B-Day (no, not bidet) for Battlefield 2


Well, Battlefield 2 is in my hot little hands right now. I had to get the CD version (3 CDs) because I don’t believe in preordering (it violates rule #1 of impulse buying, which is that if the goods aren’t miraculously present on the store shelf, I don’t pick them up and purchase them).


Now I just need those Nvidia X64 drivers to show up… c’mon! Pleeease!


[Update, 2:20am] Well… it’s pretty good, but I find myself wanting to play Joint Operations after I get annoyed at the infantry game. It’s all about the vehicles in BF2. Opinions may change with experience, but I’ll give it a 7/10 at the moment.

    I told you that JOPS was better, but you didn’t believe me. Now you are yearning.

    Joint Ops is great.. if you like being repeatedly gunned down by a heavily concealed sniper a half mile away.

    I *am* that sniper.

    It’d be even better if they’d fix the sound panning issues (once a sound has started playing, it maintains its location relative to you if you turn before it finishes, which is really disorienting).

    Fingers crossed for a next version…

    If you’re really worried about armor, you should play Special Ops, like 50% of the rest of the online community.

    I can’t play SO worth a damn, though. I’m just not that sneaky.

    Also w/r/t sound, do you have hardware and EAX enabled in the sound options?
