The Battle Grounds 2(BG2) is a Half-Life 2 multiplayer modification based on the revolutionary war. It is the sequel to the popular HL1 mod with even more features and possibilities. The British Army and its Native American tribal allies engage in battle against the United States Continental Army and local militia forces. Interactivity is a very important factor in this mod and team play is as important as ever before. Take aim and fire muskets, prepare bayonets and take control of the battlefield to succeed in your campaign for final victory. Combat will vary from long-range rifle marksmanship to brutal close quarters hand-to-hand melee fighting. You will need a mix of first person combat skills and quick-thinking strategy to survive. So prepare yourself to do battle for your side and to meet the enemy head-on. Only one side can be victorious.
In my own personal opinion, this mod is easily one of the best.
The characters are well made, and the gun models don't "hurt my eyes" like some of the other mods (they actually knew what they were basing their weapons off of on this one.)
The accuracy of the guns is perfect. - You have to compensate for the bullet being "way the hell off" and aim a little off on purpose to actually hit your target, and the reloading animation is great as well (takes forever to reload, just like it did back then.)
The sounds are great, the maps are "OK" (almost all of them are just community player-made so they aren't as great as an actual developer) but nice nonetheless.
Overall this mod gets a 9.5/10 from me. (if only I could add the .5 to the rating). - The only thing preventing it from getting the full 10/10 is just a few glitches i've had then getting stabbed with a bayonett through a wall, etc.
Classic. This mod is one of the greatest I've seen out there. It is well made and completely original. The gun play is nothing you have seen before which makes it refreshing. The community is also amazing. Everyone (mostly) corporates to form a line when the admins call a linebattle. If its the intense linebattles or just playing around this mod is one that I will always remember.
