ATF_IsamuSep 29, 2003BF42 has GREAT multi-player potential. While all the same levels are available for both solo & multi games, you loose a lot when going up against bots. They have team deathmatches, CTF, and other modes but the 'Conquest' gameplay mode stands out as by far the most popular. This also puts more focus on teamwork, which is where this game excels. A coordinated 8-man team can easily defeat force twice it's since if you are working together. Vehicles play an important role in battle and combining ground, air, and sea elements with your infantry will turn tables very quickly. Every vehicle has it's strengths and weaknesses. A Battleship can take out many destroyers, but will sink if a single submarine finds it, while the Destroyer can take out subs. This rock-paper-scissors relationship can be seen in just about every vehicle and infantry type (or which there are 5). As for the historical aspect, the planes and tanks look exactly the same on the history channel as they do in-game. Depending on the battle and country you are with, you will have a different variety of weapons as well. I also love how the voice commands are written in plain English, but spoken in Japanese, Russian, German, or whatever country you fight for (can be turned off, and there are subtitles anyway). Your history teacher would be proud to see you finally learning what he/she was trying to teach you the whole time. The majority of complaints I hear about BF42 include high system requirements, HORRIBLE admin capabilities for clans who want to run a server, and the in-accuracy of weapons. To that last point, I would add that this game requires more than twitch-reflexes and a fast comp to win... you need teamwork. There is no amount of hopping and ducking that will help you escape a destroyer shelling the beach, or a Panzer tank rolling down the hill. Also, if you unload a clip on full automatic, expect to hit a lot of air, while a smarter opponent will crouch, steady his aim, and fire in 2-3 round bursts. Once you get bored of 1942 combat, there are plenty of excellent quality mods such as Desert Combat (1990's Gulf War) or Eve of Destruction (Vietnam war) that easily make the game worthwhile on their own. IMHO, Desert Combat is to BF42 what Counter Strike is to Half-life.… Full Review »
Dec 7, 2013Battlefield 1942 is one of the best 1st person shooter games I have ever played.The game play is extremely fun in single player or multiplayer.The game is great you can go into tanks and aircraft.Going into those tanks feels great,you can kill those enemies by crashing them,shooting them,and even using your cannon against them.Going to the aircraft also feels good,you can fly to the air and you can kill those enemies by dropping you bomb into them.Although the game has a bad story the game play saves the game from getting a low score.This game is great but there are also some negatives in the game.The 1st one is that the game doesn't give you some you know what to press button if you are in here.I totally had some problems when I first played this game like getting stuck in where to respawn.I was so confuse and frustrated in that part.And there are many more confusing parts in here.2nd one of the most important here.You cannot customize your arsenal.WTF!There are only five sets in here.The medic,the scout,the anti tank,the assault,and the engineer.I wish I can customize what weapons and gear I will use.
While the game has 2 big problems it won't effect the game from getting a low score.The game gets a 9/10 for its extremely fun game play experience.That is why I recommend you to play this game now.You can download this game for free by having an origin account.And once you already have an origin account go to free games and you can see the Battlefield 1942 download for free.So try downloading this game now and have fun.… Full Review »
