Summary: TL;DR Game great, Origin terrible. Great game back in it's day, and if you can get enough people to play the mothership mode(which is unavailable using bots) you will have an absolute blast. But at 99 cents(at the time of writing) it's an obvious grab for customers by the Origin service, which means it is very much *not* worth the price of admission.
Summary: Battlefield 2 is losing its audience. Friday nights barely have a handful of players, and most servers don't get full. That being said, Battlefield 2142 has even less people playing. I picked this game up for $1.00, so not a big waste of money. Once I had downloaded, installed, and updated everything, the next step was multiplayer gaming. Searching for servers resulted in several empty, and only a couple with any players. One had 24 players, so that was... good(?
Summary: If you thought BF2 has some lack of support, you'll be in shock from this one. They released a game that performs like it wasn't even ready for Beta testing. This is one game that I'll be passing on, having played it at my friends'. Titan Mode is so laggy that its almost unplayable, kicking people with low ping from games. And the ads are just obnoxious.
Summary: To start with the good, many balancing issues of Battlefield 2 have been properly addressed, such as overpowered air support, underpowered infantry, a wide array of mostly useless kits, etc., so EA has certainly learned something from the shortcomings of their last effort. Unfortunately, the major innovation of BF2142, titan mode, is hampered by some prevalent performance issues.
Excerpt: "So, here is the next battlefield game we have all been waiting for. And look, it's a huge disappointment. Gameplay: Uh, 6. Kind of fun, but boring. I could just play battlefield 1942, it's not really all that different. Hard to get into the battle if you do not have a vehicle. Vehicles are somewhat clumsy, and walking around for ages can be cumbersome. Some more things: 1. Really crappy storyline. Some random ice age, war, blah blah blah. 2. ...
Pros: The combat is somewhat fun, albeit clumsy . Some of the technology is cool .
Cons: No real improvement, could have been an expansion, looks more like 2042, clumsy mech, etc .
Excerpt: Jag kommer nu att ge detta spelet en hel del kritik då jag inte blev ett dugg imponerad av spelet mer än dom 20-25 första minuterna. Direkt man kommer in på slagfältet så har man inte särskilt mycket att säga till om, antingen blir man nerskjuten av sågon som kommer med ett grytm vapen, eller så ställs man framför en stor robot som inte går att döda ( typ) i alla fall om man inte har C4, men för att kunna använda C4 måste man ha låst upp en speciell grad.
