For $3.99US on GoG, I'll give it a try. The graphics don't look half bad for a 12 year old game!

Wow. That's really cool. However it's also completely and unexpectedly out of left field.

For a game from 2005, the graphics are actually holding up extremely well. It really looks quite good.

Honestly, I'm more impressed with these graphics here than I am with CoD WWII. I played one round of the beta earlier and dang it looks so bad. I can see what everyone was talking about (not that I was expecting much anyway).

Great job by GOG. What I don't get is why they are giving it away so easily. Their support is second to none but all the dumbtards (99.9%) are gonna be like "OMG valve r so awsum cuz they support ye olde gamez!!!11".

There are so many old games that only run fine or come with nice features because of GOG's effort but the publishers just copy&paste the GOG version to Steam and GOG get zero credit.

WTF? They really are the Ghandis of the gaming business. If I were them I would boast about it and charge fucking Valve/Steam and the publishers through the nose if they wanted to publish my fixed and updated version of their vintage crap.

Those assholes never would have touched the game ever again if not for GOG but then they profit nicely from reinvigorated sales... wake the fuck up, GOG. Communism in Poland is over. Welcome to capitalism. It's OK to make money. Really!

I'll check out what the player numbers are, for 3.99 is's not much of a gamble. I'll say that I'm getting the new SW:BF II on Xbox prooooobably, which is painful, but I want a consistent playerbase. I've always been able to find games on some gamemodes on PC, but most of the time it's been hard to find a game on ANY gamemode, and I'm pretty sick of dealing with that shit.

Unfortunately Gog doesn't put their soul in all games. There are plenty of older games from them which don't run that good on the newest Windows currently selling on their storefront.

But i could agree they do a better job than Steam.

I just picked this up. For $3.99 it's kind of a no-brainer. I used to love the old Battlefield games (1942, Vietnam, etc) and this will do nicely. It even has bots!
