This here is my comprehensive list of CD-ROMs bundled with many PC Gaming Magazines containing maps & modifications for Half-Life 1 released between early-1999 to the mid-2000s, including some even including either the older Team Fortress Classic & Deathmatch Classic mod releases, a standalone release of Opposing Force’s CTF multiplayer mode, one of the Counter-Strike or Day of Defeat betas, or the mod releases of Counter-Strike retail versions 1.0, 1.1, 1.3, 1.4 or 1.5.

This here is a follow up on my list of unofficial add-on CD-ROMs released for Half-Life 1, this time focusing on CD-ROMs bundled with PC Gaming Magazines.

Notice, Once Again, I can’t provide download links to these add-on CD-ROMs for obvious copyright reasons, because I don’t want to violate the Steam Community guidelines on download links to other sites. Though fortunately, you can find all of these on Internet Archive, so these may not be hard to find after all, you just got to have the right software to extract the files.
