For shooters, Call of Duty was a fun ride while it lasted.

Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault came out a few months back but stores
were quick to drop its price and the demo wasn't too satisfying. It
could be worth giving the demo a try if you're curious, but I'd stick
with the Call of Duty recommendation.

Obso-xxxxx-inglooty, Call of Duty is the best of the WWII FPS. Medal of
Honor: Pacific Assault was okay (better I thought that the original--in it
tried to copy a bit of the squad help from CoD); however, it was awful
repetitive (much more so than the first). That said, I enjoyed it and the
changes near the end were a pleasure.
Battlefield '42 was great and I still break it out now and again. Yes, very
much an active on-line game better suited (I guess) for multiplayer mode,
but the FPS aspect of it is still great.
Check back in a month, and I'll let you know about Brothers in Arms (the
road to hill 30)


If you move to Vietnam, then:
Viet Cong (Purple Haze and the first) were damn good. Once you get past the
corny dialog and horrible facial graphics, it is a pleasurable game.


My opinions, not yours necessarily.

Battlefield 1942 and Call Of Duty get my votes.

Go with Call of Duty. I've played all the way through it and the
United Offensive expansion. Great games. (the expansion is pretty
tough though)
In my opinion, FAR better than the MOH series.

You can try the demo to see if you like it:

I'm torn between BF1942 and MoHAA: Spearhead on-line at the mo.
Spearhead for the more personal objective matches, and BF1942 for the
team, take and hold ground aspect, and it's vehicles.

Andrew,

BF Vietnam did not turn me on like BF1942, which I still enjoy
playing almost as much as when it was released. And I still
wonder why.

Seems as if all the embellishments took away the clean simplicity
of the BF1942 gameplay, and even destroyed some of the
"immersion-factor". In BF1942, everything that was implemented
was implemented very cleanly, from water-effects to exploding
vehicles to rag-doll physics ( and with a lot of visual
humor with regard to some of the effects...). Hopefully BF2
will be closer in style to BF1942 than to BFV.

What is your opinion of BFV vs BF1942 in terms of
technical and UI implementation ( not theatre of combat ) ?

Call of Duty is probably the best for single player. Online is very fun
too. It's the more traditional first-person shooter set in WWII. If you
want the first-person point of view type game this is it. It's definitely a
step above the Medal of Honor games, although they're pretty good too.

Battlefield 1942 is excellent but for online only, and you *need* broadband
and a flightstick. It's rather pointless as a single player game.
"Battlefield" is a good name for it. Primarily it's playing large maps with
lots of players online, obtaining some kind of vehicle or plane and working
in teams to capture the objective. I consider the single-player mode just a
trainer for going online.

I enjoy it a lot as a single player game, and it has a damn sight more
replay value than CoD. Sure the bots can be dumb, but crank up the
difficulty and you still get a good challenge. If you want to do a lot
of flying then a stick is a good idea, but personally I prefer being
on the ground so I can capture the control points.

Gamespot wrote in their review that the game had "major bugs,
cumbersome controls, questionable AI, and other flaws," while praising
it in other areas and giving it 7.3.

How do you feel about the review?

Now that was a deal... I got the bundle for $175 from Newegg about a
year ago. FX590 still works like a champ; overclocks very nicely
too...

And hopefully we'll get CoD 2 for Xmas this year.

Are Brothers in Arms and CoD2 pretty much it for WWII shooters this year?

Probably. However, I would not be surprised if some of the most
popular BF1942 maps were ported (with embellishments) to BF2.
