Oh. My. GOD! It sucks so much! It looks like someone **** in the hard drive, plugged it in and, boom, there you go. But besides that, the code sucks too. Random lag on a LAN, crashes, kicks and a bunch of other crap that just sucks too. The game itself is boring and populated by idiots (direct quotes about team damage, from people complaining about TKers: "Its the skill of the game!" "i'll come back into the room only if you turn team damage on" (to which a friend of mine replies "So you can tk us?" (he says back "Exactly! TKing is fun! Its the best part of the game")

Besides that, its like the Beyonce` of games, really popular, but for no apparent reason. Wait, I take that back, Beyonce` is hot. Did I mention its just not fun? The flak turrets (essentialy the only anti-air devices in the game) take forever to actually hit something, and you need to hit a plane at least 6 times to actually destroy it, and it requires at least a football field of leading. The maps are so massive that the only way across is via vehicle, which the entire team usually ends up camping because of the previous statement. Otherwise, you get to do one of the only fun things in the game, which is to pilot really big ships. Even then, the fun doesn't last. The submarines best ability, being able to go underwater, is completley nerfed by the fact that when you do go underwater, all you can see is a background of what a submerged submarine supposedly looks like from the inside. No lock on torpedoes, no radar, no aiming up, even. The destroyers... Oh, the destroyers... I remeber passing another one and engaging in combat, and after destroying it, the explosion somehow travelled the 700-900 feet and went right into the place I was piloting the ship from. Damn realistic physics. What i'm trying to say is that the enemy ship sunk, mine didn't, but I died for no apparent reason... Other than that, there is the battleship, but people complain if you move it CLOSER to the objectives, since obviously, that would be a detriment to capturing them. Maybe its because the massive battleship has about the same armor as a goliath, and it takes about 10-15 defgun shots to utterly destroy... People complain about this, since they're too busy capturing the points to protect their own intital spawn point, and then complain about playing as a teammate... Oh, and the planes are impossible to fly... They have the same max speed as a skateboard and can hardly make it off the landing strip without a "pull-up pull up!!" moment... Oh, theres also incredibly slow swimming segments to get to land (the people who give a rats ass about realism should note that if the guns weren't covered in plastic (a la` Saving Private Ryan) they'd get waterlogged and not be able to shoot) without a boat, plane or mystical genie at which point you're pretty much a sitting duck, and cannot fire back or swim faster. At all. Theres also the deathmatch part of it... All I have to say is "good luck" since if you can actually find someone in the vehicle you inevitable used to get to the land, you deserve to kill them... Although, watch out, because realistically, if you try to go up too far, your plane starts to glide backwards like a kite. Realistically. And if you do land, the best tactic is to camp camp camp and camp some more. I even talked to one of the top 3 scorers post game and said all he did was stay in one place the whole game and hardly move an inch... Spawncamping in dive bombers is also an excellent tactic, as I followed and spectated the high scorer during the game, and you will never guess what he was doing. Ever. Never never never never.
Person 1: Lets go play SUPER REALISTIC battlefield online, so we can have fun. Realistic fun.
Person 2: Bull crap, Battlefield is as fun as dental work. Lets go play UT2k4

One of the most groundbreaking games in FPS history, allowing players to re-enact historical battles of World War 2 in surprising (if not perfect) accuracy and realism. This game was also the first FPS style game to feature the ability to command any vehicle or stationary weapon battery the player might come across during gameplay. (The game features almost any vehicle significant to the war, allowing players to command everything from a British Sherman Battle Tank to a Japanese Battleship)

Battlefield 1942 is not only a revolutionary game because of its unique style of gameplay combined with easy-to-operate controller configurations, but also because (despite comments made by my fellow Canadian, Random Hoser) it is considerably accurate historically, providing brief accounts of battles after the real victors have won, and making up a believable post-battle summaries if the winning team were infact defeated during the given battle.

Two expansions have been released by EA since the games original debut, first of which was the "Road to Rome" expansion, which added the French and Italien forces into the gameplay, and is truly worth purchasing, and the later-released "Secret Weapons of World War 2" expansion, which, in my opinion, strayed too far from the WW2 atmosphere generated by the original title and was not very enjoyable, nor worth the money I paid for it.

Many mods have also been released from various sources, although the most notorious of them are the "Eve of Destruction" mod (since been succeeded by EA's new release, "Battlefield Vietnam") and the glorious "Desert Combat" mod, which in my opinion is almost more enjoyable than the original game, and worth 7 hours to download.

In summary, Battlefield 1942 is one of the greatest (probably THE greatest) FPS title ever to be released, and is worth the original price ($49.99) to buy, even years after its release.

Counterstrike is a good game, but most people who play Battlefield 1942 see it as mediocre, and afterwards find it less enjoyable then the said title.

Player01 says: I found Secret Weapons of World War 2 wasn't as enjoyable as Road to Rome

Player02: No other game has ever allowed me to use me old FPS skills, while simultaneously giving me the option of strafing my friends in a P-51 Mustang!

An addicting on-line first-person shooter that re-enacts real WWII battles. A game that frequently involves spilling out an entire clip of ammunition on an opponent 2 feet away yet entirely missing.

Most players can be classified into 4 categories.

1. Players who know what they are doing.
2. Players who do nothing but camp next to planes and promply crash them into trees.
3. Players who do nothing but be annoying snipers and puss out for the entire battle.
4. Suicidal n00bs who shoot everyone and anything.
Player 1: Wait! I want to get in the boat to get to shore!
Player 2: STFU! I'm taking this 8 passenger boat for myself!

Best. Game. Evar. EA is leet now. Plus, the expansions are actually half-decent. Anyone that bashes this game is, sadly, a motherfucking dumbass casual gamer who doesn't know shit.
Hoser, you're a dumbass; the Americans, British, Soviets, and the Canadians are in the game, it's just that the entire Pacific thing was mainly the US.

Best game ever, without any doubt. Infinately better than MoH, and probably DoD and CS as well. Most realistic WW2 simulator of all time. Game for which Desert Combat was created.
I love BF1942 so much, I would willingly strap myself into a Matrix-type immersion pod and spend the rest of my life playing BF1942 and it's sequals!

Top 3 Reasons why the 2002 is the best year:

1. Call of Duty didn't exist on that year until 2003

2. Acting like a fanboy don't exist

3. Quick scoping, Hard scoping, Perks didn't exist
Battlefield 1942 is awesome, I'll be playing this all day

One of a few games in which you can drive ANY vehicle or command any stationary weapon you want, and not just drive, but be a passenger too. The game sucks alone, but with Desert Combat, Rise of Rome, or SWoWWII it ROCKS.
Let's play Battlefield 1942, but with the Desert Combat mod.
