    the maps are a bit small, and it seems like its a bit hard to establish who is enemy and who is friendly, but very nice, runs very smoothly.
    everything also seems to hold true to half life at this point as well, anything can be destroyed or interacted with in the deathmatches.

    Combine Vs Rebels , I think pretty easy to establish who is enemy and who is foe. anything humanoid are the rebels, anything that looks like its from Star Wars Stormtroopers are the enemy & vice-versa

    I have been playing TDM since release .. Loving it !

    :lol:

    Yeah Bayle, I get a little confused as well. Now on TDM I just look at which colour I am (red/blue) and shoot the other or at least try too. :lol:

    A few of us have hooked up at some points - I find the limited maps boring, and the lag on even good servers is a drag.

    I jump in now and then for a change, but go back to CS: Source pretty quick.
