Battlefield 2
(hx) 01:49 PM EDT - Jul,02 2005

Developed by Digital Illusions, Battlefield 2 is the sequel to the highly successful Battlefield 1942 and Battlefield: Vietnam. Whereas the Vietnam game was developed by DICE Canada, Battlefield 2 is the home-brewed product of the original Swedish team. Unlike Battlefield 1942, which became tremendously popular thanks to its combination of fast action and WWII vehicles, and Battlefield Vietnam which covered a controversial conflict in American history, Battlefield 2 takes place in a fictitious near-future conflict and features all-new weapons and all-new vehicles! In the game you can choose to fight for one of three military superpowers: the United States, the Chinese, or the newly formed Middle East Coalition. Regions of conflict span areas of China and the Middle East. Regarding advantages, each side have the particular technology and weaponry appropriate to their nationality.

Battlefield 2 features 12 maps (there are three versions of each - for 16, 32 and 64 players) upon release, which includes locations such as power plants, oil fields, mines, dams, harbors, farms, islands, cities, and more. The difference between 16 and 32-player fields is pretty huge. Maps set to 16 cut the size of the combat zone down considerably to allow players to find each other quickly and fight over a small number of total capture points. The differences between the 32 and 64 player maps can be less dramatic. Unlike the previous Battlefield titles, the maps can get quite complicated, so you'll need to spend some time learning the ins and outs and quirks of each location. But once you do get to learn the maps, there's a particular brilliance in the design.

The core game play of Battlefield 2 remains the same as the previous games. Two teams face off over a large map containing various bases / spawn points. Each side tries to capture and defend as many bases as possible. You spawn as infantry of several kinds of classes (assault, sniper, spec ops, engineer, medic, support, or anti-tank classes), and can continue as infantry or find a vehicle to use. Balance between classes is so good that no one class is totally at the mercy of another. Even a mediocre player has a good chance of taking out any opponent regardless of what class either plays.

There are over thirty new vehicles for Battlefield 2. You can jump into the seats of land, air, and sea vehicles including tanks, helicopters, jet aircraft and light overboard motor boats. Jets are fairly difficult to learn how to fly (you will probably need a joystick), especially if there's a little lag in the game. Helicopters, on the other hand, are a joy to fly, and are very fun. Like the past games vehicles are an important part of the game, but they do not dominate the game. Driving directly into an enemy base might seem like a good way to capture it but if you're alone you won't last long :)

Each side can have their team broken down into squads. Each squad consists of a squad leader and up to 5 squad members. The squad leader acts as a mobile spawn point and has the ability to set waypoints and request assistance from the Commander. I would say that the commander option is the most dramatic change in the game. Commanders must "apply" for the position in-game, and, when elected, these players do actively participate in the battle, and can be killed, however the commander has a base where he can avoid being killed. Commanders have four primary abilities: satellite scan, artillery strikes, Predator UAV recon, and supply drops, which can be eliminated if the opposition destroys certain installations, and communicating orders to squad leaders via VOIP. Another great part of Battlefield 2 is about the possibility of advancing the ranks. If you play the servers officially equipped with the ranking system you are able to watch your stats in the game menu tab "BFHQ". This allows you to build up a history with your player, unlock new weapons, and earn various rewards.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention the singleplayer mode. Of course, Battlefield 2 also contains a singleplayer section that allows you to advance through the games many maps, alongside and against computer controlled players. The bots are a hundred times better than they were in Battlefield 1942, but you can only have a maximum of 8 on each team. The only reason to play singleplayer is to learn the maps before you play online. So, if you're looking to buy this game to play it away from an internet connection, forget it! This game was meant to be played online.

Probably my biggest complaint is the steep hardware requirements. You'll need a beefy video card: the minimum is a GeForce FX 5700 or a Radeon 8500. GeForce 4's are officially obsolete. And if you don't have a gig of RAM yet, you'll need to get on the stick. If you don't have a good amount of RAM and a decent video card, you'll really have to drop the detail to get the game to run smoothly.

Despite some serious issues with the internet play, some bugs and problems, and long loading times, Battlefield 2 is an awesome game that you should definitely buy if you have the right computer for it. And if you don't have the computer for it, upgrade your old one so you can play this game! :)

Truely runs great with a powerful system

thejunglegod(03:40 PM EDT - Jul,02 2005 )
this game is crap.you need to be Bill Gates o be able to afford a pc with such high requirements.Whats the freaking use of tweaking all the graphics so high anyway?i know that things are supposed to look real et al but look at the screenshots.it still looks like a game to me.man i dont want to pay a bomb for graphic cards and a ram.have 768mb ram and i dont wanna upgrade it anymore cos half of it just never gets used up unless of course if u r playing battlefield 2.i dont want it man.....or simply i cant afford it.

