|Large-scale multiplayer warfare comes to consoles as Digital Illusions' Battlefield series brings Modern Combat to PS2. The series is known for its fast-paced competitive warfare, and as many as 24 Internet-connected players can fight together online in this edition. Headset-equipped virtual warriors can communicate in real-time, as they blast away at the enemy. Battlefield 2 also features a single-player mode, which fills the levels with artificially intelligent 'bots, both enemy and friendly. As in the PC sequel on which the console versions are based, the game's fictional war is set in the modern era, so players have access to cutting-edge military equipment, including more than 70 types of weapons and 30 different vehicles to move them across land, air, and sea. Players can choose to fight for the United States, the Chinese, or the "Middle East Coalition," and through repeated victories and outstanding achievement in the field, they'll work their way up the ranks, all the way from Private to General.|

Engage in online combat with up to 24 players online! It has conquest maps and capture the flag. It is slightly modern, but nothing futuristic. You will find yourself in a world where you can free-roam anywhere. It has vehicles like hummers, tanks, and choppers. Several vehicles can hold multiple people. Hide in buildings, parachute from ledges, swim in the rivers, or crouch in a trench. Pick a character class from assualt, sniping, engineer, etc. Hear all the action on the headset if you have one, or shout orders to your team-mates. Make friends, or join clans. When you die, you simply respawn back at any base that your team currently holds. This game also has a built in voting system for the players to vote people out. This is good if you get a team killer. The better that you get with the game, the higher rank you will achieve. You must achieve so many points per hour, and medals to advance ranks. This game has the option for rank restriction. This way if you choose a rank resticted map you can play with people like yourself. ie. a Master Seargant wont have to play with 3 star generals, nor a noob. This game has so much potential.
This game is the best money I have ever spent for the PS2. This game is great with a headset and logitech wireless controller. My review for this game is a purely online multiplayer experience, I don't play single player offline games. The graphics are good for PS2. They look even better on the PS3 because of the upscaling.
This game is fairly easy once you learn the controls. You will soon find it easier after you learn all of the maps. Most people play Backstab and Bridge too Far. Those you will need to learn first, because they're called the noob maps.
What would I like to see in the future for this game? I'd like to see the game able to splitscreen and take 2 players online. You can currently only take one player per PS2 online. I'd like to see these online games have some sort of update and support. Why can't they get on their server and change a few things from time to time for us? Like oneday host a new map online, or change a few items. I feel these games need to be able to evolve online. I'd like to see a map where you control ships. Like one ship has 2-3 flags, if your team gets them all, then you can control the ship to manuever, etc.
Ok folks, this game would be much better if they could fix the physics in the game. These are a few the the things if fixed would make the game much better. 1. A 55 gallon oil barrel will not stop a 60 ton Abrams tank dead in its tracks, unless it was full of explosives. 2. A hand grenade will not do squat to an Abrams tank and very little to a Bradley. 3. A 120mm HEIT round at point blank range cannot be stopped by a hand railing and not kill the guy standing at the railing. 4. A c4 charge will not do a thing to a tank unless it is shape charged ( we had to use 40 lb shape charges on T-55's and up) 5. A 120mm HEIT round, just one, would blow any helicopter out of the air, no matter where it hit it. 6. Anti-tank mines cant just be tossed out, they have to be set. 7. A 40mm grenade from an M203 will not damage an Abrams tank. 8. the blast radius of a HE round is much greater than portrayed in the game. Also the server for this game is not well maintained. Lag problems are always an issue and it takes some patience to get into a room because only a couple of games list and usually the number of people in the room display is wrong.
The offline play has some of the same issues but if you can live with these issues the game as some entertainment value
It's true, Battlefield 2 is the worst game I've ever played. Missions have enemies that are either impossible or easy to defeat, alot of the time enemies will spwan infanatly while you are only stuck with a handfull of men, sometimes behind you with a shotgun. The gameplay is terrable, if you want to take cover behind something an enemy will just spawn behind you, in the first mission!
The AI just spend the entire missions getting themselvs killed. The online play gets a little better but still doesn't make the cut, If you are new and trying to get better people will just kick you from the game, about 80% of the maps are filled with snipers.
I recomend to just skip this title entirely.
I have yet to play this game online, but single player has incredibly fun action. This is mostly because of the freedom to swap characters instantly to get a better shot at the enemy or just go where the action is, control vehicles, etc. In fact you have to swap a lot to win the missions in single player mode to defeat the enemy. The effect when you swap never gets old. You ZOOM across to the highlighted character and continue destroying the enemy under the control of a different soldier on the battlefield. This really gives you the feeling you are in control of an army rather than the typical lone gunman shooter in a crowd of AI at war. It's truly exciting and one of the best action shooters I've played. Before you buy it however you should be familiar with the default control scheme that the PlayStation 2 uses for most (if not all) of it's shooters, because this game won't let you change the analog stick control scheme at all...ouch! The left analog stick controls the strafe and foward/backward movement and the right stick looks/aims. That set up works fine for me, but if you like your aiming/moving controls another way your out of luck. That's a limitation worth losing a point over. So this is a great game that brings an enormous action-packed freedom to the battlfied... but limits the gamer where it hurts... after all it's only the controls! Thanks EA we know you mean well. This game is a keeper!
This review is for the Playstaion 2 version only, so I can't comment about how it is on the XBox. I played Battlefield 2 on the PC at my friends house, and it was AWESOME! I was hoping that BF2:MC would be almost as good for the PS2. Unfortunately, it's not as good as the PC version (most games ported from the PC to a console aren't). I mainly buy games for the online play. You can find reviews in game magazines and websites that focus on the single player campaign, but almost no info about the important online play. Here's a list of the online PROs & Cons:
...Doesn't measure up to the PC version. PC hosts up to 150 players at a time, PS2 only handles 24 (SOCOM3 & Delta Force: Black Hawk Down each can handle 32, so why can't BF2?
... Very limited game types available. Only has Capture the Flag and Conquest. Plus, it is only respawn, so people just run in guns a blazin' without using tactics because they know they will come back to life in about 15 seconds.
... Can't host games, so you can't keep team killing A$$holes from joining your game.
...Some maps end up with 80% of the players sniping, so it becomes boring fast.
...The included instruction manual doesn't cover very much but the very basics. It leaves out instructions on how to use the parachute, fly a helicopter, use the GPS, use the artillery strike, pick up dicarded equipment, etc...
...Almost no lag/frame rate shudder no matter how many people are fragging each other in a confined space (unlike SOCOM3 which can lag pretty bad when there is lots of action in a small space).
...When you find a good game, the back-and-forth action can be a lot of fun.
...Using tanks, HUMMVEs,"jeeps",helicopters, parachutes, artillery and mortar strikes is great.
...BF2 is very easy to learn, and A LOT less imposing to log on and play when compared to any of the SOCOM games.
RATING: I give BF2:MC a 4 out of 5 for the online play. If you want more of a challenge online, buy a SOCOM game or Splinter Cell game. If you want an easy to learn and play game with lots of other people online at once, buy Battlefield 2: Modern Combat. You won't be disappointed.
