Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Battlefield 1942 Deluxe Edition includes Battlefield 1942 and the add-on pack The Road to Rome. Aimed squarely at the growing online-gaming market, Electronic Arts' PC action-strategy title Battlefield 1942 is a tense, involving game that wisely doesn't totally ignore the single player. Set in the midst of the Second World War, the action plays out as a satisfying hybrid of the tactical, slow build-up of Ghost Recon and the more action-based Medal of Honor: Allied Assault. Kicking off with a map of the area, each game requires some strategic planning before you get down to business; with 35 vehicles on offer, as well as five classes of character to step into the shoes of, there's much to consider.

To the developers' credit, this is quite an easy game to get to grips with, and it positively reeks of polish. The stylised graphics and sound convey the action well, and do contribute to the nice, slow build-up of tension before the skirmishes kick off. Even though you only control one character at a time, you are left feeling part of a team fighting against a common enemy. At its maximum capacity, up to 64 humans can take part in any single game and, even with smaller numbers, the online nature of the game is completely compelling. It's an easy recommendation for those who like to fight their battles over the net, and a reasonable, if limited single challenge too.

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 of the extra maps it provides: these offer a better all-round balance and slightly larger playing arenas. --Simon Brew

I had no problems about buying this game as the reviews all over the internet gave it top marks, at least I know I wouldnt end up with a lemon.
When I installed this game I was already connected to the internet. I decided to play campaign and off I went.
I was convinced I was playing online, when I died I would have to wait a few seconds to respawn and the other soldiers had personal names.
I disconnected from the net and discovered that this was how the game was. The whole feel is that your playing online even when your not.
Huge levels and very challenging. Aggression is a must if you want to push the enemy back and secure a victory. 'Camping' will get you nowhere
You can call for reinforcements if they are available, air support, artillery support and naval support.
You can be a foot soldier, pilot, tank commander or sniper, engineer, medic or machine gunner.
The mods for this game are plentiful and many of of the highest quality thus ensuring you will never get bored with this title.
One mod in particular 'Desert Combat' downloadable off the net for free will put you in modern day Iraq.
You wont be sorry with this game but be warned, it is a heavy game and your system must meet the minimum recommended spec in order to run it. Check EA's site for supported graphic cards

As a self confessed veteran of war-time games (I often think of my missus as a "Medal of Honor Widow"), i didn't really know what to expect from this game.
Medal of Honor and its additions have made me a #1 fan of first-person shooters, though Battlefield 1942 never really appealed to me. This has proved to be very foolish of me as I have only just realised HOW GOOD THIS GAME IS!
If I had taken 2 minutes to read the game description when it first came out, I wouldn't be writing this now!
Since the installation of Broadband and the purchase of a decent PC, Multiplayer gaming has possessed my life!
Battlefield 1942 is simply stunning in Multiplayer, a real good laugh, and the versatility of the game is jaw-dropping when you compare it to the limited movement in MoH.
Due to voice commands, and sheer determination to hold your postions, the teams work really well together; i.e. if you request a pick-up, someone will answer your call and pick you up in a tank/huey/boat etc! (how sweet?)
I HIGHLY recommend the Eve of Destruction add-on, to play a Vietnam version, which is a new game in itself and HIGHLY addictive!
Either way, this game will take over your life, you have been warned!
Downsides? Single player. But who likes playing on their own anyway?

Let's get this out of the way: Battlefield 1942 is a MULTIPLAYER game. Across a broadband connection on a fast server, you can quite possibly spend every waking hour playing this.
It is just FANTASTIC playing against real people, and the versatility of the game means you can hold your own against seasoned players by virtue of the different classes of character, and the staggering number of vehicles, mounted weapons, aircraft and ships you can commandeer or crew during a battle. Also, because the gameplay is based around controlling waypoints rather than simply running up frags, no single player can dominate, which sharpens up teamplay no end and again adds to the equality of participating players.
Ok, so whats wrong with single player? Answer: the team AI is possibly the most frustratingly crap I have ever, ever seen. I played single-player it just to get to know the maps and I nearly threw the damn computer out of the room in frustration. Teammates kill each other (and you) with frequent gusto, spawn 100 miles from the most hotly contested and strategically important waypoints leaving you stranded and alone against several tanks and machine gunners, and anti-tank infantry honestly couldn't hit a cows arse with a banjo. Ride in a tank and your AI driver/gunner will drive unerringly towards an enemy tank without firing a shot until you are both blown up; and AI pilots on your team clearly follow the US Air Force training manual as friendly fire incidents happen with monotonous regularity. (Unsurprisingly, enemy AI is usually vastly superior by the absence of a human on their team confusing the game's strategic logic).
My verdict - BF 1942 is the Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde of gaming - absolutely top of the class in multiplayer, woeful and pathetic in single player. BUY IT ANYWAY!

The deluxe edition of battlefield 1942 contains the original and the road to rome campaign. If you're bored of corridor war games like medal of honour where you have little affect on the outcome of a mission then you should buy battlefiald 1942. Rather than assume the role of just one soldier you assume the role of many. You spawn, fight, die and then respawn as another soldier. The game itself is very basic you kill as many of the enemy as you can and try to capture all of the flags on a map doing so will take points off the other army. Depending on the battle each amry starts with around 400 points when you kill a soldier a point is taken off, when you capture a flag a point is taken off the first army to lose all of its points loses the battle. The maps are huge and varied, you fight on the beaches, in cities and in the desert. You can controll all sorts of vehicles inclueding jeeps, tanks, fighter and bomber planes and can even take controll of giant aircraft carriers. If it was in the seond world war then you can use it in the game. Unlike many other games it is not scripted at all! compare for example the omaha beach level from battlefield 1942 with allied assault. In allied assault every in game charachter does the same thing over and over again you also have no choice you get thrown out of the landing craft and either head up the beach or die. In battlefield however you could drive the landing craft yourself onto the beach and take the tank up to the fortified base, or you could take controll of one of the ship artillary cannons and shell the fortified positions and its simple to do thanks to a great game engine. If you like FPS and war games then you will love this.
