Battlefield 2 Boxshot

Despite the fact that it's a sequel, Battlefield 2 is a thrilling action game that immerses you in the chaos of combat like never before.

The Good

  • Thrilling online gameplay that's revolutionary at times  
  • Built-in voice support is the next best thing to Xbox Live  
  • The new squad and commander functions elevate the gameplay  
  • Beautiful graphics and insane sound effects immerse you  
  • The best military action game yet made. 

The Bad

  • Steep hardware requirements, long load times  
  • No way to keep track of buddies  
  • Clumsy server browser  
  • No cooperative gameplay mode  
  • Rebinding controls can be frustrating.

There will be doubters and naysayers who will claim that Battlefield 2 is just an incremental upgrade from its famous predecessors, or that it only offers a marginal improvement over the popular Desert Combat mod for Battlefield 1942. Ignore them, because they couldn't be more wrong. EA and Digital Illusions' cutting-edge and highly awaited sequel is everything that it's supposed to be and more. Battlefield 2 is a thrilling testament to how great PC gaming can be. It packs unmatched gameplay, impressive visuals, and endless replayability in one exquisite package. And it's, by far, the most fun that we've had with a PC game this year.

Battlefield 2 elevates the excitement and action from its illustrious predecessors by making you feel like part of an actual elite military squad in battle.

Contrary to its name, Battlefield 2 is actually the third game in the Battlefield series, and, on the surface, it sticks closely to the formula established in the previous two games. In it, two teams of up to 32 players each battle it out for supremacy on huge virtual battlefields, taking the fight to one another on foot, in a vehicle, on sea, and in the air. This time around, though, you'll have the opportunity to take modern weapons and equipment into the fray, as the game is based in a near-future, hypothetical conflict that pits the forces of the United States, China, and the fictional Middle Eastern Coalition in mortal combat with one another.
