Battlefield 1942: The Road to Rome received "favorable" reviews according to the review aggregation website Metacritic.[1] What was criticized was the lack of new multiplayer modes, lack of new weapons, (having only the Breda 30 for the Italians and the Sten Mk.II for the British and French), and no stability increases. A favored feature were the map designs.[8]
