I have been looking for a good first person shooter. WWII or sci-fi, anything good. I recently played a demo of Battlefield 1942. It was ok, but I couldn't really get into it. Maybe I'm just a flight sim junkie.

My jaw nearly hit my desk when I fired up one of the tracks of the IL2 demo for the first time. Haven't been able to duplicate that experience since.

Thanks for the help.

Call of Duty is a nice game. Single player mode is very good. Multiplayer is OK. Maps are way too small and mostly spray and pray. Unless you join a rifles only server. If you are new or sort of new to fps games, try the ppsh (russian) and thompson (US) machine guns. They are what I like to call easy guns. MP44, now that's a hard one, but one I love to use. Good luck!

Far Cry is the best fps.
It has an amazing AI, second-to-none graphic and
takes place in a "fresh" scenario.
It isn`t WWII, but that didn`t bother me anymore when I played for the first 10 minutes.
You should give it a try.

UT2004, 105maps, great multiplayer CTF DM TDM ASSAULT ONSLAUGHT INVASION MUTANT modes, good mods on the way theres ww2, realism, and orginal mods.

Its single player is pretty much a series of games against bots, the bots are very good tho but there is little story. Excellent graphics to and runs very well on most machines.

Ive said this 1000 times...Day of Defeat. Its a half-life based WW2 fps. Its the most realistic WW2 game with really cool claustrophobic maps, house to house fighting, realistic weapons that have great recoil and mic activation that allows u to talk to the other players on ur team..that parts really cool cos if u get killed whilst talking ur mic goes dead "watch out sni.....". if u have half life u can dl it for free. The only drawback is that it is a little old now but the gameplay is sooo realistic and ****-loads of people still play it.



COD and H&D2 are pretty cool too but i thought Far Cry was rubbish.

I couldnt at all get into Day of Defeat after playing MoH or CoD. Granted, it is probably more real in its combat, but the graphics look soooo...90s and washed out and very 2D. I just couldnt get past that.
HandD2 is probably the best thing going in combining realism, graphics, immersion, storyline and sound. Honestly, I've not gotten very far in it...because its damned hard. If you just want to shoot and kill...get Call of Duty. If you want to plan and think...get H and D 2. Or...get both!

Maybe you need to check out battlefield 1942 again. The demo is Wake Island, and its not exactly my favorite map. If not,

Call of Duty (latest and greatest WW2 infantry game)
Return to castle Wolfenstein & Medal of honor (a bit older but still good)
Day of Defeat (Half life mod that still has a good following)

I'm sorry but I didn't like Call of Duty at all, too scripted and way too Hollywood for me.

By far the two best FPS in my opinion are Hidden & Dangerous 2 and Vietcong. Both have great environments and atmosphere but more importantly both require tactics and planning to win. Hidden & Dangerous 2 is more like a sim and is the best FPS in a long time. Good control over squad mates and you equip your team before a campaign begins. Endurance is a big factor, there is a meter/number in meters to show the approximate distance from which you can be seen (which is effected by stance, cover, lighting, whether or not you just fired, etc. Great replay value with different modes as well.

Btw, I finished all three, H&D2 and Vietcong are much better than CoD for my tastes. If you like the scripted action, Hollywood rush type stuff then CoD is good, its just not for me.

You gotta admit that even though COD is indeed very scripted it does cleverly succeed in making you feel as if it isn`t. It also manages to create that `What the hell do i do know? What`s going on? I don`t wanna die!` feeling that`s VERY HARD to recreate in a first person shooter. And that is why it`s worth playing at least once for everyone (especially with the sound up- er with headphones!)

After that it becomes a scripted game with health packs, but first time round you will not notice it.

I must give Vietnam and H&D2 a shot.

I think Operation:Flashpoint is still the hands down most realistic fps, although it does look dated now.

Huge maps, realistic weapons and command structure, plausible storyline and so forth - it was primarily produced by a bunch of ex Czech army guys who really do know their stuff and it shows through and through.

First few missions and you'll find yourself confused, nervous (really) and unsure where the enemy is; just like real life.

