Alpha Project is a battlefield 2 modification which goals are to bring back all the features that were left out in the retail game.
The gameplay style of the mod is a mixture of arcade and realism and features shown on the first trailers and screenshots of battlefield 2
This mod is a perfect little thing - it changes the game so that it is far more playable and enjoyable than vanilla BF2.
Proper damage and accuracy in this mod are nicely balanced so that you actually can kill things if you aim and shoot - in vanilla BF2, you're lucky if you can get 2 shots on an enemy with a rifle when prone, sometimes even the first flies off elsewhere; and when it takes 5-6 shots to bring an enemy down, it's horrific. This mod fixes this nicely; not so realistic that everyone is dying all the time, but balanced almost perfectly so that guns are deadly and accurate.
The 3D ironsights are a lovely touch, as are the mounted weapons on both vehicles and defensive emplacements - these are now actually USEFUL!
Only major thing I've picked up on so far is the UH60's minigun controls are painful; almost impossible to use.
If only more people played this - not a mod that changes your game too much, but much more like how vanilla BF2 should be!
This mod has almost everything I've always wished to have from Battlefield 2. Epic teamwork, a wide array of weapons, amazing sounds, new effects like the sandstorm, improved gameplay, this mod features it all.
I have only played it with bots yet, but I'm sure multiplayer will be even more fun!
-Super exciting (to me then)
-Right selection of weapons
-Epic sound effects
-You adapt more to the environment than vanilla BF2
-Pickup kits are nice
-Right selection of maps
-I could state some more, but I'm too lazy actually.
-At highest settings this mod forces me to run it in a window with my low/medium settings account. But this is a problem with almost every conversion mod.
I feel the same amount of fun as playing BF2 for the first time.
This definitely belongs in my list of best BF2 mods, along with Project Reality and Forgotten Hope 2.
The beta was stunning already, im sure the next version with the customisation will be even better! Im really glad with this mod! super stable, HQ content and fun gameplay! 10/10
one thing though, the snipers could have more of a pack-n-punch, but thats personal preferences, so its not making my rates down ;)
