BF2:MC is a great game, in my opinion the best currently on the 360 even if it is only a port from the PS2/XBOX version.
This game was only really created for one purpose and that was to play online and that is where the game excels itself over the competition. The BF2:MC demo on xbox360 live was the number 1 xbox306 live game for a week after is release, that shows how populer this game is. the online experience itself is again, great. The maps are detailed and can support upto 24 players simultaneously, the teams are always even, or within 2 people, so no one team can be overwhelmed. games can swing either way on all maps, just because you select the team that won the previous round dosent mean your gauranteed to win, in some cases your more likley to lose.
but no game is perfect, in some cases you will get people purposly killing own team mates for what seem like completly stupid reasons. one case of this happend when i played the 360 demo for the first time. I get into the helicopter at the start of the round when over the comunicator somone says "dont take off, wait for me" so i wait for him to get in, he hangs around the helicopter pad with a rocket launcher and i knew what he was going to do but it was to late for me to do anything about it, he fires the rocket and i die. these sorts of people come in 3 forms, 1 accidental ( not often but it does happen, ive done it myself) 2 one of (these guys will just hit you once or twice for the hell of it) and the 3rd one is constant (they will purposly hunt you down throught the entire round killing you when they can. Unfortunatly the vote kicking system isnt very good but the new gamer rep feature of xbox360 live is a small deterant but again its not effective.
overal the online aspect of the game is very very good, the best out there. Dont let the bad aspects put you of, if you are looking for an all action online game then get this.
one last point, this game isnt the same as the PC version, its completly diffrent. The maps, vehicles, weapons they are all diffrent from the console version of the game. bare that in mind if you are moving from PC to xbox360
