This review is from: Battlefield 2: The Complete Collection - Classics (PC DVD) (Video Game)
The original game was a Christmas present back in 2005, and it was great fun. With the expansion packs and the mods it continued to be an enjoyable time consumer. But my computer hardware moved on and it got wiped off my hard drive. I was tempted this Christmas (2009) to try Modern Warfare 2, but after reloading the first Modern Warfare again, it limitations became apparent, I opted for the Windows 7 operating system instead. Modern Warfare (and I suspect version 2 is the same) is played on such a small stage that it begins to feel claustrophobic after a time. There is no feeling of space.
Now Battlefield 2 has some wide open spaces, from cities to desserts and stretches of water. You can get into and operate loads of different vehicles, tanks, jeeps, helicopters. You can hide in the bushes or on top of buildings, in bunkers or aircraft carriers, be on the edge of the action with your sniper rifle or deep behind enemy lines with your Special Forces gear.
Practice offline against the computer, and then discover your limitations as a battlefield trooper when you play it online (of which there are plenty of servers). The better you hardware the smoother the action, its great fun and a steal at the prices on amazon.co.uk
