Product Description

Product Description

Play as a sniper, gunner, rifleman or commander in the blood-soaked European theater of WWII. Note: this online game requires an Internet connection.

From the Manufacturer

Day of Defeat (a.k.a. DoD) is the latest online action experience from Valve, makers of Half-Life and Counter-Strike . Stationed in the heart of WWII's European Theater of Operations, players join the ranks of an elite military squad entrenched in battle.

Each team has several "player classes," that give each squad member a unique role. These include scout, infantry, sergeant, machine gunner, and more, each with a unique arsenal of historical weaponry at their disposal.

Day of Defeat includes an expansive collection of missions based on key historical battles. And a near infinite number of additional missions, created by the online development community, are available for download.

As war rages, squads must battle as a unit to achieve victory.

By The Blue Raja VINE VOICE on September 13, 2003
First off, let me begin with a little history. I downloaded the first beta version of Day of Defeat ages ago. It was a Half-Life mod dream come true. It was a truly exciting and addicting first-person shooter for WWII, and nice alternative to Counter-Strike. The voice communication addition was an incredible bonus. The Ally rifle "PING" when the clip empties and pops out was a sheer thrill. Great stuff. Then came Medal of Honor. After experiencing a more realistic feel for walking/running it was difficult to turn back, and so I left Day of Defeat behind. But with Medal of Honor, you couldn't prone (lay down)! Bad mistake, particularly for snipers. All in all, better graphic improvement and a lot of fun. Then came Battlefield 1942. I was in heaven. Every possible scenario in combat from boats to planes, tanks and jeeps, etc. The overall graphics of MOA were better, but the variety and fun was increased with Battlefield. After playing Battlefield 1942 for almost a year... now I come BACK to Day of Defeat.
Why? The other games certainly had their advantages and improvements in versatility and graphics/maps... but something about the 'rawness' and realism of Day of Defeat puts me in what feels like more real combat. The sounds I think are the best compared to the other games, and the KILL factor is much more realistic (no taking several rifle or machine gun hits and watching your health bar go down bit by bit) - when you get shot, you're DOWN! No spewing blood, no flailing arms or shouting, your body just goes limp and you collapse. The helmet 'ping' on the head shots are nice too.

sure, youve got your battlefields and your medal of honors, but the most gripping world war 2 multiplayer has to come in the form of Day of Defeat, a mod for the original Half-Life. you can play either as allied (american/british) or axis (german). each side has different classes, like sniper/seargent or watever, and is soley sure, in battlefield you can drive/fly things on massive terrain. sure, all of the other ww2 games have better graphics. but day of defeat has simply the most amazingly designed maps to date. most maps are historically based on real world areas, and involve either capturing various locations, stealing documents, or blowing up tanks/bridges. also, it features probably the best weapon modelling around, putting even the most recent games to shame. it is in this simplicity that lies the fun of DoD. take a map like dod_glider. this map is a huge, sprawling city, filled with pitch black sewers, towers, rivers, bridges and stores. the main objective is for the allies to destroy a bridge, capture a bunker and radio tower as well as a few other locations. this city has tall buildings, perfect for snipers too. the only way you can complete these objectives is to work as a team. there are other maps like charlie (d-day) anzio (italian town) donner, jagd, and probably the funnest one, forest, complete with trenches and outposts. yes, the graphics were the best ever 5 years ago, but you can easily see past that when you play this game. its the greatest fun you'll ever have. apart from counterstrike :)

Why are so many people dizzing this game (mod)? Let me start by saying that I am a big fan of BF 1942 and no other game comes close to BF42 except Medal of Honor. This is a mod of Half Life not an actual game, so STOP comparing it vs. BF42. If you own half life, you don't need to buy it just download it for free(you may need to patch your Half Life game before installing it!!) If you do not know how to patch a game or do not own Half Life- Don't be afraid to purchase this game. These are the pros and cons:
1-Awesome Teamplay - you won't win unless you work together as a team. No lone wolves!!!
2-Real time communication with teammates(just plug the mic)
3-Realistic WWII weapons
4-Weapons behave realistically- Machine guns have recoiled effect making harder to shoot your enemies unless squatting or going prone. Rifles are more steady and accurate, etc...
5-Maps are small- tight and tense fights, nowhere to hide making it almost impossible for campers and snipers to stay at a location shooting people for long periods of time. Everybody has to fight! >>>Action, lots of it>>
1-No Classes - You only have a choice of weapons, that's it! No medics, no engineers, no covert ops, etc...
2-No single player missions in order to practice and get familiar with the maps.
3-No freedom of movement- Can't drive vehicles, tanks, use mounted guns, fly planes.
4-Graphics are good but the half life engine is showing its age.
5-Maps tend to favor one side making it very difficult for the other team to win.
Well there you have it, the choice it's yours!!! But if you ask me, I say yes go ahead ang give it try. If you are looking for an action packed game you won't be dissapointed.

Day of Defeat is an online World War 2 game(based on the Half-life engine) set in the year 1944. It is solely European Theater(US/Britain vs. Germany).
When you pick your team you also get to pick different classes. For example German Grenadiers use Kar98 rifles & grenades and Allied Sergeants use Thompson submachine guns and m1a1 greasegun.
The action in DoD is VERY intense. A large part is due to the sound of the game. Day of Defeat has the BEST sound over any world war 2 game. You will actually feel like your in a War and not some deathmatch game. Just play the map dod_charlie and you will see what Im talking about.
The graphics are great if your on a high powered gaming rig(like me). Very smooth(60+fps).
Also this is one of the best team games out there, where you will actually have to rely on teamates to win the match, not just yourself. Also teamplay is boosted by the support of in-game voice communication(microphone needed), something more online shooters should have these days.
Overall Great WW2 game. You cant call yourself a WW2 first person shooter fan without this game.
