i just want to say, that if you're looking to try a new, cool game, battlefield 1942 is definately on my list of shizzle games right now. the combination of quasi-objective team play with the use of classes, multiple weapons, and multiple vehicles truly makes it a great game. it's damn close to reality for a lot of things too. i've never had an experience like i've had playing battlefield 1942. it's defo worth the $40. the good news is that if you've got a geforce 2 or better vid card, the game will run. once you get up to something like my radeon 9700 that can play at 1280 with 2x/8x aa/af, the game is pretty damn near cinematic. all i have to say, is WOW!
