About This Game

WWII GI is the invasion of Normandy. The paranoia. The fear. the intensity that was D-Day. You will experience it first hand.

You're in the 101st Airborne, part of the first wave of allied forces to touch down in a no-man's land of twisted shrapnel, dead bodies and heavily armed Nazi-infested machine-gun bunkers. Now you must fight your way through hostile beaches, abandoned country roads with tall, sniper infested hedgerows, the narrow streets of devestated villages and more.

This is D-Day!

  • Close combat gunfights, Sniper strikes, Village shoot-outs, bridge assaults and more!
  • 30 Nazi-infested levels developed by the creators of NAM,
  • Use true-to-war strategies to sucessfully complete genuine WWII Normandy military scenarios,
  • Realistic environments. Gut-wrenching, challenging gameplay.

World War II GI is a first-person shooter set during the events of World War II, developed by TNT Team and published by GT Interactive Software and released in 1999 as the direct sequel to NAM.
World War II GI was later re-released on Steam at the end of 2015, with Retroism and Night Dive Studios as the publishers.
The Steam version of World War GI also has the Platoon Leader Expansion which contains three single player levels. One WWII Pacific and two Vietnam War scenarios with many new effects and features not seen in the original game.

In World War II GI you play as G.I. (Government Issue) Corporal Gerardi of the 101st Airborne Division, sent in to wipe forces of the Wehrmacht and Schutzstaffel (SS) soldiers. The game sets the player in the middle of World War II scenarios like the D-Day beach landings during the Invasion of Normandy, assaults on equipment and supply depots throughout 30 levels divided into four episodes.

During the game you to deal with different types of enemy infantry, mine-fields, air strikes, tanks and many more that will block your path towards the end of every level.
Different from NAM is that when you pick up medic packs, you have to stand still in order use you bandage to receive health, the environment and weapons and their functionalities.

For me the game was very exciting but quite hard. I had a hard time dealing with the first mission on D-Day to get through because there is little to no cover. I noticed that several weapons functioned strange and it looked like it made use of a burst mode. Sometimes I clicked but the gun didn't fire as if a trigger did not respond . I also had find it hard to deal with tanks when not having rocket launchers but only C4 charges which makes the game quite challenging.
Saving multiple times while playing World War II GI is a good thing to do but don't do this when you are being shot or wandering through large open areas otherwise your saved progress can be a total disaster by limitless dying when the save game is being loaded.

I really enjoyed this game because of the complex level designs and variation of locations and scenarios like assault or defense. If you have played the Doom series, Duke Nukem 3D, Blood (One Unit Whole), Shadow Warrior, Redneck Rampage you will probably like this game because of the Build game engine.
I highly recommend this game to people who like challenging retro pixelated first-person shooters with great gameplay and level design, certainly when the game is on sale!

If you're willing to put 5 minutes of your time into sorting out the controls (just chose Configuration when you start the game) then this game is a typical 90s shooter, and a pretty good one, though maybe that's just the nostalgia talking.

Be sure to start the game through the SECOND option (DosBox Daum) as this makes it widescreen and makes all the controls work properly.

To reiterate, a pretty good WW2 FPS if you can get past its age and aren't immediately turned off by DOS.

WAR IS HELL

(War is less hellish if you use eduke32 instead of the supplied dosdox configuration, guide available on steam. Also works with NAM on steam. Trust me, it really cuts down on the amount of time it takes you to capture the beach on D-day...)

I played this game in eduke so my playtime on steam is low.

I want to love this game but I just cant. My problems with it are the inaccuracy of the weapons, the amount of damage you take, and the placement of enemies. The weapons are more inaccurate then if you based E.T. for the Atari on the movie. The only semi-accurate weapon is the mp40 and even then the mp40 isn't even that accurate. Now on to the damage you take. In my experience no matter what difficulty setting you are on you still take half of your healthbar per bullet. This makes the first level near impossible. Part of this is because of the ammo placement. By the time you lose all of your ammo you are basically forced to use god mode because of how quickly you die. Some but not all enemies are placed in the most douchy places you can think of. Usually any enemy that is not an mp40 soldiers is around the corner of a wall ready to shoot you down. The game does look nice though for a DOS game.

So should you play this game?

If you really want to play this wait until its on sale, otherwise don't bother.

Not as terrible level design as NAM, but still mediocre game. 90% of enemies being hitscan soldiers with MP40s is just terrible. Even on easiest difficulty they will chew through you like nothing.
Use eDuke32 if you really want to play this.

This is an FPS which has some of the mouse functioning ive ever had the displesure of dealing with. in EVERY SHOOTER EVER when you click the left mouse button you shoot something but in here it only shoots when it feel's like it. This game is just Horrid. That D DAY level ayy. For a first level it borders on PAINFULL and near Impossable which just kils agame like this. Even if it was halfway decent this game came out when Half life and quake were at there PEAK. this game is awfull Dont play it.

I can't change the controls and the arrow keys are the only way of moving, unless you can use them which I prefer WASD + mouse, it'll be hard. The lowest skill level is still hard. I'm hoping to get a refund.

EDIT: I got a refund, so I'm happy now :)

Oh yes! Another FPS classic. This one is obscure just like the game Nam that also on steam. Made by the same Developers. Uses the Build 3d engine.
I have played this game for hours and hours before this steam release.

The game has many maps, and two campaigns to finish. The weapons are a great selection of WW2 weapons and items. There are objectives in some maps so its not just running around shooting enemies. Levels are nicely made and very diverse from open fields, towns, trenches, etc. You also have friendly AI that can follow you and you can give out special orders, medics can heal you.

I highly recommend this game. Game can be really challenging and put people off, but I have created a guide that will help new players with gameplay tips and help with the low resolution dosbox has by adding a sourceport. Also it has a link to an online manual
