    One of the worst WWII games of all time.

    Rated on February 01, 2005 by Pokeoddsponge

    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 o...

    This is by far one of the best games ever made.

    A clean cut WWII shooter with style overshadowing realism.

    Rated on August 30, 2004 by Voodoo2k3

    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 arou...
