Welcome to Project Reality: Battlefield 2 (aka PR:BF2), a free to download game modification for the Battlefield 2 (aka BF2) retail Windows PC game. The focus of this mod is to rework the original game engine developed by Digital Illusions of Sweden (Dice) within legal and feasible constraints to create a more realistic combat environment for the gaming community. This includes adjusting various game play elements including physics, visual effects and overall game play formats. Along with changes to how the game handles, the Project Reality team has been introducing British, Insurgent, IDF forces, Canadian, and Russian factions, plus a number of community assisted factions are currently in the works to introduce even more factions to the virtual battlefields. This Mod is not for the masses, due to the fact that it has a much higher learning curve then your classic arcade game. This is the real deal.
Don't get me wrong, I love realism..
In PR:BF2, you'll find out that, even with the new environments, factions, equipment and content, nothing much has changed.
Battlefield 2 was great, awesome, we all know this, but Project Reality only insists on itself to be a hero when it comes to being the great mod that it obviously is; even if there is a great amount of realism and creativity involved and added to the game, that's it.
The mod is amazing, it is, but I don't get overjoyed like others do in other reviews. This game is only fun to play if online, and isn't usually too fond of new players, so expect a lot of hatred from senior players if you're reading this and are a newcomer.
Again, the mod Insists on Itself; it holds the review ranking and excellent hype ratio to mask its actual realism. It doesn't excite me, and almost demonizes other mods for not being like it, to discourage others from being excited about what they were previously playing.
If it wasn't so popular, more people would pay attention to other mods, instead of being either redirected or trapped here.
:1 took me some courage writing this, as the "-" marks will come my way without a doubt. Meh.
The game is really complex and has some flaws...
And you have to wait centuries to take a vehicle, maps are huge but have generally too few transports, player number is too small to make realistic fights so maps feel empty most of the times.
Also you need specific kits to drive vehicles.
