Do you like World War 2 (as an important historical event, you maniac)? Do you like multiplayer first person shooters? Do you like Valve (and anything approved by Valve)? And most importantly, do you think you would enjoy spending countless hours capturing strategically placed points, camping, blowing stuff up and generally acting like a soldier in an actual war (with nazis involved)? Then this game is for you!
This has got to be one of my favourite WWII games out there due to me being a fan of games and the history of ww2! THE GRAPHICS ARE AMAZING on mac and windows and the gameplay is absolutely fun to play I really do recommend getting this game and maybe even mod it or download some maps for it!
Day of Defeat is a fps very well made and it was ported to source engine year s later, even it isn't that popular these days, the game itself is pretty cool, an endless fight between the Allies and the Axis.If you have a group of friends whose like that style of game,you can host a server and have some fun time together.
Starting out with the drawbacks first: It started out as a community mod for halflife 1. I used to play this a lot back in the day, but now I think it's run its course. World War 2 is over in video games and capture the flag/assault the point is a cliché in multiplayer now. The pros: This game is a lot of fun, has achievements, trading cards, an active multiplayer community that can be a lot more "newb friendly" than a lot of other multiplayer FPS games. Both sides are pretty close to symmetrical except for a few minor differences in guns and starting points. Some maps see the Axis playing defense & the Allies playing offense, or vice versa. While the objectives might be the same, the maps are asymmetrical so that it tends to feel like one team is on defense & the other on offense. Most servers limit the number of deployable machine guns & sniper rifles because they are defenders (read: noob campers) and can make the game play stale if everyone is defending & no one is on offense because of that. However, if you can sneak around and get behind enemy lines, whacking defensive enemies with a shovel or a rifle headbutt is hilarious and most degrading to them. Since everyone respawns at a certain point, there are usually good hiding places that you can wait in the darkness for the next spawn wave to come out, then sneak up behind them & rack up 4 or so kills before they realize you're behind enemy lines & turn around to get you. Conclusion: this game is fun. Get it separate or buy the valve pack, play it, love it.
Day of Defeat: Source is my go to World War II shooter, and while it lacks any sort of singleplayer component, what it actually offers is surprisingly good. You play as either an Allied or Axis soldier and work with others on your team to accomplish specific goals, such as capturing objectives or capturing key locations. There are several classes to choose from, so everyone can hopefully find one they excel with. Visually, the game is beautiful even these days, and the game's vibrant aesthetic style lends itself well to the Source engine that powers it. The models are pretty detailed, yet far from perfect. Moreover, the lighting of the game is actually a factor when picking your shots at other players, because it makes effective use of HDR lighting. So the light and dark colors contrast seamlessly. The weapons are also rendered quite realistically, and sound as such. Overall, this is a nice game that while being older, still has a decent playerbase and is tremendous fun. I particularly recommend this game!
