The year is 2142 and the dawn of a new ice age has thrown the world into a panic. The soil not covered by ice can only feed a fraction of the Earth's population. The maths is simple and brutal: some will live, most will die. In Battlefield 2142, players choose to fight for one of two military superpowers - the European Union or the newly formed Pan Asian Coalition - in an epic battle for survival.

50 EA games soon to lose support for multiplayer online.

EA have not found any alternative to the dying Gamespy service and a large number of games thus lose multiplayer support.
Gamespy has long been a household name for gamers, as numerous games, both PC and console, had multiplayer modes built on servers.
2014 marks the notoriously late for Gamespy, which also means that hundreds of games are in danger of losing support for gaming on-line.

Many developers and publishers, including Activision, Rockstar and SEGA has announced that they are working to find alternative solutions for games that use the Gamespy servers. Similar messages came from EA, which over the years have used Gamespy for many titles, but now the company has announced that they choose to flappers support in their Gamespy games.

Technical challenges and not least the fact that most of the games that use Gamespy start pulling on the oars, located behind EA's decision to allow multiplayer support across 50 titles die out. A variety of titles, such as F1 2002, EA Sports 06 to PC or Fifa Soccer 08-10 for the Nintendo DS, has hardly many active players, but the list also contains relatively popular games like Battlefield 2, Crysis 2 and Star Wars Battlefront 2.

PC games constitute a large part of the list, but Nintendo consoles are also strongly represented. Nintendo has not gone back on its decision to allow the many DS and Wii titles that use Gamespy lose multiplayer functionality, and EA games are no exception.

Popular titles loosing online multiplayer 30th of June 2014.

Overall it's a shame to see so many great titles loose official multilayer support, but with strong modding communities behind these titles, their legacy will reign on for years to come.

This mod alters the standard bf2142 mod and allows you to skip the opening movies in Battlefield 2142 while still being fully compatible with Punkbuster...

I've been playing BF2142 sine it came out it is better then BF2 By far, The loading time is 10 times faster, the unlocks, The Squads every thing is better but if you Prefer a modern combat game BF2142 isn't a game you should get. They have released patches lately for BF2142 that fixes these kicks from PB. But I'm unsure it has fixed all of them.

EA is so stupid.You wanna know why?They put PB(PunkBuster) in a cool game.Now every time I try to play on a server,PB kicks/bans me.Now I think I bought the whole stupid game for nothin.

Buy the game if you want to,but I wouldn't because PunkBuster is being a @$$.

I think PB should be called SB(StupidBuster lol)because SB/PB(however you want to call it)is stupid.

This game is a slap in the face to the Modding community.

EA has never been friendly towards modders, This game should of been a mod in itself.

But then again, that wouldnt be profitible for EA- scratch that!

I feel so sorry for you guys, You are shelling out $$$ for gameplay that can easily be replicated with a mod team.

The Half-life community would feel CHEATED if Valve shipped crap like this out the door.

This is the best game in the battlfield series yet! An overhauled game engine brings you improved graphics/sound/and physics! Also its debuger for moders is quite an advance from BF2. Although mod tools have yet to be released... The maps are masterpieces put together by the finest mappers in DICE, to give an outstanding experience! I purchased the download from EA LINK the day it was released, and 15 minutes later I was playing, and having a great time doing so, Thus; I give this game a 5/5

in short the game is pretty good but titan mode is just a rip off of UT2004 onslaught. the action is a little slow for me and it you diw you get respawned awy from the action with then taqkes forver to get back in.

Graphics and musc/sound is excellent.

One question? I have map alternative keys for some functions including invert mouse is ticked yet when using the vehciles it seem to on be able to use the default keys and invert mouse is unticked? am i right or have i just missed and option somewhere in the menu system?

Help on this would be appreciated

thanks in advance

Highest Rated (10 agree) 9/10

I would highly recomend this game to anyone who likes First Person Shooters.

It has an amazing Squad system, and the Squad Control is great.
The graphics are cool, it's future-istic kill'em all combat, and is GREAT for online play.

The only downside is that the Single-Player gameplay stinks, and could have been greatly improved upon, though I guess the main focus of the game is Multi-Player.

So, if you have a good internet connection, and enjoy intense combat, you would love this game.
