best arcade game ever?
i'm interested to see if anyone also thinks this?
i know its more expensive than most but i also have spent a lot more time on it than most of my retail games for 4 times the price. i hope more devs go down the budget arcade route. :P

Expensive? Seriously?

I sure as hell don't want 1200 points to become a standard, but it's just 15 bucks, dude.

I keep thinking that 1943 really feels like the multiplayer component of a full-fledged game, just without the single-player content. However, I don't think 3 maps really cuts it, and limiting Air Superiority to a single map (which in turn is only playable in Air Superiority) was a terrible idea. At least there are no radio towers, I guess...People seem unable to avoid those.

I've been told that these are just gussied-up 1942 maps, and if so, it's a real let-down that there are so few maps. I mean, they're still damn fun maps, but just imagine added quantity with the same level of quality. It's drool-inducing.

At the very least I have faith that Dice will release any future content for free, as that's what Bad Company was all about.

I don't think 1200 points is that expensive for a game like this. I would of been more put off if it was like 1600. As for being the best game on the arcade, is there anything better? I cant think of anything better. so yes, it probably is the best XBLA game.

Glad to see some like minded folk!

I agree that its the best XBLA game available right now, 1200 points or not, its £10 ($15) for virtually a full game... 12 per Team, Multiple vehicles, Sprawling Maps (compared to CoD, GoW etc)

I can't see how any other current arcade game can match up & hopefully it will raise the bar for future XBLA titles!... I'd be surprised if they didnt release some kind of DLC for this with new maps. DICE are usually quite community driven..

Hands down the best arcade game. Price is high for the arcade version, but well worth it, it's like its breaking bank accounts here. They really need more maps and hopefully soon. It is sad to say that the best game out right now is an arcade game.

DLC will defo come sooner rather than later. i would bet my house on it. How about some night maps for this. with tracer fire etc. would be awesome.

I'd also be surprised if it didn't win some kind of an award...DICE pushed boundries bringing us this as an XBLA game.

It went straight to the top of the LIVE Activity chart on MajorNelson.com & I think its been there for 2 weeks straight!

I would have to say this is the best arcade game thats out at the moment and seeing it be this way for a while.

It certainly is an amazing game, but I am absolutely in love with Splosion Man at the moment. For $10 I can get almost as much playtime out of it as I have already out of Battlefield (I'm rank 38 or something, I forget). We'll see though, there's some really great looking aracade games coming out this year.

Splosion man gets so dull, its the same stuff over and over again. + It gets freakishly hard. ( I know, every single arcade game is over the bar hard )

Annyway: Yes, BF1943 is the best arcade game ever to grace to the xbox 360. Its needs a couple of fixes, tough.

It just may be, but not for long, I think when the original Call of Duty comes out for Arcade, THAT will be the best Arcade game of all time.

Its my 2nd favorite arcade game. First would come Castle Crashers, as it has single and multiplayer with over a dozen playable characters. Battlefield is really good, but it does get boring after a while.

I'd probably say that this game would have to be my favorite arcade title. It's really fun but I agree that they could have added a few more maps. I'm not sure why I hadn't bought this game sooner?

BF 1943 is probably the best arcade out right now, IMO.

Battlefield 1943 > mvcrapcom 2. :)

And yes, I played that in the arcades, and that was a snore fest.


Anyways, Battlefield 1943, best arcade game of the year, EVER, nothing can touch it or hold a candle to it. :)

What other MP Arcade game have you seen players reach 43 million kills in just 5 days?

I downloaded the demo for that game and promptly deleted it. It may be fun to people into that kind of beat-em-up game but there's only so much you can do.

The problem is that you downloaded the demo. That was one of the lamest demos ever; it by no means actually did the game justice. You'd be surprised at how much you really CAN do in that game, what with all the different characters, each with their own abilities, not to mention the ridiculously varied levels/enemies. I'm not telling you to go buy it, but it's definitely worth a second look if any of your friends have the full game.

