Absolutely stunning work.
Everything you can think of to put in a mod for SWBFII was put into this mod right here.
The new shell (icons, buttons, menu screens and the like) look great artistically, and I fell in love with the mod right there, and it just kept getting better.
Gameplay felt different than the traditional game (in the greatest way possible) with the addition of forced 3rd person, improved 3rd person camera angles, and well tuned unit stats.
The maps are all incredibly well done with a attention to even the smallest details, I didn't notice a single misplaced prop.
Sound work was fantastic, no missing weapon sounds, and each time I fired a shot it reminded me of my first playthrough of ME itself.
Overall, it's a great experience and deserves an 11/10, but I can't do that here. Great work Marth and co.
Exactly what AmericanCrime said:
"AN essential Bloodlines patch/mod. It fixes almost everything inherently wrong with the vanilla game and aims to enhance the experience as well by restoring content. Highly Recommended!!!!!"
This is the TRUE patch for any loyal fan of the game. There is absolutely no reason to not use this patch over any other patch, that claims to be, 'official'. All the mods for the game, use this patch as their foundation & regularly update to work alongside this masterpiece. There's 2 versions - a basic version of the patch & a plus version.
Basic is just bug fixes & optomization.
Plus restores original content from the game, changes item locations or characters & moves them around to ideal locations (this might confuse people who remember their original locations - & they're not there) but it makes more sense. Also, the difficulty has been made easier & the game is more flexible to play.
It's a perfect patch, that works with ANY version of the game. The patch comes with an easy installer & includes several years work of patching/changes - there's an extensive list. Basic can be installed & Plus can be installed on top, later, if you want it.
The patch can be uninstalled if you choose to play the original game non, bug-free but why would you do that? Lol. This patch is regularly updated, too, so expect new content being remade/restored & more fixes but right now, it's fixed pretty much everything.
Almost everyone who plays this game, uses this patch, as it includes 'Extras' - a HD mod that cranks up the graphics, a resolution patcher - to play Widescreen (a feature that was never made), amongst more. This isn't a mere patch, this is a dedicated group of fans hard work and a piece of art, in the eyes, of those who use it :) In all my life of PC Gaming I've never seen something quite like this, a patch, that's so much more... and breathes life into an amazing game! 10/10, 11 if I could :<)
the MOD is very good and really enhances battlefield 2 "vanilla" experience.
The new weapons design and animations are really excellent !
The artificial intelligence and the teamwork is good.
There is also the mod "expansion" Special Forces which I really appreciate.
I like this Mod ! 10/10
