BF2142... Does it get better? - Page 3

post #21 of 25
I found that 2142 was extremely lacking in the vehicle category. The tanks we're clunky and not fun to drive, same as the walkers and hover craft. BF2 has jets and helicopters and pretty much every vehicle is fun to drive.

2142 has helicopters...from the people I know that play BF2 it supposedly works about the same other than it takes a little more learning on how to land and hover well since it "works" on jets instead of traditional rotors.

It basically has a jet too...the gun ship pretty much handles like a jet once you kick it in gear.

As far the tanks go I also hear the oposite there as well. I guess it all comes down to personal preference. the hover tank and the walker can take some learning, but now they are my favorite vehicles. Most likely just because they are different and can go places where a conventional tank can't go.

I thought those jet heli things felt like a giant hovermower...

2142 is a very good game, but its only good if you are playing it with a few people you know and you are in a squad. If you are running about on your own you will get very bored and probably won't get much done. In BF2 you can easily run about on your own and capture points, but with 2142 its much better when you have a sniper, a medic and a engineer all going around together.

I need to go get some friends then.

I don't have BF 2, but I got BF2142 from a freebie, so I guess I'll try it out...
Friends don't play PC games though, they mostly own one console and spend hours playing single player games.

I have no friends

JK, but I have no friends who play PC games. Most of my friends have 360's, but anyway, I've played both BF2 and BF2142 and both offer different things. I just got 2142 recently and I have to say, it is very fun, but it is more fun when played in squads. It just has a different feeling, the futuristic type compared to modern day sort, and a lot of people still enjoy playing modern combat in BF2. 2142 still is fun.

In the meantime, I've got to find some online friends...
