No machine is available to test lower settings.Game SummaryQuick Overview:Battlefield 2 is the sequel to the top selling game Battlefield 1942. Instead of having World War 2 combat battlefield 2 takes place in modern warfare. The game is strictly a multiplayer game. The purpose of the game is a shooter game where multiplayer join and play against each other on two teams. To objective of the game is to defeat the other team by capturing all the flags on the map. Capturing flags on the map causing the other teams tickets to reduce once all tickets are gone the team wins.A single objective to playing the game long tern is to gain points by killing and capturing flags. All points are stored on the Battlefield 2 game servers which are added with total points from all players. The player can gain levels and experience by earning more points. Story Line:The main story of the game revolves around three teams, The United States, Chinese, and Middle East Coalition. As a player the user will join one of these teams for a battle. Each battle or map will only have two of the three armies. Each map has a storyabout why there is a conflict for the two nations. The story will setup a purpose for one nation to be attacking or defending, or a power struggle to control key territory.Player’s Role:The player’s role is a single member of a fighting force with other online players. The player will have the option to work alone to achieve a goal or work with other online players on the team to achieve the goals.The player takes the identity of a military officer who can specialize in a type of weapon. There are seven types of weapons to choose from and you then take the battlefield as that style of player. The player will also be affected by the country that theyare fighting with. Each country has a different style of character even though the weaponclasses are the same.Installation:Once a computer meets the minimum requirements the product may be installed. The game has an auto run sequence once the disk is placed in the CD drive. Insert disk one and select install to begin. Select install on the menu that appears. Once install has begun it will ask for two more disks during the install. Once all disks are installed the user may go online and update the software to the most current version. When the software is updated start the game by placing disk one in the CD drive and select play from the menu. An account must be created by providing a username and password. Once an account is created the game may be played.User Interface:The interface is controlled by the mouse and keyboard. During game play the user has the option to use the mouse or not but the keyboard in required. The mouse is mainly used for aiming the firearm. The buttons on the keyboard are pre-assigned for thegame but may be changed in the settings menu to assign which ever buttons are easier to use. A command may be assigned one or two buttons on the keyboard. Game Play: The game is designed to be play online but may be played offline. The offline version of this game is a practice forum for the player to go up against the computer. Since the online and offline play is the same with the only difference being live or computer players the description will be for both.The user begins game play by selecting a map to play. Map selection will influence the countries to select from and the layout of the world to move around. Once amap is selected the player will choose a side. Each side to choose has visually different appearances but game play is essentially the same. Once a side is choose the player will select a weapon package. There are seven weapon packages to choose from each using a different style of gun. For this description the use of the guns will be the same.When the player is finished selecting all his options he takes the field of battle. The player chooses a spot on the map to appear where their team controls a flag point. Once the player appears on the map they are ready free to do combat. Combat is free to occur anywhere on the given map on the screen. If a player goes too far off the map awarning appears on the screen and the player has a short amount of time to get back in the field of play. The screen will show a first player view of the player with hash marks on the center of the players view. The hash marks are the players targeting system. When the player wishes to fire there weapon they point the hash marks and the object and press the fire button. If the player targets an enemy or hostile object the hash marks will change color to red indicating a target. When the player fires the weapon and hits the target extrahash marks appear on the screen indicating a hit. Indicating a hit does not mean there is damage occurred on the target, the weapon used might not be powerful enough.The player has two bars on there screen. The first bar is the ammo bar which indicates to the player a limited amount of firepower before they run out of ammo and become defenseless. The second bar is the health bar. When the health bar reaches zero by excessive damage incurred they will die. Once a player dies they will need to wait 15 seconds until they can become alive again. When the player comes back to life they muststart at a friendly spot once again.Game play will be directed towards the players trying to achieve the goal of capturing as many flags on the map as they can. To capture a flag the player must stand in the radius of the flag for a period of time without dieing. It the player dies the must tryagain from the start. Capturing more flags than the other team for a longer period of timewill be what it takes to win. Scoring:The singular goal of the game is to defeat the enemy by causing their score to go to zero. This is caused by controlling more flags for a longer period of time. The outside goal of the game has a vast scoring system. The player can score points by playing the game and accomplishing goals.
