I suggest you ignore this review, which, for some reason is not a review of BF 2142. Take a look at the forums for the game (which are now US only forums, sorry, I mean english speaking forums for the US & UK) and read the list of complaints and bugs. Ok, there are positive comments too, but it has it's problems.
For example, enormous lag when the titans move near each other. Don't worry though, EA released a fix for this problem.....ready???
Don't move the titans near each other...
WTF....what kind of support of fix is that?
I'll tell you what, the kind of support and fixes that BF2 has been subjected to and exactly what you'll get for BF2124.
If you're not quite sure what BF2142 is, it's a ham fisted and cynical program that pretends to be a game (compared to BF2, it's only half a game) but is just a testbed for EA's advertising schemes.
IGA are responsible for the advertising and are worming their way into our hobby.
Check out the link
to IGA's website and read their opening page. Do you really want people who have that sort of attitude having influence over your gaming and using your net connection (which you pay for) to collect non gaming information?
The demo was average at best and worth playing if you think you might like the game. However, the full game (snooping issues aside) isn't worth the asking price; new maps, new game mode, new skins and the usual innefective weapons. If it wasn't a standalone game, it would be an average mod. Other games have had just as much content released for free, and that's without advertising.
Still, find out for yourself and ignore the review, it's not the game that you will buy.
