View Full Version : New 1942 Demo out

08-19-2003, 06:36 AM
I just got this from IGN and it says that EA has released a new demo for Battlefield 1942. Wonder if it will be as good as the one already out? I have to get that game. Demo is fun but you can only play the same level so many times.

You can download it here:

Or a list of other servers:

Some of the reviews from fans say it isn't that great but I will find out myself later.

I never really got into the whole "Battlefield 1942" Scene. I just got annoyed when my friend spends an hour describing how he unsucsessfully mined a field....very boring tom me.

bf1942 is just a fun game to messs around in...I hardly ever try to play for real.

It's never a good fight either...either your team is getting their ass kicked or kicking ass.

I'm pissed. I started downloading the demo last night and it was like 8 hours. The I wake up and I see that I have like a hour and a half left so I am hyped. Then with 30 minutes left in the d/l I get dissconnected. So now I have to redownload it all over again tonight.

So how is the demo? I know it's a Single player one so I am going to be playing with a bunch of bot's so do I have a mission or do I just get to roam around and kill anything I please?

It's a multiplayer demo, trust me. ;)

But there's instant action SP for beginners too

Depending on the mode, you go around capturing spawn points or flags in MP

When I first saw this post, I immediately thought of the classic arcade vertical scrolling shooter "1942" ; )

The demo to me kind of sucked. I liked the new cars that can travel in water. A lot easier to kill people to and the sniper is practically useless right now on the map. I am sticking with the old one.

I like BF1942 because I have made some friends on there. My best pal is probably Jar Jar Stinks. He is a hell of a pilot. We always play the Japs together and since our connection is faster we usually get the planes first. I am a bomber since my computer cannot handle about 6 buttons being pressed from a fighter at the same time and Jar protects my rear. We make a great team and have a good chukle when we dominate the other people.

It is also funny because recently I killed this one guy 4 times in a row and he got pissed and started calling me names. He called me a B and I then got mad because why was I the B. I then proceeded to chase him around and dominate him. After each kill I would say, "Congratulations. You have been killed X many times by me. You are now officially my B. He then started taking it easy and even laughed about it so it was all cool in the end since he couldn't kill me.

Great game. I might play the demo as much as I play JK.

Have you tried playing Desert Combat? It's a mod that is out for BF 1942. I still haven't gotten to play the Secret Weapons over Normandy Demo but you can have most of the stuff in that in the Desert Combat Mod. The only thing that it isn't there is probally the Jet Pack. Other than than there are helicopters. Way more vehicles and it is fun too.
