A demo for Battlefield 2142 is available for download. I usually go to FileFront, I am sure you can find it all over. Also, in true EA fashion, you probably will need to download a new .dll something or other in order to play it, it has something to do with DirectX. Sorry I'm not more specific, but I just play with computers, I don't program them! Also, I have read that after you manage to get the demo working, it may crash to desktop. One possible fix is to disable the in game VOIP. This does not bode well for the this game, to say the least. When the demo is offered incomplete, and with crashing bugs....... Well, if I manage to get it running, at least it will let me decide if I want to spend the money for the full game.
