I have to say, when I first heard it was modern combat I was disappointed. As with many games, my cousins and friends all got on the demo together so I jumped on the bandwagon. This game is fucking amazing. The strategy involved dwarfs every first person shooter around and the only complaint I have is that the sniper rifle sucks. There are so many options in this game that it's ridiculous. My personal favorite is the spec ops class, which can run up and plant C4 on a tank and blow it up, or combat drop into an enemy base and demo their radar. Overall it's worth every penny, and I'm throughly enjoying it.

I also *love* the special ops class. Also, a little trick my friend taught me with spec ops. Cover your vehicle in C4, drive it somewhere (either around a bunch of enemies or a place where enemies will get into it) then blow it up.

How about that, yet another part of bf2 that is pretty much a perfect match for something in planetside.

If you're trying to compare BF2 to planetside, there is no comparison. I can't even begin to explain how good this game is, not to mention the fact that it doesn't cost 12.99 per month.

BF2 currently owns my life MAGUSMAGUSMAGUSMAGUS I am awesome at the medic and sniper kits, and I am working on my engineer kit skills, although the shotgun isn't really my thing. Hit me up on MSN if any of you want to play, I only play on ranked servers though.

I just unlocked the medic weapon a few days ago, I was pinning down snipers on the dam (fucking HATE that level) last night as a medic. I gotta say it felt pretty good. Shotty is god in Karkland and Mashuutar, and nowhere else. I'm also becomming a beast with anti tank, I can take down armor from across the map pretty much every time now, moving or not(guided missiles are amazing).

This is priceless, i can't wait for the Sony-EA lawsuit this is going to start. If EA can get away with this, then i should have no trouble selling gta with a taped on label.

Yeah and after Sony is done suing EA for making a better game than them, perhaps they can move on to Bungie (Halo), or Atari(Unreal Tournament), or gosh, any game that incorporates vehicles into an FPS. They're similar, ok, Command and Conquer is similar to Starcraft, I don't recall Westwood suing Blizzard, or vice versa. I don't recall Nascar suing whoever makes Midnight Club. Do you know why that is? It's because you can't sue someone for making a product similar to yours. I doubt you've even played Battlefield 2, given your obvious lack of knowledge, so I fail to see where you can make a comparison apart from what you've read about it anyway.

Aren't Planetside battles much bigger? I thought it had battles with over a 100 players.

And you can't sue people for making similar games, that's just silly.

Why not? Marvel Comics tried to sue NCSoft for City of Heroes. All because some Marvel employees were able to make superheroes with exactly the same powers to heroes published by Marvel Comics.

It's just as silly if not more.

The bolded parts separate similar from exact. Also it was in the City of Hero's EULA that you couldn't make a character with a name/appearance similar to a copyrighted character, and they deleted your character if you did.

Marvel lost that suit, I believe. They can't copywright flying or capes, or any one aspec that makes their characters unique.

And Sharqi

Speaking of Sharqi Penninsuela, I can single-handedly win this map as MEC. After jumping off the Havok I can basically take the TV station all by myself. I'm now perfecting it, you dont know how many times I've been the only person able to capture a a spawn for MEC in an entire match with that level.

I'll explain my tactic if anyones interested, it's fairly redundant though.


The unlocked shotguns are absoleutly BEAST. I can get a 20 kill to 1 death ratio with those (particularly the AT one) quite often in urban levels, easily kill an entire squad inbetween reloads.

And snipers suck, anti-tank class makes a better sniper, I've scored countless 100m+ kills with the missle, nobody seems to realise that it's a 1-hit kill guided missle capable of killing anyone not behind cover guarenteed.

You get 6 shots as an AT. It leaves a smoke trail for everyone to follow. No thanks. I will admit that the AT shotty is god, but I was disappointed by the engineer unlock. 7 shots at full auto isn't enough to kill a squad.

You don't make money playing CAL, you make money playing CPL, maybe. Also if you were actually playing CAL you'd be aware that the season hasn't started yet so it's impossible to be on a "top 3 team" because there's only been one preseason game. Almost smooth, almost. Team AWOL for the win.

Well I just purchaced Battlefield 2: Special Forces. Anyone got it yet?

The new British SAS side is pretty damn cool, they use nifty looking modern weapons rather than some mediocre rifle that's been in use since the 70s. I think the weapons have been rebalanced in the patch or something because they feel like they're doing more damage. And the sniper rifle problem, which if you're familiar with the core game was that sniper rifles were really inacurate, has been fixed. The new vehicles aren't anything other than a graphics overhaul to the original models.

The grappling hook and zip line are pretty useful in certain situations, like when the enemy Commander sends an artilery strike to the rooftop you've been sniping on. The grappling hooks were implemented in a neat way, but they're mostly useless because nearly every rooftop in all the maps are already accessable by stairs or ladders anyway.

They added night vision goggles and gas masks and flashbangs as well, which work exactly the same as they do in other games, so it's nothing new.

Overall, BF:2 was a good game to begin with, and the addition of Special Forces Pack was a nice addition, but it didn't really add anything not seen in other games of its class (Ghost Recon, etc). The pack is only $30 though, which was the selling point for me. I can't wait to get back home for Winter vacation so that I can actually play online.

I dont get to play as often as I like, but I love this game for its all out war. One round you own the opposing team, then the next round you get owned by them. Its a great game, and the mods that are coming out for it, are awsome in their own right. My favorite mod is the Stunt Mod, if you havent seen or heard of it, hit me up Ill give you some links to videos to show it off...its great!
