Excerpt: Battlefield 1942 isn't so much about 1942 as it is about the major battles of WWII in and around those years. The defense of Berlin, for example, is clearly a 1945 battle but that attitude represents Digital Illusion's approach to its WWII material. It pillages and plunders through the history books for what works and throws out what's inconvenient. German and Japanese forces are pitched against American, Russian and British ones in theaters across the world.
Excerpt: Battlefield 1942 is a game unlike any other World War II action game that has come before it. It recreates some of the action from the major battles of the war, on the Pacific, North African, Western, and Eastern Fronts. As a soldier in these battles you can drive a Jeep, man a tank, fly a plane, or fire the big guns of a battleship. You have an unprecedented amount of freedom to fight the battles on the land, sea, and air.
Excerpt: After months of incessantly playing Medal of Honor, it seemed like nothing would break the spell that game had over the local LAN. With interest in World War II at a recent high with the release of Band of Brothers on DVD, it seemed that anything that would topple MoH would have to be WWII themed. When Battlefield 1942 arrived, the battle was pretty much over. Battlefield 1942 is at its heart a multiplayer game.
Summary: It started as a buzz and grew to a roar. When Digital Illusions' Battlefield 1942 was first announced, it looked pretty much like just another in a seemingly endless supply of World War II-based games. But thanks to leaked and official demos, Battlefield 1942 soon became one of the most highly anticipated games of the year. That's hardly surprising, given its ambitious design.

Conclusion: Com Battlefield 1942, a EA/DI alcançou um grande feito: fazer com que um jogo de tiro em primeira pessoa baseado na segunda guerra seja original, tarefa dificílima nos dias de hoje. Mesmo que não tenha gráficos e sons de primeira linha, ele conseguirá diverti-lo durante muito tempo e, quem sabe, até substituir de vez o seu já ultrapassado Counter Strike. Altamente recomendado.
Pros: Muitas situações inusitadas e interessantes;, Modo multiplayer diferente, como há um bom tempo não víamos;, Jogabilidade variada e dinâmica;, Grande variedade de veículos para pilotar;, Mapas vastos e baseados em cenários reais da segunda guerra;
