Deathmatch Classic is basically when Half-Life and Quake had a baby. That baby then grabbed a crowbar and started beating random scientists and Black Mesa workers half to death. This game is really a lot like Quake 3 in certain aspec... Wait... Quake 3... 3... HALFLFIE3CNFIRMS210555555555

The game is so simple and basic, but I loved every second of it. A couple powerups, a couple weapons, a couple character skins, a couple of hours of fun to be had. Seriously, buy the Counter Strike 1 Anthology when it's on sale. Worth every cent anyways.

Personalize your character, it can be a Hazmat with an orange Hazard Suit just like Gordon Freeman, but i tell you that you're not the only one like him, anyway, i recommend this game if you want to enjoy a fast-paced Half-Life multiplayer game, good luck.

This game may look to be dead but has 1 server that has a decent amount of people everyday. the gameplay is almost exacally like quake, except for the lack of bunny hopping. This game is worth the 1 TF2 key I spent on it. It is fun and simple to grasp, but (exacally like Quake) is hard to master. i give this game a 10/11. because reasons...

Personal rating: 6/10

PROS:
+ fun gameplay
+ lots of mods

CONS:
- not that many active players
- clunky graphics

Comment:
Same case as with other old Valve multiplayer games, I've missed the golden days of this game when there were many players around. Today the community of active players is small and there are not a lot of games to join (I just found 1 server with 13 players). I got this game with Counter Strike 1.6 and decided to give it a go. It's a classic Quake-type shooter and lots of fun. Gameplay is great but lack of people to actually play with pulls down the score somewhat.
