Summary

The maps are awesome and I love playing ALL of them.What surprises me most is how wide open the maps are in this booster.When EA said we were going to be fighting on American soil,I was thinking it would be inside major cities with tons of skyscrapers and unlimited hiding spaces.I thought it would be a snipers paradise. Thats not the case in AF.The Eastern coastal map has a a huge highway that runs down the center of it, It's so wide open, I swear we're playing two games here instead of one. My next favorite is the night map. It's got a ton of wooded areas and snow. But what I like about it, is that to get in certain areas, the roads are extremely narrow. So when the enemy comes rolling on in with their tank convoy, your squad can setup a perfect (and fun) ambush! It really sucks for snipers though.The nozzle flash will give you away quicker than an informant. The last map is set in the country. I like this map too because (again) it's so wide open. The only reason I rank it third is because there aren't enough vehicles on it. And when they called this booster Armored Fury, believe me, it is because theres tanks everywhere. I really wish there were more maps, but these 3 are fun enough.

Summary

10 - 4 = as before described in the main battlefield 2

10 - 1 = Again, EU refers to British Army, right? if it is so, how the hell on earth did the Germany Leopard Tank L2A6 gets involved in the Euro Fighters? IMAO! Because British Army uses Challenger 2 main battle tank which it is a joint venture R & D with Germany. Reason : Voice is British Accent. And I still prefer UK Challenger 2 tank.
Also, UK army does not uses buddy vehicle, hummer and APC Lav25. lol. VERY few MAPs!

10 - 1 = Unpopular with consumer due to online download. Wondering who the oversmarted Dog poo's ideal of using EA's downloader Manager to purchase this boaster pack? Reason can tell from the Multiplayer mode is not popular with the ranked server around the globe because customer alway prefer to own thing physically after purchasing. BF2 and BF2 Special Forces are more popular on the multiplayer ranked server. Don't like the connection account when using this game. Prefer log in when going for multiplayer mode. Prefer not to log in for casual single play cos good for those does not connect online 247/365

10 + 2.5 = Finally, this expansion is merged with the main BF2 except BF2 special force. Wondering why EA does not patch the BF 2 Special Force to merge with the main BF2?

10 + 2 = Great Armoured Fury Warfare, great armour warfighting. Vast landscape of playing. Great single play mode.

Therefore :
10 - 4 - 1 - 1 + 2.5 + 2 = 8.5

Summary

Just a year after the release of Battlefield 2, EA is ready to release the second of their booster packs, Armored Fury. As the title suggests, Armored Fury puts an emphasis on tank combat but that doesn't mean that there's not plenty of fun to be had by grunts and flyboys. Armored Fury isn't quite as massive a pack as last year's Special Forces but its new maps and new vehicles (not to mention its ten-dollar price tag) make it a very attractive proposition for Battlefield 2 players.

The new booster pack finally brings the fight to the United States. After fighting in far-flung lands, the US Marine Corps find themselves defending America from a two-pronged attack. The Chinese have landed in Alaska and are preparing to seize an important port complete with its oil pipeline. Meanwhile, the MEC have landed on the East Coast where they're struggling to gain control of the rivers and highways that will lead them to Washington, DC. There are three new maps here, each of which depicts a unique area in the conflict. While it would have been nice to see fights taking place in familiar locations like San Francisco or Washington, DC, the maps in the booster pack make for some intense fighting in familiar surroundings.
In Operation Midnight Sun, players take part in a nighttime invasion of an Alaskan port. The Chinese have established a beachhead at Valdez and are now pushing inland. After securing a nearby town, the Chinese have to push across a wide river to seize positions held by the US Marines. While planning their own assault across the river, the Marines will also have to consider how to defend the massive pipeline and oil refineries near their starting location.

Operation Harvest sees the MEC pushing through Pennsylvania Dutch country. The fight will rage across vast wheat fields, amid quaint farmhouses and silos and even a grain loading operation near a railroad line. Visually, it's the best level of the bunch, perfectly capturing the feeling that you're fighting for land that is undeniably American. As an added treat, there are some massive storm clouds overhead. Though it doesn't affect the gameplay, it adds tons to the flavor of the level. Things are very intense in Operation Road Rage. Here the MEC and the USMC are fighting over a crucial highway that grants access to a number of important targets on the East Coast. The whole map is dominated by a massive cloverleaf intersection and a long stretch of highway. The flag in the middle is on an elevated section of highway making it very hard to sneak your way onto it. As long as the defender can defend in both directions, you're basically stuck with gaining the objective through sheer weight of numbers. Though that's the main objective, fighting is sure to spill over into a number of surrounding areas, from the crowded strip mall to a pleasant suburb development.
Over the last few days EA has been hosting matches for industry types. From our experience in those matches, these new maps are just as balanced and exciting as the existing ones. We had many back and forth matches where the winning side only had a handful of tickets left. There are bound to be small imbalances that appear once thousands and thousands of people start playing but, so far, the new maps seem very even.

Though Armored Fury is a tank-focused game, that doesn't mean that infantry can't be effective. Sure, they still can't go toe-to-toe with a T90, but with a little forethought and a little caution, there's no reason an infantry soldier can't stay alive long enough to make a difference on the battlefield. The designers have made it easy on the poor infantry by providing lots and lots of cover at each flag point.










Armored Fury has amazing maps but little else so is it worth the cash?

Summary

Armored Fury is the second of two booster packs for the game Battlefield 2. The first ,Euro force, had heaps of new content in the form of a new army and 3 new maps. Armored Fury only possess new maps and a handful of new vehichles so does it need to have the same price as Euro Force? Normally the answer for a game would be no but the 3 new maps are some of the best you'll ever see.

All 3 take place at various locales throughout the US. The first Midnight Sun is a USMC-PLA map that takes place across two sides of a river. Its fun and combines many of the elements that make the game great. The other two Operation Road Rage, a fight for control of a highway junction and Operation Harvest which takes place in the Pennsylvanian countryside are amazing with heaps of armor and air power and thankfully infantry aren't helpless either thanks to clever use of terrain.

A few new vehicles make appearances as well such as muscle cars and semi trailers which are mostly gimmicks lacking both armor and weapons but the new attack bombers and scout helicopters which act like pilot-able UAVs are useful and fun.

The Bottom Line: The game just barely justified its price but you'll still have heaps of fun.




Another good expansion pack to Battlefield 2, but this expansion has less content then the other 2.

Summary

Armored Fury is another booster pack that adds three new maps to Battlefield 2. This booster however does not include a new faction or new weapons.

This booster packs brings back the American team as the battle starts to take place in America. The three maps are really fun to play on, and it is good to see the American team back in Battlefield. In this booster pack, the battle comes to America. This booster pack is short like Euro Forces so it does not last long, and this expansion also adds directly to Battlefield 2. The maps in this game are a lot of fun to play on, and will keep entertained for a while. My one complaint is that there aren't any new weapons.

The graphics still look good like in all the other Battlefield 2's, but the graphics are started to look dated, and the sound still sounds great.

If you want some new maps, or the American team back then you should play Battlefield 2 Armored Fury.
