Battlefield 2 - Better Than You Think.,
This review is from: Battlefield 2: Modern Combat (PS2) (Video Game)
Ok first things first, don't compare this game to the pc versions. It has been made for a console, so it is obviously going to be different, and it will obviously be limited in a certain way =)
The game itself is a fun game to play, and is very challenging. The point score system is hard to keep up, so it ensures you play well and focus in game. It gives you a tension, cus the better you play, the better you develop and the more you unlock. Being battlefield, it is a intense fighting zone, not completly realistic if you compare it with the likes of Socom, however the fast paced, hardcore action keeps you immersed.
Think of it like this, with so many guns blazing, and vechiles driving about, most of them hostile, you gotta watch your back and try not to die. This is an amazingly fun game, and is sometimes bloody hard to acheive your goal.
Online is a great laugh, playing with up to 25 people, however this doesn't mean that single player is a downer.
The single player feature in the game puts you in to over the top combat across the world. As you progress you rise in ranks and unlock better and more sophisticated weaponry.
The missions are mixed and you also are able to access challeges, like hotswapping or races. You are timed and they can be extremely hard to complete. But that's part of the fun, also the parachuting you can do! Hooyah!
The game gives you 200 missions in single player, I've played for hours and only done 17 missions, that's a long lifespan for a game people.
Have fun should you choose to buy it, it's worth it.
