BF 1943 - FREE!
« on: March 19, 2009, 08:48:53 AM »
EA are looking to release BF 1943 - which is essentially a cut down version of 1942 with a new graphics engine.

It looks pretty amazing.

I heard it was going to be cheaper than your average game so i thought a tenner, maybe 15 quid but free? How can i possibly refuse, think it's only 1 map and 3 classes though

Let someone else read it for you!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battlefield_1943

3 Maps, 3 Classes
CoD4 style regenerating health

Doesn't sound as bad as Tom made it out to be!

looking at the movie, one of the rifles the assault bloke is firing looks like the fast firing engr rifle.

Additionally, all the environment is destructible Buildings, bridges, trees etc.  Apparently it's quite fun to drive a tank through a building to kill the annoying soldier who is hiding in there . . .

in the PCG article it said about him trying to fly under the wooden bridge, failing and then it collapsing cutting the island off.

I wonder how this is going to work, because in 1942 that island has no other way off, and a jeep or two and tank spawn there, can you repair it? Will it respawn? I've been ignoring this game for exactly this reason, it's getting me moist.

p.s. there also appears to be cod4esqu sprint option, which is nice, now give me a cod4 knife!
