Gameplay: This is probably the
best BF: 1942 mod out yet. 1, there is more of a selection of kits than in BF: 1942. Between the Coalition and the opposition,
the weapons are mostly evenly balanced. The Modern weapons handle better than the World War 2 counterparts. There are also
a slew of new vehicles, aircraft, and helicopters. Like I said, they all fair better than the WW2 counterparts (except for
the choppers). Unlike most of the other mods, this can be played with almost all single player maps (the ones that don’t
work are The battle of Britain and Market Garden). The online experience is awesome too. Its basically the same, but the players
are much better, and harder. One problem is that the mod lags more than the original game. Also, is single player, the AI
of you opponents sometimes are stupid (they have a tank and they just sit at the main base.).But other than that, the game
play is awesome.
Controls: The controls are basically
the same as BF: 1942. Helicopters have their own controls that YOU have to figure out! I personally have a lot of trouble
piloting a Chopper, I see other people do it very well, but it should give you some instruction.
Bonus Points: The game sounds
are completely different than the original game. from the gunfire, to the commands, it was good. Also, they had to do a whole
new animation for reloading the grenade launcher. Very impressive
In conclusion, Desert combat
is a kick ass mod with all the modern weaponry. This is a mod that will keep you busy for a long time. If you are bored of
BF: 1942, you HAVE to play this!