As I said, it is quite dated now in terms of its looks but you should be able to find it for very litte money. Codemasters, the publishers, are working on a sequal too.

LOL Seafire, I finished CoD on veteran so there were no healthpacks at all (which is good). I don't mean to bad-mouth CoD, it certainly had its good points but its just not my thing at all while H&D2 was/is exactly what I was looking for. I'm now playing through it again in a mode where you have to kill all of the enemy forces instead of just achieving objectives and it is very challenging. Anyone who doesn't give H&D2 a shot is cheating themselves IMO, it really is an incredible game with so much tension and it keeps your head on a swivel as enemies are not always in the same position so even if you restart mission it will be different. Stealth, placing of squadmates at key positions, weapon selection, cover, reaction time, it all matters.

Agree MooCow, Operation Flashpoint was awesome.

I am a moderator on the official forums for the Red Orchestra mod that will shortly be released for Unreal 2004. It is a Eastern Front, WW2 realism mod. No fast running, hopping stuff. You don't even have a crosshair while firing from the hip, you need to bring up your sights to aim.

There is a public release for UT2003 which is at beta 1.2, but the new 2.0 for UT2004 is said to be out sometime this month. As I said, I moderate the official forums so I am biased, but I think it is the most realistic WW2 infantry combat experience yet.

What about Medal Of Honor? I can't belive noones mentioned it!

Its 2nd fave game (FB comes 1st) graphics arn't the best,but the variety of different countries and weapons is much better than anything in BF1942 or COD. Game pplay is brilliant. Different types of on-line game types...
*Tug-of-war - each side has to do certain things on a map,and whoever has done the most amount of things listed,wins.
*Round based matches - Each side starts of with all the players,but when a player dies, they cannot respawn un til that round is over, the side that has killed all their opponents,wins.
*Team death match - Basic team death match.
*Death match - Individuals agianst each other in a FFA.
*Objective - Each side has to do a task, and if one side manages to do it,they win. E.g - Axis defend a Flak 88,Allies have to destroy it.

If any does not like this game,fine by me,but they don't know what they're missing out on! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/crazy.gif

I played Medal of Honour Spearhead for a long time but Hidden & Dangerous 2 multiplay is much more realistic and exciting. They just came out with a new patch that altered one of the maps. I have had the most intense and gripping experiences with this game on multiplay. Great graphics, incredible 3D sound and absorbing action. And it has voice comm as part of the game!

Can you tell that I'm hooked?

Operation Flashpoint - simply superb, and the integrated editor is too cool. Drawback is no "join in progress" multiplay - everyone has to be in the lobby and ready to be included in the mission. Nothing close to this one for Coop MP though.

Halo is the best Sci-Fi FPS I've played (good story and neat AI) - though the multiplay isn't too hot.

COD isnt very good value for your money. It´s short as hell and you have to play on veteran or similar to get any kind of longetivity. That also means you are on a quicksave mayhem.

Depending on your sig if you want something to make your jaw drop to the floor you have to get Far Cry. It´s arguable the best fps ever done.

Not only that it´s also the most beautiful PC game ever created up to this point. If you want to know how future titles like HL 2 and Stalker will look like get Far Cry.

But to be able to max everything out in 1024x768x32 I recommend this setup.

1 Gig of DDR 400 RAM
9800 PRO
3200+ or 3.2 Gig Intel CPU

Don´t be scared about the low resolution. It still looks way way better than any other fps out today and it isn´t as jaggy as you could imagine.

And the best of all it´s not only about visuals. It has the best AI ever seen. The gameplay is very open. There is always several ways to solve a problem. Perfect level design and difficulty at least when you use autobalancing AI. Weapons works flawless as well as enemies. Best physics seen yet. Awesome audio the best in a fps seen yet. You don´t want to play this game on anything less than a Dolby Digital 5.1 system.

well over 20 hours of gameplay and tons of replayability. Very very modable.

The only thing that seem to lack a bit is the MP but as a single player fps it´s really unsurpassed.

