Each battle takes place on one of several maps located in a variety of places and famous battlefields in all of the major theaters of World War II: the Pacific, European, North African, Eastern, and Italian Fronts. Combat is always fought between the Axis Powers and the Allies.

The maps in Battlefield 1942 are based on real battles and are somewhat realistically portrayed.This game is able to take advantage of hyper-threaded or dual-core CPUs.
