So I finally got around to installing BF:1942, patched it up and installed Battlefield: Pirates today.
What fun! Zipping around in sloops firing broadsides at each other, or manning the shore batteries (cannons, of course) trying to fend off a cutting out expedition (and getting hacked down from behind my a cutlass wielding mad man!).
Honestly I didn’t play for long since my BF 1942 skills are so horribly rusty. I can’t remember any of the basic key commands and I was costing my team in a big way. At this point there’s no single player game available.
So I think I’d best play some straight BF 1942 in single player mode to get the controls down again, then head back for some more Battlefield:Pirates. Well worth a look!
