Dino D-Day: Great mod or greatest mod?



7:40 PM on 11.13.2009

It finally happened. Someone made a Half-Life 2 mod about Nazis, dinosaurs, and Nazi dinosaurs. Sure, the main reason why I want to even give it a try is incredibly shallow, but even still, it's got dinosaurs who moonlight as Nazis. How can you say no to that?

If you'd rather jump straight into downloading the mod, head on over to ModDB; there's also a trailer located there too. Here's the brilliant story description:

You’ll play as Sgt. Jack Hardgrave, a renowned paleontologist who thought he put his career on hold to go to war…then Hitler resurrected dinosaurs and unleashed them on the Allies in 1942. When the Fuhrer’s monster army saw battle for the first time in North Africa Hardgrave was on the front lines – nearly getting eaten alive by beasts he spent his life studying.

We don't normally delve into the modding community too much here, but because Digital Ranch Interactive is releasing Dino D-Day as a full commercial game on Steam in 2010, and this mod is merely a way to hype up the final product and get feedback, I figured it deserved to be highlighted.
