Prepare To Face The Enemy.......

Your Fellow Soldiers are Counting on You! In Battlefield 1942, you will experience the heat of battle as you heroically storm the beaches of Normandy, drive a tank across the deserts of northern Africa, pilot a fighter plane during the Battle of Midway, command a battleship at Guadalcanal, or parachute and commandeer a jeep in operation Market Garden. It is the only first person, team-based action game that places you in the midst of a raging WWII battlefield with 35 "machines of war" under your control. You’ll pick up the sidearm of your choice and get behind the wheel of a variety of vehicles, ships, and aircraft to go to war on land, sea, and air during some of the most famous and pivotal battles of the Second World War.

Reviews:

Games Domain by Andrew S. Bub

"Battlefield: 1942 seemingly came out of nowhere...and it stormed servers and hard drives like the Russians into Berlin, the Americans on to the sands of Iwo Jima, and the Allies onto the beaches of Normandy. The compelling mix of aircraft, tank, jeep and infantry battling repeatedly proved addictive and whet appetites for more - more maps, more vehicles and more mayhem for fans worldwide to enjoy."

"The result, in spite of the admittedly minor quibbles, remains the most exhilarating mix of simulation, realism, arcade fun, destructive firepower, strategy and action available for your PC. Fun for flight sim fans, FPS fans, and anyone interested in taking on a tank armed with a machine gun, grenades and true grit. Battlefield: 1942 could be the war to end all wars. See you on the streets of Berlin."
