  1. There's no denying the appeal of Bad Company 2's multiplayer. DICE is still expertly nailing down what it pioneered all the way back in 2002, and the experience remains far from stale. However, poor design in the single-player makes for a campaign that's not only lacklustre throughout, but cripplingly buggy at times as well.

The Single Player Campaign is the best in its class and the Multiplayer has some of those epic 'Battlefield' moments. And, the way that you can customize your 'classes' in a multiplayer game is much better than those of Call of Duty. It is definitely a better game than the first Bad Company and is worth the purchase. I could not disagree more with JohnD, as if one side has something such as a helicopter it can get frustrating getting killed over and over but it puts you into a hard situation that YOU have to deal with. Also, if you level up or unlock something in-game you get to change and use it, in-game. For a basic summary, best in it's class and I have played EVERY Battlefield game to date. This is incredible.

    I'd like to start off by saying that this game is spectacular in graphics and sound effects.Ok the sound effects really immerse you into I'd like to start off by saying that this game is spectacular in graphics and sound effects.Ok the sound effects really immerse you into the game, from the crunching of leaves under your boots to the sound of an explosion of an rpg when it hits right beside you. vedict for sound: outclasses mw 2 in that department by miles. Now the graphics ... are u kidding ... BFBC2>>>>>>>>>MW 2 again. ok now the gameplay, mw 2 is full of kids with squeaky voices and campers and feels more like its trying to win u over with novelty addons such as tac knife and perks such as lightweight , sleight of hand pro (quickscoping is a thing of the past in bfbc2 because the sniping is a whole lot more realistic.) and steady aim (encourages spraying). Where as bf bc 2 encourages teamwork and its only gives you the basic addons that u actually need for a gun such as red dot sight , sliencer and grenade laucher. My final verdict , dont waste your $80 on a piece of junk with poor gameplay and poor graphics buy bf bc 2 insteadu won't regret it. Full Review »

The story is very good innovative perhaps awesomeWhat a hell of a ride,DICE managed to put one awesome game and a original multiplayer. The story is very good innovative perhaps awesome ,well designed levels, many places where it develops like Russia< Bolivia etc ,. The multiplayer is very awesome many options, big maps, just what the tittle said Battlefield and is always Epic much better than a lot of other multiplayer if you want a war zone multiplayer, this is the pick .
