"Up until just recently, console gamers have gotten the short end of the stick from DICE's shooters. Last generation's Battlefield 2 did little to change that, and offered gamers with a watered down version of the franchise. With the release of Battlefield: Bad Company, all of that changed. Realizing the potential in consoles, DICE soon announced work on a sequel to Bad Company and Battlefield 1943: a follow-up to the beloved Battlefield 1942. Set in the Pacific theater, the downloadable title invited gamers to enlist again in World War II, a time in history all too repeated in gaming."
