    Just been playing a map called Dalian Plant

    and its awesome, the americans start from one end of the map and the MECs start near the plant which is surrounded by buildings. roads etc.

    Its pretty much 100% ground combat, tanks can be used but its so easy to pick them off with anti tanks as you can pop out from behind the buildings

    Superb :clap:

    betamac i hate you so much :devil: my most anticpated maps are strike on karkland (think thats it) because its based on infantry combat with a sand storm and loads of trash and upturned cars :) another im looking forward to is FuShe Pass and operation clean sweep. my only problem with the maps was pointed out by the gamespy review, theyre all the same freakin maps. there dosnt seem to be much variation in the way they look and feel. hopefully a good mapping community will sort that :D a minor flaw in what will be a great game. got mine ordered at gameplay so should be here soon here's hoping

    on planetbattlefield.com some one has started on a russian mod so id assume a british one would be around very soon. one thing i like about the game is the mod tools are so extensive you can make a new game so to speak ie 1942 - DC :D this is my 1st BF experience and loving the demo alot more now.

    I ordered this and GTA : San Andreas from simplygames.co.uk
    So far both games have shipped 5 days before release date, but I chose standard delivery when I ordered which is a 2-3 day delivery option and free. I'm not sure if they post the next day delivery the same day as the 2-3 day delivery stuff.
    Should arrive tommorrow now :clap:

    Got a mail from Play this morning, mine has shipped as well ;)

    Can't wait to give it a go. I 've delibrately held off from downloading the demo.

    Is a headset a worthwhile investment for this game?

    Thanks

    Will be interesting to see who gets it first!

    Really into this game, started on the BF series with BF:Vietnam, but BF2 is soooo much better. Could play the demo just on its own for a while but can't wait for the game to come through the letter box.

    Mine arrived today from simplygames. :thumbsup:
    Had a bit of a session on it and it is great fun.
    Lots of practice required I think.
    A bit of a newby at the flying vehicles but I jumped into the co-pilot seat of a jet and went along for the ride. It was great fun seing the battle below raging away.
    I could have found something that gets me off Enemy Territory now. :smashin: .

    Sent CDWOW an email yesterday to see when they would be dispatching my copy of BF2......reply from them today saying not till release date and to allow up to 7 days for delivery! :mad:

    How cr@p is that?Email promptly sent back:cancel my order please.

    edit:in fairness,their game supply maybe a bit slow but their customer service is still superb,within half hour of sending that e mail I had a reply saying the order was cancelled and the money refunded.Think Ill just stick to getting my dvd's from them in the future :D

    I think they are all likely to be about the same price, but you could try the likes of game, gamestation etc.

    Also PC World sometimes have offers on newly released games, don't know if they have on BF2 though.

    Its a Athlon xp 3200 with 1 Gig of memory and an ati 9800 Pro 128 meg. I havent upgraded it since the start of last year, I hope this plays ok :rolleyes:

    it will be fine. trust me the specs they quoted is to cover their own ass, its not as system consuming as people thought. it runs maxed out 1280x1024 on my system at like 80-100 FPS plus thats with the full AA and AF. there is still some life in the old dog that is the 9800 you will be fine. 1gb of ram is plenty as well !

    I'd love my copy to arrive from Play by the weekend, we can hope!

    Been playing the demo for the past couple of days. Still lost on certain aspects, but superb fun none the less. Just one tip, if you ever see me as the pilot of a helicopter...DON'T GET IN!!

    Just got home from work and found my copy of Battlefield 2 on the door mat :clap: quite suprised at the early shipping. From Gameplay BTW.

    With weather like its been today it's a few beers and a BBQ then give the game a blast later tonight.


    **********************************************************

    Just a thought - I'm installing this on my machine which I'm running XP64 - I will report back If I encounter any problems.
    :rolleyes:
