----- PLEASE READ BEFORE BUYING THIS! -----
This game is no longer functioning and should not be bought. A few years ago I would've recommended this game to everybody, but due to the Steampipe update back in 2013 this game was entirely ruined. Before I go on, let me define the word "ruined" as it's used in this context. By "ruined" I mean that this game is so properly glitched that you cannot even change your player model anymore! Yeah, that should give you an idea of how much Valve cares for their games.
I blame Valve for this, but mostly an incompetent and lazy person whose name starts with an A and ends with a D, that was supposed to fix this using the input from the community on GitHub.
So yeah, rather buy the normal HL because not only do you get the singleplayer portion of the game with the multiplayer, the online play is still functioning like it should and there is at least a player base. Oh, and if you are planning to buy Half-Life Source which is the other half of this, then don't. It might not be equally broken, but broken enough to make you mad.
Or just get Black Mesa, then you will at least get something that is prettier on the eyes and functioning like it should.
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,
