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

We set out in the morning, warily checking windows, corners, anywhere the Germans could spring a trap or an ambush.

Johannson was in the lead, Garand at the ready and bayonet fixed improperly. Rook was shadowing him, double checking each spot that Johannson had checked before. I was in the middle with Peters and his trusty sniper rifle, carrying the M2 Browning. And Stewart was in the rear, covering our backs with his Thompson at the ready.

The others had been glancing uncertainly at the MG I held in my hands, but I quickly dismissed the growing fear as they were undoubtly only nervous about a rookie with such a powerful weapon.

It was quiet. Too quiet.

The bridge we had set out to capture was undefended, and we quickly set up a defensive position in case a German patrol stumbled upon us.

The sound started as a low rumble. We looked around, at each other, confused as to why the ground was shaking. It got louder, and we could soon hear the sound of people yelling. We readied our weapons, getting ready for the enemy to throw a grenade or fire a Panzerschreck.

But nothing could prepare us for what happened next.

A giant tide of German soldiers, all carrying trench shovels and primed Steilhandgranates in their hands, came around the corner, rushing at us screaming at the top of their lungs.

We opened fire, but there were too many and we were quickly overrun.

Stewart was the first to go, having gotten overzealous with his Thompson. He had managed to push the wave of Germans back, when they surrounded him and began pummeling him to death with their shovels.

One of them, holding a grenade, charged Rook and Johannson from behind. They never saw it coming.

By now, it was only me and Peters, him firing his sniper rifle with reckless abandon. Running out of ammo, Peters quickly pulled out his M1911 and managed to squeeze off a few shots, but it wasn't long before he too was buried under the mass of grey and black.

I was cornered, MG propped up against an overturned cart while I mowed down soldier after soldier, spent casings flying everywhere. From out of nowhere, a fist collided with my face and I blacked out.

Waking up, I found I was tied down to a chair in a pitch black room. The only thing visible was a glowing box directly in front of me with words written on it. Squinting my eyes, I barely made out the small, black letters.

The box read:

Kicked from server. Reason: lol dont use MG skrub

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.

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.

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.

Personal rating: "Good" = 3/5

PROS:
+ fun gameplay
+ active community
+ nice choice of weapons
+ many mods

CONS:
- clunky graphics
- the community has a lot of rude and mean players

Comment:
Unlike many other old Valve multiplayer games this game has enough active players to have plenty of servers to join. The gameplay is fun, gun damage accurate and maps are cool. I got this game for free with Counter Strike 1.6 so that is always a plus. This game is set in the World War 2 setting and so the maps, teams and guns match this theme. Not really special but for sure cool multiplayer with a variety of WW2 weapons. Though I haven't played that much this seems like a cool old-school type of multiplayer game and I'd recommend it.
