Summary: In general Battlefield 1942 is great game! However this Mac version has problems with lag. Even though this is a fairly old game and my Mac has good specs (Mac OS X 10.5.7 and 2.4GHz core2duo processor and 4GB of memory). My advice: play this game on a Windows PC and not on a Mac.
Summary: When I originally bought this game for my PC, it was awesome, smooth and nice graphics, all you could want for a huge online multiplayer game. That was a couple of years ago now. Since I have now recently purchased a Mac G4 PowerBook 1.67Ghz with a gig or ram and 128 mb graphics card, I thought that due to the age of this game that my new mac would have bags of power and capability to handle it smoothly with fairly nice graphics. How wrong i was.....
Summary: Battlefield 1842 is a WW2 Arcade game in which players can battle in a very basic singleplayer campain or players can battle on the net in various game types such as Capture The Flag, Coop, Conquest, and Team Deathmatch with upto 64 players. general: The graphics are pretty nice but the ground is lacking. no tall grass famr fields or anything like that...its simply just green or borwn ground with a few bushes and trees.
Summary: The idea & the game in overall is good. But because of its copy-protection program in it, it causes a lot of bugs. Even with my super high-end computer in 2003 (Athlon 2500+ 1.84GHz, 512DDR SDRam, Radeon 9600 Pro-128MB) it still bugs a lot. About the game, the Americans all wear the same uniform in every battles, from Europe to the Pacific which is wrong. The AI lacks a bit of intelligence when given orders or by itself.
Summary: Ok, I got this game for christmas, and i am not a big fan of FPS games, but i am very happy and impressed with the game and its play. I'll list the good points first: 1: Lots of different ways of playing. I.e. Tanks, PLanes, Artillery, battleship, infantry, etc. 2: Lots of different ways to change the difficulty level, tailoring it to your strengths and weaknesses to change how challanging it is. 3: Fun to play and just enjoy the simplicity of it.
Summary: I once heard that the thing about atomic blasts is that if you can see the explosion its probably too late, youre dead. I find that that saying is kinda like this game, if you see other people its probably too late, youre dead. Now I have played many a fps multiplayer game, from Quake to MOHAA, but this game is different. You can have enormous fun in this game if you are lucky, and it is that luck which really weighs heavy in this game.
