Battlefield 2 is the third release of the first-person shooter game Battlefield published by Electronic Arts and developed by Digital Illusions CE. This download includes a single player mode with three difficulty levels and an online multiplayer mode using the Internet or a LAN connection. All modes have the same maps and gameplay: to conquer different empires and fulfill missions. In the single player campaign you can play with only sixteen bots players and with sixty four in the multiplayer mode.
This new title of the saga brings new weaponry and completely realistic vehicles and character movements. The possibility of playing online with friends makes this game a quite addictive option despite its high system requirements. Battlefield 2 offers twelve maps to play with poor diversity but with the same essence and intense gameplay. Its new game engine also has brought an improved graphical aspect as well as the sound section which truly recreate a real war environment. Once you get into the game you must remember that you are not alone and it has a unique teamwork system difficult to see in other FPS game.
Get into the war
In Battlefield 2 you can choose between three armies: U.S. Marines, China or the Middle Eastern Coalition. The game takes place in a fictional world war between US, Russia and China in the near future (you can also play additional factions with some available expansions packs like Special Forces, Euro Force or Armored Fury). This release offers 15 playable maps which go from urban environments to desert areas that you can also record thanks to its built-in battle recorder. As you fulfill missions you can obtain special recognition awards that can be used to unlock new weapons.
In the Commander Mode you can be the chief of your team –usually this role is taken by the players who are at the top of the rank- and control your strategy. You will be able to communicate with the rest of the players by sending requests or even by VoIP. By being the commander you can climb the ladder in the rank and become the most powerful player in the statistics.
There is a large list of vehicles that any player can control in Battlefield 2: helicopters, tanks, fighter planes, boats and others until twenty-five types. Furthermore, you can choose your type of soldier among: assault, doctor, sniper, engineer or others. The objective is creating an equilibrated team with some types of soldiers because all are important and necessary to win. The design tries to be as realistic as it is possible, so the soldiers won’t have superpowers, just a good strategy to survive.
