Hands On Preview: Battlefield 1943

by Rick Wallace

The long awaited XBLA title “Battlefield 1943”  hits the marketplace on July 8th, 2009. Yes, I said its an Xbox Live Arcade title. That is a fairly substantial statement given what you are getting and the graphical presentation of the game. This has to be one of these best graphical games to date on the Arcade in my opinion, and while it may be pretty to look at you'll also get all the Battlefield action you have come to know and love. We have had the chance to play the pre release build of the game at E3 and I have to say that BF1943 is going to deliver in gameplay, sound and graphics like no arcade game has ever done before.

So if you are one of the hundreds of thousands downloading this game near its launch, you'll initially get 3 maps to play on. They are GuadalCanal,  Iwo Jima, and Wake Island. EA and DICE decided to add a 4th map but that is only unlockable after 43,000,000 community kills and its a race once the game launches to see if the 360 community or the PS3 community unlocks it first. Once that goal is achieved, you'll get a 4th map named Coral Reef.
