Summary: You can play individually, through a local network with multiple players, or through the internet with many players. A copy is needed for each player. Unfortunately, the game is quite old now. The graphics are not comparable to modern shooters but this keeps it at a T (teen) level and makes it cheap. The game is fun when playing as a team against the computer. The complete package gives a multitude of battle options. We now have three of these.
Summary: This one is slightly different in play mode. The one big thing is if you are shot you are a goner...no second chances and it plays more like a sniper game in other words you really really have to sneak up on folks and make sure you aren't targeted...if you're lucky you might be able to find a medic and heal yourself but don't count on it...so in fairness this game takes a bit more forethought.
Summary: Battlefield: The Complete Collection is what I would call bang for the buck. For the price of a mediocre meal at a third-rate restaurant, you get four different versions of the game voted "Best of 2002." Of course, one could argue that 2002 was a long time ago, and that graphics, sound, AI and so forth have come an enormously long way since then, one would also be missing the point. Some games are very playable and stand the test of time; some don't.
Summary: This game should be in every hardcore gamer's collection. While dated, it doesn't detract from what a brilliant game engine and revolutionary approach Battlefield 1942 introduced to the FPS genre. Having recently re-purchased and re-installed the game after many playing many new exciting titles by EA such as Battlefield 2 and Battlefield Bad Company 1/2 I can honestly say that there are elements found in 1942 that still make the game a worthwhile purchase not the least...
Summary: I remember playing this game a while back, around when it first came out. I remember I thoroughly enjoyed it but for one reason or another I stopped playing it and I lost it. I decided to try it again and I'm glad I did! The game is highly customizable with a number of mods to try. I recommend you try this game and I'm sure you'll like it.
Summary: From the other reviews, it's obvious that the real strength of this game lies in its multiplayer mode. Nonetheless, I bought it with the intention of playing it in a single player mode. For a stinkin' $10 you get BF1942, plus the two expansion packs and BF Vietnam with the WWII mod. Not a bad value unless the game really sucks, which it most certainly does not. It reminded me of Quake Wars, Enemy Territory.
Summary: Battlefield 1942 I prefer Single player mode, I am not into online play. This game has a fun campaign to play and instant battle. With this game I could learn to like online game play. Battlefield Vietnam, I was a little dissapointed with this game, no campaign, just instant battle or online game play. Not much in single player mode. The game is easy to install and get started playing.
Summary: I don't need to re-review the greatness of Battlefield 1942, with its engrossing and varied gameplay, and of course all the odd quirks. I just want to mention that this is paradoxically both the greatest collection of BF 1942 games in one package (Vietnam included), and the most infuriatingly sloppy compilation I've ever purchased. With 8 CD ROMs and 4 keycodes, I can't imagine a more unweidly and difficult install. (Come on EA, put it all on a DVD with one keycode.
Summary: *Note: I bought the pack with "Road to Rome", "Secret Weapons of WWII", and "Battlefield: Vietnam." When I first bought this game, I was hesitant, but I figured that I would buy it; I got it for $20, so I figured I wouldn't be out too much if it was a flop. It took a while for me to install it, but when I did, I'm glad I did! Okay, let me first off say that this game isn't exactly historically correct; but who cares? It's a fun game!
Summary: The thing I liked most about this movie was being able to play the Axis powers. I don't recall any FPS game out there where you can play the Germans or the Japanese. Would have been nice however if when playing the Axis powers and you get a Total Victory, that it could have gone to a "what if" type scenario. Even with a victory you still end up on the losing side. The game upsets me when you are playing a sharpshooter.
