What can I say that hasn't already been said about Battlefield 1942?
The legendary MMOFPS that started it all packaged together with both its expansion packs doesn't only make good financial sense, but gives any war-gamer the one-box-stop to WWII heaven.
Playable online or over the LAN (other than the single player option) this game pits you against some of the biggest war-machines ever produced by mankind. And not only does it let you fight against them, but USE them. Every single vehicle in this game is playable. Jump in an artillery gun and blow up an incomming tank, then jump into an AA gun and bring down some enemy planes...but it doesn't stop there! jump in a plane, fly to the enemy base, bomb it to the ground, parachute down, grab one of their tanks and blast your way back out...did I mention the naval combat? including everything from aircraft cariers, to submarines, this game covers EVERY aspect of the legendary war, the likes of which will never be wittnessed again...and it leaves NOTHING to the imagination.
A definite 5 stars, hands down.

After 15 years of absence from the FPS scene (minus Star Wars Battlefront), I dove into this classic. Of course, modern games have superior architecture and graphics, but due to my hiatus from gaming, these graphics are fine by me, and the vast interactive pallet of vehicles, weapons, etc... suits me just fine.

I was longing for a game with really large maps and the flexibility of game play styles that BF1942 consistently delivers. I enjoyed the computer campaign, but have really fallen in love with the online gaming facet of BF1942. I am sure in another decade, I might feel like buying another new game, but I'm so happy with this one, it will definitely keep me entertained for years.

I have been a fan of BF:1942, it's expansion packs, and it's third-party mods since the game's first release. Love it!

HOWEVER, Battlefield: 1942 (and all of its expansion packs) is not playable on Windows 10.
Though extremely difficult, most people can find workarounds for Windows 8.1.
With a bit of head-scratching it's playable on Windows 7.

But... Microsoft just pushed Windows 10 on 30% of the PC market. And, due to the way the operating system is now more self-protected, the old DRM tools used from 2002-2008 for all of the Battlefield games of that time period are completely INCOMPATIBLE and unplayable.

It's a shame. A dirty, stinkin' shame.
And the worst part is that EA, DICE, and Origin have stated that they WILL NOT be updating the game to be compatible with Windows 10 (even though they ALREADY DID for the 'free download' last year).
Microsoft has also stated that they WILL NOT be allowing games that used this type of DRM to run on Windows 10, because they see it as a security risk. (It's true, hackers took advantage of the DRM...)

So, you're screwed unless you have Windows 7 or older, and you'll probably have issues with Windows 8. With Windows 10, your only option is a hacked and cracked copy of the game, and I do not support or endorse hacked/cracked downloads. That's just asking for trouble. They are, of course, also illegal, since it's illegal to circumvent copyright protection even if you own a legal copy of the game.

Though I am not a gaming fanatic, I occasionally get dragged from friends to internet-gaming places where I play the noteworthy games of that current period (Counterstrike, Medal of Honour, Starcraft etc). Having discovered Battlefield 1942 in the summer, I can truly say that I have spent many nights in internet-gaming places playing this, rather than actually 'going out.'

I must stress that Battlefield is an excellent game to play with friends and honestly, you will lose your track of time playing it. However, I find that I can never play alone in the freedom of my house, particularly because the single-player gaming is tedious and lacks real huma challenge. Capturing bases and sustaining them becomes a lot more easier, and thus a lot of the fun is missed.

The reason for the 4 star rating is though Battlefield 1942 is excellent, I feel the additions of 'Road to Rome' and especially 'Secret Weapons of WWII' are lacking. 'Road to Rome' offers several extra maps where you can play as an Italian in the role of the axis, and the missions are accurate portraying Italy's geographical circumstances. 'Secret Weapons' offers few extra maps that hardly warrant an additional gaming release and could have been introduced as patches. There are no new weapon additions (simply Italian variations), AI is still weak (playing at 80% is a pece of cake, while 100% is impossible), and bugs still exist.

To conclude, the game though is my definite favourite of an array I have played for LAN gaming. The two additions are ok, but will not offer you many extra hours of 'renewed' gaming time. Battlefield Vietnam and Desert Combat have added to tweaking the game, since it perfectly adapts to its historical setting and years of scenario.

The fundamental base has been set with 'Battlefield 1942'. Spoilt customers can only expect surpassed quality and perfection with the launch of Battlefield 2.

I play this game all the time i can. Its an incredible WW2 experience that spans so much territory with such incredible arsenals it has quickly became my favorite game. I first played it at my friends house on the original games and the next day i went out and got myself the anthology. Its perormance demands do however tend to be a little high as i have had to seet my graphics to nearly as low as possible to avoid lag and the game still looks incredible. Some of the actual gameplay problems include that though the game is designed for coordinated play whether in single player or multiplayer it doesnt always work like that. For example in single player, bots tend to run over thru fields while tanks drive right at them; another problem with bots is that they ttend to jump into vehicles and start moving with no one else in them. this is even true with multi player as people are to impatient to wait for otheres to get in 2 seater planes and such. Its like a seperate battle with teamates to get a vehicle. Coordinating artillery with stubborn teamates can be quite frustrating as well. Another thing that bugs me is that the vehicles dont have proper armor statistics; for example: if tou take an allied M3 light tank and attack a German Tiger and hit in front a few times youll destroy it however in real life to pull off an M3 taking down a Tiger it would have to get behind it or hit the treads or belly and even then it would be a suicide mission probably. Last thing ill talk about is that some vehicles dont have proper seating room like the sherman only holds 2 people when in reality its crewed by 5. That is probably whilepeople like driving tanks they dont want to be the fifth crew member who just reloads the gun. All in all this game is great for FPS lovers.
