IMG today has posted a hands-on preview of Battlefield 1942: Deluxe Edition based on a recent beta. The long-awaited first-person WW II shooter from Aspyr Media is currently at the final candidate stage and should be going gold soon.

Here's a clip from the preview:.

And if you’re interested in checking out all the options available to you, the game utilizes an efficient interface utilizing tabs to navigate through the different menus. There are the typical choices of options and configurations: video, sound, network connection, controls, and so on. What is unique in BF1942’s case is that the developers have tossed aside technical jargon, it seems, for the sake of a more plain-English user experience. For example, in video options there are no labels like “trilinear filtering” or “FSAA shading.” This may not appeal to those who like to have access to the precise technical specifications in their games. But, again, for folks who like to have things broken down in plain English, BF1942 accommodates.
To check out the entire preview, please follow the link below.

The IMG Store is currently taking pre-orders for Battlefield 1942: Deluxe Edition. It is available for $48.99. If you are a MacGames DVD Subscriber or IMG Pro subscriber, you can pre-order it at a discount for $44.99.
