"A fun and addicting game"
Battlefield 2142 is set in an ice age where the two fractions, the European Union(EU) and Pan-Asian Collation (PAC), fight for living space that is now gone because of the icebergs that have taken it. Which is the story of this game. It may not sound like much, but, this game is all about the multiplayer.
Story mode N/A
There is no story mode in Battlefield 2142, just multiplayer mode. So lets get on with the multplayer modes, ok?
There is are two modes in Battlefield 2142, Titan mode and Conquest mode. In Conquest mode, you try to deplete the reinforcements of the opposing team by controlling capture points (cps). Some maps have that you need more than half to deplete the opponents reinforcements and others you need to control all of the cps to deplete. It is the same mode from Battlefield 2, if you buy the game and you have BF2, you buy the game for its other mode, the titan mode. In the Titan mode, you need to destroy the other team's titan. You do this by controlling missile silos that destroy hit the titan's shields. Overall, the gameplay is very good and VERY addictive.(see below)
The graphics in BF2142 run on the same engine as BF2, so the game is looks slightly outdated. However, just because the game looks outdated doesn't mean the game looks bad. If you have an older computer, you can lower the graphics. Anyways, the graphics aren't that bad.
The sound run perfect with the game setting. When the solders are far away, you hear static on the radio and if you are close, you hear their voice. The PAC speak in Russian, while the EU speak in British accent. However, I would think that there should be other languages, such as some German because other languages take place in the EU and PAC. However, despite these minor flaw, the sound is very good.
This game is the most addictive game I have played in a long time. You try to rank up in the game, and ranking up gives you a new piece of equipment to use. Because of that, you want to be the highest rank possible to get all the good equipment. Which means the older players of an advantage over the new player that got the game earlier that day.
Some things you should take warning in the game is that lag can be a problem, even if your computer's graphic card is amazing. There is a single player mode, which is a downsized mode of conquest because you get the same maps as multiplayer, but they are only smaller.
Overall, this game is great and if you have Battlefield 2, try the Titan mode at a friends house before you buy it. If you do not have BF2, It is a sure buy because you will be addicted to it for a extremely long time.
