Battlefield 2: Modern Combat - The Game That Isn't There

2 postsMember, Battlefield 3, Battlefield Member
Battlefield 2: Modern Combat is one of the best online games that you cannot play, EA has shut down the servers for 3 versions Xbox, PS2 and Xbox 360. Almost no one talks about BF2MC anymore but with my new series of videos I hope to change that. I am going to start uploading some Battlefield “lore” videos, my personal experience of what it was like to play this great game. I will also start uploading many clans matches that I recorded on the PS2 in 2012. I plan to do so live narration/commentary over these clan matches where I will describe what is happening in each match.

Here is my first video which is an introduction to the series.

    I am so glad that someone has finally done the leg work behind bringing my favorite all time online shooter into conversation. It has been years now with zero word from EA or anyone really and there is still a group of us who would love to see this game become available again for online play. In an age now with so many classics being reborn through reverse capability, BF2MC is without a doubt deserving of a reboot. As one of the most memorable and influential games in the mid 2000s, it is continually neglected by mention and neglected by gaming world in general. Probably because EA decided to let it die on the vine entirely.

    Now more than ever, EA needs to rebuild report with its customers and this would be a step in the right direction for the company. A small step, but a good one. I miss the COMMUNITY that we had on this game. And yes, we paid both for the game copy and for Xbox Live. For it to be taken down so prematurely and without ability for the gamers to source funds, resources or go to private servers left a very bad taste in our mouths. This is coming from a player who played countless hours on BF3, BF4 and BF1, not to mention someone who is a Premium player.

    I've spent the money, I've spent the time and I have enjoyed every Battlefield since. But I would source time and funds to see this game rebooted. It should have already been, in my opinion. Why not release the code and assets to us for it to be privately supported if it won't be rebooted? The product is that good. If it's copyright reasons, what good is a copyright for a dead game that was willingly killed by its copyright owning company?

    I hope to see this game reborn and rekindle old friendships and relive my favorite video game memories.

    I played the hell out of this game back on PS2! Still baffles me that today's BF games still haven't brought back in game clan support like this game did.

    I took it for granted that all new BF games would have a clan option, my plan was to move my clan over to the new battlefield games that came out. over 15 years later I am still waiting on a single game to have an in game clan option.

    Ahh Bridge Too Far and Backstab. Countless hours, countless!!! Playing this game. I loved it so much, my favorite battlefield next to BC2. I'm completely with you. A remastered version 60fps 1080p would be amazing. Take my money!!

    This game was everything when it came out on PS2 and when I found out it was out on the xbox 360 back in the day it was all i played! Shame it became overlooked by dice and EA. This game had amazing maps and soundtrack. One memory that sticks in my mind is flying the blackhawk back and forth from the beaches to the oil platforms.  I remember when they launch BF1 (at some launch event of maybe E3) they had remastered cover artwork of every game except BF2:MC.
