This is better than Crysis or ET Quake Wars IMHO,
This review is from: Battlefield 2: The Complete Collection (PC DVD) (Video Game)
I have been playing this game for nearly two years and I have to agree with the previous positive comments and say, so far, its the best first person shooter ever made. I used to play the Wolfenstein series online and wish for some of the things this game offers.
To begin with it is hard to stay alive, but after a month you should be getting much better at it and start scoring better. There are plenty of servers running online games even now two years on. It is worth playing the single player game for practice, or start a server of your own on your PC [easy] for special practice like flying jets and choppers.
It is true, you do need a fairly good machine to get the best possible gameplay, but you can enjoy the game even with most of the settings turned right down. The previous comment about the gameplay being poor is frankly rubbish. If you have a top end PC then you can turn it all up and enjoy excellent graphics as well as brilliant gameplay.
All the vehicles in this game are driveable and the developers have gone to the trouble of making their movement as realistic as possible. You will get a chance to fly jets and helicopters, drive tanks, armoured personel carriers, jeeps, anti-aircraft vehicles and boats.
The game also allows for a level of teamplay missing in every other game by providing in game communications for players who join squads to chat with each other, commanders who can talk to the squad leaders, drop supplies, vehicles and artillery, and assist them with radar surveillance. When you are killed, if no medic revives you, you respawn 15 seconds later at your choice of friendly flag or on your squad leader's position.
On top of this there is a 'career' based scoring structure which saves your scores and a million other statistics online for you to review and even plan your route to earning rewards and medals. You start with a basic load-out of weapons but after your scores increase you will be promoted and certain new weapons will become available to 'unlock' which you can then use on the battlefield.
So there you have it, a game which is over two years old, still attracting new players, still keeping the interest of veteran players, still hasn't been beaten in terms of gameplay, what more could you ask?
GO ON, BUY IT!! See you on the battlefield [my nickname is Granpa$kunk]

Crysis is poor compared to any of the battlefield series (excluding BF:Bad Company and BF2 Modern Combat), great review by the way mate.

Crysis wars is way better than this... just need to play it on a good spec machine. BF2 was, in it's day a great game but now it is coming to the end of it's life span, it has a limited number of good servers left on which to play it and the graphics are now very poor in comarison to the new games on the market... rip BF2 :(

@Brian: Graphics do not make a good game. ;)
Also, of course "the new games on the market" are going to have better graphics that is inevitable. XD
And another thing, why are ya'll comparing BF with Crysis? O_O
