"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."
