Battlefield 2 had a lot of great ideas and game features going for itself. It had very good map design for Conquest and a great balance in infantry and land vehicles, air vehicles could dominate for those that mastered them and the commander mode could actually change the battle for a team. It was a very fun game and I enjoyed my years of playing it.

With that said, it was very innovative, but it still wasn’t the greatest FPS of all time. Someone recently posted in the Battlelog forums a “Veterans Only” thread that was talking about how mods made previous Battlefield games great. While it is true that there were great mods in previous titles, they did not fix all the issues in any Battlefield game. Sometime back, a very long time ago, DICE mentioned that only about 10% of the player base even played on mods. So 90% are left out in the cold.

First, let me say that I do not mind a persons opinion on a game. It is their opinion and most the time it doesn’t really matter, much like my own 😀 . For those that know me on forums or in-game know that I don’t really care if someone has a different opinion from me. What does get me though is when people try to state their opinion as a fact and/or state something with nothing to back it up with.

What is a Battlefield 2.5er? – This is a person who loved the Battlefield 2 game, or in most cases only played BF2, and after that only wanted every Battlefield game after that to be Battlefield 2.5. These people usually did not like 2142 and hated and despised the Bad Company Series and Battlefield 3. The reasoning they give for hating those games is because “they are not truly Battlefield”. Features are gone that were in BF2, such as VoIP, squad numbers, commander, smaller maps, different weapon customizations, etc… They are fanatical that Battlefield 2 was the best game in the entire series and any deviation from that is not Battlefield.
