Action Half Life 2 is designed to simulate the experience of being in an Action movie. Movies like Hard Boiled, Face Off, and Die Hard are the inspiration for AHL. AHL2 is AHL reborn on Source engine.
Action have life 2 is a great mod, you can play as many people such as a FBI agent, awesome russian guy, and many more. And its pretty fast paced, but it has some realism in it and some funny moments. And it does have some servers with about 2-8 players in it, but its still early, but its great. I recommend this mod to everybody.
