    One of the worst WWII games of all time.

    I'm going to go right out and say it: battlefield 1942 stinks. If it didn't have it's easy -to-mod enviorment, it wouldn't have anything going for it. Offline Gameplay: The offline gameplay is so obviosuly an aftertho... Read Full Review

    A clean cut WWII shooter with style overshadowing realism.

    Battlefield 1942 stands on new ground. Where no game has gone before. 64 players per server make the battles as close to real as ever before. Although, it's still way off, with people running around jumping in and ou... Read Full Review
