what is the vid of the non-flying planes and boats? Been searching around, and I can't find them. Every early trailer looks normal.

Anyways, the first time I played Battlefield was in 2004 when my dad bought a new Dell desktop. It was awesome with it's ATI 9800! I remember, I was 12 years old, no money, no shops that sold computer games in 30 km radius. So I searched on google for "Free games", "Free shooters" and so on. I downloaded four "games". Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault demo, Battlefield 1942 multiplayer demo, BF1942 singleplayer demo and BF1942 SWoWW2 multiplayer demo. God, I played those demos to pieces. I had a gamespy account and I had 500+ hours on both Bf42 mp demo and secret weapons of world war 2. It's sick, but Wake Island and Hellendoorn were NEVER boring. They REALLY should make a remake of Hellendoorn. It is a forgotten pearl, much better than Strike at Karkand IMHO.

I also remember when Battlefield 2 demo came out with Gulf of Oman... WOW. Unfortunately, I feel they failed a bit on the remake of that map on BF3.  The map feels much smaller now, and the game is too fast paced. This destroys some of the old stuff I LOVED about the map, like the fight for all the US starting posts by the sea. This could take minutes  before the attacker got a hold of the flag. On BF3, they take 10 seconds to get there.

Overall I don't like BF3 because it's way too fast paced, small maps, wtfweaponunlockssamefuckingsoundanddamageandaccurayonallweapons and spray and pray full auto. But, it's maybe just me being old and grumpy (>implying 20 years is old) and not liking changes. A 12 year old today will disagree with me...

Wall of text, oh well

The first time i played BF1942 was in a Cybercafe, or internet cafe. I was shocked, some 8 yrs old kid was watching the intro with me.. i couldn't believe i was seeing a Submarine and all that shit!


The PC was so bad it took hours to get everything up and running, i don't know how but i did ran Battleaxe..

Shit was great, i remember i was standing in a bunker with the MP40 and i also remember an airplane flying over my bunker, it was a spit.

Also the Menu Music was epic!
