Who Remembers Desert Combat?

Looking back, I think Desert Combat was single-handedly the best FPS game I have ever played. Being in a clan and competing on the old CAL and TWL ladders really added to the experience as well.

There was so much stuff you could do and I've never played another game where the dogfights were as good, not to mention, they had the best handling choppers (Apache anyone?).

But the best was when you get good air support in El Alamein, Gazala, Guadalcanal or any of the other big air/ground maps, hop in the SU-37 Frogfoot and seriously FUCK SHIT UP. I'm talking 64-1 KDRs. Joystick + that cannon + pinpoint bomb drops was seriously unstoppable.

I haven't played any games since DC that I've invested so much time and had so much fun in.

Feeling nostalgic

Same, but it was hella fun.

Loved the choppers feel, I was more of a hind pilot. The jets were fun too. There was little that wasn't fun with that mod.

I loved Desert Combat. My favorite map was Lost Village, the first one. It's by far my favorite mod of all time.

When I finally figured out how to fly the helos it was like Christmas morning and I found Hayden Panettiere under my tree.

Fuck yes. SA-342G rape time. I loved this helo. I could engage and kill everything but the quickest jet pilots with the guns. Yes, it needed a nerf badly.



edit: It was my understanding the the reason the DC helos handled like they did was because the flight model was basically a modified version of the prop fighters stood on the tail, hanging by the propeller. A little strange to think about, but my god it made for some great games.

One does not simply forget BF1942 and Desert Combat mod.

I was riding with a buddy in his truck a few weeks ago and we talked about DC for a good 15 mins. So fun to screw around in

Pretty much my favorite game. I played it competitively for about 3-4 years on TWL and Cal. Namtaru and I were also rocking the 2v2 TWL Air dogfight ladder.

Still fire it up every now and then, there are usually a few servers that are populated.
