    Ok, so I was looking at the preview for 1942. This game looks really good. I was wondering what people's thoughts were about this game, and other similar ones. Delta Force: Black Hawk Down, Call of Duty, Medal of Honor: Breakthrough, WW2 Online, etc. Does anyone really think one of these games stands above the rest, and how do you think 1942 will compare to the current games out there?

    i've heard great things about 1942 and i saw my friend play it once for PC and it looked really cool. i'd most definately like to get my hands on it. i really like Army Operations. i also play Raven Shield co-op and that's quite fun but i've been meaning to pick up a copy of Call of Duty and Battlefield 1942 for some time now... hhhmmmm... payday is next week...... :D

    The previews look fantastic, but in reality the game isn't as intense as the preview :D It's all a gimmick. But don't get me wrong, bf1942 is a good game.

    I have heard that BF1942 is all about the multiplay. You get to control every vehicle in the game, and do cool stuff. The campain sucks i've heard... compared to MOH series and COD. But i'm definately gonna try to buy it. It's supposed to be released soon...

    Well, I had BF 1942 & BF Vietnam on my PC and they are really worth it *thumbs up* Looking forward to buy in the first week when my PB arrives (should be soon) BF 1942 & WC3.. IMHO, these are they currently the best Games on Mac...

    Cheers

    BF1942 is a pretty cool game. The SP campaigns do suck because the AI is retarded. But it can be a good time killer too. Driving a variety of vehicles is fun, as is the "cooperative conquering" mindset.
    CoD is much better for SP missions. MP is pretty fun too.

    The Aspyr website says "June"... so they've got one more week to make it happen. :p

    It's even available for purchase at Apple.com, which kind of confuses me.

    it sounds like youve never played 1942, you should...one of the best out there, with moh:aa and cod...WW2 games are getting kinda old, but 1942 isnt one of them, good thing game developers started making games on the Vietnam war, (shellshock 67 & battlefield:vietnam)...

    Don't forget about America's Army. It's free, has a huge player base and very modern techniques of warfare. I actually can't stand the game personally, realistic FPS sim drive me nuts. It have a well deserved reputation and does merit attention. Gotta say I'm loving Jedi Academy right now.

    Don't skimp on the video card. It impacts your gameplay tremendously.
    And unless you're a hardcore computer user or scientist who crunches a lot of numbers, you really don't need a whole lot more then 1GB of RAM. Having the option is nice, but it's just not necessary. Plus RAM is cheaper from a 3rd party source. In a year or two when MAYBE you might actually need more RAM, it'll be even cheaper as all us G3/G4 slobs who need new computers have to buy G5s.
