If you’ve been sitting on the fence as to whether Aspyr Media Inc.’s Mac conversion of
Battlefield 1942 Deluxe Edition is worth the money, now you can kick your tires and drive it around the block: On Friday the company posted a playable
single-player demo that will give you a taste of what the full game has to offer.
Battlefield 1942 is a first-person action game set in World War II that’s separated itself from the rest by emphasizing arena-style combat and the ability to operate air, land and sea vehicles. And while the game emphasizes multiplayer combat, it’s not limited only to that, as you’ll find out from the 300MB demo. The full version of the Mac game also includes the Road to Rome expansion pack previously offered as a separate add-on for its PC counterpart. System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.2.8 or later, G4/867MHz or faster, 256MB RAM, 1.6GB hard disk space and ATI Radeon 7500 or Nvidia GeForce2 MX or better 3D graphics with at least 32MB VRAM.
