The sequel of Special Force, Service name in U.S is Soldier Front, ranked 2nd place on FPS game ranking in Korea. Special Force2 is developed by Dragonfly and published by CJ E&M. The #1 FPS game in Korea is Sudden Attack. It has not changed for a few years.
Special Force2 started the commercial service on 11th of August. The start is pretty good so far. Because the game was built upon Unreal3 engine, differences between 1 and 2 are huge including better graphics and better game system. Of course, it requires better hardware to run the game smoothly. For example, Duel Core CPU and Geforce 8600GT above graphic cards are required to play Special force2.
Usually, new games are ranked in high when they start OBT and the commercial service. Therefore we need to keep paying attention on Special Force2 for a while to confirm 2nd. However, So far Special Force 2 seems just fine.
