Battelfield 2 Demo Released


Recommended Posts


All servers are filled to maximum although this was released yesterday... however FileFront seem to be the best by a lengthy margin. I was downloading at 400kB/Sec (80% of my capable speed), but this could be down to an internal cap on downloads.

The File is around 546MB in size so if you haven't got a decent connection, either wait til magazines have it on their cover discs or ask a friend to dl it for you and burn it to cd.

User reviews of Battlefield 2 demo

Pros: This free demo provides hours of entertaining failed download attempts. Your pulse will rise when you read exciting messages like "Sorry! we are experiencing an unusually high volume of download requests," and "Servers are currently full."

Cons: It would be faster to get on a plane and travel to the "Gulf of Oman" vs getting to download and play this demo.

There's a lot of corrupt files floating around the net, as in when you download them, you'll be left with a 20MB file, or 300MB file so watch out for it, and be sure that it is the full size.

Its the right size. I did get one of those corrupt files from another site though....

There were a few on FileFront (the one I recommended :coolwink: ), Fileshack is decent but then you have to wait in a queue (was 68 minute wait when I checked yesterday).

I eventually got it from newsgroups in 20 minutes :dance2:
