You join us this month in the mid­dle of a fight for the soul of the first-per­son shooter. In the mud­brown cor­ner is Bat­tle­field 1, tak­ing us back to the birth of mod­ern war­fare in the grim trenches of World War I.

From our cover pick you can see that we’re sid­ing with DICE on this one; while I have some reser­va­tions about min­ing the most hor­rific of wars for fun, I’m also tired of zip­ping around fu­tur­is­tic are­nas like some magic gnat-man. Of course, I’m sure I’m only one
