    Battlefield 1942

    Hey has anyone gone out and bought it yet? Im thinking about picking it up on my way home from school tonight. I downloaded the multiplayer demo the day it came out and have had tons of fun playing. I cant wait to get my hands on the whole game :-p

    i dont know, i'm gonna wait until a patch comes out, because its really unfinished. the multiplayer demo, while it was fun, it was still really unpolished, ill wait and save my 50$

    What do you mean its not finished? The first demo might of had some bugs but if you patched it, then it was great! And of course you cant expect a beta demo test to be 100% perfect.

    um its a totally different game there black. the game you are talking about you controlled a plane and shot down enimies. this game is a first person shooter where you play as a soldier or can control various WWII era vehicles.

    well first was anti aliasing, i cant play a game without anti aliasing..w/AA the text would be unreadable.

    the menus would be reeeeeally slow (i know its not my comp..athlon 1800 (oc'ed), ti4400(oc'd to 300/660)), on wake island i would go in a landing craft and it would disappear from underneath me and id go flying in the water

    and oh, all the n00bs

    I have a few reasons for wanting to do this:

    1) my PC probably wouldn't be able to run the game anyways
    2) I spent a sh!t load of money on my xbox and i want to be able to get as much value out of it as possible
    3) Sometimes it's nice to be able to get away from my computer.
    4) I only buy strategy games, like Civ2, Civ3, EU, Caesar3, for the pc. I don't like havign to use the keyboard in other types of games.

    It's selling at 20th September here, I already ordered one. MPDemo doesn't run on my PC, but I get a new one for LAN Parties anyway. Seems to be great !

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