OFP hands down wins my vote. The scenerios are endless utulizing the editor and addons available. One of my favorite features is the absence of running into the scenery as if it were a brick wall. In other FPS I get that mouse in a maze feel. Ya must follow the path layed out.

If your lookin for a good all round FPS that you can manipulate to your hearts desire then OFP is your best choice imho.

Now I have YET to get the Pacific titles of MoH, but I have seen a video demo and it looks promising, but not enough to do better than all these other FPS games that the community is naming.

Aliens vs Predator II.

I'm a FB/GPL fan at heart, but behind these 2 I like my FPSs a lot...

AvP was a spot tricky for me - though v.v. scary. AvP2 kept much of the tension, but had better balance, imho.

For fans of the movies, though, really. I loved 'em.

Also MoH, and CoD, and Max Payne (2, esp.) - all already mentioned.

For Multiplayer, Q3 remains a god.

For something utterly off the wall, try American McGee's Alice. A strange, dark and twisted retelling of Alice in Wonderland, by FPS! Yup, it's as odd as it sounds. Wait till you slice someone up with a playing card... Good, atmospheric, adult stuff.

Finally, my latest poison is Halo for PC. Good story, voice acting, well-designed levels, neat AI, vehicles before others thought of them, good weapons, nice bad guys - albeit a little repetitive. Nice.

I too must vote for Operation Flashpoint: Resistance. It is by far the most realistic ever created, has truely unlimited mission building capabilities, the single best AI ever created for an FPS game and a massive modding community. Cheating in multiplayer is very rare and there are still plenty of people willing to play it with you. The graphics arn't terribly dated. Yes the buildings and lighting is sub standard by todays standards but keep in mind that its maps are very big. Games such as COD and MOH have maximum view ranges of less than 200m, this makes everything except MG's and SMG's worthless. The maximum viewing range in OFP:R is in excess of 4km http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif. This makes sniper rifles and full size assault rifles very competitive. And even though the graphics engine is geared more towards long ranges, the close range graphics are not too bad. The stock maps and textures do a look a little dated but there are plenty of new 3rd party maps and textures that update it all. New sounds are also constantly being made for it. Until OFP2 is released, I don't think OFP:R will loose its place as the top FPS game. I have MOH and a few of the addons for it and I have COD as well but OFP:R remains my most played FPS game.

If you are into Il2 then sims are probably your thing, there fore Hidden and Dangerous 2 will probably be your cup of tea more than the 'one man army' type of fps as its more realistic and contains thinking as well as reflexes. Also Deus Ex 2 contains an equal amount of brains and Brawn. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif DE2 is not as good as the first one but is still a good game.

Any of these 4 are amazing games.

Hidden and Dangerous 2
Far Cry
Call Of Duty
Deus Ex 2.

The only problem is that if you dont have an up to date PC then Far Cry and Deus Ex 2 are VERY demanding games. In fact they are the only 2 which my PC has trouble with and I play EVERY big game which comes out. I could play them but the framerate was pretty low, Dipping below 20 fps in some places.

My PC is a Barton 2500+, 256mb ram and a Radeon 8500 (same as a Radeon 9200). So if your PC is slower than mine, choose Call Of Duty or H&D 2 for sure.

Im getting very tired of the FPS genre. Ive played most of them.

COD after the initial wow factor soon became boring. I have played about 10 missions and know I will never finish it. It is one of the best FPS out there. But it being an FPS means that the game mechanics are like any other. There is no incentive in it for me to go any further..

I feel this doesnt just apply to FPS but nearly every game Ive ever played.

FPS by its very nature is a restricted format.
OP flashpoint is one Id have to say had the most realistic feel to it. I also like Ghost Recon as a little tactics was involved.

In the end its run,duck,shoot. When they bring out another which has the atmosphere of COD but with the gameplay of OP then I will buy another. Until then I will not bother. Flight Sims have far more to them than FPS games however if they are played on the most easy of settings they become an FPS in the sky.

