Scans of the Battlefield:1943 review from the August issue of PSM3
This will be a great time consumer till mw2 and even then it'll be a nice alternative to mw2 when you don't want to play.
I agree, but this and Fat Princess will prove to be my downfall, they look great stunning in their replayability.
I agree. I honestly will never get tired of WWII titles, but unfortunately my view on that doesn't gel with the masses. Apparently the vast amount of crap WWII games has left a bad taste in everyone's mouths. I'll definitely play MW2, but I have a feeling the multiplayer is gonna feel like more of the same. I'll most likely rent it and beat the campaign on a couple different difficulty settings. I know one could say "Well this is just more Battlefield same-ol same-ol! Hypocrite!" Not really. Take BF1942, add tons of polish and great sound and physics, up the resolution, and you get a much more compelling multiplayer experience. Call of Duty, on the other hand, has zero physics, canned animation (no ragdoll), and the gameplay has had almost zero changes to it since the beginning of the franchise. At least Battlefield has the Frostbite engine, which brings a host of changes to the overall experience. Battlefield 1943 on the other hand...15 bucks, some nice looking maps, good solid graphics engine for a multiplayer title, and plenty of replayability...I'll take it.
It's not the vast amount of crap WWII games, it's the vast amount of WWII games, period. People are just tired of the overflow, and it boggled many minds when Call of Duty actually went BACK to that time period. It's just been done to death, and it's tired. But this game looks fun. Looks something like Warhawk.
They can do as many WWII titles as they like. What has been done to death are WWII games that use the same FORMULA. Think about it, how many times have we played a COD/Medal of Honor game based on WWII, a ton. How many times have we played an RTS based on WWII, not many. What about sandbox WWII shooters, not many either. This is why I'm getting sick of COD/Medal of Honor based on WWII, I've played that formula too many friggin' times to even care. Battlefield on the other hand, I certainly wouldn't mind playing that again. It's a shooter but it's so much more different and offers a lot of variety in gameplay.
"People are just tired of the overflow, and it boggled many minds when Call of Duty actually went BACK to that time period. It's just been done to death, and it's tired." Not to sound redundant, but can't the same be said for "Modern Warfare" style games? To be honest, I prefer games based on history than games based on one's cynical view of the present.
i really cant wait , i played all the battlefield games and loved them , i just hope this game wont disappoint .
Why did I get a disagree?
Because N4G is full of pathetic people who get a hard on over disagreeing That's my opinion anyway.
Hey! It worked he got disagrees (somehow) Now... how do you kill the disagrees before they come.... Mods, can you help us out here? and some people who are fans of BF might not like it if you mention Modern Warfare 2 (i didn't like the first one... it got boring, no destruction)
Stop being so damn insecure. You got a disagree, so what? Are you gonna cry because people don't agree with your opinion? What is it with people and whining about people disagreeing with them on this site? It's not like someone stole something from you or called you a bad name. This site is really insecure when it comes to disagrees. You see people saying something like "I personally think this is a good game, yada yada" then they see a disagree and come back with a comment like "you are disagreeing that I think this is a good game? wow you have problems". They're not disagreeing that you don't think its a good game, [email protected], they're applying the "I like this game" idea to them, and saying that they don't. It's the same way it happens in a real conversation. Someone says "I like this game" in real life and the other person says "I don't". They are taking what they are hearing as a comment directed at them (and why shouldn't they, if you're posting to see your own comment and not discuss with anyone else, then you're a f*cking weirdo) and responding with the disagree option that they do not share the same opinion as you do. That's why people disagree with you, now would you all please just shut up and stop whining about a little number count next to your comment?
What's the record for disagrees here? I'd like to try and break it. I'll be waiting for Gt5 of GoW3 reviews from IGN to come out. If I can grab the first post and bash both games or just ps3 gamers in general. I should be the record holder for quite awhile
So did I touch a nerve by mentioning mw2? I'm sorry if none of you like it mentioned but it's biggest shooter of the year (After kz2).I wasn't whining I was legitimately questioning why I got disagrees. I don't see the problem created by stating that bf1943 could be played up to and after mw2. This site is ass-backwards sometimes.
^ biggest shooter of the year after KZ2? I think you'll find it the otherway around... !
