Battlefield 2142: Northern Strike review

Continue the fight in this worthy expansion pack

Pros

  • Newer Battlefield content
  • Snowy levels are pretty cool
  • New unlockable content

Cons

  • More update than expansion
  • Assault Lines only a tweaks Conquest
  • Not necessary for Battlefield experience

Even though we all know this expansion pack was probably a point on a marketing manager's graph of "projections" and "profit yields" before Battlefield 2142 was even released, we have to admit that the quality of the content on hand is above cynical expectation - in fact, we'll come right out and say it: Northern Strike is a good expansion pack.

It's not great (let's not get carried away), and we hate seeing an excellent online shooter receive only these meager content boosts (whatever happened to the proper expansions of old?). However, with three new maps, two new vehicles and one new game mode, Northern Strike is recommended for anybody who plays Battlefield 2142 with some degree of regularity.
