"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."

Bloody frusterating as all hell.
Why?
Walking through an ally way with team mates, at least four
Im at the front, theres a machine gun at the exit and I can't get out.
Suddenly, team mates all decide the best course of action is to throw
their grenades out of the exit in an effortless hope to kill the gunner.
They all miss horribly.
Allyway is filled with grenades, I turn around and start screaming
maniacally while the rest of the team says "GO FORWARD DUMBASS"
I sprint out of the allyway at mach speed, get gunned down, the rest
of the team gets blown out of the allyway by the force of a thousand
suns into one big pile of clipping corpses in front of this mortified
machine gunner who just witnissed the first friendly fire induced
holocaust. The gunner siezes this fnck-up and takes advantage of our
major failure. He pushes up into the allyway where all of us, again,
try to have another go at it. This time, im not first. someone else is.
The first guy sprints into the allyway and is gunned down. I decide to
throw a grenade which promptly kills the machine gunner and I run
into the ally. My ♥♥♥-backwards sorry sh!t-for-brain team mates
don't read the bloody kill feed and throw grenades at me, thinking
the machine gunner is still there. I scream "GUYS WHAT THE HELL,
IT'S CLEAR, DON'T THROW GRENADES" but apparently all they heard
was "IT'S CLEAR", because they all came sprinting into the allyway
practically slipping on their own grenades like mario kart banana peels,
and the grenades vaporize our asses clean off.

The game is pretty good. 10/10

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 !!!!

hint: maps with low light conditions make it easier to kill lots of yankees with your fg 42

At first I was sceptical of day of defeat, but then I started the story. It instantly sucks you in with deep characters, varied dialoge options and real consiquences. Your thrust into a rich retro WWII world torn by war, with nothing but your standard arsenal of guns and bullets. The drab uniforms and faces of all the characters really gets you in the mood for defeat. And the voice actors are simpky stunning, xXSniper1337Xx's line "♥♥♥♥ you n00b ♥♥♥♥ you scrub" as he dies to my landmine really pulls at the heart strings, and I stillhear his worlds echoing in my ear to this day. Definatley recomend for any fan of call of duty or battlefield fan.
