I was running around Target the other day and noticed Battlefield 1942 on sale for $9.99. After experiencing BF2, should I buy 1942? How does the BF 1942 experience compare to the BF2 experience?
The BF1942 experience is pretty good, but it really depends on your POV. I suggest you DL the BF1942 demos, preferably the Secret Weapons of WWII expansion pack standalone demo (purely for the online play, of which BF1942 was the most acclaimed for). It includes singleplay conquest, and multiplay over internet. If you do decide to try MP with that demo, go on the Qussco servers (either #2 or #3), they're usually lagfree and are monitored with server software.
buy it. or, if ure afraid of spending those $9 download the demo first (although i had a bad experience with it - loads of lag...). of course it's not as shiny as bf2 and hasn't got as many features as bf2 and not so popular anymore but still many people play it. besides, u have tons of awesome mods (forgotten hope, battlefield pirates, desert combat final... these are the most played ones)
I'd buy it of course! I just fired the game up again after not playing it for ages and still enjoy it. There are still plenty of servers around.
nah, once you taste bf2, yeah, you say: woha i enjoyed bf2, but, now im gonna try bf42 again with all finished mods out there but... while you play you are constantly thinking about ey, this feat is in bf2, ey, i miss the ragdolls... etc... bf42 only worth it with mods
BF42 is so much better than BF2. I suggest you buy BF42, then download Desert Combat! DC is made by the people who made BF2, but has so much better gameplay!
