I had this game for PS3, played it death. I'd like to pick it up for PC though. GMG has it on sale for $5 and Vietnam for $5 but it's supported by Origin, which I do have for BF3. I would imagine this game is still active somewhere as it's a great game. I'm just wondering where people play it. I'm guessing Steam but your confirmation would be appreciated.
If that GMG sale was a Steamworks game I'd snatch it up in an instant. --- Drink your milk!
The servers are all the same. The official servers are dead so you can only play by joining a server from the browser. There are a still a decent amount of people playing. I'd say at least 1000 or more, maybe 200-400 in rush which is all I ever play.
I put over 500hrs into this game on PS3 before I bought it on PC for $5 and I highly recommend taking advantage of that GMG sale if you're into this game. One thing you should know about if you do decide to grab the game is BC2 configurator, it does a much better job with some of the settings especially the controls. Also, you'll have to update the game after you install it and the in-game updater is rather slow but you can download the update directly from EA with this link - http://static.cdn.ea.com/dice/u/f/bfbc2/Static/BFBC2_PC_Client_R11_795745_Patch.exe --- Phenom II X4 960T | 8GB Mushkin Silverline | XFX HD 6850 Add me on BC2: xEverdred
I did some checking before I bought BC2 because it's getting older so I wanted to make sure people still played and apparently Vietnam is pretty much dead. I suggest passing on Vietnam, here's the servers that are up for it and they're basically a wasteland - http://www.gametracker.com/search/bc2/?query=Vietnam&sort=c_numplayers&order=DESC

I seriously need to start playing this game full time on Xbox and PC. I think this game deserves more support. BF3 is becoming a pain in the ass. It lacks the fun BC2 had and the skill + strategy. --- Forum is now up and running. http://gamingpyro.omgforum.net/