I have Flashpoint & Resistance. I never really could get anywhere & got killed several times by guys shooting opensight that I could barely see much less hit. If you want 'em let me know & I'll send them to you. HD2 is pretty good and stealth & planning is a big help. You can't just wander around shooting everything in sight cause the AI will get you. Battlefield Vietnam is good but all you get is instant battles, there is no campaign feature like in Battlefiled 1942. Halo is pretty good and Halo 2 is supposed to be better (Sept. release last I heard).

pfft, you should have shot them first. The AI engages only out to about 500m with regular assualt weapons. Your M-16A2 or AK-47/74 can hit targets at that range with no problem. Just take your time with the shots.

Wotan - You should try 'deeper' fps games like Deus Ex 2 where there is more to do than just shoot people.

Icrash, you can still zoom a bit by looking down your sights with the right mouse button in OFP. Also try and make yourself a smaller target by crouching or lying down. Don't just stand out in the open shooting otherwise you are a sitting target. If you aim properly you can take people out from a long way away even with open sights.
If you can't hit with open sights,then try and scavenge a H&K with the scope on it or a Steyer Aug pretty early in Resistence as you get a weapons pool which you can make up to contain what you want depending on what you pick up off the battlefield.

I play or have played:

Call of Duty
MOHAA
H&D / H&D2
Operation Flashpoint
Ghost Recon
Red Faction
Delta Force
Counter Strike
Thief Gold / Thief 2

My favourites are/were Thief1/2, Delta Force, H&D1&2 & Ghost Recon because they are free ranging and goal oriented. Thief is single player only though.

What suits you will depend a lot on what style of play you want from a fps game.

Tully, if you enjoyed the Delta Force series try the Joint Operations: Typhoon Rising beta. It is not a proper demo yet, just a MP beta so expect some bugs, but it is the progression of Delta Force, they just dropped the name and added vehicles.

I have also played it on 120 man servers... crazy stuff.

Excellent game but it's free because it's a recruitment tool for the US Army. Not my cup of tea http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Operation Flashpoint is still the reference for me. The countless addons and mods bring fresh air to this game almost on a daily basis. You can find almost anything these days, from WWII units and vehicles, to modern Finnish or Czech army mods. The big maps and the driveable vehicles give a feeling of taking part in battles much larger than your usual FPS, something not realy matched elsewhere.

Battlefield Vietnam is also an excellent game. A shameless arcade full of funny silly details. The helicopters are a joy to fly, and giving and air suport to the grunts on the ground makes me happy. Refreshing unpretentious gaming fun http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I'll never understand online cheaters. Where is the fun in killing everybody there without any challenge? Their only goal seems to spoil the fun of the others... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

AS for FPS, I divide them in four types:

- Kill-kill FPS: I like Halo or JK series. You just have to look for the level exit and kill everybody in the way. Very much like Doom, and ideal for the occasional adrenaline release.

- Film-like FPS: They began with HL. I like COD. You're in a scripted Theme Park Tour, and you enjoy the recreation of real life and film situations as you try to see what's next. Not too re-playable but immersive and impressive.

- Tactic FPS: Like H&D, Ghost Recon or the Rainbow 6 series. Slow-paced simulators where you manage a team and have to accomplish a goal. Somewhat slow and frustrating, but rewarding when you do it well.

- Online FPS: There are two more kinds: The close-room ones (like Quake, CS, and the online clones like MOH or COD) where everybody's too near and it's a carnage without too much space for tactics; and the open ones, like Renegade and BF1942, which is my favourite, because you can think what to do, coordinate with teams, and try many different things. UT2004 and BFV would be something in the middle: scenarios are big but not huge, and they're more action-packed.

I've played most of them, and I like them, but I think Far Cry is gonna open new ways for a genre that needs new ideas soon.

These are the ones I liked most, among the ones I tried:


First, undisputed, Operation Flashpoint (OFP2 in the works - look for the Game Of The Year edition which includes 2 exp. packs in the while). The IL-2 in FPS's... It's a bit outdated, but outstanding still, including the views (if not the graphic tout curt...).

