    It’s an interesting, stripped down version that still has a lot of fun packed in. This comes with the proviso of playing alongside decent players, of course.
  2. Battlefield 1943 is an impressive feat - it's a fun and gorgeous-looking downloadable game. If its rigid online structure can somehow be made more user-friendly in future patches, it'll be even more of a sure-bet that many of us will be playing for a long, long time, especially if this type of co-operative unlocking of features becomes a standard in future content.
  3. A decent remake of a great game, the only thing missing is more content.
  4. Battlefield 1943 is exactly the kind of game we like during these hot months -- not deep enough to play for an entire year (and at $15 a pop, would you expect to?) but definitely entertaining enough to tide you and your friends over until the fall's A-list releases.
  5. Dice took everything we loved from Battlefield and added more action packed gameplay. Battlefield 1943 offers a great multiplayer experience and total destruction, but tends to get repetitive because of a lack of modes.

However This is a game i love playing when im a little bored, its allways fun and you never know what is going to happend each time you play. However there are only 3 classes to choose from, and only 3 maps. Alltough this game could have been a little cheaper, its well worth its price. Expand

I mean , the graphics are decent, gameplay is more than OK , the Frostbite engine makes it even greater. They fixed a some kind of weird lagging Issue I had when playing Bad Company on Xbox360 ( you shoot the guy, but you aren't really hitting him ... "Reg" issue for CS fan ;D ) The only thing that game would need ( and that's the only reason I gave it a 7 cause it would be actually a 9 ) is because there is no download content. Having more maps would have been a good thing. ( maybe a level editor for fan-made maps ) Not only will the game would be better, They would sell more copies of it too . Expand
