Battlefield 2142 and its Northern Strike expansion pack is one of the examples how multiplayer gameplay must be done for the game to stay interesting for very long time. BFBC2 mp looks less complex (dumbed-down) compared to BF2142. I really have no idea why DICE took a stepback. Maybe it is due to the fact console players have shorter attention span ;) I recommend anyone to try BF2142 right now! This game will die as soon servers are empty. There's no SP to review or talk about. It is just stupid bots and you have no access to the equipment that can be unlocked and tried only with your online profile.
