The Gameplay is really good, the Graphics is good (Yet Simple), The Maps are great. The only thing about Half Life 2: Deathmatch that disappointed me was the fact few play it. And it's hard to find a Server with Players. But when you do find a Server with Players, you'll love it. A fantastic Multiplayer Experience. If only there were more People to play it Expand

    Half-Life 2: Deathmatch brings back the adrenaline pumped feeling from old Deathmatch classics such as Unreal tournament and Quake. WithHalf-Life 2: Deathmatch brings back the adrenaline pumped feeling from old Deathmatch classics such as Unreal tournament and Quake. With improved graphics, physics and a combination of the half-life 2 story this game is filled with rush. Equip your gravity gun and throw a toilet at the enemy, the amount of props will get annoying though since they are in your way. Expand

Even if so, getting this along with the regular HL2, is definitively worth it, I never really knew why they released the two games separately... Expand

    Half Life 2 Deathmatch.
    Gameplay:
    It has good mechanics, but it feels all over the place and not focused at all. It can be fun at times, but it's not really impactful and satisfying. It's just not smooth and the maps are not very good. Also, it can be painfully easy. But, I like that you can have so many weapons with you, making the experience liberal. And, also, I like how you can use the gravity gun to throw objects to other players. However, the game gets boring really quickly, since it's not a very popular game, but it's still played by hundreds of people. (6/10)
    Graphics:
    Fantastic graphics for it's time, and it's physics save the game from it's mediocrity. (9/10)
    Sound: It has good sound effects for it's time. (8/10)
    Replay Value: A poor replay value at best. (4/10)
    Half Life 2: Deathmatch is a very forgettable game, but I play it rarely just to relax myself.
    from other games. It's pretty cheap, but still forgettable. (6.8)

    Poor gameplay mechanics. Slow matches. Inappropriate weapons. Counter-Strike is way better.
