Battlefield 1943
« on: 03 Aug 2009, 00:20 »

Yeah so, anyone get it for Xbox360 Arcade? I have to say that while there's only three maps and three professions it seems highly polished and its downright awesomely fun to play. Not top of the line graphics, but a lot better than I expected in an Arcade game, downright beautiful almost with all the lighting effects and such that you expect for this generation, fully destructible environments (buildings go boom and walls break in realistically and satisfyingly, a nifty little way of doing air raids, and in general a lot of the stuff that I've always loved about the battlefield games for a measly 1200 Microsoft points. I'm hoping there will be map packs. I'm running out of space on my stock hard drive though and the game is pretty big though, damn I need to upgrade.

(Also unrelated side note i can't decide between Secret of Monkey Island or Worms: Armageddon for the other 800 Microsoft points that I have since I had to buy in bulk. I haven't played Monkey Island ever, and I here tell that its awesome, but Worms: Armageddon was my favorite in the series and supposedly this one has basically that plus all of the other good stuff from other worms games.)

Secret of Monkey Island is an absolutely essential game, and the Special Edition brings it up to date very well.

Battlefield 1943 is now in my top 3 early-morning impulse buy list.  A lot of the games I've gotten were bought with money I shouldn't have spent, but a lot of them have become just so worth it.  1943's simplicity just makes it wonderful.  Solely multiplayer, but so fun to play that there's endless replay value in three maps and soldier classes.  Plus for achievement nerds like me, it's a relatively easy 200 points.

I must say I'm not too big a fan of Iwo Jima though.  I like the game format set up, the sort of Territories feel that isn't the awful one you get in pretty much every other FPS ever, but on Iwo Jima when the enemy has Mount Suribachi captured, unless you rush your team en masse and get lucky that nobody is in the MG nests, you're not getting that fucker back anytime soon.  Guadalcanal is an awesome map, however.

I've personally snuck in on the other side of the mountain using the landing craft, taken out four enemy combatants single-handedly and taken the mountain. Granted, I got lucky, but it can happen. Now get a team of us all on party chat doing it and we could own it. Though Iwo Jima is my absolutely least favorite of the three.

Yeah, true enough, even without using a landing craft there's a path up the side of the mountain that goes outside the left-hand MG nest's line of fire.  But like you said, a lot comes down to getting lucky with how many people are there, whether or not they see you first, etc.  The time I found that path, I saw somebody else take it and followed them up, then we both got killed by the tank parked up there.

If it's anything like 42, just bomb the shit out of the mountain from above whilst driving a chi-ha at it at full throttle.
