Summary: Battlefield 2142 uses Gamespy for its multiplayer, whose services will shut down by the end of May 2014 so there's no better time to try this game's multiplayer. Probably why its price went so low? I doubt EA will do anything to update the game so multiplayer can still be played afterward. In any case, there are only a handful of player run servers still available for the game and the graphics hold up well.
Summary: Its a fantastic game, the only problem is the lack of servers. There are more fingers on my hands than total number servers in the game. Met my expectations of being amazing, i just want more servers. I mean whats a game if theres no way to play it.
Summary: I use to play this game back in the day for hours. It was really great for it's time. After playing the newer BF games you will loose interest fast. For one there isn't many servers available to play on anymore. As of 02/13/2014, I only saw about 5 servers available. I really do hope they make room for a newer version of this game. This game was on sale for $2.99 on Amazon, so I decided to jump on it and give it a go again.
Summary: I bought this game launch day and bought Northern Strike Expansion Pack back when Ea Origin was once called EA Link. Sadly, this game is barely alive. There are currently 7 exact servers alive on patch 1.51 (current). The servers are populated with people playing it. I wish EA would make this game free like they did with BF 1942 on Origin. I would help the 2142 become populated again. This game is great.
Excerpt: battlefield 2142 is honestly a one of a kind game. Its a fps war simulation game, that is also massively multiplay and is online... but there is a twist, its set in the year 2142. The earths resources have started to run out (food, land, oil), and war has broken out. Nations have pooled their resources to form the PAC (pan asian coalition) and on the seperate side the EU (america, uk etc). They must now battle it out.
a great game worth getting the extra from the deluxe edition

Excerpt: I loved the original game Battlefield 1942; it presented one of the most unique and well developed online offerings I've ever played, complete with amazing vehicles and stellar combat. When I heard that a sequel set in the future was to be developed, I was a bit sceptical, but at least hopeful that it would be good. Thankfully, EA have delivered once again with what is for the most part a great game.
