D-day is a World War 2 total conversion mod for Red Alert 2, featuring thirteen different countries equipped with over a thousand new units spread across multiple game modes.
D-Day "See You On The Beach" ****: An Invasion Ten Years In The Waiting
D-Day is a project that has been in the works longer than some players have been playing Yuri's Revenge. Since the time that D-Day began to take shape back in 2002, The West has completed it's "War on terror", an African American was elected as POTUS, the Arab World rose up in revolt and Social media sites took over our lives. Indeed the D-Day mod has been in the works for a long time, but finally through the hard-work of it's current developer, MigEater, D-Day has seen it's first public beta release.
D-Day offers the player the opportunity to play as one of the major power blocs from the Second World War, with the current release boasting no less than six different factions for the player to choose from. Gameplay is split up into different era's where units from different stages of the war are available depending on the year group chosen.
The first thing the player will notice when they enter a game, is the fantastic work that MigEater and others have put into the visuals. The cartoonish look of the Yuri's Revenge engine has been transformed into a gritty, dark, but ultimately beautiful representation of the Second World War. Every unit, building and infantryman has been carefully rendered and the results are simply stunning. Technically, the mod runs very smoothly, with only a few bugs or glitches in regards to the AI and path-finding.
D-Day is however, very much a beta still, with place holders standing in for many buildings, support weapons still disabled and naval units are not yet available. This is more evident in some factions (the French especially, who's buildings are all placeholders) and some players may wish to avoid playing with these factions so not to wreck the immersion. Maps are also few at this stage and gameplay is limited to skirmish, but the factions wide diversity and dynamic AI will ensure things don't become stale. Well worth the download.
Comparable the Sudden Strike or the Blitzkrieg franchise but with base building. Come to think of it, this might be the next Blitzkrieg once the countries are done and the custom missions or campaigns start rolling out.
best mod for red alert 2 ever :D
So ******* awesum! Keep it up, man! Regards.
The graphics in this game blows my mind in a good way. The gameplay and the entire concept and theme isn't too shabby either. I'll look deeper into it when it is released for good.
great recreatio mod for de WW2 :D
The units are well detailed and the new terrain is much more appeasing than the cartoonish terrains of RA2. With recent updates, DDay along with Mental Omega is on a warpath to glory.
pretty big mod. instant thumbs up
This mod embodies what itd be like if Red Alert 2 and Axis & Allies had a child
It keeps that C&C gameplay but with the setting, units, factions and map styles of a well rounded WW2 RTS. Mind you I am writing this after playing the 3.7b version of the mod.
There is a very nice variety of units to play with and all (so far) seem to be voiced
