    This PC war-tastic juggernaut comes to a console near you sporting a surprisingly meaty single-player experience, as well as its trademark clusterf..k multiplayer.
  2. A must have for fans of combat games, multiplayer games, and games in general.
  3. Simply put, the game blew me away in the first mission. It's not perfect, no game is, but for all of the minor problems the game's got, it's still a hell of a lot of fun.
  4. A brilliant game whether you buy it for the single-player, the multiplayer or both. [PSW]
  5. Same killer and addictive online gameplay you’d expect from Battlefield.
  6. A solid translation of the Battlefield series to consoles. It doesn’t quite recreate the experience perfectly but it does it well enough to make it a compelling purchase.
  7. An unashamedly entertaining surprisingly strategic shooter. [Nov 2005, p.112]
  8. An excellent multiplayer FPS. The different soldier types and vehicles keep the game fresh for a long time. Too bad tanks cannot drive through small fences and over small rocks. [Jan 2006]

    The reoson why I gave this game a 5/10 and not 1 10/10 is beacause the campaigne mode sucked big. The gameplay 10/10, sounds 10/10 multiplayerThe reoson why I gave this game a 5/10 and not 1 10/10 is beacause the campaigne mode sucked big. The gameplay 10/10, sounds 10/10 multiplayer 10/10 but campaign mode -8/10. The campaign was so bloody short. I finished it in like 3 hours! It even took me longer to finish sly racoon! What also sucks is that it has no offline muliplayer what the ****?! And as usuall it has the typical story about a war going on with Asia and America zzzzzzzz. Even though you can use other military types like EU and MEC, you can only use it in multiplayer BOOOOOOO! The game needs a lot of work. Buy the Pc version instead (highly advised)! Full Review »
