  • Summary: This multiplayer-focused expansion pack features more maps, more vehicles, and more fighting forces. The Road to Rome focuses exclusively on the key Italian and Sicilian campaigns of WWII. Each map comes with highly detailed environments such as Italian houses, Mediterranean trees, and even the Monte Cassino Monastery. This expansion pack features eight new vehicles including the German BF-110 and British Mosquito twin-engine fighter-bombers as well as new Italian, British, and German tanks and anti-tank guns. Play as several infantry classes, controlling many weapons available to the Axis and Allies, and commanding numerous land vehicles, ships, and aircraft. The original Battlefield 1942 game is required to play The Road to Rome. [Electronic Arts] Expand

  1. This expansion focuses on the little-known Italian and Sicilian campaigns of World War II.
  2. Everybody’s game of the year continues to rock with six new maps, new sides (Italy and France), vehicles, weapons and more.
  3. As any fan of this outstanding multiplayer game will explain, six new maps for Battlefield 1942 is almost like adding six new sequels to the game. [Apr 2003, p.100]
  4. While DICE probably should have included a few more maps, and some editing material so that modders could more easily build on what they've been provided (you can release that software developer's kit any time now, EA!), it's hard to argue with this expansion when everything included in it is so good.
  5. Sure it lacks more content, but what they have in there is well worth their $20 bucks, if for nothing else than for the sheer fun of playing the new and brilliantly designed maps.
  6. While I am enjoying Road to Rome, I've a feeling that it will only live from now until the time Secret Weapons is released.
  7. 60
    We would have liked more maps and a solid fix for the sound problems.

    Good expansion that gave us new transport, maps and weapons.
    But paying for a DLC as much as for a stand alone game that had nothing else
    made many people unhappy. Great addition anyway! Collapse
