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.
Yeah, there's some citing the frame drops as a stick to beat the game down with. Those people must not have had much fun back in the 5th and 6th gens. If they were around that is. (2 Hours ago)
it's in no way a dealbreaker for me. Hell....Dark Souls comes to mind with Blighttown and i still loved that area anyway. (2 Hours ago)
There hasn't been a word about visuals on Wii U yet but Edge mentioned some framerate problems when heavy weather effects happened, sometimes into the teens...hmm. (2 Hours ago)
@MrWhite: Yeah i honestly had not expected that. I've always believed we would never get the impact of a Mario 64 anymore or OOT, but if we go by Edge......damn. But i'll believe that when i see it:) (2 Hours ago)
That is some seriously high praise. It's lifted my anticipation through the roof. (2 Hours ago)