Then, Hidden & Dangerous 2 (the first episode was great too but it's as dated as Half Life now...) and Vietcong (+ exp. pack). Superb.

Again, Ghost Recon (+ 2 exp. Packs) (GR2 in the works) is still plesant. As the more recent Raven Shield (+ exp. pack) is. Delta Force: Black Hawk Down (+ exp. pack) ain't bad either, although really arcadish.

Multiplayer? Try the downloadable America's Army then.

Must it be a combat FPS? Otherwise, Mafia MUST be played (not for a chance a close relative to H&D2 and VTC), and the Max Payne/Max Payne 2 shoot'em up's are interesting too.
Splinter Cell is worth a try, and both No One Lives Forever titles are arcade and fun!

I heared wonders of the arcade Far Cry's graphic and physics engine too.

Lol, You say AA is a recruitment tool as if its a bad thing. You hardly notice once you play it and get into it, seems like a waste to not play a game just because theres a touch of propaganda in it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Anyway, AA Is great, multiplayer only, free, what more could you ask??

I am in a clan in RavenShield called =GUI= and so far, RvS is the best Multiplayer game I have played, I play it more than IL2 and most other games because it is just good.

OFP I found to be a touch too boring on Multiplayer, cool single player and the graphics are getting a little dated, still a bl**dy good game and worth a purchase.
CoD is fun, simple as that. Like someone previously said, its like a theme park roller coaster ride, you get on, the first level is like when your riding up to the top of the first and biggest drop, trying to keep your head together but also knowing that whats ahead is going to be mad, the second level (when your running down the field) is like beginning to fall down the first drop and your thinking "JESUS CHRIST!!! What the hell is going on!?" then the game slows down and your left with the rest of the roller coaster ride, great fun...And you guys have got to love the Stalingrad scene, taken almost directly of "Enemy at the gates" As for multiplayer, slight let down, mostly spray and pray, not too much thinking, fun. Lots of realism mods really add to it though...

Looks like Im going to have to invest in H&D2...

Operation Flashpoint is the reference for me also. The graphics were dated even when it was released, but the gameplay made up for it with spades. To me, it had three annoying things; bad clipping (you often fell through walls!), bad method to join a multiplayer game, some really stupid AI that wouldn't obey orders and charged off to their deaths (like FB AI not bailing out of their planes when they run out of fuel!) But again, the immersion made up for all of that. OFP2 should be AMAZING http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

I also like America's Army for a frag-fest but it's dominated by dweebs who have learned every map off by heart so there is a lot of spamming etc.

The FarCry demo was impressive even with my Ti4600. If I had a better card, I'd probably buy it.

-Hitman II/(III)
-Max Payne I/II
-Splinter Cell I/(II)
-Jedi Knight Outcast/Academy

Tully, a fellow Thief fan!! Thief III is due out this spring/summmer, and I'm looking forward to it. More of a first person sculker, than shooter though. Apparently Garrett gets more fighting ability in the third game, however. The Splinter Cell and Hitman games can also fall into this category, and I liked both (both with sequels due out soon on PC.)

Jedi Knight (Outcast and Academy) were great, and much better than the last two movies. I agree with others that both JK and Max Payne are more linear, scripted, kill anything that moves shooters.

Haven't got Far Cry yet, but it's just a matter of time. I like the reviews of its AI, and the lack of scripting (the Deus Ex, Thief and Hitman series are also good for allowing you to figure out a solution for yourself, instead of figuring out how the script is supposed to go.)

With all the talk here about Operation: Flashpoint, I may have to dig that one out and finally play it. Hardware problems/moving/getting married distracted me when it first came out (not necessarily in that order.)

I was going to mention Half Life 2, but checking Amazon, they list the release date as "December 31, 1969"!! It's starting to remind me of Duke Nukem.

They've got a release date for Doom III that is a little more likely, of June 1 2004. That should be fun, too.

