Product Description

Product Description

The multiplayer-focused expansion pack Battlefield 1942: The Road to Rome will focus exclusively on the largely under-publicised Italian and Sicilian campaigns of WWII. Players can choose to fight on six new maps including Operation Husky (Sicily) and the battles for Anzio and Monte Cassino. Each map comes with highly detailed environments such as Italian houses, Mediterranean trees and even the Monte Cassino Monestary.

Controllable vehicles are the heart of the Battlefield 1942 experience and The Road to Rome will feature eight new vehicles in addition to the more than 30 in the original title. These include the German BF-110 and British Mosquito twin-engine fighter-bombers. Also debuting is an Italian torpedo boat as well as British and German tanks and anti-tank guns.

Though multi-player experience will be the focus of The Road to Rome, there will be a mode of unique single-player action. These levels feature improved artificial intelligence with no scripting, which means that players will get a completely different experience each time.

The original Battlefield 1942 game will be required to play The Road to Rome.

Amazon.co.uk Review

With support for up to 64 players, The Road to Rome is a welcome expansion to EA's action-packed hit. And despite the fact it requires a copy of the original game to function, there's still plenty within the cellophane to justify the asking price.

While it's still possible to play the game in single-player mode, even the most ardent fan would acknowledge that despite welcome improvements, the game's charms for the lone player are severely limited. This is a title that lives and breathes through its multi-player focus and when it's being played online, it really is enormous fun.

At the heart of the full game was the range of vehicles; this add-on brings some welcome new additions to the fight. The crux of it all is still a battle being fought out between opposing armies and the action is viewed from a first-person perspective. To succeed, the game requires teamwork and lots of it: a hot-headed blast-and-go approach is rarely rewarded and the game is all the better for it. Where this add-on really scores though is in the design and balance of the extra maps it provides: these offer a better all-round balance and slightly larger playing arenas.

You could assume that because The Road to Rome is an add-on pack it doesn't offer too many gameplay enhancements. You'd be right. But it does enrich what's already in place and makes what was already a very good game even better. --Simon Brew

4.0 out of 5 stars Road to Rome Rocks 11 Feb 2003
By A Customer
As a dedicated Battlefield 1942 player the Road to Roame Add-on pack was greatly anticipated . I was not alone in this as I knew of at least 25 other players (insert clan plug here )were waiting with baited breath for the Postman to drop it theough their letterbox . Personally , I was waitng for 3 of the said copies from Amazon for my home network .
The terrain modelling boys must have been burning the midnight oil working on the six new maps . The detail of the new Road to Rome maps is as would be expected ....excellant , even better than anticipated to be honest.The varied terrain and the addition of more fixed machine gun positions , Ammo Boxes and Medical Posts add to the interest of the maps .
The addition of the Bayonet for the Engineer has made an improvement to the prevously underprotected class.
The inclusion of the British Sten gun has raised a few cheers from the ranks of players who Medic .
With the recent release of the 1.3 patch from EA , Road to Rome starts to fix a few of the niggly bugs that have unfortunatly plagued the game since the initial release last year .
For the Flyers like myself , we haven't been forgotten either . The German BF 110 & the British Mosquito bombers are a welcome addition to the Fighter Bomber arsenal .
New Tanks and APC's to charge headlong into the foray are another fun aspect of Road to Rome missions . To deal with them are the new fixed artillary pieces , the German PAK 75 and the British 25 Pdr.
The Road to Rome also adds two new Armies to the conflict , the Free French and of course the Italian Army and their weapons of war. Unfortunatly a few cases of friendly fire have taken place as the Italian uniform is not unlike the American GI's .

5.0 out of 5 stars Good things and not so good things. 11 Sep 2003
This expansion delivers a whole new payload of vehicles and six new maps each of which is obviously more crafted to multiplayer gaming than a representation of the real thing. This means that many of the maps are more exciting (with operation husky, a mad dash up a beach into a town full of italians while getting filled full of holes the best of them) and better than before. To play this (or the original) online you have to download a large patch(version 1.45) of about 107MB. If you have a 56k connection as I do there can be problems finding a good game online so better to invest if you have ISDN or broadband as this means a more enjoyable experiance. Overall a very enjoyable game and I find games on the maps included are fast paced and exciting.In fact my only problem is my internet connection! So if you meet me on the battlefield say hi will you?

5.0 out of 5 stars The best PC game in the world just got better! 23 April 2003
By A Customer
Been on all the Battlefield 1942 maps? Seen all the weapons? Then look no further than the expansion pack, the Road to Rome, the biggest expansion the world has ever seen!
The Road to Rome features the Italian and French forces with ace new maps - Battle of Anzio, a grassy area with a port dividing the map with a river, Battle of Salerno, with Hill 424 - the largest number of artillery weapons you have ever seen in your life, Monte Cassino, the bloodiest Artillery siege ever in a battle for the monastery, Monte Santa Croce, a huge map with rolling hills, open for huge artillery barrages, Operation Baytown, an absoulte death-hole assault over a winding hill, and Operation Husky, a beach landing which leads to an Italian village.
Despite the new Mosquito and BF-110 bombers, these maps are mainly based around heavy ground assaults, with the addition of powerful medium tanks such as the M3 Grant and half-tracks with a mounted turret. On levels such as Monte Cassino, you will face the most devastating artillery barrage against the French, or heavy sniper fire from the Germans.
The new weapons include the Italian assault's Breda Modelo 30, the British Sten Sub-machine gun for the French medic and the bayonet for all Engineer classes which replaces the knife. The two additional bomber planes are awesome, they are both surprisingly fast and agile and carry 10 sets of 4 bombs, with an additional rear gunner mounted on the BF-110.
In addition, the graphic quality has also been improved. Whether you play through a LAN or across the internet, this game features wicked action and awesome player models (the system specifications are the same as the original). On installing the game, you do need the original Battlefield 1942 game installed. It definitely helps if you have the updated 1.

Battlefield 1942 is a stunning game, it grips you like no other and will create many late nights with its epic multiplayer battles. However, the 6 new maps whilst good, are what other game companies normally give you as downloadable extras for free on a game's website, and don't normally release them as seperate packages. To justify the asking price, I would expect 20 or so new maps, more new weapons and more machines. This release has a rushed out feel, and I would recommend holding out for the more promising Secret Weapons 1942 expansion than investing in this. Another note - the players on the new maps are VERY good - novices like myself would be better learning the game on the original before rushing out to buy this.
