Battlefield 2 is a first-person shooting game released by Electronic Arts in 2005, Battlefield 2 promises all the hardcore gamers an intense realistic gaming experience. It is actually the third game of the Battlefield franchise. Crisp visuals and terrific sounds amplify the thrill of playing this game set in modern era warfare.
The plot of the game is part fiction and part real. It is about a group of soldiers with their allegiances to different countries and alliances. It reflects the post-Cold War world with different emerging centers of power. A war is going on between China, USA, Russia, and the Middle East Coalition. It is being fought on various fronts.
The game thrives on immersive gameplay that requires strategic smartness and tactical planning. The multiplayer mode can be played using either the Internet or the Local Area Network. Even if you don’t have access to either, there is a single-player mode. This model has three degrees of difficulty. The improved AI ensures that the battles are hard-fought. If you and your teammates use the ranked serve to play the game, you can add your rankings to the global players’ list. It makes for interesting match-ups and unlimited possibilities. These rankings can be used to unlock cool rewards like expansion packs and additional weapons.
This game can be played in two modes: Conquest and Cooperative. The former includes missions with the AI players and the latter consist of the real players. So it goes without saying that the gains in the Conquest mode do not add to the global rankings.
In the beginning, both the squads are handed a number of tickets. Either reduce the enemy’s tickets to zero or capture all the control points to complete the missions. But it is easier said than done. Gritty firefights, close shaves, and coordinated attacks keep the adrenaline levels high. It does not take long to change the entire nature of the game.
As the 3rd installment of the series, we see a definite improvement in the graphics. It runs smoothly with glitches and frame drops. The old armored tanks and helicopters from the previous version of the game have been remodeled to look even better.
A superb well-calibrated control gives you proper control to affect those clean-as-a-whistle headshots. For the PC gaming clan, this game offers different degrees of control.
The multiplayer mode provides quite a number of exciting features. The squad is commanded by a Commander who exclusively has access to the real-time map of the mission, with the enemy squad marked in red. Further, he has control over a number of cool features like spy drones to keep track of the enemy movement; artillery strikes can be ordered to assist the squad under fire. Even an option to drop a vehicle or supplies is available.
A number of awards and achievements can be unlocked by scoring additional points in combat. Keep collecting the ribbons and badges and go the extra mile to score those prestigious medals.
Battlefield 2 offers a wide array of maps to choose from. A variety of topography ranging from the marshlands of Songhua Stalemate to others like Strike at Karkand which has a distinctively urban setting is available. Depending on your position, the maps will have soldiers of different alliances. Maps like Zatar Wetlands have a significant presence of the MEC. Other than the terrain, the maps differ in their sizes. Different maps thus support the different number of players for the Multiplayer Mode. Huge maps and different terrains give enough room to strategize the moves.
Thus overall, Battlefield 2 makes up for an intense PC gaming experience. Better graphics and realistic sounds are the icings on the cake.
