  • Summary: Battlefield 2: Armored Fury booster pack for Battlefield 2 brings all-out mechanized battles to US soil for the first time. Maps set in the US have been requested by the community for quite some time, and we are pleased to deliver three that set the stage for huge armored warfare battles. 3 NEW MAPS: Operation Midnight Sun: The conflict spreads near the Pacific Ocean in a key battle for the Alaskan port of Valdez, where Chinese forces are attempting to secure much-needed fuel from the pipeline. Operation Harvest: The MEC army begins their march East towards the U.S. Capital, and American forces must stall the advance long enough for reinforcements to arrive. Operation Road Rage: The MEC forces have infiltrated deep into the USA, and are using the highways to move quickly towards key industrial sites that are dangerously near civilian areas. To balance the wide-open tank battles with aerial firepower, six new vehicles will be introduced, including 3 scout helos such as the MD 530 ?Little Bird?, and 3 ground attack aircraft like the A10 Warthog.

  1. Armored Fury is the best multiplayer shooter game out there. The original game is just plain fun, and this Armored Fury booster is more icing on the cake.
  2. A solid expansion to an already stellar game, one that adds considerable content and strategy without mucking up the core mechanics that made the Battlefield 2 experience so much fun in the first place.
  3. With some nice added content and balanced gameplay, Armored Fury is a nice booster pack for an already terrific game. Plus, at just 10 bucks, the price is certainly right for fans looking to add more substance.
  4. Available online for 10 dollars, Armored Fury is yet another recommended addition to BF2. [Sep 2006, p.44]
  5. The AI for all of the Battlefield suite is well written, but there's nothing like a human opponent or partner to add spice to the experience.
  6. Suffers from the same basic flaw as "Euro Forces" did. Servers are not identified, which causes problems for vanilla players, and therefore servers do not use the booster packs. [Aug 2006, p.60]
  7. With its uninspired maps, lack of new weapons and missing Special Forces content, Armored Fury would be a little disappointing even if it were free.
