Battlefield 1943 shows hope for the future of downloadable video games
Battlefield 1943 is an exciting First-Person-Shooter in which the player is either Japanese or American soldier fighting on 1 of 5 Japanese islands during the course of WWII. The plotline focuses on the war itself, therefore it is needless of an additional storyline. (I.E: a soldier trying to survive in order to get back to his family) Players shoot, blast, slash and impale infantry as well as mow them to the ground with war tanks or cars. Additionally, every soldier has the opportunity to launch a bombing raid or simply hop in a plane then aim & fire at whatever vehicle or person they find scattered about the island. The goal of the game is simple: capture the flags and kill anyone who stands in your way. While there aren't spurts of blood when a soldier is shot or an arm flying half way across the screen when someone hurls a grenade, the combat isn't any less fun than that of a Call of Duty game. With realistic graphics and smooth gameplay at the low cost of $15.00, it's the ideal choice if you are in search of a good war game without the blood and gore or waste of gasoline on the trip to GameStop.
