Battlefield 1942 Secret Weapons of WWII lets you control lethal experimental weapons from World War II. Straight from Allied and Axis laboratories, many of these weapons never saw combat until now.

Defeat your enemies with a variety of experimental firepower, including the Wasserfall Guided Rocket, the Natter Rocker Plane, and the revolutionary Rocket Pack. Drop from a cargo plane behind enemy lines and prepare for close combat with one-shot-kill knives, new machine guns, and more. Give all of these weapons and vehicles a trial by fire on eight new battle maps.

The missing sound effects is also a problem in the Windows version. I play that version at school and several times during a game its obvious that sounds are missing. Its as if the game only plays a few sounds on top of each other while other sounds just vanish. Just to let you know its not a Mac-only problem :)

I didn't think there was a Desert Combat v0.8? Their website doesn't say anything about it...

At first I was thinking this was going to be alot like my "Call of Duty" game. Same war--different game. (*please note: I am basing this review solely on the demo.)

BF1942 contains much less action per minute of gameplay than CoD. Big environments mean a lot of running or driving to get to the action. The tanks and jeeps are fun to drive, if a bit tipsy, an thats when you can find one. One major boffo--you run over an enemy, but he merely gets pushed along. Weird.

I loved the choice of unit. Assault, anti-tank, scout, (never tried medic--why bother), and engineer give a bit more depth-pf-play and replayability than CoD. Also, there are many commands available to give to teammates (but not real useful in demo).

Thankfully, this is not just another CoD shooter. It is different, but just as good. I can imagine myself owning both games and not being bugged by similarities.

I tested the demo on my eMac, 1.25 GHz, 512 MB memory with the graphics turned down. Gameplay was great.

I agree with the first posters -- 'old 800Mhz' is in quotes, because the machines are only two years old (hey, that's about as old as this game)! if you've got the dough to 'pony up' every two years you're a spoiled rich kid! add to that the fact that Apple makes it hard to upgrade individual components, and you have to ask --- who are they hoping to sell these games to? Not most Mac owners.

Game is okay, but WTF?? No multiplayer? This is BF1942 right? As it is, demo is a bit lame. And buggy - makes you quit the whole game just to restart a campaign.
