This package contains a version of the Day of Defeat mod, designed to run on Valve Software's "Source" engine, which also powers Half-Life 2. Day of Defeat: Source requires an internet connection for play.
Following the same trail to victory blazed by Counter-Strike, Day of Defeat is a team-oriented first-person shooter that began as a modification for the PC classic Half-Life. Designed exclusively for online multiplayer warfare, Day of Defeat emphasizes small, tactical battles in Europe during World War II.
The game's realistic approach sets it apart from many other first-person shooters. Factors such as weapon recoil, the need to deploy some guns in order to use them effectively, and limited character stamina discourages players from attempting super-human maneuvers common in more arcade-styled shooters, such as the Unreal and Quake games. Instead, virtual soldiers must play more conservatively and work together as a squad. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
