    Simply a phenomenal experience, online and off, that should be played by any FPS fan, or just action game fans in general.
  2. Battlefield 2 should be the benchmark for any future first person war shooter on the Xbox.
  3. Same killer and addictive online gameplay you'd expect from Battlefield.
  4. A bit of a paradox. While the graphics are poor, the sound is much more developed. The controls are great for while on foot, but vehicles take some adjustment.
  5. Online play has been Battlefield's strongest feature up until now. In this version the single player mode rivals the online mode.
  6. The controls are not as tight as you want when your virtual life is on the line. [Jan 2006, p.64]
  7. Little more than a shooting gallery, especially in single-player mode. [Feb 2006, p.88]

    The thing about Battlefield 2: MC, is that it has glaring errors, glitches, and issues aplenty. However, as soon as you find a comfort zone while playing online, you will forget about every single one of them. The game is just so satisfying. Every kill is an adrenaline rush, every flag being attacked will have you peeking over your shoulder, looking to the skies, and listening for the rumble of the inevitable tank that's always just around the corner. It really emphasized team mechanics and communication. The tension is usually so thick you can cut it with a knife. Despite all of it's flaws, and there are more than a few, it is one of the most addictive games I've ever had the pleasure of playing. Also, the experience on the XBOX seemed to trump that of the XBOX 360, and I never could figure out why... Expand

    The most fun I've ever had in a BF game.
    It was missing the core teamplay elements like squads and commander, but the gameplay is so
    addicting that it really didn't matter to me.
    Easy to glitch into walls and under the map.
    Diamonds around players was a dead giveaway.
    Maps were the best in the series! (for 24 players)

    I owuld give this a 10, but no game is perfect.
