Satisfying and good class-based shooter, the Source version is ♥♥♥♥ because Source engine and lacking features like less weapons compared to this game and no bayonets, take 5 minutes to learn how to play this.

A WWII based Half-Life mod.
It has servers running, but the game is dead.
I recommend DoD Source if you don't know what to buy.

And i thought the game only looked cool. It's basically a World War 2 shooter that doesn't suck and it's fun as hell! I'd recommend it for any person who's looking for a World War shooter or a really, really good game.

Probably one of the worst games i've ever played. I am a certified quick/trick-shoter in Call of Duty: 4 Moder Warfare, Call of Duty: Moder Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Call of Duty: Ghosts and i must say you really cannot trickshot in this.

The is one of my favorite WWII games

Pros:
1: No little kids and the community is very nice.
2: More people than you think play, Because alot of players are non steam. The server browser and steam stats will lie to you.
3: Very fun WWII action with different maps and game modes.
Not repetitive and doesn't get boring.

Cons:
1: player's are very experienced and you will die alot.
2: Game mechanics take time to learn.

Get it on a sale you won't regret it!

Despite it's age, ''Day of Defeat'' is still alive and doing well. A lot of the players are non-Steam, so the charts are only correct for the Steam users. It's a WW2 shooter with realism. It is very hard to get into this game since it has a big learning curve and pretty much everyone is extremely good. Most of the maps are very well made and balanced. There are a few narrow maps which are a slaughterhouse if there are too many players though. I believe that there are things you should know before playing this game, so here are a few words of advice:

- Grenades are very powerful
- Grenades are detonaed quicker if you pull the pin and do not throw it for a while
- Most Grenadier and Sniper shots will be a one shot kill
- In narrow maps it will be very frustrating, so play on larger maps first
- Automatic weapons have recoil which is very hard to handle, so take your time to learn the basics of each weapon
- Constantly check the map to see if you have teammates around, so you know if it's safe to push
- You will die. A LOT.

That's pretty much it. Things like spots, weapons, maps and tricks you will learn along the way of playing it. First few hours will be very frustrating, especially for someone who hasn't played realistic shooters, but you will find yourself scoring more and more kills over time and it will be very satisfying. So, give this game a shot even if at first glance you think that the game is bad or everyone is too good or cheating. It is one of the best WW2/Realism games I've played for sure.

This HL1 mod became popular and made its great rating around 2002. This may not have neat GFX nor have Steam Achievements, saddly. In it's defence though...it contains some uncommon WW2 weapons and UK Made weapons that you don't get in DoDS.

The reason why DoDS doesn't have those extra weapons is maybe to make the gameplay simplier...but at least this game does have those guns.

Considering the dated graphics, still a great game, although it ain´t that realistic, the gameplay is one of the best among the old school FPS.

My Personal All-Time Favorite Game

Hello All :) Yeah ive played this game from Beta days as a Half-Life Mod on the old WON days. This game is like the grandfather of WW2 games , Before COD and all other WW2 games there was Day of Defeat. I have a major love for this game. I also made alot of good friends amongst my battles along the way :) {"We few, we happy few, we band of brothers"}

The game play is a bit older and slower then its predecessor of the day Counter-Strike.The Capture the Flag gameplay and Objective Play inforce strong team work and communication game play. The game has aged a bit of course but the key gameplay is still relevant today.

It may not have had as a big following as did CS did but the community it has , has kept this game alive and well even today. I would highly recommed this game to anyone that loves WW2 games and Loves the old school game play and who also would like to see what we played back in the day,before the flood of WW2 games saw the light of day.

I will say there are not as many servers today as there were back in the day, but there are a few good ones still alive and kicking today.Some with bots and others packed we people {At certain times}. I myself am still very active to this day in this game.

So give it a try and see you on the Battlefield Soldier !!!!
