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.
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.
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.
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.
