: : : : : Battlefield: 1942

Background

In Battlefield 1942, you will experience the heat of battle as you heroically storm the beaches of Normandy, drive a tank across the deserts of northern Africa, pilot a fighter plane during the Battle of Midway, command a battleship at Guadalcanal, or parachute and commandeer a jeep in operation Market Garden. It is the only first person, team-based action game that places you in the midst of a raging WWII battlefield with 35 "machines of war" under your control. You'll pick up the sidearm of your choice and get behind the wheel of a variety of vehicles, ships, and aircraft to go to war on land, sea, and air during some of the most famous and pivotal battles of the Second World War.

Gameplay

Machines of War. Get behind the controls of 35 historically accurate WWII vehicles and fight a raging battle on land, sea, or air! Charge across the desert in a powerful tank or transport troops into battle in an armored APC. Pilot a heavy bomber over the drop zone or engage in a nail-biting dogfight. Fire the guns of a mighty battleship or prowl the sea-lanes in a submarine. The outcome of the battle depends upon the choices you make.
