They took bad company, threw in some WW2 models and textures, 3 MP maps, and resold it on the market place as a 1942 sequel of sorts.

How about how much damage you can soak up?
How about how many bullets it takes to down an enemy?
How about the dogfighting?
How about some critical thinking?

have only been able to play the tutorial part of it... still cant connect to any games

you would think they could have tested the load through a beta or something.

That's what you get with EA, eh?

Holy shit, i can't wait until this comes to PC (game is really not made for a controller) i just played the tutorial since i can't connect to the EA server :fag: I'm loving the destructible environments and terrain. It's awesome how the sniper with the demo pack can now make his own fox hole. I really want to get it, but all my RL friends only play PC so i guess i will wait. Shit, now i'm excited for September.

BF1942 was one of the most amazing games i have ever played. I sunk so much time into it!

bf1942 was hands down the most fun I had. Constantly throwing down with 20id and demise was a blast. Too bad demise got busted for cheating. Always knew there was something up with their servers. Was hard as hell to beat them on their server.

Just played it for a few hours. Its nothing special. Mildly fun. But not a "must have" in any regards.

Has the typical console shittyness for an FPS though. People talking extremely loud and sounding like total shit on the mic... no way to mute single players from what I could tell. Joystick, ya... until its on PC that aspect sucks horribly. But it is only 15 bucks and I was bored.

Might be playing it some more. I would only suggest getting it if you are bored and have nothing else to play. Its only 15 bucks.

The tanks aim like ass btw. Like the turret wants to sorta hop around auto-aim almost. Just felt off or something. The actual steering is correct though, the turret aims and turns seperate from the bottom... unlike the plague of driving mechanics that copy that Halo garbage that drives where you aim. Its not like that, which is a HUGE plus for a console FPS.

I played a few more hours today and had an absolute blast. I love blowing away a wall to get to an enemy behind it. And the planes are fun as hell. The game looks great as well. The shooting/hitting an enemy feels just like all the other battlefield games, what I have always classified as a bit off in my brain but I got used to it. Air raids are fun, especially if the other team calls it in and you are in an airplane and you try to get to them to shoot em down before they drop thier bombs.

My one gripe is 12v12, I really would like a few more like 16v16 or more but one the current maps 12v12 just barely works. I'll be playing this for a long while

The maps are way too small. They need to increase the distance between the islands and the aircraft carriers. When you are dog fighting in a plane the AA guns have WAY too much range and unlike in BF2, you cant tell if somebody is in an AA gun until they blow you to pieces. If somebody hops in an AA gun you are defenseless and pretty much fucked. There are also 2 to every base and they respawn in about 20 seconds. Makes flying the planes a PITA tbh.

I played the trial last night and am pleasantly surprised at how much fun I had. Even though it is an older game, it still has that same epic feeling to it. For example, I was running around one of the bases and an enemy jeep was approaching. A teammate in a tank shot a blast at it. The jeep flipped several times in the air towards me and landed just near me at a house. The house and jeep were completely destroyed. I just started yelling at the top of my lungs in excitement!

Some questions though:
1) How do you steer the planes? I figured out how to accelerate and torque up and down but I couldn't make turns well at all. Also, how do you look behind you?

2) To change spawn points, is it really the right stick? So many times, I kept trying to change points to no avail, even though we did have them captured.

3) How do you join squads? Is there a button you need to press in order to talk? I didn't talk or see one squad member my whole time playing.

I think you hit a button first to turn off auto-spawn selection. Then the right stick lets you move where.

I gave in yesterday and bought it because a friend pressured me into it.

Anyways, the game is fun if you can get into a God damn game. The stupid EA servers are retarded. I'm sure you've all heard this before, but anytime you try to join a game, it just sits there and then says that it was unable to connect. Really frustrating, especially if you're trying to play with someone.

Edit: Also, the hit detection for the sniper rifles is pretty wonky. Shot a guy pretty much walking, so I know I didn't miss. And it didn't even register. That was a bunch of shenanigans.