I agree with you on this one. In my opinion Castle Crashers and Battlefield 43 are the best arcade games up to date. Sure the whole multiplayer concept of BF is better, but Castle Crashers was sooo much fun :D.
I also think DICE should throw in some extra maps, but 1200 MSPoints is still not expensive..

One of the best arcade game, so far. Trials HD and The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition are two other favorites.

An addon to 1943 would be appriciated. With more achievements, naturally.

Great gameplay and fun too. Plus it shows that a Live arcade game can be more than a updated arcade classic. This opens the doors for developers, this game sold thru the rough. Make it fun, make it so you and all your friends can play and make it cheap. Good times.

Yes I know some of you kids are jobless or tight asses but in my opion, 1200 pts for this game is a steal. Great buy. Bring on the DLC, I'll pay for maps.

Probably Battlefield considering its an fps

Best arcade ever? Yes. Wish they would add some DLC to it though, even if it didn't give achievements I love this game, however a 50G achievement for getting the max rank would be cool.

I haven't played 1943 for ages now kinda got bored with the same maps,I'd have to say trials hd is the best,endless fun great use of the leaderboards and the level editor is freakishly good,hopefully they bring out more maps for 1943

For my feeling its an arcade game that's owns but i think that the Call of Duty arcade game much better.

While I think this game is great, I don't think it's the best (That has to be Cloning Clyde!!!!)

I got this on release, but with Summer of Arcade just around the corner from this game's release, and 1 Vs 100 launching too, it kinda got lost in all the new stuff. Recently, I've decided to get back into it and give it the more time the game deserves, but which I have yet to give it.

I don't mind if I suck, and all the only people still playing are like super-good at it, because generally, it's a good game to play however good you are.

Got this today for 560MSP as part of the Holiday Deals. I have to say, along with Shadow Complex, it's rapidly turning into one of my favourite arcade games. It's so addictive!

This game was a steal at the holiday deal price so I picked it up, damn glad I did as this is one of the most addictive arcade games I have and it's even better then half the full fledged retail games I have. Only downside is that there are only 4 maps total and one is limited to only being played in air superiority. But other than that it's fucking awesome!

I enjoyed it but i prefer Trials HD

01-06-2010, 06:38 PM
the thing is this game was only developed as the developers were mucking around with the old maps and came up with the idea. when you consider its a full 3d arcade game which only costs 1200 MSP i think its pretty gd. it definately beats bad company 1 for amount of fun. anyway b company 2 soon. thats easily gonna beat cod!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NO...1943 is not the best arcade game in my opinion....Bionic Commando: Rearmed holds that right in my heart...

Also IMO...anyone who says 1943 is the best is a total FPS fanboy...seriously, the most played games of 2009 were all FPS....1.HALO 3, 2.COD WOW, 3.COD 4, 4.COD MW...and the arcade side of it had 1943 at the top..

Is 1943 the best arcade game....no...do we have too many FPS fanboys in the world...yes

Id say its my favourite arcade game so far yes! Along with Geometry wars 2!

HughJazz
01-13-2010, 10:36 PM
I'd say it's a toss-up between this and Carcassonne. The quality of BF43 is much better than most so it warrants the price tag. Plus I like that all 200 points are actually possible to get unlike games like Hexic and Geometry Wars.

This game is boring, laggy, and matches take way too long to compete. I dont know if its the lag or a horrible port from the PC, but this game has awful shooting/aiming. It's more like getting lucky while aiming at someone. I bought this game at 50% off and im sure glad i didnt waste 15 dollars on it! I know a lot of you guys like it but its def not the best arcade game its more of an advertisement for the new bad company game to come out. Its so boring that I watch movies while spamming A button to complete the matches.

To give a hint at what games i love for multiplayer

Red Faction GW
Halo 3
Modern Warfare 2

battlefield bad company was okay. love the part where if you get booted from a game or get disconnected, all the games you played (in one case it was 15) suddenly dont get counted for playing. 4 hours straight and it didnt get counted cause I got disconnected WOW!
