Best Multiplayer Wargame,
This review is from: Battlefield 1942 (Video Game)
...If you are in to playing single-player wartime shooters and don't mind linear gameplay then Medal Of Honour is the game for you. The game is a classic and no-one has come close to matching the tension of the Omaha Beach landing.
However if you have a broadband connection and enjoy an open-ended multiplayer game then buy 1942. The sprawling landscape, the tanks, the jeeps, the planes and the battleships all filled with online soldiers co-operating to defeat the enemy. How you defeat the enemy is up to you and your comrades - there are no flashing red targets for you to attach bombs to...
The gameplay is so varied that it has to be filled by human players who don't rely on basic AI to instruct them to drive tanks or landing craft. Each game can be different in that you can hold the fort, attack the enemy base, co-ordinate a devastating bombardment or just have a sniper shootout with another player - it's your decision.
The graphics are fantastic and with so much happening you do need to have a very good spec. PC and internet connection. If you have these don't worry about finding servers to play on as it seems that the whole world is playing this online.
Battlefield 1942 is what you make of it and it has to be the future of gaming.
