Blitzkrieg 2: Liberation
Battlefield 1942 Was a very good game. In some ways it still is a very good game, certainly worthy of a run-through on a rainy autumn night should you still own a copy and be after some low-spec WWII action.
You might even be tempted to download a mod or two, like Desert Combat, or Battlefield 1918. But would you be mad enough to buy an expansion pack, in this day and age? I guess that depends.
Good games live on long past their sell-by date because for a core group of people, underneath the dusty textures and worn mechanics, exists a very solid basis for future adventures. The Blitzkrieg games (purists still harp on about the first game being superior) have been expanded more than anyone thought possible, and whilst new features are hard to discern when given Supreme Commander and Company of Heroes are the yardsticks, there's enough here to keep WWII buffs away from their Airfix kits and Commando comics.
For the rest, eager to get their mitts on add-ons for the above mentioned flavour-of-the-week RTS poster boys, this may as well be a review of a banana for all the evidence of innovation there is.
I might be tempted to download this on a quiet night I might even play it for an hour or two - but pay for it? Nah mate!
