It was a great game, but DO NOT BUY IT for Steam because It is not optimized. Let me explain:
If you had an account some years ago and you want to recover it, the first thing you should know is Gamespy was shut down. That means that it’s so hard to keep this account active unless you made a migration before to Origin, or you basically lost all the progress you made with your old account. I couldn’t find a solution for it yet.
But the worst part is, since the Gamespy is not working, you cannot create a new account either. That means... you can only play single player. So this is a multiplayer game played only single player, in 16 boot player maps. So 10€ for a 2005 game with the multiplayer disabled, is not a good deal.
I hope, I really hope Steam will fix this because I feel scammed...
Some people in the comments suggested to visit some webpages like (www.battlelog.co)
where they try to keep the game alive. You can do it if you want, it's a good way to take some advantage of the money you spent here.
But since I bought the game on Steam I was expecting to play the game on Steam, and not needing to get by on my own. At least I think the minimum Steam could have done is warning people before buying.
