    I'd the latest game patches installed, but still no leaning left/right for this game. The goof is about attaching all those C4 explosives onto a quad/beach bike, then speed the bike all around the place, sharp brake it to a full stop right by one or two enemy vehicle(s) that has about 4 to 6 guys in it/them ... got off the quad/beach bike and quickly press the detonator button that's readyI'd the latest game patches installed, but still no leaning left/right for this game.

BOOM! So easy for the expert difficulty mode, I really wished there's an option to assign more enemy bot numbers to the opposition army. The medic guy could drive me up the walls sometimes, the priority for the medic guy to rescue the down and injured first, regardless of how close the enemy is (like just few metres away), so in the end both the medic guy and the just saved player (after one resurrected by the medic guy) was gunned down altogether right after the medic guy saved a bot/player, should have made the medic guy more wiser and shoot the enemy if there's one nearby, or make some hot-keys (when down and injured, press either the keyboard key 1 to 3) so the downed player could order the medic guy to save/rescue the player or to shoot the enemy first. The mouse sensitivity couldn't be set higher for flying the choppers and jets, there are all sort of mice made all around the world, the sensitivity of my mouse are normal, but this game's flight-mouse sensitivity is not normal, I need to flung the wireless mouse off my desk to turn the F-15 Eagle jet around. It's hard to fly the F-15 at the pretty-above-and-near-take-off speed, as the mid-low flying speed could get the jet lost control and crash easily, there's no constant/fixed thrust rate for the afterburners by pressing the 1 to 9 keys on the keyboard, one needed to press and hold down the "W" key to make the jet accelerate and fly, you take a glimpse at the flying speed to the mid-left of the screen, the next thing you know was that you almost flew out of the small fly zone or missed the bombing target! Yes, flying the chopper needed a joystick, or else you could barely aim at a target or fly low enough to dodge some rockets. Expand

    Good expansion that added much and let gamers spend extra hours after each corner of 'Battlefield 2' was well known. I personally enjoyed russian military forces and of course a hook, that had changed perception of the maps and added extra strategy to the gameplay.

  1. These supermen are capable of feats ordinary Battlefield grunts could only dream of, wielding 12 new firearms and racing across eight huge new maps in 10 new vehicles. Them's a lot of numbers, but then this is definitely no ordinary game. [GamesMaster]
  2. This close to Christmas, Special Forces is probably for the game’s most loyal fans only — the folk who have played it so much that they are already desperate for new features to layer upon their already intense online experiences.
  3. With its focus on infantry and urban combat, Special Forces delivers more of the intense and insanely fun Battlefield 2 gameplay; at least, it does if you can get it running.
