Battlefield 2 for PC is a continuation of the extremely popular PC FPS games entitled Battlefield 1942 and Battlefield Vietnam, as well as Battlefield: Modern Combat for PlayStation 2. The game focuses on a hypothetical armed conflict from the turn of the 21st century, when three factions war one another: United States, China, and the coalition of Middle Eastern states. Of course, each side has a rich arsenal of munitions, including small arms (M-4 rifle, M-9 pistol, etc.) and all sorts of vehicles (approximately thirty machines, including M1A2 Abrams tank, UH-60A Black Hawk helicopter, and the HMMWV vehicle ).
Virtual battlefields (detailed environments of very high interactivity) refer to real locations in various parts of the globe (urban areas, dense forest formations, etc.). Even over a hundred people can participate in a battle at the same time (the size of the map is determined by the number of soldiers present at a particular time). Military service runs not only in the frontlines, but also at the HQ, so both fans of shooting and seasoned strategists should be pleased. Making progress results in increasing the military rank which is required to unlock hidden surprises (e.g. additional types of weapons).
In addition to a completely new engine that generates complex 3D visuals, an advanced set of physic algorithms was implemented. The innovative system increases the battlefield realism by means of susceptibility of materials to penetration. We must therefore be careful while finding cover, because a wooden fence is not equal to a stone wall.
