I still like it a lot, and it runs great. Reinstalling it after a HDD crash/reformat, am about to go fight for the good ol' USA on Wake Island 2007. :cool:

I still play all the time and I actually just bought the 1942 collection so I've been spending a lot of time with Vietnam. I didn't have the hardware back in the day to play these games so I'm finally getting my shot. Too bad I'm home on vacation with dialup... :(

is special forces any good? I am thinking about picking BF2 up.

Special Forces is OK, adds some nice features, but overall BF2 is great without any additional stuff, as I have only installed Special Forces about 2-3x.

Install it for the weapon loadout. I'm not sure if it still applies or not but I believe in order to get some of the other weapons in regular BF2 you have to sign into SF at least once to be able to unlock them. Seems to me you get 2 unlocks as soon as you sign into SF as well. (If you like sniping then use them to get the L96 as it's the only decent sniper rifle in the game. You can spam some of the stock ones to get kills, but even the barret is nurfed and it's hard to get 1 shot kills. The L96 though is a lot easier to use.)

Personally, I wouldn't pick the game up if you don't have it by now. A lot of the players have left with the games that have come out, and BF2 has some really annoying issues. (Hitbox detection, no true widescreen support, messes with my mouse and with my audio, etc) The game itself is a fun concept, but I find it really annoying when you need a whole clip and your pistol to take people down.

Love the Project Reality mod for it. My favorite and most played MP game for months now.

SF is pretty cool..flashbangs and ziplines come in really handy and the maps have a huge variety. There are even night maps. Right now there are more people playing the recently released Forgotten Hope 2 WW2 mod than Crysis

Yeah its showing its age but you can up the AA and AF to the max at a high res and it still looks decent while running at a crazy fast frame rate. :D

i still think BF2 looks great on the highest setting and is still one of the most fun games

still play it time to time but was playing it constantly until i upgraded my PC two months ago and got crysis etc i am sure i will go back to it lots more

Frontlines looks like it may be a good replacement for it if it gets enoughg support

I played the game to death back in the day (just like Q3A), haven't picked it up in over 12 months.

I still play it, prefer it over cod4, cs and all that crap which is boring. Bf2 still has fun maps is ok to play on the better servers.

While I have not played it in about 2 months (from last reformat), I'm downloading FH2 so that should change.

It should be back on top of my playing list now, that this mod has finally been released.

I recently installed Forgotten Hope 2 which is pretty cool.. but it reminded me of what a crap engine BF2/2142 has.

My favorite gun is the L96A1 (3rd-tier sniper rifle). :D

I used to play it every night with my buddies from school. We'd all sign in and pwn a server. But I got sick of the game. Playing it almost everynight for months on end made it boring. I quit playing it over a year ago now. Haven't missed it. My buddies still play like every night though.
