I can't tell if you have to buy anything to play GoldenEye: Source. Is it free? Are there any good tutorials on getting this up and running?

+1 for bringing this mod to my attention. – jblaske Sep 1 '10 at 22:00

Yes here is the link to the current download version if you already own HL-2

GoldenEye: Source Beta 4 is the first major release since Beta 3.1.4 in March of 2009. Beta 4 brings us many steps closer to a final version of the mod and introduces a tremendous amount of polish in both gameplay, coding, and presentation. Some of the major changes include Rolling Explosions, Bullet Penetration, and Living Daylights, Capture the Key, and Live and Let Die gameplay scenarios. Please see the Beta 4 Change List for a complete list of changes in Beta 4.

Their wiki is a good source for tutorials

If you don't have HL-2 you can get it on either Steam (digital) or for $10 online (hardcopy disk)

Although if you're getting HL2, consider getting the PC version of Orange Box. I thought I saw a copy of it online for $20 just recently, but it's always $30 or less on Steam. – user2974 Sep 2 '10 at 15:27
Orange box is definitely the better detail, especially because of Portal – Elpezmuerto Sep 2 '10 at 16:29

As with all Half-Life 2 mods, you need to own Half Life 2 (or any other source game, eg. CS:S) to play it.
