Top Critic Average
Day of Infamy is an excellent multiplayer first person shooter that rewards teamwork and skill. It treads a fine line between realism and entertainment, and gamers looking for a worthwhile alternative to more mainstream shooters that isn’t as time consuming as the ArmA series will feel right at home in New World Interactive‘s latest release.
Day of Infamy is one of those games that will quickly weed out players without the patience or willingness to adapt to its more methodical and strategic approach, creating a small but skilled core fan base that should stick with the game for the long run.
It feels good to bring out my gaming MacBook, my 9 years-old wireless gaming mouse and play the game downloaded straight from Steam. Day of Infamy is an Insurgency with World War II twist. Great shooter, where one shot is in most cases one kill. It keeps player on their toes, keep them engaged in CQC, but also makes them focus on the objective.

The limited HUD and outstanding sound design of Day of Infamy do wonders for immersion as it is just you down there, in the mud, holding onto your gun and scanning the terrain for the enemy.
Day of Infamy is another solid - though visually dated - tactical shooter from New World Interactive that benefits from the shift to a World War 2 setting, and the more distinct weaponry and greater context that comes with it.
Day of Infamy is not a game that will tear down the hegemony of Battlefield or Call of Duty, but like other realistic shooter out there, it provides an alternative FPS experience.
Day of Infamy delivers an excellent product for a narrow field. It is an easy sell for fans of tactical shooters, and anyone interested in WWII era games. However, the game is not friendly towards casual gamers, and players who are unfamiliar with the genre will find Day of Infamy a frustrating and slow experience.
Day of Infamy has taken the shooter genre back to World War II and has really made it an immersive WWII FPS. Days of Infamy requires a combination of tactics, teamwork, map knowledge and skill to really win at this game. If you’re looking for a change from todays fast-paced genres of FPS, then look no further.
Its a nice throwback for those who enjoy a more realistic and slower paced approach to shooters, but it strechtes its content too thin and loses the teamplay element that made Insurgency great.
