If you are a machinegunner, prepare for Point 'N' Click adventure with lots of dying soldiers.

Still reigns with packed servers. The community hasn't died and never will. Hours of fun based on a WW2 Theme. Not the best graphics but it's well worth the money!

Day of Defeat non-source better knowm as DOD is $5 but is it better than x2 the price DOD source. Here are reasons to buy DOD non-source: You don't own or do own and just don't want the textures for gmod, you want an addictive game, you don't go crazy if graphics arent perfect. Here is why you should buy DOD source: You own and do want the textures for gmod, you want a more serious experience, and you want better graphics. All in all buy either one and you'll be happy but if you only got $5 but DOD non-source

I've played DoD longer than just about anyone, since I ran the largest Counter-Strike community at the time of the first beta. The creative young'guns teens who introduced the game were pretty immature at the time, but they figured out how I can lay down, whereas cliffie and goose never figured that one out in CS :)

It could have ended up a better game than it stands today, but it still is a fun game to play.The development team didn't listen much to us [CoFR]Crusty old Fossil Rockers, and the weapons balance ended up off-kilter. That said, I am a life-long gamer who plays lots of other games, but I return to DoD and the HL1 engine because I have a few friends I've played DoD with for a long time, and I like the net-code for the most part.

I recommend this game, especially to the new gamer who wants to learn how to use teamwork as part of a small squad. Servers now are few and far between, so I thought I'd write a review before its demise. heheh
