Garry's Mod is a sandbox game, that was released back in 2006 by the Valve Software studio. The game uses Source engine, which helps people in experimenting with gaming physics and various objects. There is no certain plot in this game. You can spend some time in this game alone or with your friends. Developers provided their players with an online multiplayer mode. You can download Garry's Mod on PC and Mac OS.
Graphics and Sound 7/10
Graphics in Garry's Mod look old, comparing to modern games, but it is still nice to play. The character's faces look well detailed. All the objects have nice shaders and shadows. Developers did their best and created fascinating 3D objects. The problem is that they do not look realistic, but for this game, it is not really necessary. All the sounds are not bad. You will hear realistic footsteps and breaking sounds. However, the gunshots sound is not realistic. We should also mention amazing physics. Players can build constructions here, create various buildings, etc. You can also select a ragdoll and set its position in the air, so it can show you a certain emotion.
Controls are the same as most other first-person games. You should tap the WASD buttons to walk. It should be mentioned that there are many actions in this game. You can open various tabs, and select multiple objects. To do that, you have to tap the certain button on the keyboard. But while playing you will see a short tutorial, so it should not be hard for you to manage the controls. After all, you can always change bindings in the game settings.
Garry's Mod is full of different interesting modes. The most popular are: Sandbox (this is the usual mode where players can show their creativity), DarkRP (here players imitate various real life situations), Cinema (players watch various videos from different video hostings), Trouble in Terrorist Town (murderer should kill all the citizens, and the detective has to find the criminal before he kills everyone), and many others. Most of the modes are for the online game. There are many full servers, and it will be easy to find the needed one.
It is worth mentioning that the gaming community still works on this game, and releases many interesting add-ons, modes, and features, so the game could become more exciting to play. You can download many add-ons from the official Steam workshop.
Lasting Appeal 7/10
You will surely play this game for a long time if you are a fan of sandboxes, or just want to kill some time in the evening. However, if you do not have friends who own Garry's Mod, the game may be boring for you after a couple of hours.
We recommend you to play Garry's Mod. In this game, you can have much fun, especially if you play on any online server. People can show their creativity in many modes or just kill some time by watching videos in the Cinema mode.
