Default New Steam Downloads for HL2 Owners

i have a few new downloads in my "My Games" section in Steam. the games are

Age of Chivalry
D.I.P.R.I.P Warm-Up
Insurgency
Synergy
Zombie Panic! Source

so anyone play any of these? Insurgency and Age of Chivalry look pretty cool from what ive seen online.

Insurgency is a ww2 mod for HL2, havent played it yet but apparently its aimed at clans and team v team.

No it's modern combat. Personally i thought it had alot of promise back on its first release, but in its current form I just cant get into it.

I played some Insurgency yesterday. It wasn't bad. The map that I played was much better than the one I played earlier this year. They still have too many invisible walls though.

I haven't tried Age of Chivalry yet but I played it last year I think and it was ok. Again, nothing ground breaking. The gameplay felt sort of random and pointless, but if its been polished its probably good now. Its a nice change of pace from standard FPS deathmatch.

Anyways, Zombie Panic Source is quite a blast, I highly recommend it. They recently upgraded to Orange Box engine too.

what is so difficult to understand about that? from my experience, its A LOT better.

EDIT: Sorry, i meant the counter strike: source zombie mod, based on the actuall CSS game, not the free mod that we all got in steam.
