About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

The WW2 Mod REQUIRES Battlefield Vietnam v1.1 or higher to run.

The WW2 mod is a partial conversion of the original Battlefield 1942 to the updated engine of Battlefield Vietnam. The most popular mapsof the Pacific Theater have been transferred to the new engine.This theater comes to life like never before using the overgrowth and undergrowth that made BFV such a hit. All of the characters, weapons, and vehicles have also been redone to make use of the advanced BFV rendering engine. The original BF1942 content married to the gameplay tweaks introduced in BFV combine to create a whole new Battlefield experience.

Mortars add a new dimension to the maps, but the biggest addition are the new flame throwers. These are devestating close range anti-infantry weapons, best used to clear structures or block paths with a wallof flame. They are very effective against scout cars, but are considerablyless effective against armoured vehicles.

Levels included in the WW2mod:

  • Invasion of the Philippines
  • Iwo Jima
  • Wake Island

The levels contain all the vehicles and weapons included in their BF1942counterparts. All 3 levels are compatible with single-player and Co-Op modes.

The WW2 mod is not compatible with Custom Combat.
