Review: Garry’s Mod

Garry’s Mod is a physics sandbox. Unlike regular games there aren’t any predefined aims or goals. We give you the tools and leave you to play. You spawn objects and weld them together to create your own contraptions – whether that’s a car, a rocket, a catapult or something that doesn’t have a name yet – that’s up to you. – Steam

To me, Garry’s Mod is more than a game. You think of anything at all, and you can do it in this game. Because of it’s extraordinary community on the Steam Workshop, you can accomplish just about anything in Garry’s Mod. Play piano, fly the T.A.R.D.I.S, fight zombies, build a rocket to the moon, have a death-match with your friends, and even role-play! The game is actually a modification for the well-known source engine, Half-Life, and therefore you can implement pretty much any other Half-Life modification or source game into Garry’s Mod! For example, you can spawn in the heavy from Team Fortress 2 and move it’s rag-doll about! Also, you can load any maps from any other source game, and various Garry’s Mod game-modes support Counter-Strike maps (e.g. Prop Hunt). As well as sandbox-ing with your friends, and driving around your Lamborghini, you can also play a wide variety of game-modes. A good well-known game-mode is DarkRP, a role-playing mode in which the goal is to collect as much money as you can and just interact with the community. Depending on what server you are on, you can buy money printers, cars, guns, and you can also get a various number of jobs such as a hitman, the mayor and even a gun dealer! But I am getting side-tracked from Garry’s Mod itself- all in all, Garry’s Mod is a action packed, fun filled, highly modifiable, and just a great game for any one. At only £6.99, you cannot go wrong!
