I enjoyed this game. It's BF Lite. Once everybody has it, we should schedule a 1943 night. One thing, tho: I went back in a few months ago and the lag was so bad it was unplayable -- like they left on one rickety server for the people who had nothing else to play.

The BF1943 air planes are a great way to practice for BF3. I just played some 1943 last night and the controls are exactly the same. The planes are a little bit slower and you start with BOMBS! So much fun to dive bomb and get a tank :evil:

BF1943 was a fantastic game for the $15 it cost back when it first came out. It helped fill the gap between the BFBC1 and BFBC2 releases. Not really sure how relevant it is with BF3 being all new and shiny. I still have it installed, willing to play it anytime you guys want a throwback night. It's sort of like BF-Light. Three maps +1 air-only map, all Conquest if I remember correctly. Fewer kits and weapon choices, very basic stuff. Easy game to just pick up and play without all the overhead of massive unlocks and loadout choices.
