Gameplay of Battlefield 1943

EA and DICE unleashed Battlefield 1943 on Xbox Live Arcade and PSN this week, and what a great game this is! Included is three maps from Battlefield 1942, with a fourth released probably next week. The last couple of days have mostly been about errors and problems for many of the players, with freezing, lag and server downtime. It has gotten better and better for each day though, with EA both doubling and now probably triple the amount of servers. I've had problem free sessions all day long so it seems like it works well now, at least in Europe. In short, to me Battlefield is still the game that produces the most fun shooting gameplay and 1943 continues with insanely fun hours to be had.

INTERVIEW | X360, PS3 Thursday, July 2, 2009 | 8:05 PM

EA today announced a July 8th (XBLA) and 9th (PSN) release date for Battlefield 1943, and quite fittingly we also received a Q&A from the XCN. The producer, Gordon Van Dyke, took time to answer a bunch of questions; he said no plans for DLC are made, but he thinks every 1942 map is fitting for remaking. I couldn't agree more, let's do it EA - I want my Omaha Beach!

E3: Some Battlefield 1943 action

You asked for it, you got it. I crawled to the Battlefield 1943 stand and turned my shiny camera on. The action takes place on a not so quiet island in the Pacific. Old cuckoo dogfights, large tanks and jeep action, I wouldn't spend my holidays there.
