This game plays a HUGE role in my love for FPS Gaming, spent over 550 hours on my main account and 250+ of that was Sniping. All in all I've played countless hours of this game and BF2142 and I don't think any Battlefield or shooter alike has even come close to the memories I've racked up on BF2. Shame they shut down the servers for it and 2142 years ago, but they're are still ways to play online with a small dedicated community that BF2 STILL has. Long live BF2!

This game was the ♥♥♥♥ a very long time ago. I played the demo all day. Unforunately GameSpy is dead but people have resurrected the game as its still widely played and beloved. I decided to give the Gamespy-free mod a go and encountered some issues, which were rectified by some Googling. I can no longer play this game through Steam, although I use my steam game files for it. Pretty weird, but at least it works.

Do not buy this game - get it for free.

A Great game, but the servers have been shut down.

I can't recommend this game to the common consumer, but to anyone semi-technical out there, there are unofficial servers you can play on.

I really enjoyed this game and the time I was able to spend with it. I won't give an in-depth review because thanks to EA my point is basically null and void. It's a shame gamespy shut down. The community was great and it's still out there.

As for the project reality mod, I appreciate what they are doing, but please don't make me torrent the files. Put it up on steam or make a zip file on the website. I know this is a monumental task, but I hope you guys get the support you need to be able to do something like this.

As for Battlefield 2, it is worth the time and money if the multiplayer ever gets back up. I would very much recommend this game to anyone who likes large-scale shooters.

The game that started it all. But it took Battfield 1942 and Vietnam to get there (both interesting games in their own right as well). Much like Relic had to make Dawn of War before they got to Company of Heroes. You can still pick this up through Amazon and in second hand game bins so I'm not going to recommend legally dubious free downloads out there, even if its not for sale on Steam at the moment. It's a mystery that maybe only EA/DICE knows why they departed from the Battlefield formulae and basically trashed a recipe that had created something unique in later releases. But, frankly, *WHO CARES* ! Battlefield 2 is really still very much alive with releases still coming out from mods like Forgotten Hope - http://forgottenhope.warumdarum.de/ - and Project Reality - http://realitymod.com/ - that are both total conversions. If you still like the vanilla game play then there's plenty of player made levels out there, and even if you can't find a server then Battlefield 2 still packs a mean game in there thanks to its (still very advanced) AI bots. AI game modes can include Coop so you play with a few friends with bots included. Further Coop/SP stuff can be found here - http://battlefieldsingleplayer.com ... So still after all these years Battefield 2 could teach a lot to new game designers. I was reading another comment that pointed out that the commander mode is aimed at RTS players and it struck me that BF2 is almost a weird RTS hybrid, a bit like a Company of Heroes RTS where all those little soldiers can be played with human players. But whatever it is BF2 never fails to bring me that "immersion" effect where I feel like I'm in a situation fighting for my life rather than in a video game.

Once one of the greatest FPS experiences, but only in its time.

Now - with the removal of multiplayer server support - Battlefield 2 is sadly dead and buried.

Playing against bots is dull and even with mods the gameplay, visuals, sound and overall feel of the game are dated.
Multiplayer was what made the game what it was, and without it, Battlefield 2 will fade away.

Some of you may still be interested to get the game if you get it for cheap, since it is still quite an enjoyable nostalgia bomb. But buying it expecting to have a fulfilling experience may be too great a stretch even for the most bored individuals.

***Edit - This review is based on me playing the game for the first time - I purchased it before it was taken from the steam store but had not played it until the date of this review****

It’s like finding a corpse!

For the most part the online aspect of game is dead. Technically there are mods, community servers and LANs which can potentially allow play with others, but EA ceased official online support a couple of years ago.

Single player offers nothing essentially. There is no campaign. You are dropped into a map with bots filling the roles of other players and team based objectives to complete, such as securing points.

Other than a bare loading screen description about what forces are battling and why – there isn’t any real narrative or driving story. The match ends when points happen.

I realise that BF2 is primarily a multiplayer game but even Unreal Tournament had a contest around which to frame it’s bot matches – something that could be progressed.

Those 23 minutes of play had some tense moments, frustrations and satisfactions but since your AI teammates are morons, and your respawn points miles from the action (with no intelligent friends to pick you up in a vehicle), there is a lot of nothing happening as most of the time is spent running with just the sound of wind to keep you company.

This game has a bit of a legacy so I’m sure that the weapons and classes are balanced, that strategies and command centres are well designed, and blah blah blah… it no longer matters. There’s just no one there to take advantage of these systems and the game can no longer be played as it was originally intended. It’s a long abandoned, malfunctioning playground now.

Battlefield 2 isn’t even on sale any more. So this ‘review’ is just for the very specific people in my position – those who have the game on their list and are wondering if there is anything worth their time.

There isn’t.

First of all, i tried to buy this game for many years but unffortunaly it is always at 50% when it goes on sale. I don't know if it is an "EA Games" thing but 50% for a game with multiplayer without multiplayer it's simply not enough. After the last update the AI is broken and now you can't get "air drops" or "artillery" support if you are not the commander and it is impossible to undo this changes. You can't unlock all the weapons since you can't play in the multiplayer servers and you can't upgrade your ranking.