So is this game like Bad company but in WWII? Or is it not as open world as Bad Company? Anyways I'm buying this game the gameplay vid looks great.
This game is a remake of the very first BF game, BF: 1942. It's set during the WWII era and it was the king of them all back in the day. It's replayability was ASTONISHING. If you like BF: BC, then you'll LOVE this game. No BF game will ever top BF: 1942/Secret Weapons/Road to Rome (expansions). I just hope that it's as fun as it is on the PC as it is on my PS3.
Is this game like Warhawk?
...Warhawk is like this game.
Hahah Breakfast, you can see with the comments here that average person who comes on n4g. The people have no idea what BF franchise is. Comparing a copycat game with one of the greatest multiplayer franchises in video game history. The preteens have no clue about games before 2004.
I dont know why people disagreed with a simple question... No, Warhawk reminds me of starfox game for gamecube... I dont like running around fast BF 1943 DESTRUCTION That is the BIG difference, OH and it's also a remake of 1942 (look it up) and it's WW2 (obviously)
most people here when they hear they hear of the battlefield franchise, think bad company. But for you console teens who don't know what real FPS gaming is... Battlefield is your chopper ridin grandaddy that brought land, sea, and air combat to the table. with 64 man servers I might add.
15$ for basically a WWII spin of BFBC, but also a revamped sequel almost to BF1942. Updated graphics, awesome gameplay, it takes place on an island, has guns and boats and tanks and planes and jeeps, and it costs 15 dollars. (yeah I said that twice). FIRST DAY FOR ME! XD This will keep me occupied for a bit while I'm at home.
Day one purchase for me
I have my MS points all ready (those points are ripoffs :( )
No point in getting this game since I have Warhawk (which is way better than this game).
I find that hard to believe... Unless you've played it! that's what I thought The difference is that in warhawk, everyone is running around faster than jackrabbits, and it's in the future with no destruction. :D
$15.00 :D I can do that.
Looks like it's gonna be a great game, for less :D
Atleast it will hold me off until, CODMW2 & MAG hit. Looks like a great deal for $15 but just wished it had more trophies.
Bah, I don't want to wait for September to play this :< At least DICE said they'd take out health regen and unlimited ammo.
It comes out on Thursday
8th (wednesday) for 360 :D
I'm not talking about the retarded console versions.
and must be ps3's most underrated game. however ive played 1200 hours of it so i will pick this game up just for something different. plus i like the WWII setting. cant wait!
Thursday can't come soon enough. I need a BF fix.
Good to see non fanboy comments for this game atleast. Let us BF junkies unite and play this game as never before. I hope somewhere in future we can have games support cross plat play online like the shadowrun did with PC and 360 but 360 vs PS3 so that we have equal footing. Can't wait for this. Man the hours / days/ months I lost playing BF:1942/DC/ BF:Vietnam, BF2, BF2142 and Badcompany.
Review isn't there now, lol. Account suspended.
I wondered what was going on, anyone got any other links with the scans still up?
BF 1942 was a fantastic game that i actually still play today. I will never tire of playing BF 1942 because it is one of the best games ever made IMO. The highlight for me in BF 1942 was strangely enough the ability to pilot the aircraft carriers :D But onto BF 1943, im hoping it lives up to the name (although im sure it will) as this could turn out to be a real hit!
messed up Bad Comany...i know BF doesnt have a lot of modes but the lack of features DICE implemented was terrble. You cant even make a private game and the party system...lets face it was terrible. One other thing that pissed me off was the lack of clan support...they know its one of the features that made their old games a hit...yet they ditched it and gave some gamers a BIG F...U Ill buy heroes so i can pass time.
the game looks really good i might go for it and it will keep me busy untill the bombs drop in the fall
hope it will be a great game cuz my ps3 broke and i can only play downloaded games and ill probably get it on the first day also
Sounds like your Blu-Ray drive has died. You'll need to get that fixed by Sony. Back up all your info before hand on an external HDD though.
Hi guys its person who owns 4thelulz.co.uk, a quick tip, if your looking to host a site please don't go with justhost.com because they are fu*king terrible. Trying to con me into buying an 'extra' server. Sorry about the site but it will be back up in due course. Cheers, Joshua.
You can't delete your disagrees or agrees even then I suggest to everyone that they don't get too worked up over the agree/disagree system.
