While I haven't played this game much, it's amazing. We all love quake right? Well DMC could also be called Half-Life:Quake edition.

This game is really fun, with quake-like weapons, with an arena shooter theme. Okay for standalone, but I recomend with a bundle.

PS. This game is NOT DEAD. If you by this game, type into the console - connect 87.117.231.115:27015
This will take you to an epic server with usually lots of players. If anyone isn't on, it's the only server with bots! But otherwise, I would recomend to get with friends.

All in all, it's a fun fast-paced game you shouldn't miss!
9/10 :D

Just get this game. It's a fun, fast-paced multiplayer game that encompasses the best things of 90's shooters. The only problem is that there are no dedicated single-player modes and the community is nearly extinct, but that can be fixed with more people coming in and playing this underrated classic.

Many years ago, the great wizard called Valve stole the engine of the dragon called Quake. With the help of his magic and the engine he created Half Life. But the dragon searched for the wizard and demanded the engine back. The wizard panicked and accidentally turned into a woman. The dragon fell in love and had sex with the now female wizard. Valve got pregnant and gave birth to this unholy demon child called Half Life Deathmatch.

It's okay for a dollar, I guess... There's really no point in playing this now besides nostalgia or if you have a potato. But there are much better things to play on a potato. However, it is still fun.

Deathmatch Classic Is A Great FPS
Its Unlike games like CS And TF And COD
DMC is a brutal non stop slaughter house that
never stops and is a fraction of quake 3 arena's price
You Should Definantly Buy this

Valve's tribute to Quake. It's somewhat similar in QuakeWorld.
I don't think anybody plays though... which is why I wouldn't recommend this.

I bought Valve Complete Pack and I wanted to play some other games that CS:GO. First thing that I saw was this. It was 32 MB so I thought, well It will download for about 6 secs soooo, yeah, let's give it a try. I joined a server which had 1 guy playing on it, cuz all the others were empty. There were two teams, Satan and Jesus. I choose Jesus cuz he's my man, and I went around and killed satan bots with a shotgun like a boss. Then After a while, the other player started Team Killing and I got disconnected for no reason at all. :P Anyways, very fun and crazy. Get it as a apart of the Valve Pack.

This is like the remastered version of Quake 1 Multiplayer mod or QuakeWorld. The model textures and geometry polygon count have been increased for its smoothness. Plus most servers have Metamod 3rd party support and bots to make DMC servers live longer than Quake 1 servers. If you own a dedicated server for CS 1.6 and like to try host DMC, go ahead.

Don't bother using HPB_Bots as they are too sluggish and incompetant, but try RCBot v1.442-beta out. However RCBot got some complicated configurations, but it's useful for your bot to work various ways.

I wouldn't reccomend to buy it by itself, try it out from the Valve Complete Pack.
More people seem to be playing nowadays...
Which is great!

There are two different types of people who own this game:

1. "I used to play this game all the time back in the day!"

2. "I got it in the Valve Complete Collection."

I really miss this game. I wish there were some people that still played this. However the grapple mod really killed this game.

I recommend it but it is dead so I highly recommend for a LAN party or a group of friends online.

This game is a run and gun spray and pray first person shooter with no strategy what so ever! So who could like it? Well anyone with an itchy trigger finger! This is on of the best fast pace fps with no stop destruction! The only time I remember no fighting was for 2 seconds and then utter (moo) chaos was unleashed! It is a great game.

8.5/10

P.S. It is more fast paced than COD Advanced Warfare if you can belive it!

Reminds me of Quake alot. The game is fast paced and full of action. A must buy in my opinion, especially if it is on sale any computer can run this. Looking at the games population, it completly depends on the time you are on. You will find at least 1 game with 5-10 people though so that shouldn't be an issue (and sometimes the population is like zero ;/). Overall a great example that graphics dont matter.

Deathmatch classic is as the name suggest a classic both in game style and graphics. In the modern pc era filled with squeakers and russians. This game i feel gives a more serious community which is more forgiving and alot more friendly. Deathmatch classic was made with the quake engine which means it can run on any potato pc something i can relate to that with my potato pc. I think Deathmatch classic is a fun and enjoyable fps which changed alot of meta for the fps to follow.

I highly recommend this game because i feel that the community deserves some more respect because they are a part of making this game what it is.

If you're tired of squeakers and russians welcome... To Deathmatch classic.

10/10 would play again ^-^

Its Half-Life meets Quake, what is more to like?

The only issue I have is the community is mostly dead, it's extremely fun when you find a server with players on it, though.

The dated graphics may bother some, but it doesn't detract the experience for me.

Overall Score: 8/10, Very Good.
