life deathmatch source is an amazing game, even though its pretty old and it has no next gen graphics, its still a realy fun addicting game,But i would have rated it 10/10 instead of 7/10 if there was actually someone playing it,

Personal rating: 6/10

PROS:
+ fun gameplay
+ lots of mods

CONS:
- not that many active players
- clunky graphics

Comment:
Same case as with Team Fortress Classic, I've missed the golden days of this game when there were many players. Nowadays the community of active players is small and there are not a lot of games to join. I got this game with some other Valve games I wanted so I took a look at it. It's a classic Quake-type shooter so there isn't much to criticize. Gameplay is fun but lack of people to actually play with pulls down the score I give it.

If your one to enjoy the source engine, but want to play the classic half life 1 deathmatch, then this title is recommended, but personally for me, the classic brought to the source engine is crap.

The only people there are left playing this are diehard HL veterans. Go get HL: DM 2 instead. It will be impossible for any newcomers to get a chance to learn the game to know or survive on the servers.

I just got this in a bundle, and not many people play it so my play time is very low, but holy ♥♥♥♥, more people NEED to play this. Some of the most fast-paced, over the top, frantic fun I've had on any game. 10/10

hellow and welcome to my surprize review of half-life Deathmatch:source dont worrie half-life 2 is next for real this time now this game is amazing i will say i like online multiplayer games. Now this game is fun, its like team fortress classic only better, it makes you start with two guns a pistal and a shot gun then you can pick up other guns which they all are completely usefull. The game play is just like half-life 1 or source the graphics are better than half-life 1. It a bit more selshaded. This game for me has no problems i never had lag, crashes, or slowdown. The game is fun, I never felt bored or wanted to change a game, i just never wanted to stop. Now time to score this game its a 10/10! This game deserves its score, its fun, hard, and funny at times. Hope you buy this game and like my review.Cya!

This is pretty much the same treatment that was done for Half Life: Source, except it's the multiplayer this time. Again, I fail to see the point, as the engine is less utilized here than before, to the point that you feel like you were scammed. If you want a Source engine Half Life deathmatch game, go for Half Life 2: Deathmatch.

Half-Life Deathmatch: Source
I'm sure this game was a ton of fun back in the day but the community is completely dead. You'll most likely find a maximum of 20 or less playing this game and that's if you're lucky. There are also a bunch of mods for this game as well, so if you find it challenging to find a server, see if some of your buddies will play.

Pros:
1. The gameplay is fun but very challenging at first, can take awhile to get use to.
2. Probably some of the best maps I’ve seen for a multiplayer title.
3. There are a crazy amount of mods.


Cons:
1. Community is completely dead.
2. Graphics are very dated. (If you care about that..)

Overall, this game was a bunch of fun back in the day, great maps, tons of mods and a bunch of fun weapons that for the most part, are balanced pretty well. But the community is completely dead and I’d only recommend picking this game up for Garrys Mod, so you'll have extra content.
