A couple weeks ago I got the opportunity (finally) to play the new Battlefield game's demo, BF:2142. It is created with the same engine as its predecessor, and is an OK game. BF2 has, for some unknown reason, progressively run slower and slower on my computer. And I seem to not be alone by checking some of the Battlefield forums occasionally. 2142 also runs fairly slow on medium-low graphic settings... Needless to say, I am disappointed. Mostly, because the game runs like crap-o-la on my machine, and it probably shouldn't.
Some have griped that 2142 is merely a large "mod" for BF2, which is I suppose, a valid argument. Hopefully some of the bugs from BF2 will be gone, but I would have really liked to see this game in a different light than what it has shown so far. I will have to say, I have no idea why a company would push a demo of a product the way they did. The two days that I got on to play the demo, the master server probably kicked me 8 times. Not to mention, 3 times it took over 5 minutes to login or time-out. If the demo is supposed to represent the final game, I sure as hell wouldn't buy it, but Alex says that the game is better than how the demo played... Sometimes it feels like good games are just too few and far between.
