A fun mod indeed, Defense Alliance 2 is a mix of assault and Tactical Ops (called Frag Ops for UT2004).
Players join one of 2 teams where one team must complete a series of objectives while the other team must stop them at all costs. It sounds like UT assault mode, but the seperation begins with the fact that you can choose between 6 character classes, from an average trooper to sniper to engineer and more.
There are still a few bugs with this beta, like the fact that there is no HUD on the screen during the spectator mode prior to game start, but currently I have not found any bugs that affect gameplay in any way.
*The mod has bot support of offline matches, and the bots are decently skilled, making for a good challenge when you are playing against them.
Thus, if you are like me and love assault mode on UT, then you'll love this mod. Even if you don't like UT assault mode, you might still want to give Defense Alliance I try.
