I like BF2142 as much as BF2. its just a different flavor. Just BF2 is getting old to me so I find my self playing bf2142 more.
the things that make 2142 stand out:
More visual effects..
More sound effects..
Customizable weapon kits..
Couldn't have said it better myself. They are different flavors of game. I love BF2, but I'm bored with it. And it can get really depressing waiting 30k+ points to rank up in BF2. The BF2 patches are HUGE as well. Like 400MB for the full patch. Then you have the expansion kits to spend money on with that game.
BF2142 I like a little better. It's close though. The titan mode and shields that you can throw up when you're in armor, the walkers, the hover tanks, the revamped APC, the spawn beacons, the COMPLETELY customizable kits for your soldier, the in game buddy list, more awards, more secondary kit items, did I mention titan mode?... yeah, for me that all outweighs the lack of jets that BF2 has.
But if you ask me, you won't go wrong with either game.