One more vote for Red Orchestra! I used to play Day of Defeat, but the way it was dumbed down for 1.0 release I just gave up and went out looking for a new game... and Red Orchestra was exactly what I was looking for! WWII, Eastern front, and difficult enought to keep the majority of whiners out. If close quarters skirmishes are your thing, this is THE game! Room by room streetfights with PPSh machine guns, cracking skulls with the butt of your gun when bullets run out, performing amateur abdominal surgery with your bayonet in staircases, using the enemy's own hardware against them after you mow them down... Did I also mention the absence of crosshairs & real 3d iron sight system?

Medal of Honour, although Call of Duty, IMO has surpassed it.

Half life is 6 years old, but it still kicks ***!! (am waiting for HL2, but I'll prolly be flying in Defiants before I'm zapping more monsters, hehe)

Call of Duty, as mentioned above, kicks *** too!!

Counterstrike Fans look away now!!

America's Army kicks *** coz it's free, and the emphasis is on team work, although there is no offline campaigns, it is purely an online experience.
(CS fans, u can look now!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif )

Haven't tried BF: 1942 but I'm told it rocks mainly coz of the scope of the online game. You can fly, you can drive a tank, or you can be a good old grunt, whatever tickles yer fancy.

That's about it.

Oh yeah, Unreal Tournament apparently kicks royal *** as well, specially now it has vehicles.

There's definately no shortage of them, and there is also a Pacific Medal of Honour game being made to be released towards the end of the year.

I hate to drag out an old thread, but I wanted to say thanks again for all your suggestions. It helped me to find out a little more about some good FPS games.

First and foremost, I realized I am a total flight sim junkie, but...

I have to say that Hidden and dangerous2 is my favorite fps game so far. CoD is great for putting you in that "all hell breaks loose" firefight, but I preferred the eerie tension of HD2. I am terrible at the demo, but this is a "must have" for me.

I also bought BF1942 because it was cheap and liked that more than the demo. It is very flexible and you can make it into whatever kind of game you want. I still can't bring myself to fly the planes after being so spoiled with IL2.

I also played a demo of the original half-life and would like to try day of defeat at some point.

I will also try some of the other suggestions. Thanks again! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I doubt just naming a few is really helpfull. I played all of the games listed here and maybe a few words to each game will help you.

HalfLife/CounterStrike/DayOfDefeat
Very popular engine with many mods. If you have a slow machine or like 6-7 years old graphics, it's okay, but not good, still. Even the much played CS is far from realistic and the later patches just suck.

MOH:AA (plus addons)
Well a newer engine than HalfLife, but still old and grey. The Addons are nonsense. You pay money for an official addon for maps that are just modified single-player-maps or just User-made!
Basically it's quake3 - same engine, different weapons. Example: You can jump from a church-tower, fire your BAR in fullauto and score a headshot across the level against a moving target. When you hit the ground, you lose 20% of your health....


FarCry - Eye popping Egoshooter - tries to be somewhat better than other games, more realistic. It is not really. The physics engine, the coloring, most objects, the characters and the weapons look like they came from a comic book. It's got easy controls, that may be a plus for a rookie. The AI is nice, but not nicer than most other games, since SinglePlayer is still largely scripted. Stay on one spot and new enemies appear over and over. Move 2 meters and it's all silent.

Return to Castle Wolfenstein
Look at MOHAA - same engine, even worse realism and crappy online play. The players look just - ridiculous.

Call Of Duty
Same as MOHAA. Somewhat more realistic, but only in terms of weapons. You can still jump from a rooftop and survive.... Singleplayer is BADLY scripted. If you play a second time through the campaign, you know where to go and can win the campaign in no time.

UT/UT2003/UT2004
Very nice Ego-shooter. Plain and simple, yet immersive in game depth, if you get into how to use your weaponry. However, it's very fast-paced and you got to learn how to coordinate movement and aim. Many gametypes in the box, great maps.

Soldner Of Fortune
Realsim, well, okay =). Maps - very artificial, especially MP-Maps.

Halo
Get a PS2 to play HALO. For PC, it's just years behind. Same features as UT2004 and I'd recommend the latter all the way. Halo still is largely single-player and the MP is very unbalanced.

