One of the best skill-based and highly technical WW2 shooters out there. Bullets kill people if you hit, the automatics need solid mouse control and grenades are very very precise. Also far more classes, weapons and an extra faction compared to the watered-down source version. It's also really fun to mod.

Was on a server and a bunch of guys talking about the Russian Ophan uprising. I told a team mate a platoon of AXIS members were charging. The guys told me to shutup or they would feed me to them.




10/10 would talk again

For a new starter like me, it was helpful that some of the maps were those you already know. Dust, Aztec, and maybe there's more. Yes, maps from Counter Strike. For this reason, I was able to get used to this game easier than I thought. I was surprised to see that there were still many people playing this game. Without them I might have never had the chance to enjoy Day of Defeat. Gear up, It's time for classic gunfire wars.

+) Easy and straightforward game play. Shoot on sight and Capture the flag.
+) Various types of soldiers. Each of them deals with different type of weapons like Team Fortress.

-) Grenades' graphic is poor. They look like some rocks, fragments or some kind, so It's hard to notice it at first. It takes longer time to blow up than you would expect so at first you might be killed by your own.

Think this was one of the first games I ever played on Steam. Way back when Steam was a ♥♥♥♥ DRM system and just some stupid thing you had to log into in order to play Valve games. But this was a good game, and Steam has gotten -much- better since then, so Valve is forgiven for its earlier ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. XD

"Yes" for nostalgia.

In my opinion, everyone should have this in their library, because there are many reasons why, but i'll give you two:
1. It's one of the best and the most realistic WW2 shooters out there.
2.It's a classic title and there are alot of servers active, that means that you can play this every time!
Recommend this to your friends to support this game and to keep it alive like the other classic titles(Team Fortress Classic, Deathmatch Classic, etc).

Hell yes, this game is amazing, its pretty fun with friends, or by your lonesome, as long as you good with an MG or a sniper. I'd say that this games only downfall is the low player count, and the constant hackers in the already low count of players, but other than that its pretty good!

So yeah get this only when its on sale, cause it doesnt have bots so your gonna have to play online with only like 50 - 100 players.
