Battlefield 1942 in the test - grandiose multiplayer shooter in WWII

Author: Patrick Hartmann

We fought for every inch of polygon in the Battlefield 1942 solo campaign and LAN on the most famous battlefields of World War II.

On alert on a huge aircraft carrier of the Japanese Pacific fleet. The key to victory in the Pacific Ocean lies on the island group on the horizon: Midway. Excited soldiers squeeze into landing craft or prepare their planes on deck. The same picture just a few miles north aboard US Navy battleships. A little later the troops collide at the atoll. Sounds like a post-war color film from the fifties, but it's the tactical shooter Battlefield 1942.

House warfare and island hopping

The battlefields are clearly geared towards team-oriented multiplayer. However, since there was no operation on the Battlefield 1942 servers on the Internet by the time of going to press, our test team for solo mode and local network was examined.

In the campaign, fight your way through 16 infamous battles of World War II. Between Stalingrad and Wake Island in the Pacific, players travel to locations across the globe. You will recognize military operations that have already been used by screenwriters, such as the "Market Garden" company. Its goal is to conquer the Arnhem bridge. Before going to the gun, you always decide which side you want to line up with your mouse and keyboard: Axis Powers or Allies. In the solo campaign, for example, the British thwart the plans of Desert Fox Rommel in North Africa. The Germans, on the other hand, are trying to prevent the great invasion of Normandy.

One way to Tobruk, please!

Battlefield 1942 offers four game variants for multiplayer mercenaries: Deathmatch, Capture-the-Flag, Co-Op and Conquest.

The latter is the heart of the game and is also the rule set in the solo campaign. Depending on the card chosen, each team receives a certain number of so-called »tickets«. These hero tickets need fallen polygon warriors to be back on the field of honor after a few seconds. In addition, the teams gradually lose the coveted rebirth certificates if the opponent holds more than half of the key positions on a card. Players have to mark them with the respective national flag in order to use the new position as an entry point. This is why bitter position wars usually flare up around these "respawn" stations. The tickets are one-way bonuses and do not renew. Whoever uses up their tickets first loses the game.

Closed for leisure rambos

The opponents compete with five classes of soldiers. Their equipment determines their strengths and weaknesses. The engineer often goes under in direct confrontations with his puny standard rifle. In return, his explosive charges instantly evacuate entire bunker systems. If an injured “Medic” roars, hopefully the medic will come and patch him up again.

A team's scouts target the enemy with a sniper rifle or use artillery to search for targets. The bazooka of the anti-tank soldier helps against advancing steel giants, so that he can also crack tiger tanks like a sardine can. The MP shooter is the only one to storm the front without reloading with every shot. Most of the time, you select the professional group that the team most urgently needs as a reinforcement. However, the doctor in particular is mostly unemployed, because a precise hit can be fatal for his colleagues. Wildly unleashing ends in safe disaster; Well-considered teamwork is mandatory in Battlefield 1942.
