Originally posted by LINKMAN:DoD is in my opinion a far better game, although source does boast better graphics and some new cool weapons and seapon settings.I guess the first place to start would be the classes. In the original you had a vast arsenal to choose from to do your killing with. Allies had the Garand, M1 Carbine, Thompson, Grease Gun, BAR, 30. Cal, Springfield, and Bazzoka. On a select few maps you played as the British, and the weapon set was replaced with the Enfield, Scoped Enfield, MKII, Bren, and PIAT. The Axis boasted a very nice weapons list. K98, Scoped k98, Gewher, MP40, MP44, MG34, MG42 and Panzershrk. It is also to be noted that germans had shovels instead of knives, the differance being the shovels kill in one hit as opposed to two. On select maps you play as German paratroopers who also have the beastly FG42, and scoped FG42. On these maps the Germans all have knives insted of shovels.DoD:S threw all of that goodness away and bumped it down to Six. Allies have Garands (with new rifle grenades), Thompsons (with new smoke grenades), BARs (with new three round select fire setting, but eliminated bipod), Springfields, and 30. Cals, and Bazooka (with M1 Carbines with no ammo as secondary). Axis have K98s (with new rifle grenades), Scoped K98s, MP40s (with new smoke grenades), MP44s (with new three round burst select fire setting), MG42s, and Panzershreks (with new C36 Mauser autopistols with as secondary). No other weapons are available. It is also noteable that the rifle classes can now ironsight.The original had a very vibrant custom content community as well as a a greater number of official maps. The community content was also alot larger with more custom maps and mods. Many maps from CS were retooled for DoD such as Dust, Dust2, and Aztec.Lets just say that DoD:S left some things to be desired in the map department.Originally posted by Commander eON:hl1 dod maps are designed with flanking and sneaking around in mind, source maps are pretty much straight forward fragging, no excitement with hide and seek, best part of dod original is the hide and seek part Agreed
