A very fun and action packed game, BattleField: 1942 is a flawed but still entertaining game. The AI skills in this game are pretty bad. For your side at least. All of your allies pretty stand around doing nothing while you have to do everything. This isn't a particularly bad thing if you just want to blow off some steam and shoot up a map, but after a while it gets frustrating. The way that the maps are planned out and the strategic battle plans are organized are relatively accurate, but each map has at least one noticeable flaw in it. The weapons are relatively useless-it takes at least three machine gun shots to drop a single man, and an entire pistol mag to drop somebody. The tanks big guns are badly worked. When you fire it, the shell begins to descend as soon as it's out of the gun. The enemy forces tend to single you out as well. For example, your ally has a tank to your right and you have a pistol; the enemy would rather blow you away than go after the more powerful tank. I have been able to get past all of these flaws in the game and it is incredibly enjoyable. Definitely recommended for those who do not insist on complete historical accuracy. 8/10 For those who like historical accuracy (as i sometimes do) and a more authentic war and weaponry feel, i would recommend any of the Call Of Duty games.
