Is it worth picking up Battlefield 2 for $5?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I have BF3 and Bad Company 2, but I have never played Battlefield 2. Amazon has it on sale right now (the complete edition) for $5. Should I pick it up? Is it worth it?

No. Its very very different from BC2 and BF3. Also it will kill ur eyes with 2005 graphics.

I have it and have played it once. The graphics aren't that bad and it is fun, but very different from BC2 and BF3. Not sure how many people are still playing I know when I played it was with a BF2 veteran that hadn't played for a while and they were in awe at how few servers there were for it. But I would think that would be expected for a game that old?

If you want to get your ass whooped, sure, go ahead wink.gif

Graphics aren't that bad really, but it's not the easiest game, especially playing against veteran players.

If you want to see how far the apple has fallen from the tree since the Battlefield franchise was shoehorned into consoles, it'll be quite a shock. Note that it does not play like today's game: it has a learning curve and the objective is centered around your team winning, not your K/D.

Yeah but for casual games its terrible. Most people dont want to play thousands of hours.

I loved BF2 (my first BF was BF Vietnam) but it's outdated in a hundred different ways. Not worth 5 dollars.
