Battlefield 2 worth getting?

For Project Reality. Is there still a lot of people playing? Worth $5?

Yes people still play. If you have ever played Battlefield 3 then you've already played Battlefield 2. At least that is what I felt after going in that order BF3 to 2 (since I never experienced 2). Fun game, I just got really annoyed with all the unstoppable radio chat. Worth the money if you're going to play.

I would be surprised if there were many servers still going as the audience for these type of games tend to migrate to the newest title when it's available.

Then you'll be surprised, because BF2 does still have it's dedicated community. It's not BF3/BF4 level but it's definitely there. Same with BC2 and to a lesser extent 1942. Vietnam and 2142 are the odd men out.

In fact if the stat trackers are still functioning correctly there are right now almost as many people playing BF2 as there are on CoD: Ghosts. That number is around 1,500 people btw, so don't take that as an indication that there's thousands online.

I'm getting it on steam while already owning a retail copy. It's that good.

BF2 is nowhere near its heyday (obviously) but there are a few servers. I tried going in once but I just couldn't play. The community is way different now.

Another idea I had was the spy/sniper being able to climb into the soldier's rocket launcher and be launched across the map, dealing more damage, but no splash.

I got mine for 5 dollars. Do it man.

However, You can probably find it for much cheaper.
