      Stayed up many many nights playing BF2. My favorite vehicle were the helicopters, specially the Russian. I've played the COD and BFBC and got bored after a few hours of game play.

      Are BF2 servers still up?
      yes they are, the only thing i hate is if you install it with cd you probably gotta get a sizeable update.

      late ninjaedit: yep.. I'm installing BF2 on my work laptop now.

      BF has more realism in the form of bullet drop over distances, having to lead targets, flight times for ammo, etc... It just feels like a more real experience, especially with the ability to demolish buildings.
      since bfbc1 i have not been able to enjoy any other fps game....the gameplay is so awesome and requires actual thought. though i am far from a good player, there is something so awesome about blowing a hole in the side of a building, running in and knifing the guy in there because he was expecting you to run in through the door after him

      Came to post this. My thoughts exactly. Finally, I have something to look forward too. Getting Sick of the CoD franchise. Even between IW and 3arc

      I'm so pumped for this game. I'm going to do everything I can to build a PC that can handle this game at the max. I love everything about the Battlefield series. I played a ton of 2142 for about a year. One thing I would like to see them use is the unlock tree that game used. If you want to be recon, engineer, assault or medic you can pick your unlocks, BC2 did a great job of this as well. I hate the way COD does things.

      I went out and bought BC2 recently, because this game got me excited to play Battlefield again. It made me realize how much I hate the rat race of the COD series. My favorite thing about the battlefield games is the sniping. If I want to go and pitch a tent among some trees on a hill and shoot players in the head I can. When I think of sniping I think of long range shooting and having to adjust for bullet drop or lead them with a shot. There's nothing like dropping a player running out in the open and has no clue wtf just happened. Hell when I run across an open map I'm always wondering if a sniper is watching me. Not non of this quick scoping **** people do in COD.

      I love the destructible environments. Although it's rather annoying when all the buildings on a base are destroyed and you have nowhere to hide while you are trying to cap a flag.

      I never drive planes or fly the helipcopters (I sucked at it), but they make these games awesome. Driving tanks and other ground vehicles usually worked out better for me. Anyone know if they are going to bring commanders back?

      Speaking of 2142 did/does anyone play this? They 1.51 patch came out and there are a few new maps up. I just need to find my install cd back.

      Sorry for the ramble. The wait for this game is going to suck.

      i have 2142 and haven't played in a looooong time. One thing i liked about that game is that infantry had a good chance of doing a lot of damage to tanks/mechs. Every vehicle had a critical point, usually a tiny vent, that allowed a gunner to do damage. I hope they bring this back.

      Kubra Dam better be in there! To this day the best multiplayer map ever, so many memories of countless days and nite in 2006 and 2007 were spent on it

      Bf2 is still the king when it comes to play time, and there was no such thing as prestige back in the day .\

      I love Kubra Dam as well. I'm thinking I'm gonna need a new PC for BF3.

      I remember being so good at flying the helicopter in BF2. In the start of a Kubra Dam game I would always take the attack chopper and fly it through tunnel that goes through the center of the dam (barely the width of the helicopter rotors, cap the point by hovering there in the tunnel and continue my attack on the other side- using the tunnel through the dam as a quick means of getting from one side of the map to the other.

      I also remember black hawks being so plentiful on some of the bigger maps that I would always take them up solo and kamakazi into the enemy attack choppers. I lose a crap helicopter, get two kills, and take out a strong enemy vehicle. Win win.

      I have a feeling Battlefield 3 for the PC is going to blow everyone away. We will be getting more info in a week once GDC starts. Can't wait!

      BC2 was such a disaster of a game.

      I'm hoping they bring back the glory days from BF2 with this one. Give us similar maps with more destruction. Not the tunnel like maps from BC2 with a million bushes. I want urban warfare. Buildings to hide in and clear, vehicles, plenty of space, etc etc.
      Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?

      As long as I can keep barrel rolling Blackhawks and other helos like I did in BF2, I will buy BF3.

      They also have some free to play Battlefield Online beta running. I agreed not to talk too much about it after getting in on the beta... but I am not impressed.

      Disaster is way to harsh. I'd take BC2 over most current shooters, like COD Modern Rat Race Warfare.

      I suppose the disaster was more related to the ridiculous lag problems that took them months to sort out.

      The core game wasn't bad, but was not to my liking. Like I said, every map was simply a funnel to create head on battles. That is all well and fine, but certainly not what makes a Battlefield game.

      I agree. Me and the roommates played nothing but BC when I bought the PS3 and it was rare that anything other than a blu-ray was ever in the console, but BC2 lasted us all of 2 months, if that. The maps are either one long map, or smaller with less capture points. It's like they were trying to force everyone to fight over capture points in certain orders. The best part about the other battlefields is the fact that you could sit at any capture point at any one time.

      Not if you like arcade shooters.

      BF is about realism. I remember how easy it was to win most any map in MW by having the marathon perk and the best knife. Just run around and stab people.

      how are these series? that trailer looked cool, but not enough to get anything out of it.

      How is the campaighn?
      How is the online playing?

      I was imersed in CODMW2. I played the campaign twice because i like it so much, and was addicted to the online play. I was bored with CODBO pretty quickly, and I am grinding just to finish out the campaign. i think the campaign and the maps are both pretty lame.

      Would a used copy of B2 give a good idea, or would BBC be better?

      I play hardcore search and destroy. Running around with the marathon perk and a knife is guaranteed death.

      i LOVED bf2 on pc waay back in 2004. i played that religously in iraq. and i very well remember karkland! i never got into COd. but i DID purchase badcompany2 since i dont like halo 2/3 or the online versions. and WOW! badcompany's realism is awesome! the fact that every building/tree/trash can is destructible is what pulled me in! of course i have the 360version so it prob sucks compared to pc, but if bf3 is anything like BC2 i will def buy it. and prob for pc too jsut cuz i prefer mouse/keyboard over a control.

      Rush has one side trying to destroy com stations (2 at a time)before the next objective/frontline appears while the other tries to defend. This mode is as you describe it.

      Conquest has each side fighting to hold 3 to 4 specific spots on the map. This mode allows you to capture points in whatever order you want.

      The only gripes I have with BC2 is there is no auto balancing in between rounds/matches.
      More than a few times I've been in a game where players on my side have left (because you can only leave a lobby from inside a match that has started:gripe #2) and the game will not shift people around to even the sides. It's no fun being massacred when there only 2 people left on your side while the other side has 8 or more.

    23. 02-25-2011 03:41 PM #48
      agreed!! a few times ive gone on 3-4game killing sprees with my team. on the original bf2, even in game it would autobalance once you died. ive never played the raid version of the game just the original conquest.

      I would consider renewing my FPS skills for BF3 if it's good. I spent a long time playing BF2 back in the day. Never did get to 2nd LT tho.