So why do i still bother in giving this game a thumbs up?

This game was a part of my childhood, and maybe i am just being nostalgic, but i always found out "Battlefield 2" pretty great. We're in 2016 and it will never be the best game in the world but there was a time when it was for me. I just ask the developers to fix the AI or at least undo the changes so i can play the single-player on Steam just like the old times.

One of the classics (if not 'the' classic) in the BF series is definitely BF2. A little humble poll I made showed that BF2 is still close to the hearts of many, regardless if they are still playing it or not (please do vote your choice too!):

http://vote.pollcode.com/74851954

BF2's 'classic BF' gameplay set the precedence for later games in the franchise: BF 2142, BF BC2, BF3, BF4 & BF Hardline (including the now extinct free-to-play BF Play4Free and BF Heroes).

The BF2 weapons/physics is probably the most different than any other FPS. There is very little ‘visual’ recoil but the bullet deviation is more exaggerated than any FPS that I’ve played. There are hit boxes/hit detection problems, movement feels clunky etc etc (and the list goes on and on). The weapon handling is the hardest of all BFs, and also when compared to other FPSs that I play (CS/COD/ARMA franchises etc). It is not impossible to overcome the many problems to perform in-game, but it requires a steeper and longer learning curve.

Nevertheless, after describing the long list of problems above, the times when I manage to overcome all these obstacles and land kills -> the ‘high’ that I get can’t be matched by any other game.

I have about 20 FPS games (BF,COD,CS, ARMA series etc etc), and have tried new ones like BF Hardline, COD AW, COD BO3 etc, and while they are fun, the movement/weapon physics don't really feel that significantly different from each other.
The only game which movement/weapon physics feels different than the others, fresh, and stands in its own category is ironically this 10 year old game: BF2.

I played back to back BF1942, BFV, BF2, BF2142, BFBC2, BF3 and BF4 -> and personally, the hardest game for me to stop playing is BF2.

The graphics is 10 years old. But personally, I like games to look ‘realistic enough’ but don't care at all about picturesque graphics quality in today's games (especially to the extent of requiring and wasting CPU & GPU power).
Gameplay is most important, but graphics much less when determining what is fun - proof: CS 1.6 is still one of the most popular FPSs today and has many times more players than many latest pretty FPSs.

Unlike all BF games from BFBC2 onwards, BF2 has a singleplayer mode, where instead of a campaign, you can play with bots in a multiplayer setting. Any idiot knows that there is no way any bots/AI no matter how good can match human opponents, nevertheless, it is still a fun option to have especially when the internet is down.
There are tons of mods available for BF2 which gives massive amount of gameplay options and also different games. For instance, the following link show more than 200 mods available:

http://www.moddb.com/games/battlefield-2/mods

Some mods are very much more well known than others: Project Reality (which has become a standalone game), AIX 2.0, Forgotten Hope (WW2 setting), Project Alpha, and the list goes on and on. There is also a website offering advice and mods targeted on only the singleplayer aspect of the game:

http://www.battlefieldsingleplayer.com/

BF2 used to run on the Gamespy network, and since the Gamespy shut down in 2014, the BF2 community has created its own network to revive the multiplayer aspect of the game.
Either if you are revisiting a game you once played, or even a new player curious to check out why some people remain hardcore fans of the game, it is very easy to get into the BF2 action, just visit:

http://battlelog.co/

http://battlelog.co/ is a one-stop center for all your BF2 needs: multiplayer network, files, patches, technical advice, a close-knit community etc. etc.

See you in the battlefield soldier :)

After playing this game since the day of the release, the demo, and the steam version, I would like to make a true, honest review after 11 years of playing this game.

Overview
This game is my favorite game of all time. With upwards of 1500 hours on this game since the demo and full game before Steam, I have yet to say any other game I have ever played comes even close to beating this game. The vehicular warfare, the infantry warfare, and the air warfare is all so smooth, and well flowing that it allows all three of those to come together in a nice combined arms to capture and control flags to win the game.

Groundbreaking Features
  • Squads: Squads implement an entire new flow of gameplay PIONEERED by this game. The ability to spawn on the squad leader, and work together as a small team allows for amazing possibilities to take flags and objectives.

  • Commander: The commander position in this game, I feel personally, has always been aimed towards RTS players. The commander has a DIRECT outcome on the game, and has power to call in supplies, vehicle drops, and even full blown artillery strikes on enemy hardpoints to allow squads to advance.

  • Kits: Kits have always been big in the Battlefield franchise, but this game was when I felt it truly started to show. The addition of the Medic, Support, and Engineer has added an entire new, dynamic gameplay mechanic that allows players to choose what they would like to do in the battlefield.

  • Graphics: The graphics made a GIANT leap from the old, worn down Battlefield: Vietnam graphics, to groundbreaking HD gameplay that immersed players more than ever before.

To play this game now, for absolutely free, visit here to get straight into the action!

I'll see you on the Battlefield!
