Battlefield 2: Modern Combat is a console version of the sequel of Battlefield 1942 and Battlefield Vietnam. The name suggests that we are dealing with a new generation of soldiers equipped with the latest technology and armed with deadly weapons.
Before we move on to the battlefield, we choose the side of the conflict: the United States, the European Union, China, or the newly formed Middle East Coalition. An impressive arsenal of modern weapons (roughly 50 types) such as assault rifles and missile launchers is available, along with about 30 military vehicles: jeeps, tanks (including M1A2), fast attack vehicles, hovercraft, helicopters, and fighter planes. Before the actual combat, we select the type of soldier in which we incarnate. It may be, inter alia: a storm trooper, sniper, engineer, member of the task force or support groups.
Finally, the most important aspect which is the possibilities of the multiplayer mode. Up to 24 soldiers can participate in a battle at the same time. They can communicate by means of headsets. Battlefield 2: Modern Combat for PS2, PSP and etc. includes all the options you need to have fun, for example creation of clans and extensive internal statistics. More than 10 extensive maps were prepared for the multiplayer mode.
However, beyond the multiplayer mode, there is also a single-player campaign in Battlefield 2: Modern Combat for PS2, PSP and etc., which contains specially prepared maps and options. The story takes place in Kazakhstan. During the game, we collect points that will grant us various improvements, such as night vision for a sniper rifle or acceleration for tanks. Thanks to the experience points, we are promoted to higher ranks in the military. We start as a “plain” private, but with luck we will soon command our troops as a general.
