Battlefield 1942

Gotta love modifications

                                                                                                   What I think about it
   It's time for another semi-classic. Battlefield 1942 was the beginning of the whole "Battlefield" franchise. The gameplay is pretty much the same as for the other Battlefield games in the series ( Very balanced, very intense action with a large number of vehicles to fly, drive, and float ), but the weapons fire a bit slower so it does feel weird if you've played any of the BF games after 1942 ( Battlefield Vietnam, Battlefield 2, and Battlefield 2142). You can control a wide range of vehicles in this game, from airplanes to tanks to jeeps, and even a whole aircraft carrier or battleship! This game was followed by two expansions, "Battlefield 1942: Road to Rome", and "Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons off WWII" ( My personal favorite, jetpacks never get old ). Then finally "Battlefield:Vietnam" came out, which was slightly disappointing in terms of progress. So if you enjoy combat, and want to kill people in a wide range of vehiles, Battlefield 1942 is for you!

  7. Heh, for all of those who do like WWII based games, you should try Red Orchestra ( http://www.redorchestragame.com/ ). It's also EXTREMELY realistic. Don't play if you don't want a challenge!
