How hard can it be to port all the previous maps from the BF series into BF2. I mean 1942 / Desert Combat, BF Vietnam. Surely someone clever can do this! I still play sometimes but I miss El Alamein!
Wouldn't you agree that there was something awesome about BF1942 that may just be inimitable? I do think that BF2 is a "better game" and the next logical step in the BF franchise. And yet I also think I can honestly say that there was something (more magical?) about bf1942. More transportive and escapist.
I remember reading a review by some game critic a few months after it came out, and the guy said that after playing Gazala and Midway for a few hours, he turned the game off and just had to sit back in awe at how it made him feel. BF1942 was not a perfect game, but I do miss something about it that I just haven't gotten from BF2.
Of course I know this would not seem a logical next step but I for one would love another WW2 shooter based on a new engine that could some how manage to recapture that magic I got from bf1942 in the first year I played it.
