    Great game completely ruined by the greed of the corporation that put it out. It's a fun mosh-pit of doom in Multiplayer matches and features bullet drop and delay along with destruction mechanics. However there is little to no explanation as how to use things in Multiplayer. People can also BUY the unlocks which is downright disgusting. Another crippling feature is the squads. The squadsGreat game completely ruined by the greed of the corporation that put it out. It's a fun mosh-pit of doom in Multiplayer matches and features bullet drop and delay along with destruction mechanics. However there is little to no explanation as how to use things in Multiplayer. People can also BUY the unlocks which is downright disgusting. Another crippling feature is the squads. The squads can only communicate with other squad members, and coincidentally NO SQUAD I HAVE EVER JOINED IN A SOLID WEEK OF PLAY HAD A SINGLE PERSON WITH A MICROPHONE. As a result, the Multiplayer is like a silent single-player with a cowboys and Indians feel to it with everyone rushing about aimlessly due to an inability to properly communicate. It's a game that's built around teamwork that allows one or two crippling features to break the game... Like not being able to talk. Wait does that even make sence? A teamwork game where you CANT TALK?! Don't these idiots go to COLLAGE to get a degree for this kind of work? I'm sorry, the only logic I can find behind such features would be to intentionally sabotage the game in order to fix the issues in a sequel, which is both disgusting and insulting to the gaming community and the creators should be ashamed of themselves.

    This game may have been worthwhile when it came out, but now days there is no reason to buy it anymore, the reason being multiplayer is dead nobody is online anymore, I was able to play two or three matches during my time with it which is probably do to the fact that Battlefield 3 is out, or maybe because of the limited modes and maps, but what I played of the multiplayer I really enjoyedThis game may have been worthwhile when it came out, but now days there is no reason to buy it anymore, the reason being multiplayer is dead nobody is online anymore, I was able to play two or three matches during my time with it which is probably do to the fact that Battlefield 3 is out, or maybe because of the limited modes and maps, but what I played of the multiplayer I really enjoyed and I would love to play more but sadly I can't because no one plays it anymore, and the campaign sucks, it's no fun at all, the story seems tacked on just to have one, ditches the sense of freedom that gave the originals its charm, and suffers from cheap deaths, one good thing about it is Marlowe and the crew of Bad Company are as likable as ever, it's just sad there mission isn't, it really pains me to have to give it this score because I can see from what little I was able to play that when multiplayer was popular it was the bomb, but now its dead, I guess like all good things, it had to come to an end.

  1. Not content to settle for second place, DICE throws down the gauntlet with Bad Company 2, delivering its best multiplayer package since Battlefield 2 and a remarkably improved single-player campaign that openly mocks its rival while cribbing from them at the same time. [Issue#203, p.84]
  2. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is one of the best shooters of this generation. The game has steel-solid mechanics, top gen graphics and an incredible multiplayer. Call of Duty has a new rival.

    Bad Company 2 as an online shooter is flexible and engaging, offering several features that the competition can only dream of. If you're looking for a more strategic and team-based change of pace, look no further. This is the game for you.
