BF2 or BF2142 - Page 5

post #41 of 94
This pisses me off. People are formulating opinions about BF2142 WITHOUT EVEN PLAYING IT! And don't say you played the demo and hated it... the demo sucks and doesn't stand up to the actual game. It is, after all a demo, and lacks some things that the game has.

And the game is full of spyware? LMAO the only "Spyware" I have seen in the game is Intel ads on billboards as seen below: *and all you C2D fanboys should love it*



I don't get pop ups, or strange e-mails as a result of my owning this game. Literally "spyware" in the game is some thing that discerns what region you live in, so it can display the billboards correctly. i.e. If you live in a different speaking country, you see the ad in your language.

BF2 with Spyware that you pay $50 for... wow, way to be judgmental about a game that you obviously don't own.

How about this. You only give opinions about games you ACTUALLY OWN. I don't say games I don't own are crap... if you don't own the game, then there is really no way you can give your opinion on it to someone thats thinking about buying it. You haven't played it enough to formulate a valuable opinion in the first place.

And don't say I tried it at a friends house for 5 minutes. There's plenty of games I haven't liked until I had played it enough to understand it. For a game like BF2142, you haven't even experienced all the game has to offer until you've spent 5+ hours on it.

So again... don't give an opinion on either game if you don't even have it to play. Otherwise, why don't you go ahead and review every game out there. Don't even play them, or if you do, don't give yourself a chance to like them either. Just spew out crap that other people say about it... buy it and formulate your own opinion, then come back.

Not one of you people that say "don't get BF2142" have anything else to say right now about the game but "it's basically BF2 with ads". Well it's not. So tell us something useful we can think about if you don't like it.

I'm going to have to agree with this.
I personally haven't even seen one of the billboards... and I've never had to register the game...
And as far as and bugs... I've ran into maybe a few in the many hours I've played it...
But BF2 is still a good game and still going strong. My bro still plays it. but only cause he doesn't have the money for 2142.. haha

I 100% agree with CWell1337. Its ridiculous to dog a game when you don't even own it. Ya gota bring more to the table besides a bias opinion you got from some review or even a beta version of the game.

As far as spyware, I still haven't seen proof from the 2 people that posted that information. I've been playing the game since it first came out and I have seen no sign of any type of spyware.

There are about 5-6 billboards in the entire game that advertise intel but again they are billboards and they do what billboards do. The billboards are ingame ads, so if thats your idea of spyware please straiten your facts and stop misleading everyone.

One random thing that downs 2142 for me is the noobs that use the hover copter things as Japanese Zeros and kamikaze them into people. I've had that done 3 times to me and I've only played the game a total of about 2.5 hours. And all 3 times it happened when I was trying to take a flag/silo/whatever it's called on foot; I wasn't in a vehicle or anything. Lame. They should have made it at least so that the kamikaze doesn't get points for a kill doing that crap.

I also don't like the freaking hover tanks, lol. I just need practice with that though.

Overall I like BF2 the most, probably because I've been playing it so long, I'm better at it, and I like the more realistic feel to it.

If it were up to 2.41 then we would be playing BF2 2, lol. Also, the single player is best for training, and the game should not be bought soley for the single player mode, but it is still fun, especially when you get the modification that allows for 63 AI players (you make 64) on a 32 player map, etc.

Someone earlier made the comment that the game is made by EA. I don't know what people are smoking, but EA is a distributor. They market the game, run the website, post the patches, etc. They have very little, if anything, to do with the programming itself. DICE programmed the game and was responsible for the patches. Get it straight, people! I am not sure what part EA had in how long support for BF2 lasted as far as the patches go, but it lasted for over a year...
Woops hit 2 instead of 1
well shows how well support goes for older games, anyways Single player is NOTHING compared to online, the maximum AI comes nowhere close to some online players (well assuming the online player isn't a cheater of course). I never said single player wasn't fun BUT one should realize this is NOT meant to be a single player.

heh it's a common mistake people blame the most obvious (which is EA) they may only be the distributer but they ought to do better quality control on their products.

2 months now and no signs of spyware or ad-ware any of the crap that people claim (probably those that don't even own the game).

I know it’s frustrating, but it happens very often in bf2 too. I've had it happen to me a few times while being the gunner in the aircraft. Also been rammed while being on the ground. I've even had people slam into me with another aircraft while I was flying. But I've never stooped low enough to do it my self.

Also another dumb aspect that you'll find in both bf2 and 2142 is people that stick c4 on jeeps and cars and slam it into the enemy tank and detonate it on impact.


I agree though they should not get points for kill like that. And if they didn't there would be little reason to do it in the first place.

Well, the helicopter or plane kamikaze thing doesn't happen nearly as often in BF2 as it does in BF2142, at least in my experience.

Yeah, the C4 thing is real gay, hate that junk.

And amen to that last sentence.
