Talking Desert island WWII FPS

The rules are simple. You are stranded on a hypothetical desert island, with you you can take one WWII-based FPS. Any platform.

And yes, assuming the island has the appropriate electricity outputs .


I'd take Hidden and Dangerous 2.

Certainly not a perfect game, it was riddled with bugs and multiplayer was horribly generic. Yet it had a hell of a lot of replay value for me.

No way I take H&D2 It is way too frustrating.
Hmm. CoD2 or MoHA. But those are way to short. Maybe IL-2 ?

Assuming the island has electricity, I'd bring "pull the computer into the bathtub".

Probably COD2.

I would probably take H&D 2. That game was awesome and I wish they would make a H&D 3 with better graphics.

My second choice if I had internet on that island would be Forgotten Hope mod for BF1942. If it was 3 years from now then the Forgotten Hope 2 mod hehe!

Assuming they had the net on the island, i'd take CoD2 with me, but download steam and start getting games off there.

BF1942

Or maybe Red Orchestra.

Both are great games with a ton of replayability, even with bots.
