Summary: Battlefield 2 is known as being one of the best online FPS games on the PC. After playing it for a few months I can see why. PROS + Cheap price that can't be beat. + Wide variety of guns, including unlockable guns. + Full ability to control vehicles like helicopters, jets, and cars. + Large environments that don't make you feel cooped up. + Rewarding ranking system with medals. CONS - On some of the larger servers, spawn camping is an issue.
Summary: If you enjoy guns, military, shooting, flying, driving fast, explosions - buy this game. I've logged over 700 hours playing this online, flying choppers, healing wounded, fixing tanks, sniping, doing stunts, and killing over 20,000 other people online 24 hours a day. You can win awards and earn a higher rank. Other people can check your stats to see what you've accomplished. The maps are HUGE! Very realistic.
Summary: I used to play call of duty and then I got this game and it consumed so much of my time and messed up my wrist with carpal tunnel syndrome, but how I love the game... Anyway I would play it for a couple of months then sell it when it intruded too much on my regular life, ha ha then buy it again.
Summary: First of all, I would recommend getting this game only if you meet the requirements, not the minimum, but the normal ones. If you don't you will get a crappy experience. Next this game is mainly designed to be played online with other people. I say this because there is no campaign mode and the singleplayer maps are very small. As in any game there is always the chance of getting in a server full of a-holes but this should not discourage you from enjoying the game.
Summary: This game is great. It has vehicles like tanks, helicopters, airplanes, hummers and more... You have to play as a team. You also need a decent, powerful computer like the specification recommends, and fast internet connection like DSL or Broadband.
Makes counterstrike and most other online fps games seem pointless and boring

Summary: There is so much fun to be had in this game. Not to mention all the different strategies you can use. You can use vehicles, many different types of weapons as different soldier classes. Land mines, grenades, guided missles, sniper rifles, claymores, artillery, etc.. it just has no end. All of the game is balanced pretty well and once you get the hang of it, you will figure out the ups and downs of each type and vehicle. It is fun to play for hours and the maps are HUGE.
*****HOW TO MAKE BF2 WORK WITH WINDOWS VISTA PLEASE READ*****

Summary: I have windows vista home premium and I am 14 years old. I figured out how to make bf2 run smoothly with windows vista. Here are the steps: 1. Make a shortcut of BF2 and all the booster packs if you got any. 2.Then right-click on the shortcut and click properties. 3. Click the compatibility tab and check the box "run as administrator" 4. Check the box to run it in compatibility mode and click apply. Then click ok. 5. do this for each shortcut if you have booster packs.
Summary: Want to play the best single player war game? Then go play Call of Duty 2. Want to play the best SWAT type tactical? Then go get Half-Life 2 and play Counter-Strike: Source which goes through periodic updates. Want to play the best multiplayer war game? Then before you even consider playing Day of Defeat: Source, go directly for Battlefield 2 instead which is certainly what you have been looking for and probably more.
Summary: After having this game for a little over two months now, I still have not even begun to get bored by it. The maps are big enough that you can always find a new hiding place or shortcut. The truly great thing about this game is that it is easy to just jump in and start playing, but as you start getting more involved in the battle you start to discover new things. The path of discovery ultimately leads to learning how to fly the various aircraft and becoming an ace pilot.
