Battlefield 1942 is one of the best games ever made! Have you ever noticed, thousands of people still play online daily, in spite of the new games that just came out? It has decent graphics, a lot of variation, vehicles, a map editor (my favorite!), and, most important of any game, a great replay value. If this was just another game, would it still be so popular after coming out more than 10 years ago?
I love simple aircraft games. So far no game has had more thrilling aircraft battles than BF1942 (compare BF2 or any flight sim!).
I highly recommend this game still!
You should see some new maps coming out soon, as I am just starting to perfect the map editor.
