Desert Combat Review

Battlefield is one of the best wide scale war franchises out there, but the modern ones are streamlined enough to lack the special janky spark that made it popular in the first place. Battlefield 1942 is remember incredibly fondly by all who played it, but there was one special mod that completely reimagined it and made it play fantastically - Desert Combat.

To install Desert Combat, make sure you have Battlefield 1942 installed. Then, install the 0.7 version, and then the update to final afterwards.

The best thing about this game is how it feels like an all new game, with almost nothing remaining of Battlefield 1942. This mod implements modern fighter jets, tanks, and helicopters that all handle fantastically. They don't handle too realistically, but also don't feel too arcadey at the same time. This game is just complex enough to have depth, yet simple enough to easily jump into.

Every aircraft and ground vehicle feels different and handles differently, which is even more impressive when you consider that this is simply a mod. The gameplay in this game has a similar feel to Counterstrike - not in gameplay, but in how the gameplay works. This mod has incredibly polished mechanics that, while simple on paper, play out in extremely varied ways.

The graphics are a bit dated, but when you have gameplay that feels this smooth, it rarely matters. If you're a fan of just plain ol' good gameplay, then you should definitely give Desert Strike a download. Even through its age, it has a small yet dedicated playerbase.
