Battlefield 1942 road to Rome is the first expansion to the successful Battlefield series. Battlefield 1942 road to Rome has 6 new maps and all of the original Battlefield 1942 maps. There are also new weapons, vehicles, and environments with this expansion. It would have been nice is there was just a bit more of all of this, since lets face it, 6 maps and a few new vehicles and weapons just doesn’t cut it for an expansions, but fans will be pleased with the new maps for sure.The new maps are both urban and rural and they are set in Italy. The Italian is the new Axis country you can play as or go against. All of the new maps take place in Italy and for the most part, they are all well intact. Battlefield 1942 road to Rome doesn’t really mess with the Battlefield 1942 formula. All of the maps have the same type of gameplay where you try to take each others flags and dominate the map. Although it hasn’t been messed with, it is worth noting that 6 maps aren’t too much for an expansion. Although there are different types of tanks and jeeps that share the same looks the Italians had in World War 2, and some Italian rifles and machine guns have been added, ultimately Battlefield 1942 road to Rome just doesn’t add a whole lot to the Battlefield universe.The graphics for the most part, haven’t been messed with and still have the same looks as they did in the original Battlefield 1942. Although they have aged a bit, some of the particle effects and explosions have been tweaked, making a title that does stand out a bit more than its redecessor.Battlefield 1942 road to Rome has some excellent sound. With the weapons fire as good as ever, and huge explosions that make you jump, Battlefield 1942 road to Rome adds to some great weapon sounds and explosions that is something you would almost expect from a title like this. It is worth noting though that there is no real music that plays, so since most of the maps are pretty big, it can oddly quiet when all you hear is your own footsteps.Battlefield 1942 road to Rome is a worthy expansion that fans of the series have already bought and are probably enjoying right now, and since most people do love the Battlefield formula of capture the flag, most people probably will get this expansion. As I said before, it would have been nice if there was a bit more to the expansion though. It would have been nice if there was a bit more to the expansion though.
