Sporting cooperative team-based play, the game used a capture and hold system to allow players to square off in massive multiplayer matches of up to 64 players. Players can play as either Axis or Allies, as well as the option to pick from several different roles including scout, assault, medic, anti-tank, or engineer. Each class could use different weapons on the battlefield to reduce the 'tickets' from the other team, piloting any vehicle you can lay your hands on including an aircraft carrier! The game was a smash hit and spawned an expansion pack called Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII. Eventually we saw Battlefield Vietnam, Battlefield 2, Battlefield 2142, and eventually Battlefield 2: Modern Combat which spelled the debut of the series on the console platform. Reception was fairly positive, spawning the subject of this review – Battlefield: Bad Company."
