Free and standalone Half-Life 2 mod NeoTokyo has finally arrived on Steam after a long old Greenlight campaign.

It was originally released in 2009, and picked up plaudits for its slow-paced, cautious and unforgiving multiplayer gameplay.

"Imagine mixing the cyberpunk anime 'Ghost in the Shell' with the competitive game 'Counter-Strike'," explained one voted-helpful Steam comment, "and what you end up with is NeoTokyo."

I had a brief go and didn't last very long. Once you're down you're out for the remainder of the round, at least you were in the matches I played. Still, it looked nice.
