Upon the release of Half-Life 2 players were greatly disappointed in one thing, and that’s the lack of multiplayer. Granted, single-player campaign of Half-Life 2 was impressive, but weapons that have been demonstrated in it made players curious. They questioned if the experience was complete because the first Half-Life included multiplayer mode from the beginning. Valve took the criticism and published Half-Life 2: Deathmatch – multiplayer only addition, based on the main game, which was a separate product, distributed on Steam. The game includes two major modes, which are Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch. Both modes have similar rules. Players must kill as many other players as possible, to gain points. Player or team with the most points win, and points are retracted for self-killing and team killing. Players can expect fast-paced matches with instant respawns.

Half-Life 2: Deathmatch reviews and comments

What could be better than knocking yourself with Friends and Unknowns in the Hopous LF-LIFE ² universe and pitching each other or in a Team? Not much, which is why this Game is online or LAN just rocking! \ m/

I have slayed 2 Players with a Clo xD But times im serious! This is really a Cool Fun Shooter that you can start again and again if you have nothing else to do and would like the Half Life Games. :)

CI you are bored on HL2 and you do not want to spend more than €5 for a multi FPS. Well, this game is for you. There's not much to say it's just a FPS deatmatch from or the goal is to smash his opponent either, astronauts for be or as a team. This game is still very good and I invite you to try it.

This game is a "must-have" for all fans of the franchise who liked the Coop (synergy) there is nothing more fun than to fuck on the face a blow of gravity gun (barrel, wardrobe, radiator, all answering the call of gravity) or the mythical "crowbar" but prEN EZ it with half-life episode one: it's in the same package!

I love the combination of having to aim and try to give headshots a fast movement speed D:, the only drawback are the few servers that there are but good at night fill some servers are the best known, the ping is another Little problem but no matter this game is great. AHH also I forgot there are coop servers that can keep you connected for long hours xD

Malgrés the servers often empty. This half life 2 bonus offers us fun and nothing more, half life 2 Deathmatch does not pretend to be nothing more, than a deathmatch version of a game that has experienced a great success. Needless to pay anything to get bonuses or crap like, when you die, needless to wait moults and moults seconds before respawn. Fast, dynamic, I advise you to play with your friends. And then its inexpensive price will not be able to make you... If?

Let'S Go to the point: like Half Life: Source Deathmatch should have come along with Half Life Source, this game should have come along with Half Life 2 and not be a game apart... It has No achievements (fortunately) and most importantly, it has no one to play it. Practically The online is dead, there are many servers running, which surprises me. But There are barely 30 people around the world playing it and countries in Europe, which you can imagine the ping you will have... Todabia I remember when I played it with my friends a few years ago. Do Not Buy it, not worth it, I came with the Bundle of Half Life and I proud have it in my library, but I do not recommend your purchase if you want to play it.
