does anyone here have BF2 cause i am seriously thinking about getting it are there any bad things to it or does it just flat out rule cause i am kinda sick of halo 2 on my xbox and i need more of a varity other than WOW on the PC
I think BF2 is great, although not without a few annoyances at the moment.
Although it hasn't affected me too much, there is a bug which my friends get where it quite often crashes back to desktop when loading some maps. If you buy it, also make sure you install the 1.2 patch, which fixes a problem with the server browser sometimes hanging.
It's also very easy to be killed when standing right next to a slow-moving vehicle - it only has to move towards you slightly and sometimes you just die instantly.
Overall though, I love it. The graphics and sound are a huge improvement over 1942/BFV, and the maps are quite diverse (although there are only 8 at the moment).
Being able to fly the Joint Strike Fighter on the larger multiplayer maps is pretty cool too.
IMO, the best new addition is the squad system though. You can join the same squad as your friends then, if you die, you can re-spawn with them wherever they are on the map, even if they're in a chopper or APC.
You really need at least a gig of ram to play it smoothly though. My total memory usage, with all the detail on max, is 1.3gb. With "only" a gig of ram in the machine, the HD was paging constantly and causing the game to stutter.
Here's a couple of pics to give you an idea of the graphics:

how many PPL can play on a single map?? is it more of a steath game with less ppl or is there more and a little more chaos? is it repitive will i get tired of playing it after a couple months? or does it change up pretty good?
Can be up to 64 on a map. I am still running with 512 mb of ram and it's running smoothly for me in 1024X768 with settings on medium. takes a minute or so to load a map however. The game flat out rocks though.
