Yes ill think it will be nice, somewhere between COD and BIA/H&D in terms of realism its a total conversion mod, but i should wait because i dunno if its worth to spend $21 or $14? on it
i hoped it was free but those steam packages is abit confusing
although i have the silver edition its not free http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Hmmm i have played DoD in the early Beta Stages up to the point when it became DoD1.0 Gold for Halflife...At that point it was so different from the last beta, and it sucked so hard that i stopped playing.

As far as i know, DoD for HL2 is a direct conversion of the old HL1 DoD1.0
DoD Beta 3.5 was absolutely awesome, with huge explosions, thundering sounds and good gameplay - it had still US vs Germany only and when DoD1.0 came out everything had changed into something not-DoD.

I think - if it is still a free mod - it is worth to get it. Back in the days it could easily compete with games like Call Of Duty and Brothers In Arms in terms of "feeling"..
If you have to pay to get it, then i would leave it.

Just my 2 eurocent http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

@Sunburst: Im sure i read that half-life 2 silver owners will get it free.

i went for the cheapo bronze pack and i definately have to pay for it. seems a bit steep for a multiplayer mod, but then im a sucker

Yeah CS was interesting for a while but i was getting my nerves shredded by ritalin soaked hyperactive 13 year olds with instant headshots.

and people who play so much they could play with the monitor turned off and still run around Office and maim everyone

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Retail version (store bought) version of HL2 does NOT include DoD:S
If you bought a copy of HL2 in a store, you do not automatically get DoD:S once it is released. This goes for all versions, including the collectors edition.

DoD:S is only available for free on release to those who bought the Silver or Gold packages via Steam.

What! This is an outrage! I paid $XXX for HL2! I demand DoD:S!
The store versions of HL2 were duplicated, packaged and distributed by Vivendi who had the publication rights for HL2 and CS:S only. These rights did non include DoD:S which is why it is not availble with the retail version.

guess what version i bought? yep i bought the collectors edition, from amazon "retail"
thats the mostest, bestest package, iirec was sold to have DOD when it was launched, and until recently steam said i had the gold package http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Glad I upgraded my ATI freebie to the gold, sucks that you others got ripped off by Vivendi.

Mind you that is reminiscent of the BoB:WoV/GMX rip off too, the US copy came with B17 for MS FS. We didn't in Europe http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif.

i was/still am an admin on the "funny farm" server. we hosted dod while it was in beta (and still good), then dropped it when it went retail and was lame. IF the new version was to resemble the old dod (beta 1.1 - 2.5) then it would be worth it.

also, if they remake the "firearms" mod for hl2 that's a good 1 to play.

DOD was fun but then BF1942 (and then on to Forgotten Hope, PoE, BG42). For WW2 action BF1942-FH mod put DOD in the shade.

As an owner of the BF2 beta, the next time I'll carry a Garand or MG42 will be in Forgotten Hope2 which will be free for me.