GhostRecon
An older UT-Engine. Rather nice, especially Multiplayer. The maps reach from nice wilderness to intense urban war. I personally don't like the game, most of all because there are no visible weapons. You simply got a crosshair all over the screen. Anybody not using a Sniper-Rifle will lose.

Rainbow6 - RavenShield
Newer UT-Engine. Very realistic, very good. The game is rather adjustable in terms of skill, but you still gotta learn how to use the different controlls. You can use the controlls to do a lot of things and use complex tactics, but you gotta work into them. Very large choice of equipment with modable weapons and stuff!
In singleplayer you can plan your engagement and are in controll over up to three different teams, made up of AI-collegues.
Online-playing is nice, but get's on your nerves after a while - most play RVS like Quake or CS - "Team? What Team?"

AmericasArmy
Say what you want against the source of this game. So far, it is the closest to a combat-simulation and it's for free! It's a bit easier to control as RavenShield, but still has loads of goodies and game-depth.
It is updated about every 4-6 month, now, with new maps and many additional goodies - and all for free, to say it again. It still uses UT2003's engine, but will be converted to UT2004!
Big minus here is the missing single-player capability. You can load the maps and fool around, but you're alone. It's a very good game for LANs, though!

OperationFlashpoint
Still the game that is closest to the virtual battlefield. The controlls of the planes, helos and vehicles are very much like a sim. There are many updates and even more addons available and still a vivid community. It's a bit old, though, not really with modern graphics and it still got a few problems, especially the very non-intuitive menues... OFP2 is due to be released in 6 to 10 month - hopefully.......
The SP campaign is very nice and very enjoyable.

BF1942/BFV
BFV is basically the same as BF1942. It just got more bugs than BF1942, but therefore it got less maps. Gameplay has the same problem as CS. Want's to be tactical and realistic, but no matter with whom you play it, it's just a deathmatch with tanks and planes. However, BF:V is a bit slower paced than BF1942.

Hope it helps.

You mention 'jaw dropping' when you first saw FB, and for the first week it probably just kept on dropping time after time! That was my reaction too, and a very rare occurance. Only one other game has made me do that is....

This is the ninth vote for Flashpoint GOTY edition with the 1.96beta upgrade. The mods I have let me play on the SES squad server. These mods are chosen because they are great mods and the least buggy/conflicting; SES pack5.0, BAS pack, FDF 1.2 and Lluama's hi-res sky mod.
There are still hundreds of people playing online regularly. Alot of servers run without any mods, but some good squad servers do run with mods; you need to download the mods that the server uses. I would pick a good modified server and stick to it rather than jump from server to server, downloading loads of mods which may make your game unstable.

As Flashpoint is 3 years old now, you should be able to find it for about 13 Euros (about 8 or 14$ I think). Note that the copyright and online-play protection works; you need an original disc. Don't download this game; it may work initially, but it will cause you grief trying to upgrade it or playing online, and the FADE protection will probably kick-in at some point anyway.

The only two games I have on my drive now are FB Aces and Flashpoint. They are the only ones I haven't got bored with.

After it was refeuled i climbed in.With many manipulations the mechcanics started the turbines.I followed their actions with the greatest of interest.The first one started quite easily.the second caught fire.In no time the whole engine was on fire.Luckily as a fighter pilot i was used to getting quickly out of the cockpit.The fire was quickly put out.The second plane caused no trouble - Adolf Galland (first time in a ME262)

And where lies the sense in that? So we can abandon all medical teams?!?


Soldner is a very promising game. The demo available is from an early beta stage. One can only imagine what was improved in the 2 1/2 month work after the demo was taken from the process!

I play Unreal Tournyment a lot online too and this sounds very exciting. The Onslaught maps have got me hooked. I'll be looking for this product too.

It is a Eastern Front, WW2 realism mod. No fast running, hopping stuff. You don't even have a crosshair while firing from the hip, you need to bring up your sights to aim.

For one you can probably pick up for 5 dollers, try Deus Ex (the first one)

Half-Life 2 should come out in the next five years or so, and it looks great. Lots of choices.
