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.
Played this for years and it's still one of the best mods that you can get for HL2. You may not find a lot of players playing this but those who are already there are dedicated and stay there, after some time you know all of them as if they were your neighbourhood friends.
I have to say, this mod was actually very fun. I liked a lot of the mechanics of the game, and I enjoyed the voice acting. But the reason I gave an 8 was because, a lot of the weapons need reanimating in my opinion. But other than that, the mod was awesome! PS Could I suggest a single player campaign, something kind of close to the movie The Patriot?
Battlegrounds is about the only mod where I can spend hours upon hours playing it without getting bored. It's just a real shame the community isn't larger, but even so, that isn't the games fault. So definitely 10/10 from me. ;)
