this game is old school. I bought the original disc from amazon. i installed it and set it as administer but only a black screen. the patches didn't work either and origin doesn't support this game anymore. this is a legit download that works !

Will this work on Win 2000?

For anyone running windows 8-10 and has Avast anti-virus and VLC media player. Disable your antivirus when installing, also the .bin file will register as VLC, so change the default opening app for the .bin to notepad. DO NOT OPEN THE NEW NOTEPAD BIN FILE. Click the setup.exe file and itll use .bin automatically. Congrats you can play :)

I am downloading with confidence.

Downloaded and tested. Unzip and launch the setup.exe file. The download includes Mac (OS) support, these files will not unzip on a Windows machine but are not needed. It includes HD support and is patched to go online immediately. Download with confidence!

One of the best FPS games of all time, i think this was inspiration for the new battlefield was goin to release the next year.

The multiplayer is still solid and the graphics don't hurt my eyes.

How I hate all the new Battlefields which left their roots behind and became colladoody.
This along with its expansions and Vietnam was the best. Long live this game.
