Fact of the matter is, there is no other shooter out there that can give you the same experience that BF2 gives you when it's working... it's a one of a kind. To the person that said "pedestrian shooters".... well, I think that BF2 is far from pedestrian, when MOHAA came out, it was an awesome experience as well. EA makes some pretty cool games... do they fuck up from time to time? Sure...
What do you mean you can't get the same experience with another game that BF2 gives you?
I mean seriously, other than better graphics and modern vehicles/guns this is basicly BF1942 or BFVietnam reskinned. There are no huge innovations in gameplay here.
It is the same tired capture-n-hold system that gets boring as hell after a couple of maps. There is no real tactical gameplay in BF2, no real objective to fight over other than who can camp a flag point the longest without getting carpet bombed. Wow, I don't recall the last time I saw a more tactical game, oh wait yes I do...Enemy Territory which was free and actually had objective-based gameplay.
But don't worry, in a year or so they will release a press statement saying how they are creating BF3 that will look to the future of modern warfare and add a few more vehicles and some energy weapons, but don't worry you will still run around trying to stand as close to a flag as possible as your only objective.This comment was edited on Jul 26, 09:43.
Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishfull thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms.
