"Famous for reason, many soldiers have died on the battlefields of Day of Defeat. Still strong. Might be hard to get into these days. Also on source."

It's good alongside with to be honest. A SHOCKINGLY good community for a Valve game. Most of Valve's games like CS:GO and TF2 are cancer but this is good. But this community gets sorta triggered if you use the MG-42 Schutze haha

pros -

mg-42 schutze

good community

alot of weapons

alot of maps and community maps

hitboxs aren't trash

awesome sounds

cheaper then cod and battlefield

cons -

nothing unless your talking about having no vehicles but people most of the maps in this game are tight or closed cities. You would barely have anywhere to drive.

42/10 for the MG-42 and the Source version prob gets a 34/10 for the MG-34:

best game with best machine guns m8

Oh god where do I start with this game, the amount of hours I have put into this game with my previous accounts, probably over 2000+, it was the best game I had ever played at the time when I had a PC which had to turn lower video quality on and play it at 640x480. Hours of endless fun owning the leaderboards with the unbelievably OP FG42 Sniper. The community is also very experienced some of which date back to when it was released in 2003, and most of which are adult and don't blast their mics saying they just hit a noscope. Unlike modern mainstream FPS games it's usually a 1-2 shot kill with a decent rifle at reasonable ranges, (e.g M1 Garand) and 2-4 rounds with the likes of a Thompson or MP40 at short-medium range. Players coming now from modern FPS titles perhaps found this in a sale will have a steep learning curve with gunplay and the low time to kill by todays traditions. The satisfaction of mounting an MG42 with a bipod at the back of an alleyway gunning down dozens of men rushing through ending upwith a massacre and pile of 15 dead bodies from a single MG ammo box, sensational. Or being that one guy who has the OP position in the building that overlooks the central area of the map picking off every last troop that runs across the battlefield with a sniper rifle the whole round. This game is and always will be one of the closest games to my heart and I still play it almost everyday today. I highly suggest you to pick this up in a sale sometime or purchase it for the full price if you're willing to, you won't regret it.

I wish more people knew about this amazing game. This game, and *Counter Strike* deserve more. I wish steam would advertise there games on there home screen for a few days so it can get peoples atention. I would like to see the servers filled. This is one of the best games ive played. Half-Life engine rules. You wont regret buying this game...... 10 out of 10

The rifle, the flag, and "The War."

Day of Defeat is the World-War 2 GoldSrc game. Realistic, gritty, and even authentic, its sincerely one thing... badass.

Personally, I love it, I recommend it, and - I play it. Its not nesscarily the most popular game, but for those in Day of Defeat: Source, and GoldSrc old-timers, its a name we all remember, and don't want to forget.

But, that's just my opinion,
Devin
