Why you SHOULD now dig out your copy of BF2

I discovered today what makes BF2 possibly the game of the decade.
No, it isn't BF2 itself, but a mod for it, called Point of Existence.

My God, it is good. Seriously, seriously good.
It is a massive download weighing in at 1GB, perhaps someone could shove it on AOA Files?
http://www.pointofexistence.com/

The game has completely changed BF2. The maps are new, and very very good. One map is simply a valley of thick, dense forest. German Forces and Ukraine Forces clash in the middle, resulting in explosive fighting (and seriously, it is EXTREMELY GOOD) that reminds me of the battles in Germany in WW2.
The vehicles are an amazing load of fun. We all know the tanks in BF2 are a bore, and the APCs are the only things that are really "explosive" and have such poor armour you get taken out easily.
Well, POE has about 20 different tanks.

You heard. Twenty. They are also extremely fun, they have miniguns, rocket launchers, heat seeking missiles...and its incredibly explosive.

And the guns? Wheeee! They are fast, and loud. Unlike other game slike BF2 where the guns make pops and squeals, in OE they sound like machines guns in your ears! It is so much fun to fire them.
Not only that but in POE they have changed some of the physics of the game. Firstly, explosions are bigger and more realistic. Secondly, when you shoot someone, they bleed. Thirdly, tanks and vehicles actually show damage much better than in BF2.
Whats also been dramatically improved is the sound. Rather than grunting when you die, your character lets out a crazy shriek that sounds truly terrifiyng, and like somebody really dying...

My goodness. Dig out your copy of BF2 and download POE now. You'll be hooked. Forget any thoughts you have on BF2, POE is a completely new game.
You can see how exicted I am because I'm not ty[ing properly!!!!!!!


99%!!

Lastly, may I add, that unlike BF2, POE lacks the arseholes that often ruin your game. Most of the players on the servers were brilliant, mature, proper players. There was actual teamplay. Hopefully, this game will stay that way.
I was so excited, I forgot about screenshots, so heres some from the website.

Don't worry. Pretty sure my IP was banned a long time ago on all EA servers.

Well yestoday i played BF2 after a long time,I normally play on the SuperServer.co.uk where nearly everyone is a well experianced player. BlazingUK also plays on that server alot. But this time it was full, so i got into another server where as soon as i lgged in a tank appeared infront, i thought i was lucky, but some1 else saw me get in the tank and stood infront of it, so to avoid team kill i reversed , he then put 2 C4's on me and boom.

I got so pissed i logged out, and made a new account. I got into a server with no punkbuster and I gotta say it was the best game of BF2 ever, I sent my Team mates to hell before they spawned. ended up witha score of -320 in the first round before i got kicked

That's not necessarily a good thing, Raptor. =(

That doesn't happen in POE. Whereas in BF2, everyone fights over the one tank and one APC, in POE there are literally tonnes of them to choose from.
I have got my screenshots. They are late because I had to work. I hope this completes my review!

I played the BF2 Demo quite a long time ago. I have stayed away from the game due to issues listed in this forum.

Does this add on help some of the crashing issues?

Will PoE play as a single player game or multiplayer only?

No single-player which is very unfortunate as that would seriously kick ass! But, the best map ever has to be Fallen. Seriously, that map just rocks. Set in a forest, the story is that a plane has crashed and the germans have to secure the area before the Ukrainians get there. Lots of grass and bushes so it's easy to spring until you run out of stamina, lay down and use the bush as cover. Loads of places to hide.

This mod seriously owns all mods and shows just how wrong people were about the BF2 engine :P
