I've got another serious question to consider, what is the movement like in BF1942? Can you do the lame bunny hop or dancing crap? Or is it more limited, like America's Army? Also, can you lean around corners and shoot your weapon? I'd rather not bother buying this game if the movement is gonna be like MOH or RTCW.
you can do everything except lean around corners, which kinda sucks, but you learn to live with it. This game is well worth the money!
if you are not sure download a demo of the game first
this is by far the BEST online war game i've played yet...you can drive everything and the mods are endless and theres over 80 new maps to download for free..and the Desert Combat mod ROCKS...you won't be dissappointed..:smokin:
Yeh BF 1942 Rocks. Most games are not as awsome as it, few can even try to match it. Drink up! :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer:
The way the player moves seems odd to me. You jerk around a lot and it seems laggy and clunky. It is a hard thing to describe but think of something like CS, the way you move is nice and smooth and the weapon isn’t bouncing around the screen. The weapons also don’t sound or feel quite right. The animations don’t match with the sounds and the sounds are crackly (not an error). With a game like CS the guns just feel better. EA should have shot for more CS/UT style movement physics, and not some much like MOHAA (cant think of anymore)
Despite using the crappiest most inefficient graphics engine EVER coded, the game more than makes up for it with all the vehicles. But also, the game is meant to be TEAM oriented, most people online don’t care about their team and often times do things that hurt the team.
Get it if you have some money, and aren’t afraid to be disappointed.
sounds to me like you need a better system...luggy and clunky???...you need more ram or a better vid card because it runs so smooth for me on my 3 computers...and CS is the worst game to compare BF1942 with..i tryed CS and was VERY dissappointed with the game...CS is like having a war in a basement..i konw alot of people play it but i don't think you know what your talking about...anyway go bunny hop around in CS and the team players will play BF1942...:smokin:
yeah the sound is a bit non feal rightish but its definately better than CS thats for sure!
sounds to me like you need a better system...luggy and clunky???...you need more ram or a better vid card because it runs so smooth for me on my 3 computers...
Um... no. I have a fine system. Please don’t assume. Like I said, it is hard to describe, you didn’t get what I was trying to say.
and CS is the worst game to compare BF1942 with..i tryed CS and was VERY dissappointed with the game...
Yeah, its such a bad game that people continue to play it years after it came out, right.
i don't think you know what your talking about...
I don’t thin YOU know what the hell you are talking about.
anyway go bunny hop around in CS and the team players will play BF1942...
Bunny hopping is no longer a problem, you have jump stamina and cant jump more than a few times without slowing to a crawl. Teamplayers play CS too.
Dont get me wrong, I love this game! But I gotta agree with JayBDey on this one. The player movement is kinda clunky, and the sound just doesnt seem to fit the actions alot of the time. This, however is a small tradeoff for the vehicle controls, which is where this game really shines. Whats really bugging me lately is when I come up from a prone position and my guy seems to be runnin at about half speed. Not sure if this is just me cause I havnt heard anyone else complain about it yet. I rarely play the ground assault maps like berlin anymore just because I dont care for the way the player controls and how long it takes to get anywhere on foot. Like I said I love this game and wouldnt give it up for anything, but sometimes I wish the players would move a bit more like SOF2 or even Wolf (not as fast as Wolf though).
Small problems really, considering how much joy I get out of playin this game.
