Summary: The game works well and is as much fun as it was almost 10 years ago. However, don't even bother trying to play it online. It seems that you'll get invalid CD key errors. LAN games work, but internet based games will not.
Summary: Nothing wrong with the seller or amazon, but after the reviews this game got I couldn't wait to play it. Big disappointment if you like PS2 or XBox 1st person shooters. I found it slow, boring, repetitive and very hard to control. I will leave the FPS to the consoles.
Summary: Simple review.I order a simple item and over a week later,it has not even shipped!There is no excuse for this except that this company is drop shipping their orders and doesn't even have the in stock the item one orders.I have ordered a ton of stuff on the net,and this is simply ridiculous.
Summary: I can't actually rate the game, because I never got to play the multi-player version. The single-player is OK--except while she was watching me play, my teenage daughter asked if all the soldiers walked like ducks: ) My first online play attempt ended with the message that my CD key was bad. I googled all the possible solutions, and tried them all. Even the EA KB article. I emailed EA Support--they sent a link to the KB article--still did not work.
Summary: I bought this, not thinking and hoping it would be similar to the Battlefield 2 compilation. Not even close! The Battlefield 2 collection is so much more advanced, the graphics are 1000 times better, and the movement and attention to detail is also incredibly better than the 1942. Besides, I like playing online and I couldn't find anyone, ANYONE playing Battlefield 1942. There are thousands of people playing Battlefield 2.
Summary: The graphics and action may be very good, but it is the customer support behind the product that is most important! EA Games seems not to want to work with customers regarding simple problems.. such as inverting the mouse action. The game is totally unplayable unless there is a way to invert the mouse function. The default status is totally against logic for forward equals up, and backward equals down. All other game programs have the option to invert the mouse.
Summary: I wish I had not bought this game. It requires a code to install it says its on the lower left bottom of the box. There is no code. Try to call them or go to their web site etc no one can help. It's not worth the effort to try to return it by mail. I don't think I will buy anymore games on line besides best buy has all the same games at the same price.