Stumpus(03:57 PM EDT - Jul,02 2005 )
The graphics are waste on system resources in this type of game anyway.
I play it full, but it's pointless since it's played like Quake! Everyone just runs around shooting anything.

1Gig of *fast* RAM is what you should have now if your a power gamer, sadly it's more about textures these days than gameplay.... Maybe best getting a next gen console -no upgrade required! :wink:

Ozieo(04:19 PM EDT - Jul,02 2005 )
I can't understand why people give such a brainless game such a high score. BTW The graphics look too sharp and thus not realistic at all.

tub0rg(10:09 PM EDT - Jul,02 2005 )
i agree the scores for this one are much to high, they still havent adressed a lot of the issues the design brings with it, eg baseraping vehicle camping, people who hide in the montains by ure base with a sniper, even though thats harder now with the shity sniper guns :)
i see a lot of improvment compared to bf vietnam but pushing out a game all 2 years isnt helping the already small community of bf. and i still like desert combat more then this one.

Chode(10:42 PM EDT - Jul,02 2005 )
Not to mention EA's "anti-mod" sentiment against anyone serving a modified version of the game. Which is truly hypocritical, considering that this game is just taken from A MOD of the earlier game.

And what they did to Trauma Studios (original developers of Desert Combat) is even worse. After buying them out (and giving them jobs in Dice studios New York), they shut down Dice Studios New York office...hence stealing Trauma's idea then throwing them out on their ass.

This game rocks man! The gfx are amazing on FULL detail and the game unbelievably kicks bf1942 butt totally. They did a great job even if the game still sports EA's name...I love people who whine about base campers. In war, are you gonna whine and complain when the enemy sneaks into your base? Get a clue. Even more funny is the servers that actually state in the MOTD no base camping.. oh really? so how do we capture the flag? Base raping vehicle stealing? Oh yes, I must remember when I am on foot and make it to the enemy base to kill my ENEMY that I should leave their vehicles alone! omfg... How much you wanna bet all the complainers here are tired of being owned... Stumpus, come on man...BF2 is a team game..Do you expect any and every joe to cover your back? Get a teammate then u got teamplay..Yes there's a lot of tourists out to try anything and everything, but I have been on many servers where I had people assisting and listening to the one barking out orders. As for your claim of BF2 wasting system resources. Have to agree with ya.. had same problem on demo.. Game chews up lots of ram and there is a possibility there is a memory leak like in the demo.. My hard drive goes nuts for a full minute when I exit the game.. Couple of patches are we're good to go I think...I was really impressed that they didn't cut the graphics in the game like that POS called Brothers in Arms I wasted my money on for another rehash of COD... COD2 I am waiting to see if the graphics in the actual game will live up to those I saw in screenshots. Look just too impressive.

Oh and I'm totally behind game developers dropping support for old cards! It's about F'ing time! If ur too cheap to upgrade, go get a console or something. Don't belly ache they aren't supporting your 4 year old card.

tub0rg(02:37 PM EDT - Jul,05 2005 )
i dont give a flying fuck about gfx especially in an mp game, and its nice if you dont mind base camping because it so real, but i dont care for reallity either if its sacrifices gameplay, spawning in your base and being shot by a tank in half a second maybe more real (despite the fact that you dont spawn in a real war and you never ever respawn >P) but it just aint fun cause i couldnt have done anything about it. the only thing i enjoyed in the bf2 demo was the su and bombing people, and even though it was nice for me to bomb thoose poor bastards to hell while not getting shot down in like 90 minutes it wasent for them. i dont like the gameplay on foot and in tanks and the much much smaller view distance is crappy too, the commander thing is surly a good thing for clans and team play i dont like the idea anyway, i would have cut the gfx and give every one the vehicle he liked, like in dc no flyzone the engine and netcode of 1942 were defenetly capable of it. its nice for you if you like bf2 i dont a lot of people here dont and i doubt that the comunity will stay as bis as the roughly 6000 bf2 servers it has now.
about the gf4 thing i guess people are pissed off because the card is more then capable to render bf2 actually a lot of gf4600 cards have roughly twice the power of an 5200 but are only left out because of the shaders wich would be simple to fix but it wasnt done. and your attitude man gees u got some serious issue's. :)

i would give this 8.5/10 (or 85 %) The gfx is the rocksors, the sound is awesome, nice music, great gameplay online, but i hate spawntime (which is usually 15 s) and some maps are too fucking big. i want 64 players on a 16 player map. (or is that already possible? *noob*)
i enjoy the shooting on foot and the varieties (sp??) of weapons and gear, though it's pretty boring after a while to fly copter, plane and drive tanks. if you meet one tank, you're helpless if you not anti-tank or have a nearby missile launcher. :P
